A latent hyperacidity of the body, which develops slowly and adversely affects your physical and mental performance, your general well-being and your health, is much more widespread in our society than most will think. The main reason for this is our unhealthy diet, which is often rich in animal protein and cereal products that raise the acid Levels in your body. At the same time we often do not eat enough foods like fresh fruits and vegetables that act alkaline in our body. At this point, we should talk about a widespread misunderstanding of acid-base balance. An over-acidification of the body has nothing to do with the consumption of acidic and basic foods per se. Even though most fruits contain acids, they will have an alkaline effect when they are metabolized in the body, because they contain minerals with alkaline properties. In addition to an unhealthy diet, also fasting or fat digestion can shift the acid-base balance in the body into the acidic range, since keto acids are formed during the fat metabolism, which can lead to an over-acidification and impair your metabolism.
The nasty thing about a long-term hyperacidity of the body is that it does not show any clear symptoms and develops slowly. Although the symptoms are quite nonspecific, they can have a significant negative impact on your health, well-being and performance. The negative effects of hyperacidity on your overall well-being and your physical and mental performance range from exhaustion, fatigue, impaired concentration, reduced physical performance, to nervousness, and a greatly reduced stress tolerance. Hyperacidity can also affect your health by reducing the resistance of your body to diseases of all kinds and it may even cause severe muscular and joint discomfort. Two factors are responsible for the latter. On the one hand, hyperacidity can reduce the stability of your bones in the longer term. When the acid buffer systems of your body reach their limits, your body will rely on minerals stored in the bones as additional acid buffers. On the other hand, hyperacidity can affect the elasticity of your tendons, ligaments and muscles since your body begins to absorb acids into the connective tissue and this reduces the ability of your connective tissue to absorb water.
Base Powder contains a comprehensive range of synergistic ingredients that are essential for the regulation of the acid-base balance of your body and for preventing or reducing hyperacidity. Base Powder is free from "classic" but useless bicarbonates such as sodium bicarbonate alias soda. Although these bicarbonates have a strong alkaline effect, they are already neutralized in the stomach by the stomach acid and therefore can not really contribute to deacidification of your body. In addition to this, soda can even be harmful in the long term because it increases your sodium intake, which can promote high blood pressure, and may stimulate a higher gastric acid production in the long term, which can lead to heartburn, stomach discomfort and an impaired intestinal function.
The minerals contained in Base Powder are provided in form of citrates. In the body, the citrates are liberated from the minerals and can act as acid buffers by binding H + ions, which are responsible for an acid environment. The resulting citric acid is metabolized to carbon dioxide as part of the citrus cycle.
Acids stored in body cells can only be removed from the corresponding body tissues by means of an exchange system that transports potassium into the cells and acids out of the cells. If there is not enough potassium available in the body, acids can not be removed from the body cells to a sufficient extent, which will adversely affect the cell metabolism.
Calcium is also involved in buffer systems that prevent hyperacidity in the human body. A sufficient calcium supply can ensure that the body does not have to resort to calcium deposited in the bone in order to keep these buffer systems running. In addition to this, further calcium may be needed to reverse a possible destabilization of the bones after a prolonged chronic hyperacidity.
Magnesium is part of several acid buffer systems of the body. Therefore a chronic hyperacidity can lead to a magnesium deficiency, which can impair the function of muscles and nervous system and promote a demineralization of the bones.
Zinc is the cofactor of the enzyme named carbonic anhydrase, which is responsible for the formation of alkaline bicarbonates in the body. Bicarbonates formed in the body - not to be confused with orally taken sodium bicarbonate (soda), which is ineffective as acid buffer in the body - serve as a natural acid buffer, which counteracts a hyperacidity of the blood.
Vitamin D acts synergistically with calcium and is essential for maintenance and reconstruction of a durable bone structure.
