Acid-base balance is the term used to describe regulatory mechanisms for metabolic processes in the human body. For these mechanisms to function smoothly, acids and bases must be in a natural balance in which the pH of the blood is in the alkaline range.
Excessive consumption of acid-forming foods and beverages such as bread, meat, pasta, sweets, coffee and soft drinks, but also stress, lack of exercise and smoking can severely disturb this balance. The result can be impaired metabolic processes, various medical conditions and discomfort.
The base-forming electrolytes in Basium can effectively support the acid-base balance in cases of hyperacidity caused by diet or lifestyle.
The balance between acids and bases is one of the factors that determines whether we feel healthy and fit. Our body naturally does everything to maintain a harmonious acid-base balance. Without being aware of it, we hinder it in this process every day and thus literally become "sour".
In case of hyperacidity, there is firstly a deficiency of base-forming electrolytes such as calcium, magnesium, potassium and zinc. Secondly, there is an excess of acidic metabolic products such as uric acid or lactic acid.
Since the symptoms of hyperacidity can also have other causes, it can sometimes remain undetected for a long time. If you often feel tired, lacking energy, stressed, exhausted or unbalanced, and you are also easily irritable and your digestion is not in balance, you should consider possibly being over-acidified due to diet and lifestyle.
Think of your body as a factory where chemical reactions produce energy and heat. It is perfectly normal for acids and other waste products to be produced. Our body has numerous ways of neutralizing them and eliminating them through our lungs, kidneys, blood and skin.
This maintains a harmonious balance so that all metabolic processes can take place under optimal conditions. If an unhealthy lifestyle makes this balance shift and the acids get out of hand, it can have a negative effect on our well-being and health.
To any food, the body reacts either basic or acidic. But you cannot determine whether foods are acidic by their taste. Lemons and grapefruits, for example, taste very acidic, but they have a strong alkalizing effect in the body.
Carbonated drinks, white bread and flour products, cheese, meat and fish, eggs, sweets, alcohol and coffee are acid-forming. In other words, these are precisely those foods that are nowadays consumed in large quantities by many people.
But also too much stress, intensive sports and too little intake of water promote the formation of acids.
Whole grain products and most dairy products are at least weakly alkalizing. Fruits and vegetables are the only foods that have a strong alkalizing effect. These are precisely the foods that nowadays are consumed in far too small quantities by many people.
So it's not surprising that over time the over-acidification of the body gets out of hand and for "inexplicable" reasons one feels weak, tired and unwell. Therefore, it is very important to recognize an imbalance of the acid-base balance and do something about it.
The pH range of the blood should always be between 7 and 7.6. Levels below or above this can lead to health risks. Therefore, it is essential for the body to compensate for an excess of acids. The acid-base balance is responsible for keeping the pH of the blood constant. To do this, the body must absorb electrolytes, also known as minerals and nutrient salts, through food.
If the body doesn't get enough electrolytes over food, it has no choice but to deplete its mineral stores. These depots are located throughout the body, but especially in the bones, hair, skin, teeth and joints.
In case of hyperacidity, it is therefore not only a matter of supplying the body with sufficient base-forming electrolytes (minerals) to neutralize excess acids. Mineral stores, which may already have been attacked, must also be replenished to avoid a deficiency of these important vital substances. Because we can only remain healthy and vital if our mineral stores are absolutely full.
The daily overabundance of acids causes the body to use up the important mineral stores to neutralize these acids. With Basium Alkaline Mineral Powder, the body can be supplied with exactly these minerals.
The importance of an adequate supply of minerals becomes clear when one considers the many different tasks of minerals in the human body. They have been scientifically studied and confirmed by the European Food Safety Authority (EFSA).

In addition, Basium Alkaline Mineral Powder contains silicium, vitamin B2 and the dietary fiber inulin.
If the intestinal flora is disturbed and undigested carbohydrates and proteins enter the colon, fermentation acids are formed. These are absorbed into the body and so they contribute to hyperacidity.
The vegetable fiber inulin can promote the development of harmonious intestinal flora and increase the number of lactobacilli and bifidobacteria. This effect of inulin can lead to better intestinal function and reduction of fermentation acid formation.
In addition, there is evidence that inulin promotes the absorption of alkaline minerals such as calcium and magnesium. Therefore, inulin in combination with high-quality organic minerals is ideal to positively influence the acid-base balance and at the same time replenish the mineral stores.
