Overview

Too much acid in the body affects the organs, tissues, and cells, which have dire effects on their proper functioning, as they are vital to the body’s existence. However, being the exact opposite of acidic, alkaline can also prove detrimental. As such, the only way for the human body to remain healthy is by maintaining a balance between acid and alkaline levels. For us to be able to know what that balance is, we must be able to measure acidity.

Have you ever heard of the pH value before? Well, understanding the pH value is the first step to measuring the acidity in one’s body. PH, which stands for the ‘power of Hydrogen,’ simply means the number value of hydrogen ions in a liquid. Since most if not all of the foods we consume contain liquid, we can also find out the number value of hydrogen ions in our foods, or the pH value of our foods. Ideally, this helps in determining the pH value of our bodies, thus knowing our acid numerical content. Did I lose you there? Well, let me tackle it from another point of view. Acidity in the body is measured by the pH value.

Importantly, there is a pH scale that runs from 1 to 14. This pH scale is divided between acids and alkaline, of which the mid-point is neutral, 7.0. So, from 1 to 6.9 is acidic and from 7.1 to 14 is alkaline. Whilst it is ideal for the body to be neutral, the food we consume on a daily basis makes this impossible, but the optimal level is between 7.35 and 7.45 pH! With that being said, the lower the pH value, the more acidic the substance is, and that is exactly how you measure acidity.

Meet the Author

Russell Dawson grew up in a household that ate a balanced diet as his mother made the effort to provide foods that were nutritious and filling. He evens remembers that she had a wonderful garden in the backyard that provided the family with fresh vegetables and herbs. When he became an adult he made a concerted effort to keep eating healthy.
When he met his wife Rina, she introduced him to the Paleo diet and modified it even more to be totally gluten free. He gladly tried it and was that much happier for it. He was so happy with the dietary change that he made the decision to share what he was experiencing with as many individuals as he could.
He then wrote a text that outlined all of the great benefits that the Paleo diet had and how in the long run it was the healthier choice to make.
