Whether playing sports or exercising, you are consuming more oxygen and metabolizing energy through muscle work. This process creates free radicals, lactic acid and a mild metabolic acidosis. Have you ever exercised and felt like you were going to puke? Your body goes into a process of trying to detox or rid itself of toxins stored in your body. Acidosis is an increased acidity in the blood and other body tissue. Acidosis is said to occur when arterial pH falls below 7.35. The pH level of our blood affects every cell in our body. Chronic acidosis corrodes body tissue, and if left unchecked, will interrupt all cellular activities and functions. Acidosis is a tendency of the body to be over acid. This occurs when the body loses its alkaline reserve. When acid waste accumulated in the body, our cells are not able to function properly. Persons who have diabetes often suffers from acidosis, and stomach ulcers are associated with this condition as well. During Menopause, women can become extremely acidic. Our bodies use calcium and other minerals to buffer this acidity. That calcium loss can lead to osteoporosis.
The symptoms of acidosis are frequent :
- Water Retention
- Rheumatoid Arthritis
- Migraine Headaches
- Abnormally Low Blood Pressure
- Dry Hard Stools
- Foul Smelling Stools Accompanied By A Burning Sensation In Anus
- Alternating Constipation and Diarrhea
- Difficulty Swallowing
- Burning In The Mouth / Under The Tongue
- Sensitivity Of Teeth To Vinegar And Acid Fruits
- Bumps On The Roof Of The Mouth / Tongue
Having read all the information given above, do you think that balancing of alkalinity is important ? Do you also believe that our bodies run on water but not on juices or soft drinks or beverages etc and that the quality of water matters ?
WHAT CAUSES ACIDOSIS?
HIGH ACID-FORMING FOODS and DIETS all lead to ACIDOSIS. Living a fast-paced daily lifestyle, such as eating on the run and excessive over stimulation, will lead people to face a constant symptoms of indigestion and growing endangerment of over-acidification (Acidosis) of the body cells, which will interrupt cellular activities and functions. It is a major root of sickness and disease.Having our cells constantly exposed to an acidic environment leads to acidosis and then chronic acidosis and finally various forms of disease such as cancer and many more!
Studies have shown that an acidic, anaerobic (which is also the lack of oxygen) bodyenvironment encourages the breeding of fungus, mold, bacteria, and viruses. As a result, our inner biological terrain shifts from a healthy oxygenated, alkaline environment to an unhealthy acidic one (acidic pH scale).
Modern Day Athletes and Acid-Forming Foods
Unfortunately, Modern Day Athletes/Non-Athletes are at the all-time high of those suffering from “chronic acidosis” and, at the very least, “low chronic acidosis”due to eating High Acid-Forming Diets. High Acid-Forming Diets equate to acidifying body tissue on a cellular level. Acidified body tissue is poor, inferior quality body tissue, which will eventually rear its ugly head and deny every athlete the opportunity to attain optimum health and peak athletic power, strength and endurance. Yes, it may even lead to a career-ending injury that could have been prevented. An ounce of Prevention is worth more than a pound of flesh, so the expression goes.
WHAT ARE THE FIRST SIGNS OF ACIDOSIS?
Acidosis Symptoms are the first signs and effects of Acidosis. They are followed by more aggressive acidosis symptoms such as diabetic acidosis and lactic acidosis symptoms which lead to full blown lactic acidosis or renal tubular acidosis.
UNHEALTHY ACIDOSIS SYMPTOMS:
Do you have one or more of the following symptoms?
This self-test can help you get a good idea about how acidic your body is. The more symptoms, the more acidic the body, and the more
urgent it is to start an alkalinizing process

Maintaining proper hydration..
According to Wiki, “Superhydration is a ‘health philosophy’ which is based upon consuming quantity of Electrolyzed-Reduced Water (ERW) (a gallon or more) per day, for the purpose of detoxification, and with the intent to increase metabolism.”
Maintaining proper hydration during exercise, or while working outdoors in hot temperatures, is essential not only for good health, but to prevent heat-related conditions and illnesses. Countless people die each year as a result of “heat stroke,” when the body is unable to cool itself. When people are rushed to Emergency Rooms with heat-related illnesses, you will find that they are given an IV of fluids immediately, in an effort to preclude organ failure.
Athletes have known for many years, the benefits of proper hydration as it relates to performance and endurance. Now, everyone can benefit from the immediate hydrating (and superhydrating) powers of Electrolyzed-Reduced Water (ERW) It is a true game-changer for health, and an overall improved quality of life!
TRAINERS & Athletics LOVE Electrolyzed Reduced Water ( ERW )
Injury prevention and inflammation reduction. Top athletes today suffer regularly from injuries, broken bones, torn muscles and ligaments and even cancer. This can all be due to acidosis in the muscles and tissue. A poor diet and bad drinks (such as sport drinks) that lack anti-oxidants and alkaline minerals cause a weakening of the body. The acidification of the muscles manifests as inflammation, causing joint and muscle pain. After about one week of drinking Electrolyzed reduced water , the inflammations begin to reduce, waste products are reduced and the acidosis in the muscles diminishes.
Hydration and performance with micro-clustering
Each time you fully hydrate, your sport performance improves. During workouts you lose lots of fluids. A fluid loss of at least 2% causes a heavy reduction of muscle power. The problem with regular water is that it cannot replace your fluid loss fast enough. The reason is that the water molecules occur in large clusters that are too big to be rapidly absorbed by the body. Electrolyzed reduced water is ionized water that consists of micro-clusters which can be quickly and effectively absorbed by the cells, leading to a deep hydration during your workout. Through the micro-clusters, nutrients and supplements can be more completely transported to and taken in by the cells and the water can more effectively cleanse the cells of acidic waste products.
Your fitness level can be measured by the quantity of oxygen that you can use while training at maximum capacity. VO2 Max is the maximum level of oxygen expressed in milliliters. Physically fit people have a higher VO2 Max value and can endure higher intensity levels in sports than less fit people. It is long known that through high intensity training, the VO2 Max value can be raised. Studies have now shown that by drinking Electrolyzed reduced water, the VO2 Max can also be raised and thus endurance increased. Electrolyzed reduced water is loaded with enormous amounts of oxygen and thus perfectly gives your muscles what they need to have better performance.
Electrolyzed reduced water is oxygen-rich, ionized, anti-oxidizing, highly absorbable and alkaline water that has enormous benefits for the athletic body. Because of these properties,Electrolyzed reduced water works against acidosis of the muscles so that they become alkaline; it provides great amounts of oxygen so that recovery periods are shorter – completely naturally! Through this you can train harder more often and achieve stronger results. Anti-oxidants in the water slow down the oxidation process, and through the micro-clustering of the water molecules, Electrolyzed reduced Water gets absorbed super-fast by the cells. In this way your endurance and fitness will strengthen drastically!
Most important athletic benefits of Electrolyzed reduced water
- Raises the pH balance
- Retards the aging and oxidation process
- Improves transport of nutrients to the cells
- Increases the effects of supplements
- Faster and deeper cell hydration
- Improves power and endurance
- Quicker recovery of the body.
