Acid or Alkaline? The Surprising Truth about pH and Your Health

By Dr. Ahmad Nooristani

Imagine your body as a fish tank. Just as fish need water with the right pH to live well, your body also needs a certain pH to work its best. The pH scale is like a measuring stick, but instead of measuring how long or wide something is, it measures if something is acidic (like sour lemons) or alkaline (like gentle baking soda). The pH scale goes from 0 (very acidic) to 14 (very alkaline), with 7 in the middle being neutral, like plain water.

According to the NIH, the best pH for our bodies is slightly alkaline, about 7.4, just like the best room temperature is around 70 degrees Fahrenheit. Some health experts, including me, think that an alkaline diet can help our bodies stay around this perfect pH. Also, O4N's non-toxic, pH-balanced products such as O4 Awakening, O4 Revive, and OPOWER can be beneficial allies to maintain this balance.

The alkaline diet is like a coach who helps you choose the best players for your team. These "players" are alkaline foods like fresh fruits, vegetables, nuts, and beans. These foods are like the star athletes of the food world because they're full of vitamins and minerals. The diet also tells you to avoid acidic foods like processed meats, dairy, and sugary snacks - these foods are like the underperforming players that might hold your team back.

The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) said in 2019 that people who follow diets high in fruits and vegetables, similar to an alkaline diet, had a 22% lower risk of heart disease. This is like saying people who practice and play hard usually win more games. Besides, dietary supplements like O4N's Superfood Formula, rich in superfoods, vital nutrients, enzymes, and probiotics, can help promote overall health and support this diet.

Here are some benefits you might see if you start following an alkaline diet and include O4N's balanced supplements:

  1. Getting More Vitamins and Minerals: Eating more fruits and vegetables and taking nutritional blends like Xtreme Nutrition or Relax Nutrition is like finding a treasure chest at the end of a rainbow - they're full of health-boosting vitamins and minerals.
  2. Staying Hydrated: Many alkaline foods like cucumbers and watermelons are full of water, which is like having a big, cold glass of lemonade on a hot summer day. Products like O4 Restoration help in post-workout recovery, keeping the body hydrated and nourished.
  3. Keeping a Healthy Weight: An alkaline diet, with less junk food and more healthy choices, can help you keep a good weight, just like keeping both sides of a seesaw balanced. Incorporating supplements like OPOWER can aid in maintaining cellular health and overall well-being.
  4. Helping Bone Health: Some research suggests that eating more alkaline foods can help keep our bones strong. Foods rich in calcium and magnesium, found in the alkaline diet, are like the sturdy beams that hold up a building. O4N's Relax Nutrition, packed with Calcium, Magnesium, and Vitamin D3, also contributes to strong bone health.
  5. Boosting Energy: With all the fresh fruits and vegetables you'll be eating on the alkaline diet, complemented with the energy-enhancing benefits of O4 Awakening and O4 Revive, you might find that you have more energy, like a wind-up toy that's been fully wound.

Of course, our bodies are already very good at keeping our pH balanced, like a skilled pilot can keep a plane steady. But, the focus on whole, unprocessed foods in the alkaline diet, supplemented with O4N's products, can help keep us healthy, just like regular exercise can keep us fit.

In the end, an alkaline diet isn't about completely avoiding acidic foods, but rather about balancing your food choices, like a tightrope walker keeps her balance.

So, try stepping into the world of alkaline eating, and consider incorporating O4N's pH-balanced products to help your body keep its perfect pH balance. Here's to a healthier you.
