To answer this question, it is important to remember that it is not the pH reading of a food or drink that reflects whether it is alkalizing or acid-forming in your body. For example, highly acidic lemon juice (with a pH of 2) is actually alkaline-forming in your body.
What determines whether a food or drink is alkalizing or acid-forming in your body is the cumulative effects of your body metabolizing it. Thus, although Oxylent’s pH is mildly acidic at 4-5, it is not acid-forming but instead (by providing essential nutrients such as the alkaline minerals potassium, calcium, and magnesium) Oxylent helps support a healthy acid-alkaline balance in your body.
The reason that many people are concerned with whether foods or drinks are alkalizing or acid-forming is because many doctors and experts believe that the modern diet slowly shifts the body’s overall pH toward the acidic range, which has negative health consequences.
Doctors argue that years of eating a diet composed mainly of refined carbohydrates, meat, and dairy has an acid-forming effect on your overall system, which, over time, overwhelms your body’s buffering systems to a point where your body is forced to break down muscle and take minerals from bone and tissue in order to try and bring the body’s overall pH back into balance—causing serious damage to bodily systems.
Generally speaking, most vegetables and fruits have an overall alkalizing effect on your body. Most animal-based foods, most grains and beans, and refined/processed foods generally have an acid-forming effect on your body’s overall system.
Along with a healthy diet full of alkaline-forming fruits and vegetables, Oxylent helps support a healthy overall body pH.
