Many people think that the mineral calcium is only used by the body to build bones. Yes, calcium is part of your bone structure, but it has hundreds of other chemical reactions in your body. It is one of most active mineral in your body. There is one activity that it performs that prevents you from having devastating diseases.
Calcium is an acid hunter. It readily combines with body acids to eliminate them through your four channels of elimination. When it does this, it is trying to maintain a balance between your acid in your body and the alkaline molecules.
You body is constantly creating acid and alkaline conditions in your body. Most people create more acid in their body and have little alkaline stores to satisfactorily neutralize this acid. So why is this? This occurs because of the modern lifestyle most people live. First their diet is lacking in alkaline minerals and they eat more food that leaves an acid residue throughout their body. The alkaline minerals they have are not enough to neutralize the acids created by their acid food eating. Second, their emotional states are such that they frequently get angry, upset, become jealousy, and are unhappy. These emotions create acids in the body that needs to be neutralized.
Having an excess of body acids in your body creates illness by degrading tissue. These acids attract pathogens that like an acid environment. It is acid that creates inflammation and depending on where these acids accumulate, you end up with illnesses or diseases that end in “itis.”
Acids are also created in the stomach, when you have an upset stomach, heartburn, or bloating. When you eat a big meal that takes longer than normal to digest, your stomach creates acid wastes that your body needs to get rid of. Sometime the stomach will trigger acid reflux to expel these acids through vomit. Other times these acids will go into the colon and eventually get into your blood as acid.
It is now up to you body to get rid of these stomach acid wastes and one of the means it has is through alkaline minerals. If you eat a lot of raw fruits and vegetables, you will have plenty alkaline minerals to neutralize acid. Eating calcium foods and taking calcium supplements is one way to get your acids neutralized.
Now you can see if that you want to have better health, you want to reduce the amount of acids that you create in your body. You can do this by eating less acid food like meat, milk, bread, junk food, sodas, carbohydrates, and various deserts. Then you can eat more fruits and vegetables. Finally you can take a calcium, magnesium, vitamin D3 supplement. Now you have a formula to stop serious illness.
