Body pH Balance Vs its Effects - After the metabolism and breaking down of food in the human body, certain residues are left and this normally yields either acidic or alkaline PH potentials.

These residues have a strong influence on the pH levels of the body and have the potential of leading to adverse weight problems, unfavorable athletic performance, and lower energy levels as well as premature aging especially if it is continuously too alkaline or acidic.

Maintenance of the body's alkaline and acidic balance aids in improving the body's energy and sleeping levels, keeping off diseases and ensuring that the body maintains healthy weight.

Body pH can be described as the body's requirement to maintain a particular pH level. The pH measurement scale ranges from 0 to 14 with the latter being very alkaline, 7 being neutral and 0 very acidic. The pH of the human body's blood retains a level of 7.35-7.45, which is slightly alkaline.
