Our acidic nation.
As a nation, we live an extremely acidic life. The foods we eat are acid-forming: meat and poultry, pasteurized dairy products, baked goods, trans fats and cooked oils, and refined sugars. Even most of the beverages we drink are acid-forming: coffee, tea, pasteurized juices and milk, and carbonated drinks. The lifestyle habits we have are acid-forming: drugs (both pharmaceutical and “recreational”), alcohol, and stimulants. The emotional states we gravitate toward are acid-forming: stress, anxiety, and fear. And certain external factors that we have little control over are acid-forming, like pollution and aging. (Many studies have shown that acidification increases with age.)
Not surprisingly, the vast majority of Americans are likely suffering from chronic, latent acidosis — and paying the consequences, with low energy, fatigue, excess weight, poor digestion, aches and pains, and even more serious disorders.
In fact, since acid is naturally corrosive and inflammatory, too much of it can have a negative impact on our bones, our joints, and our gastro-intestinal tracts.
“But aren’t our bodies naturally equipped with the ability to neutralize these acids?”, you may be thinking. The short answer is yes. The human body removes weak acids (like citric acid in lemons or acetic acid in apple cider vinegar) from the lungs in the form of carbon dioxide. And it removes strong acids from the kidneys through the urine, and from the skin through the sweat. However, our bodies can only process so much acid – especially strong acid. And when we get overwhelmed by the sheer quantity of it produced by our modern lifestyle, we simply can’t eliminate it all. That’s when problems develop.
Where do the acids go?
What happens when our production of acids exceeds our intake of alkaline mineral buffers? Before we answer that question, let’s take a deeper look at how pH works.
Most parts of the body have a pH range they can tolerate. The skin can vary from 4.5 to 7.0, for example. Stomach acid ranges from 1.0 to 3.0. And pancreatic secretions go from 8.0 to 8.3. But the blood is not so flexible. It has a very narrow pH range: 7.35 to 7.45. If the pH of your blood goes outside that range even just a little… wham; the functioning of your organs is compromised. If the pH of your blood strays too far from that acceptable range for too long, your body will go into shock…then coma…then death. No joke. As you can imagine, the body will do just about anything to keep that from happening. So when your blood starts becoming even a tiny bit acidic, it has to do something with the excess acids. The option of choice is to send the acids to the kidneys for elimination.
But what happens when the kidneys are at full capacity — when they simply can’t accept all the acids being produced by the body? Then where do they go?
If you have enough alkaline buffers in your system, they mix with the acids and become neutral salts. (In other words, the acids and the alkaline minerals cancel each other out.) But if you don’t — like most Americans — the body’s only choice is to force the acids deep into the tissues, which can withstand pH fluctuations better than the blood. There, they cause inflammation and, ultimately, damage.
Acidification = Mineral Deficiency.
The good news (yes, there is good news) is that neutralizing the acids locked within your tissues is remarkably simple: Just load your body with alkaline mineral buffers.
You see, acidification is primarily a synonym for mineral deficiency. That’s because alkaline mineral buffers — such as calcium, magnesium, potassium, manganese, and iron — combine with acids to create neutral salts. The neutral salt that’s created can then enter the bloodstream for elimination, without affecting the pH of the blood. And voila, pH balance is restored.
Of course, most of us aren’t taking in nearly the amount of minerals that we need to be. And the minerals that we do get are being immediately seized by the body to neutralize the excess acids in our systems. That may be why so many Americans are deficient in key minerals like potassium, calcium, magnesium, and iron. The body is using them up as fast as possible to neutralize all those acids in the blood!
The quick and effective way to neutralize acids.
The best way to neutralize excess acid is to cancel it out with alkaline mineral buffers.pHion Alkaline Minerals contains all five primary alkaline minerals — calcium, magnesium, potassium, manganese, and iron — so it quickly goes to work to neutralize damaging acids deep within your tissues. We’ve selected only the highest quality mineral forms to include in pHion Alkaline Minerals, including calcium derived from organic whey powder, which makes it perhaps the only organic-source calcium on the market. And since calcium requires phosphorous for proper absorption, the pHion Alkaline Minerals formula also includes phosphorous.
An added bonus.
Not only will pHion Alkaline Minerals neutralize the acids in your system, when taken on a daily basis, it will also help you build up your mineral reserves. That means you’ll have a ready supply of minerals on-hand when needed. And since minerals are required for, oh, over 300 reactions in the body, that’s a good thing.
Packed with all five primary alkaline minerals, pHion Alkaline Minerals may be the quickest way on earth to transform a stagnant, acidic system into a vibrant, pH-neutral one.
The five alkaline mineral buffers in pHion Alkaline Minerals include:
Calcium is the most abundant mineral in the body and is also one of the most alkalizing. Calcium deficiency may ultimately lead to acidification and negatively affect the bones, where 99 percent of calcium is found. Research has shown that our unique form of whey calcium is more bioavailable — i.e. better absorbed and utilized — than other calcium ingredients, making it a superior calcium choice.
Magnesium is another crucial mineral that helps restore proper pH Balance. In addition to its alkalizing effect, magnesium is vital in assisting calcium and potassium uptake.Unfortunately, most Americans don’t get enough magnesium through the diet. In fact, a recent study found that a full 68 percent of Americans consume less than the RDA of magnesium — and 19 percent consume less than 50 percent!
Potassium is an electrolyte critical in maintaining proper acid-alkaline balance. Potassium is highly concentrated inside the cells, while its partner, sodium, is highly concentrated outside the cells. It is their perfect ratio that maintains fluid and electrolyte balance. In caveman days, our potassium intake was seven times higher than our salt intake. These days, we’ve gone completely out of balance, with sodium intake tripling that of potassium.
Manganese is one of the unsung minerals. But just because it doesn’t get as much press as calcium, magnesium, and potassium doesn’t mean it’s not important. Like “the big three,” manganese supplies alkaline buffers that neutralize acids in the system. Amazingly, manganese is needed for numerous enzymes, so it is a required trace mineral for all living things!
Iron, as you probably know, is necessary to carry oxygen in the blood. This is of crucial importance for people who have trouble metabolizing acids, since they cannot oxidize volatile acids properly.
Vitamin D3 is produced in skin exposed to sunlight, specifically ultraviolet, B radiation. We have included Vitamin D3 for its’ ability to increases the flow of calcium into the bloodstream by: (1) stimulating osteoclastic resorption of calcium from bone, (2) facilitating the effect that parathyroid hormone has on calcium resorption from bone, (3) increasing kidney tubular absorption of calcium, and (4) increasing calcium absorption from the gastrointestinal tract.
pHion Alkaline Minerals also features Phosphorous, which is necessary for calcium uptake. Its inclusion helps ensure that your body actually absorbs the calcium in this formula! It also serves another role: Phosphorous binds to acids in the kidneys creating a substance called phosphoric acid. This acid is then excreted via the urine. Through this buffering method, the kidneys reduce the degree of acidity in the bodily fluids.
pHion Alkaline Minerals is a mineral rich supplement designed to accelerate the elimination and neutralization of acids that are often deeply embedded in the tissues of the body.
