Acidity in the body doesn’t do any good.
WHAT CAUSES THE BODY TO BE ACIDIC
ACIDITY AND TRAINING
Intensive training increases the blood acidity (especially, when the workout is anaerobic – without oxygen). In order to neutralize acid in the blood, it is released into the tissues. This is, when we get muscle sore.
As far as we train, we don’t feel it. But the moment we sit down and do nothing or we take a nap, the muscles get very tight, the blood circulation worsens and acidity increases.
Very important to avoid muscle sore is proper stretching after the workout so that the muscles don’t get super tight.
SYMPTOMS OF INCREASED ACIDITY IN THE BODY
At some point we get used to everyday training and muscle pain is not that extreme. Nevertheless, it is possible that we start to feel more and more tired, exhausted, physically drained, sluggish … and that can be due to increased acidity in the body and lack of essential minerals.
POTASSIUM and MAGNESSIUM are the first minerals, which we should take care of, when we feel that something is not right with us. If they are in deficit, focusing on other substances and supplementing them will not workMM.
This is VERY IMPORTANT INFORMATION for everybody, who train intensively!
Without Magnesium the ATP – ENERGY cannot be bound and used. Even when we train hard there is no way we will improve !!!MM.
BECOME MORE ALKALINE (Basic – pH above 7)
- most importantly eating less food causing acidity,
- and additionally use supplementation such as alkaline powder, magnesium and potassium supplements.
containing calcium and magnesium, in the form of carbonates and alkaline mineral salts
I drank alkaline powder almost everyday morning before Tai Chi class. I like it and it seems to help me stay strong during the day. I also used it, when I felt heartburn (sour taste coming from the stomach) or bloating (heavy belly).
