An Alkalized Body Better Manages Damaging Free Radicals

A properly alkalized body will be able to manage free radicals, and be able to optimize the antioxidants you take in, in various ways. "The countless names of illnesses do not really matter. What does matter is that they all come from the same root cause…Too much tissue acid waste in the body"

pH and alkalinity are closely related to the free radical process that are both essential to life and harmful. The body produces oxygen free radicals as a natural part of making energy in most cells. Because making energy and thus free radicals cannot be avoided, the body has evolved a variety of defenses against free radicals known as antioxidants. These quench or neutralize the free radicals after they are produced, allowing cells to make energy without building up toxic levels of free radicals. Tissue acid waste that is associated with every ill known to man, is directly connected to free radicals. Tissue acid waste, free radicals, oxidants are basically one in the same.

The problem with free radicals arises when the body comes under assault above and beyond the normal metabolic process. Since the air, water, and food all contain significant sources of free radicals, the body now has to quench these or face cellular damage and disease. Additionally, chronic inflammation causes a great increase in free radicals because immune cells use free radicals to try to control the inflammation. White blood cells are very active; requiring and producing a lot of energy and free radicals. Fortunately fruits and vegetables - especially green grasses - contain numerous types of antioxidants that can bolster the body's defenses against free radicals.

When your body is properly alkalized, you will have the foundation in which to deal with the damaging, aging effects of free radicals.
