Have you ever wondered how to maintain optimal health for your beloved pet?
Understanding the importance of pH balance in their bodies can help you make informed decisions about their nutrition. In this article, we delve into the significance of alkaline and acidic foods in maintaining a healthy pH balance for pets, highlighting the crucial role that diet plays in promoting their overall well-being.
The pH Balance and Pet Health:
Did you know that your pet's body is filled with various fluids, both inside and outside their cells, that play vital roles in their overall health?
These fluids, found in muscles, bones, the bloodstream, saliva, and urine, among other areas, possess a specific level of acidity or alkalinity, measured on a pH scale that ranges from zero to 14. A pH value of 7 is considered neutral, while values above 7 are alkaline, and those below 7 are acidic.
When a pet's health is compromised, their bodily fluids tend to become more acidic. To help your pet regain and maintain good health, it is essential to reduce the acidity in their body fluids.
The Role of Diet in pH Balance:
Did you know that the primary factor influencing the pH balance in your pet's body is the food they consume?
Foods can be categorized as either acid or alkaline, based on the ash value or residue that remains after digestion and processing. If a food leaves an acid residue, the body must neutralize it to prevent the blood from becoming acidic. This neutralization process relies on alkalinity, which is provided by minerals. Ideally, a pet's diet should contain adequate alkalinity (minerals) to neutralize any acid residue. However, if their diet lacks these minerals, their body will extract them from its own cells, leading to cellular acidity and, eventually, disease over time.
It's worth noting that most modern pet foods, both canned and dried, are generally highly acidic and lack the alkaline minerals found in fresh and natural foods. As a result, pets with compromised liver and kidneys often require a diet rich in fresh fruits and vegetables. Fruits and vegetables are metabolized to produce ash residues that have alkaline properties in the body's fluids. Furthermore, these natural foods contain an array of alkaline mineral elements, including potassium, calcium, sodium, and magnesium.
Utilizing Wild-Crafted Micro Algae as a Supplement:
Have you ever heard of wild-crafted micro algae as a supplement to restore alkalinity in a pet's body?
This remarkable algae boasts a natural mineral complex of approximately 23%. This percentage represents the overall mineral content present in this unique algae. Extensive research has identified over 40 macro and micro minerals in wild-crafted micro algae, and the assimilation rate of these minerals into a pet's body can be close to 100%. Renowned chemist Karl Abrams, a professor at Saddleback College in Orange County, California, describes the abundance of minerals in wild-crafted micro algae as "A Treasure Trove." In conclusion, maintaining the pH balance in your pet's body is crucial for their overall health and well-being. By understanding the acid-alkaline nature of foods and their impact on bodily fluids, you can make informed choices to promote optimal health for
