How to help control heartburn

Question:  A lemon is acidic or alkaline?

Most people will say that a lemon is acidic, when in actuality it is alkaline.

Foods that we digest gets to our stomach and helps create more acid (increase heart burn and indigestion) or the food can also help to neutralize the acid ph in our bodies.

Naturally our body stays around a 7PH – when we move or increase muscle contractions our muscular system will give off lactic acid and therefore increase the PH of our body to a higher acidic level.

The better shape a person is in the better ability they have to buffer lactic acid.  What separates recreational weekend warriors from Olympic athletes and professionals is the ability to move and buffer lactic acid
