In the same way that the bones act as a reserve for alkaline calcium, your muscles are reservoirs for the mineral magnesium, which is also alkaline. Most nutrition experts estimate that 80 percent of people are deficient in this important mineral. If you’re prone to headaches or muscle tension, you may find that supplementing with magnesium is helpful. Most people take between 400 to 800 mg of magnesium.
4. pH Drops and Powders
There are special formulations on the market designed specifically for balancing your body chemistry. And, as with anything, there is a huge variation in the quality of these products so it may take some experimentation to see which one works best for you. They are usually named “pH drops” or “pH powder” or something similar. Usually they contain a solution of chlorine dioxide or hydrogen peroxide, which releases oxygen in your body, helping to restore biochemical balance. Sometimes the powders contain a variety of alkaline mineral salts, namely: potassium, magnesium, manganese, calcium, and iron. Follow package instructions for use.
