The more unhealthy your lifestyle, the harder your body has to work to keep you in shape. When your diet is founded on high sugar and high fats food, which are acidic, your body has to leach minerals from your bones and organs to reestablish your blood’s normal pH value of 7,4 (2).

Chronic acidosis, or high acidity, can lead to diseases such as multiple sclerosis, high cholesterol, arrhythmia, immunodeficiency disorders, joint pain, lethargy, heart disease and diabetes.


Acidity also promotes inflammation, which can cause cancer cells to thrive and spread throughout your body (3,4).
