What is pH?

pH is on hydrogen and ion-based particle scaled on 7.4 ± 0.04. Its job is to stabilize Homeostasis from being acidic and alkaline. PH is defined as Potential Hydrogen or Power of Hydrogen, measurement of hydrogen density. Water H2O structure is H+ + OH-. If H+ Hydrogen ions increase, the water becomes acidic and if OH- hydroxide ions increase, the water becomes too alkaline. Hydro means water in Greek and most particles of the sun are hydrogens. Other particles such as He, O and C are created from the reaction of hydrogen’s nuclear blast. Everything began from the creation of hydrogen.  Pure neutral water has pH scale of 7.0. However, the human body has to maintain pH 7.4, weak alkaline to produce energy to breathe and live. Normally our body stays on pH 7.4 ± 0.04 by hydrogen, parallel to Homeostasis so we do not have to worry about eating acidic and alkaline foods. 

Our blood has homeostatic and tries to stabilize the pH balance in our body too weakly alkaline pH 7.4 ± 0.05. So even, we drink strong hydrochloric acidic drink such as coke or alkaline substance like baking soda, our blood returns to an original state. Our neutral body state has a pH balance of 7.4. If the pH scale shows below 7.4 then it means acidic state and if it shows over 7.4, then it will be alkaline. But our body takes it seriously because if the body’s pH drops below 7.4 then our body will suffer cardiac shock which is called acidosis, a very dangerous state. Our body goes into an acidic state if our pH drops below 7.4 such as 7.1 7.2 and 7.3. So it tells us how important to maintain a pH of 7.4 alkaline homeostatic. The secret of maintaining homeostatic is we need bicarbonate HCO3-, a buffer to reduce acidic levels that comes from Na, Ca and Mg, alkaline minerals such as salt. In order to digest the foods, our stomach needs salt an alkaline mineral to produce acid HCL.

Our stomach can hold hydrochloric acid while digesting the food into small pieces because our stomach produces strong acid and Na+HCO3- to immanence the gastric cells. We will suffer from indigestion, gastric ulcer, gastritis and gastric cancer from either lack of bicarbonate alkaline minerals like salt or lack of producing hydrochloric acid. However, we need to take a bit of salt and drink Antioxidant Hydrogen Alkaline water. However, it is not enough even telling the importance of Antioxidant Hydrogen Alkaline mineral water to the people.
