Alkalising Salts are more than your everyday health relief salts. This is a bespoke product which contains a combination of alkaline salts including Sodium Bicarbonate, Magnesium Carbonate, Potassium Bicarbonate and Calcium Carbonate. This product is an alkaline buffer solution.
If you have either a poor diet, insufficient exercise, over-exercising (especially too much cardio, which contributes to stress) or chronic stress, you could be causing harm, potentially becoming more acidic in your internal environment. When our body becomes acidic, minerals such as potassium, sodium, magnesium and calcium may be stolen from our vital organs and bones to combat or buffer the acid, this is where our Alkalising Salts come into place.
WHAT ARE THE BENEFITS BEHIND ALKALISING?
Disease thrives in acidity. Health thrives in alkalinity. Neutralising the toxic acidity in your body will ultimately help rediscover your body’s true performance potential.
During exercise, muscles metabolise glucose (sugar) into energy. Muscles receive glucose continually through the blood and have their own stores of sugar (called glycogen). Once the intensity of exercise exceeds the lactate threshold, muscles begin to use glucose inefficiently, through alternative chemical reactions. Lactic acid forms naturally in the muscles from this vigorous exercise but once we’ve overdone it during a workout or run, the body can’t clear lactic acid or lactate quickly enough, which causes the acid levels in your body to build up.
Since we all exercise to benefit our health, this acidic build-up needs to be alkalized time to time, as just like everything else in this world, the human body must maintain its own perfect pH level in order for its systems to function properly, and as a result it includes keeping rogue cells from becoming a disease.
BEHIND THE KEY INGREDIENTS
Sodium Bicarbonate, or it’s household name baking soda, has always been that traditional homemade antacid remedy that is easily made by mixing it with water, as it’s a molecule that acts as a buffering agent against acidity. It is a salt composed of sodium ions and bicarbonate ions and is a component of the mineral Natron, which is found dissolved in many mineral springs. The appearance of this is a white solid that is crystalline but it is often seen as a fine powder.
Magnesium Carbonate is another popular bioavailable form of magnesium, that turns into magnesium chloride when it mixes with the hydrochloric acid in our stomachs and because of this process, it has properties of an antacid. Having magnesium carbonate will help increase your magnesium intake levels as it is a nutritionally essential mineral as it promotes protein synthesis, healthy bones & teeth, energy and aiding the function of our muscles.
Potassium bicarbonate is a colourless, odourless, slightly basic, salty substance. Potassium helps aid your cells, blood pressure, muscles, and nerves work properly and having potassium bicarbonate will prevent you from having any low amounts of potassium in the blood.
Calcium Carbonate is the carbonic salt of calcium and as you may know, calcium plays a primary role in many of your body’s basic functions. Your body needs calcium in order to circulate blood, move muscle, and contributes to the normal function of digestive enzymes, but if you can’t manage to get enough calcium from diet alone having calcium carbonate is one of the minerals that you’d take to increase your daily levels.
WHEN WOULD I USE IT?
For best results, we recommend beginning with having 1 scoop 20-30 minutes before breakfast and then build up to 1 scoop before each meal depending on bowel tolerance.
WHO’S THIS PRODUCT FOR?
