Acid/Alkaline and Your Body's pH
When your body becomes too acidic, it will attempt to compensate by retaining alkaline salts in the bloodstream to offset the increase of tissue acidity. Since your body can only tolerate a small imbalance in blood pH, it will rob alkaline components from other places including your bodys precious alkaline reserves in an effort to restore a proper pH balance. This can result in heartburn, digestive distress, stomach upset, fatigue, and a multitude of varying symptoms.
Commercial antacid products only alleviate the symptoms by blocking the production of acid and can often produce unwanted side effects. They alter your body's ability to absorb protein and calcium which
can then create the need for a calcium supplement to compensate.
The ingredients in Acid Defense however,
contain naturally occurring alkalinizing components such as calcium and magnesium that reestablish a balanced, healthy, system-wide pH. It is safe for daily usage with no known side effects.
The Important Role of Sodium & Potassium
If it were not for the presence of sodium making the tissue in the stomach highly alkaline, the lining would be destroyed by the hydrochloric acid normally produced in the stomach. The stomach, intestines, joints, and ligaments are in constant need of natural food-source sodium such as that present in the goat mineral matrix in Acid Defense. Naturally occurring sodium is not to be confused with the sodium from common table salt which is processed with extreme heat using many chemical and bleaching agents.
A Necessary and Beneficial Combination:
Potassium neutralizes acid wastes, and in combination with sodium, maintains a healthy acid/alkaline balance. Potassium and sodium are nearly always found together in the body and perform many of the same functions. Second only to breathing and maintaining a heartbeat the most important metabolic function our body performs is to maintain a balanced pH.
The Foundation of Health
We believe that the very foundation of health begins with the proliferation of beneficial flora in the gut. The probiotics, live enzymes, and alkalizing minerals naturally occurring in goat's milk whey, along with organic vegetable juice concentrates and our powerful Stomach Soothe enzymes Blend Together in Acid Defense produce a soothing effect, maintain a balanced pH, and promote the growth of healthy flora throughout the intestines.
Ancient Wisdom Fermentation
The ancient Greeks understood that important chemical changes took place during fermentation. Their name for this change was alchemy.
The whole food ingredients in Acid Defense, are lacto-fermented and enzymatically pre-digested,utilizing a proprietary natural process called Poten-Zyme (Potentiation by Enzymatic activation). This ancient method of bio-fermentation incorporates 14 strains of beneficial microorganisms and their enzymes into the foods, gently breaking them down into their most basic elements.
Fermentation creates and liberates valuable medicinal compounds within
the foods including enzymes, antioxidants, beta glucans, phytosterols,
and other phytonutrients greatly enhancing the nutritional value
while making it easier to digest. This assures more complete absorption
and delivery of nutrients at the cellular level.
