Your body’s pH balance is an extremely important measure of what is going on inside you, from the size and flow of your blood cells to the quality of your skin and your digestion. This may sound extreme, but it is important for your body to find its natural balance — before a whole range of health problems and diseases creep their way into your life.

In order to reach an optimum level that is considered healthy or neutral, you want your pH to be around seven.
