Your body is naturally in a slightly alkaline state, with a pH of 7.35 to 7.45. To maintain health, your body tries to stay within this narrow pH range.
Fruits and Vegetables are alkaline forming foods, while meat and starchy carbohydrates and especially sugars and sodas are acid forming. To neutralize these acids, your body must use its stored minerals such as calcium, magnesium, manganese, potassium and sodium.
Alkalizing products provide a boost to your body's reserves of alkalizing minerals. By taking these, your body becomes more resilient to the health effects caused by acidity.
