PH balance, which refers to the “optimal” balance of acidity and alkalinity in the body’s blood, is also called a state of homeostasis. Human homeostasis refers to the body's ability to regulate its internal Physiology to maintain stability in response to fluctuations in the outside environment (food, water, air quality, etc.). The liver and kidneys help maintain homeostasis. The liver is responsible for metabolizing toxic substances and maintaining carbohydrate metabolism. The kidneys are responsible for the regulation of blood pH, regulating blood water levels, re-absorption of substances into the blood, maintenance of salt and ion levels in the blood, and excretion of urea and other wastes. The most critical pH balance is in the blood.
When you add Intact Digest™ with Nutri-Mastic™ as part of your daily diet for maintaining health and wellness, it will play an important role in the function of the liver, kidneys, boosting red blood cells, increases absorption of amino acids, enzymes and iron, mobilizes calcium, supports the digestive system, muscles, joints, ligaments tendons, immune system, hunger control, supports pH balance and promotes overcoming fatigue. >> Read more about Nutri-Mastic™
Normal blood pH has a very small window of acid/alkaline pH balance. Blood pH must range between 7.35 and 7.45. This means that there is an adequate amount of oxygen in the blood. Any slight decrease in PH will result in lower oxygen levels in the blood and, therefore, in the cells. Any drop in pH, no matter how slight, is the beginning of a disease state and affects when and how we age. All other organs and fluids will fluctuate in their range in order to keep the blood at a strict pH between 7.35 and 7.45 (slightly alkaline).
The body constantly adjusts the tissue and fluid pH to maintain this very narrow pH range in the blood. A normal pH of all tissues and fluids of the body (except the stomach) is slightly alkaline. The stomach PH is much more acid than the intestinal pH because the stomach needs an acid environment (hydrochloric acid) to break down food for digestion. Whereas, the flora (good bacteria) of the intestine need a more alkaline environment to assimilate and process the nutrients from the foods digested by the stomach.
PH Imbalance refers to a condition of high-acidity (acidosis) or high-alkalinity (alkalosis). High acidity is by far the most common scenario, and the one that can result in some or many of the health conditions listed below:
- Extreme fatigue, aches, and pains early in the morning
- Bad breath and a coated tongue early in the morning
- Overall body aches, pain and muscle cramps
- Mental confusion, and difficulty concentration and memorizing
- Difficult digestion which frequently interferes with your sleep
- Excessive sweating
Diet is probably the most important change we can make to balance our natural pH. We need to eat at least 75% alkaline-forming foods. The average all-American diet consists of about 80% acid-forming foods! Because processed and refined foods are extremely acidic to our systems, the body creates a buffering system (a chemical process to protect the body from being harmed by the acids). This buffering process requires the use of many nutrients from the body, including electrolyte minerals (organic potassium, magnesium, sodium, calcium, to name a few).
Electrolyte minerals are vital to the metabolic functions of our body's system. When we have a sufficient reserve of electrolyte minerals, the buffering process (the cushioning and removing of unwanted acids from our systems), is not a problem. When we are young, we usually have sufficient reserves. Over time, the electrolyte mineral reserves can become depleted by ingesting too many processed and refined acid-forming foods, or from excessive mental or emotional stress. When we run short of electrolyte minerals, our body is no longer able to maintain an efficient homeostasis (a state of equilibrium).
The body has a hierarchy of priorities for survival. Second only to breathing and sustaining our heartbeat, the most important metabolic function that our bodies perform is maintaining a specific pH. The most important PH level that the body must regulate is the blood’s pH level. The body’s blood pH level must be maintained at 7.4 (slightly alkaline). If it varies more than a point, death can result from a coma or a seizure. In order to maintain the blood’s critical pH balance, the body will compromise less important functions. Once the electrolyte reserves become depleted, the body begins to rob these electrolytes from the various organs and systems of the body to maintain the blood’s PH level. This is where the imbalance begins.
The following are examples of altered pH levels and the resulting imbalanced internal body system: If the bowels and intestines are robbed of electrolyte minerals, the pH level becomes altered. This creates an imbalance in the bacterial environment, which can leave the bowels and intestines open to pathogens (including candida and parasites), irritations and disturbances. Have you ever heard of irritable bowel syndrome or leaky gut syndrome?
Also, when the body becomes depleted of organic sodium (an essential electrolyte mineral, not table salt), the body may not be able to manufacture enough hydrochloric acid in the stomach. This can create an imbalance in the digestive system, where foods are not being digested properly.
These imbalances can be aggravated further because our body systems will generally deplete electrolytes from the weakest areas first. So if someone already has a weakened body system, the further depletion of electrolyte minerals will cause a greater imbalance and more dysfunction. When our bodies become too depleted, overall functioning becomes weakened, affecting the immune system and the body’s ability to fight off bacterial and viral infections.
Good Health Begins with Good Digestion. Intact Digest™ with Nutri-Mastic™ The more active you are, the more vital it is to restore your’ body’s supply of minerals. Exercise and stress can drain the body of electrolytes and trace minerals, elements needed to maintain proper fluid balance and recharge energy levels. In addition, energy is passed through the body via electrical charges that require properly functioning electrical cellular communication. Intact Digest™ with Nutri-Mastic™ also converts ammonia in the digestive system to reduce the PH in your system
Intact Digest™ with Nutri-Mastic™ is a propriety blend of Mastic Gum and a liquid trace mineral complex and has a multitude of benefits. Studies also document its anti-oxidant, immune support and anti-inflammatory properties.* Mastic Gum alone will not achieve the same results without the enhanced delivery and absorption ability of Intact Digest™ into the cellular system. The propriety blend of Mastic Gum and a liquid trace mineral complex in Nutri-Mastic™ provides a turbo-charge effect of the Mastic Gum and its other ingredients. >> >> Read more about the History of Mastic
Common causes of toxicity are excessive high fructose consumption, bacteria secreting ammonia in the sinusitis, oral, and digestive system. Ammonia in the blood cellular system that was not converted by the liver into urea which filters the blood can cause heart attacks, stroke, and Alzheimer's.
While you're polishing off your latest meal digestive enzymes, are pouring into your small intestine (from your liver, pancreas, and gall bladder) to break down the large macromolecules into easily absorbable smaller pieces. To process food as it passes through your intestines.* to absorb nutrients into your bloodstream, you've got to break these large molecules down into smaller bits. Minerals that are absorbed in their ionic form are and have either positive or negative charges. They also have unique properties that distinguish them from each other and allow them to freely take part in biochemical communication throughout the body. These communications help nutrients move to specific areas of the body.
