you have a hard time bringing the high acidity of your lifestyle

and diet into balance to provide the slightly alkaline state your

body needs to reach its optimum performance. While this problem

can affect young children and young adults, it tends to become much

more of a concern once people enter their 40s and 50s, as the effects

of aging, stress, and environmental toxins accumulate.
