pH Values of the Human Body

Fluids in the human body function to provide digestion, lubrication, nutrient and oxygen transportation, and protection. To perform these functions, the acid levels must be varied to match the body function. Overall levels of acidity or alkalinity are measured on a pH scale and must be carefully controlled in each body fluid.

Body Fluids and pH Levels

Saliva, blood and spinal fluid all have a pH of about 7.4. This,nearneutral level prevents tissue damage that may be caused by levels at either end of the pH, scale. Proton pumps that regulate the hydrogen ions in the stomach keep the pH between 1.5 and 3.5. This highly acidic fluid breaks down food and allows digestion to continue. Alterations in any fo these systems can lead to serious medical conditions. For example, a pH imbalance in the mouth leads to tooth decay, and alterations in the blood can lead to breathing difficulties. When stomach acid gets beyond the protective sphincter in the esopñagus, heart bur and a sour taste may be experienced. The burning sensation is caused by acidic damage to the tissue in esophagus, and continued acidity may lead to irreversible changes and cancer.

YOUR BODY'S NEED FOR WATER

70% of your body is water (approx. 55 to 60 litters)-without it, you would be poisoned to death by your own waste products. 95% of the time when you are foggy or unclear it is due to lack of water. Dehydration is the number one trigger of daytime fatigue, nausea, headaches, lethargy an constipation. Thousands of Australians risk kidney damage, impaired liver function and urinary tract infection by not drinking enough plain water. Just a 5% drop in body water will cause up to 30% loss of energy in the average person.
