Zinc contributes to a healthy acid / base equilibrium
Our body needs both base-forming and acid-forming foods. In order to function optimally, we need slightly more basic foods (80%) than acidifying (20%). If this is balanced, we feel fit and energetic.
Our meals contain more acidifying foods, leaving more acid residues left. Refined and prepared meats are the biggest offenders. Other examples of acidifying foods include meat, coffee, fish, eggs, sugar, soft drinks and wheat products.
Basic foods include potatoes, vegetables and fruit.
Our body will acidify the acid residues using our body-like substance Nabicarbonate.
Consequences of acid residues for our body
Acid residues accumulate between the cells and the connective tissue. Thus, health problems arise from fatigue and chronic inflammation to arteriosclerosis.
The role of proteins can also be determined by the acidity of our blood. Only at optimal acidity can proteins remain stable and fulfill their key role in many physical processes.
Citra Xtr for athletes
Citra Xtr contains zinc that contributes to an acid-base equilibrium. In addition, Citra Xtr contains citrates. Citrate intake may help increase the bicarbonate buffer.
If a hot day is to be expected, we will already have extra sweating, which will lower our salt ratio (Sodium / Potassium). Prehydrate the two days before drinking 1.5 liters of water distributed over the day containing 5 to 15 g of Citra Xtr.
In high intensity efforts producing a lot of lactic acid, our buffer is no longer enough. This is one of the main causes of fatigue during these efforts.
