Alkaline for Life® Blog

Another consequence of chronic low-grade metabolic acidosis is premature aging. This is due in part to the fact that even a slight tilt toward metabolic acidosis impairs cellular function. By impairing [...]
Through exercise we bring oxygen into the body and excrete acids (carbonic acid) in the form of carbon dioxide. Shallow or uneven breathing patterns limit the intake of life-supporting oxygen [...]
Researchers have long noted that chronic low-grade metabolic acidosis is associated with a multitude of degenerative diseases, including osteoporosis, kidney disease, hypertension, aging muscle [...]
Various multi-layered physiological mechanisms act to ensure that the pH values of the cells, fluids, tissues, and organs of the body are properly maintained. They do so by neutralizing and eliminating excess acid buildup [...]
pH can be measured using a simple at-home test that checks the acidity of your urine (first-morning urine is the one to measure). Instructions on how to use this paper are simple and easy to understand [...]
Balance is the key word characterizing the “Alkaline Life.” Balance implies that both acid and alkaline biochemical factors are essential for life. In fact, you can’t have one without the other, and alkaline biochemical [...]
Most of us spend the vast majority of our time in our heads with our attention directed towards past events or thoughts of the future. Absolute focus on the present moment is lost amid often uncontrolled wanderings of [...]
An alkaline diet is largely a plant-based diet. Eating alkaline is an important way of eating to prevent today’s epidemic chronic degenerative diseases such as heart disease, stroke, hypertension, cancer, and osteoporosis [...]
Within the body, extreme systemic acidosis is incompatible with life. For example, diabetic acidosis can be life threatening. More important to us here is the fact that even slight acidosis, a slight acidic tilt, brings with it [...]
