Hyperacidity | How to prevent over-acidification of the body?

Today’s way of life and nutrition can easily affect our organism in the form of hyperacidity. There are many people who suffer from an unbalanced acid-base balance (over-acidification of the body); which is also responsible for various health problems.

What does hyperacidity mean?

The word itself says it all: there are too many acids in the body or too few bases. The correct ratio of these two components is decisive and is determined based on the pH value.

  1. The neutral pH is 7
  2. An acidic pH value is below 7 (0-7)
  3. A basic pH value is above 7 (7-14)

How do I know if I have Hyperacidity?

Preferably with pH test strips. These are available in all drugstores and pharmacies, including a pH value table. You just have to urinate on the strips and wait 1-2 minutes.

With a balanced acid-base balance; the pH values ​​are 6.5-6.8 in the morning (slightly acidic); around seven at noon (neutral); and above 7 in the evening (somewhat necessary).

What are the consequences?

As with most diseases and ailments, these do not occur immediately; but rather develop slowly. Older people, in particular, are affected by the consequences, as; for example, kidney function declines, and toxins and acids can no longer be excreted.

The acid or slag collects in the connective tissue, joints, and blood vessels. The following symptoms, among others, can arise from this creeping process that lasts for years:

  1. Fatigue
  2. Exhaustion
  3. Lack of drive
  4. Difficulty concentrating
  5. Nevosity
  6. Mood swings
  7. Sleep disorders
  8. A headache
  9. Nerve pain
  10. Muscle aches
  11. Joint pain
  12. Different forms of rheumatism
  13. Different forms of allergy
  14. Non-specific inflammation
  15. Frequent colds
  16. Conjunctivitis
  17. Tumors

And many others, of course, one cannot say that these are only consequences of hyperacidity; but they positively contribute to it.

What are the Causes of Hyperacidity?

As with a motorway, our body can only process or excrete a certain amount of acid. If too much comes at once, there is a jam. The connective tissue plays a crucial role here because its molecules act as acid stores.

The acid is stored there until the blood or the excretory organs have free capacity again. If more acid is added to our body; than it can excrete, the connective tissue is over-acidified. So more and more garbage accumulates than can be disposed of. This is also commonly known as slag.

But where does this garbage come from?

Through too-little/too-much sport, negative stress, and an acid-forming diet.

Too little sport leads to a lack of blood flow and oxygen supply in the tissue. Too much sport leads to local acidification through lactate (lactic acid). Negative stress affects the hormonal balance and causes an increased release of cortisol.

Acid-forming foods include meat, eggs, grain, and dairy products, coffee, and alcohol.
This is why fitness fanatics (including myself) are at risk of over-acidification with increased protein consumption.

Acidic foods:

  1. Meat, meat broth, sausage products, ham
  2. Fish and shellfish
  3. Milk and milk products (including low-fat) such as quark, yogurt, kefir and all types of cheese, including from sheep and goat
  4. Mustard, vinegar, ketchup, pickles
  5. Legumes (peas, beans, lentils)
  6. Asparagus, Brussels sprouts, artichokes
  7. All nuts except almonds
  8. All types of grain and grain products such as pizza, pasta, rice, rolls, bread, and other pastries as well as whole grain products, spelled, soy, amaranth, and quinoa
  9. Sugar, sweets, ice, including frozen water, soy, and yogurt, honey
  10. Hydrogenated, refined fats and oils, including margarine, cheap salad oils
  11. Carbonated beverages like mineral water, lemonade, cola
  12. Coffee, grain, instant, decaf coffee
  13. Black tea
  14. Fruit tea
  15. Ice tea
  16. Alcohol
  17. Tofu

How Can You Prevent Hyperacidity?

  1. Consume less acidic foods
  2. Eat more alkaline foods
  3. Balanced and regular exercise (sport)
  4. Consume basic foods at every meal (vegetables and fruits)
  5. Basic foods include:

Yes, you read that right, Lemons. They are acidic but have a basic effect on our bodies. Of course, that’s not all food, but I think you understand what it’s about.

How Much Salt You Should Consume Daily?

There is also various detox(detox is the process of removing toxic substances from the body) cures with which you can cleanse the body relatively quickly. Still, these are only temporary solutions and are of little use if you then fall back into your old nutritional patterns.

Precautions to Combat an Acidic Body or Hyperacidity

Of course, you can take various precautions to combat an acidic body with your diet. It would be best to eat lots of vegetables and salad with every meal, but this can also have disadvantages, especially if you are trying to gain muscle mass.

Not because the vegetables are counterproductive, but because they fill the stomach, and then you have to struggle to cram the required calories into yourself. That’s why I take green powder two times a day.

What’s Green powders?

Green powder is a mixture of several vegetables and salads. To not suffer from a lack of nutrients (and to counteract acidification), I also supplement with it, which, of course, should not be a substitute for a healthy and balanced diet. But I have to warn you because it just tastes awful. It is best to mix with plenty of fruit juice and not, as I did initially, with water.

The easiest solution to get as many vegetables and fruit as possible would, of course, be a juicer, but that’s always a question of cost.

So that’s it about Over acidification of the body or Hyperacidity. I hope you like it.

Green greetings
