First off, we're not looking specifically at blood pH rather cellular pH. I was confused at first too. The human body is a miraculous thing of balance and will use all it's interconnected resources to find it's equilibrium or balance when it is constantly assaulted with diet and environmental toxins. When the body is overly acidic (cellular level) it calls calcium, magnesium and phosphorous from the tissues and bones in an attempt to neutral or balance this acidity. Therefore a strong acid acidic diet of food and drink robs our bodies of these precious minerals necessary for so many of the chemical functions of everyday metabolism. We literally pee these minerals away. An alkaline diet along with about a gallon a day of alkaline drinking water allows the body to bring itself into balance and keep it's valuable minerals. In fact, the process of electrolyzing water only takes place in the presence of calcium, magnesium and sodium, so good ionized water is actually full of these mineral ions - ready to assist the body in all of its chemical processes. Don't even get me started on the state of chronic dehydration that is responsible for many of our illness and aches and pains of today. People need the correct information to do the correct thing.
