Hyperventilation can lead to reduced oxygen transport to cells. As a result, ineffective breathing patterns can cause cell and tissue hypoxia, chronic inflammation, immunosuppression, and many other negative effects caused by low body-oxygen levels and hypocapnia (reduced CO2 levels).
Hypoxia has been found to be a driving force in several health ...
Let us start by saying that it is not recommended to use home-made remedies off of some internet website, as the information may be inaccurate and misleading. You should always consult with a healthcare professional in order to avoid adverse outcomes.
The concept of manipulating urine pH in order to accelerate the excretion of certain drugs is well-known. ...
Apart from monks and nuns who showcase impressive abilities Wim Hof is onto something. One anecdote reads as follows:
I’ve also experienced the positive changes myself, […] My cardiovascular and muscular endurance has increased substantially too, with a reduction in my run times, thanks to the over-saturation of oxygen to my cells, activation of my ...
Some vendors publish the pH values for the products they sell (examples in this answer). But that seems to be only the case if their product really stands out to the competition with high pH levels. Simple carbonated water (de-ionised) can have quite a low pH but other factors come into play for the acidity of the finished item.
This brand's website has a ...
Yes, there is evidence that alkaline food affects internal pH, but it is important to note that the regulation of internal pH (acid-base homeostatis) has other contributing factors, which is why the impact of food is subtle.
I'm mainly aware of evidence from studies on sodium bicarbonate, as an example for a simple way to supplement alkaline food.
Not sure if I answered this right:
The system begins in the mouth, where the pH of saliva is 5.7 – 7.0.
In the esophagus the pH is 7.0. The stomach pH is 1.5 – 3.0. In the
Duodenum (upper part of the small intestine) pH is 4.0 – 5.0, and in
the lower part of the small intestine (jejunum and ileum), pH 6.5 –
The reason for it:
This research article is maybe useful:
The pH of beverages available to the American consumer
Perrier is a 5.5 pH, albeit unflavored, and the article points out that anything over a 4.0 isn't bad for teeth. LaCroix didn't exist when it was written, so we dig farther.
This one's also ...
The WHO says between 6.5 and 9.5, but mostly due to the pH's effect on operational water-quality parameters. Between 4 and 10.5, apart from possible irritation the effect on humans may not be severe:
EFFECTS ON HUMANS
Exposure to extreme pH values results in irritation to the eyes, skin, and mucous membranes. Eye irritation and exacerbation of skin ...
