Our body is similar to pools in 2 ways: humans and pools are both bodies of water (pun very much intended), and we both have a pH level that should be monitored and maintained. PHis for power of Hydrogen and shows the levels of Hydrogen ions in a given body
The human body wants to be balanced, and for us the balanced pH level is slightly alkaline. The scale is ranging from 0 – 14, the lower end of the scale is acidic, and the higher end is alkaline. The perfect spot for the bodies is 7.30-7.45. How do we incorporate alkalines into our regular diets?
