Cheapest Exercise Supplement

Of all the exercise supplements that you can get, the one that gives you the most bang for your buck, without an iota of doubt, is the humble sodium bicarbonate, aka baking soda.

The alkalinity / acidity of our body is measured on a pH scale. On this scale, from 1 to 14, 7 is neutral, below 7 is acidic, and above 7 is alkaline.

Our body’s ideal pH is around 7.36, on the alkaline side of things. When the body becomes acidic all sorts of health problems develop.

I’ll talk first about exercise, then about general health.

Alkalinity and Exercise

When you do exercise that works your muscles they first burn oxygen in the blood stream as fuel. Once you exceed the oxygen carrying capacity of your heart/lungs/blood your muscles turn to anaerobic respiration – literally “breathing without air”.

Stored reserves are burned in a chemical reaction that releases oxygen for the muscles to use, and also lactic acid. As the acidity in the muscle rises it begins to fatigue. This lactic acid build up is also responsible for muscle soreness and stiffness the day after exercising.

There are two things that will increase your body’s ability to stretch – heat and alkalinity.

Drinking sodium bicarbonate helps to keep the acidity of your body down. An intracellular pH buffer like Beta Alanine does the same thing on a really low level, but it’s more expensive than sodium bicarb.

Alkalinity and General Health

The bottom line is: alkalize to survive.

I can say that with 100% certainty. Let me tell you my friend story in this regard. After a lot of research I’m able to describe this to you, and let it be a cautionary tale:

His wife found a lump in her breast, and she didn’t do anything about it. She’s almost afraid of hospitals and doctors, and it’s only with great effort that I’m able to get her to go when it’s really necessary.

By the time he told me about it, it had grown significantly, and it was increasing in size at a rapid rate.
What had happened was that due to her diet her body had become very acidic. As a result her body drew the acidity away from her organs by building up cellulite. She then went on a fast from grains. This resulted in her body consuming the cellulite, but drawing the acidity back in.

If you want to lose weight, and especially cellulite, make sure that you alkalize your body, because cellulite is the body’s natural defense against an acidic state.

The acidity accumulated in her body tissues, and the breasts are particularly susceptible to this. As a result of the pathologically acidic state a tumor began.

The doctors were not able to describe this to us, but merely told us that we had no choice but for her to undergo surgery, chemotherapy, and radiation. I noted that the chart that they used to describe the situation to us had been supplied by a pharmaceutical company, and I also noted that they asked no questions about lifestyle, or showed any inclination to understand, explain, or address the preconditions that had caused the tumor.

I also noted that with a small amount of product training I could also sell those products to people coming in to the hospital.

We went out and did the research instead. Yes, there are conflicting opinions and experiences out there on the net, but it’s just a matter of reading through hundreds, or even thousands of them, and picking up the patterns.

That’s what we did, and alkalinity/acidity came out as the common factor.
We switched to an alkalizing diet and lifestyle, juicing greens hourly, eating alkalizing foods, and dropping acidic foods.

The result was that the tumor stopped growing completely.

One of the easiest and most powerful ways to alkalize your body is by drinking alkaline water. You can get pH strips at a health food store and test the water you drink.

We found that the bottled water supply that we were using was actually slightly acidic. By adding a small amount of sodium bicarbonate to it you can make it alkaline.

You can use pH strips to figure out how much to use, but I do it by taste – just enough to make the water taste “mellow”.
