Drinking Milk Helps Manage pH Health

(Newswire.net — May 21, 2018) Cheyenne, Wyoming — The now retired “got milk?” campaign was iconic, still is many would argue, with almost every celebrity who’s worth mentioning has pretty much had that milk mustache slapped across their lips for a personalized commercial. Promoting milk consumption may seem like not such a big deal but the rich calcium benefits from milk and the deep rooted connection it has to the development of a society has placed it in a special pop cultural category all off on its own.

“Not only is it important in bone strength, but it plays an important role in blood pressure control, nerve function, and blood clotting,” explains Aqua Health. “When the blood starts to become too acidic and the supply of alkaline buffers in the blood is insufficient to neutralize this acidity, however, the blood automatically seeks out other ways to reach pH balance. Since calcium is a very alkalizing mineral, the body will start drawing calcium from the bones and teeth in an effort to balance the blood’s pH levels.” 

No matter how much calcium is consumed if the overall pH of one’s body is off balanced then an issue is bound to come up. A slightly alkaline state is best for humans so if left in a prolonged acidic state, the bones are among the first things to be leached for minerals in hopes of restoring pH balance. Adopting healthier eating habits is the quickest and easiest way of remedying internal pH issues. 

“Milk, yogurt, and cheese are rich natural sources of calcium and are the major food contributors of this nutrient to people in the United States,” says National Institutes of Health. “Nondairy sources include vegetables, such as Chinese cabbage, kale, and broccoli. Most grains do not have high amounts of calcium unless they are fortified; however, they contribute calcium to the diet because they contain small amounts of calcium and people consume them frequently.” 

Constantly replenishing one’s calcium intake builds bone density and minimizes the likelihood of developing osteoporosis as a person ages. With the availability of calcium fortified fruit juice, tofu and cereals ready accessible on the market, maintaining a steady intake of this bone healthy mineral should be a breeze.  

“As the most abundant mineral in your body, calcium is essential for your body’s overall nutrition and health,” states The San Francisco Gate. “Calcium makes up approximately 2 percent of your total body weight and contributes to many basic body functions, including disease prevention and absorption of other nutrients. Consuming enough calcium — between 1,000 and 1,200 milligrams per day for healthy men and women — is a must for optimal nutrition and health.” 

Moreover, testing one’s internal pH balance on a regular basis will help determine if the body is too acidic or alkaline on average and consequently inform of the type of dietary changes that are needed.
