Maintaining proper pH levels is imperative for our health. Our bodies need to keep a pH level of around 7.4 in order to stay healthy.

Ever increasing industrialization has caused elevated CO2 deposition lowering the ocean’s pH from 8.2 to 8.1 causing a negative effect on marine life of all kinds.  On top of this the pH of the soil has an effect on the mineral profile of the food we consume.
