Bicarb vs. Joint Pain
pHAlo™ vs. Joint Pain/Arthritis
According to the CDC, arthritis affects 23% (54 million) of US adults. The total national arthritis-attributable medical care costs and earnings losses among adults with arthritis in 2013 was over 303.5 billion dollars. There are different classifications of arthritis, each with different causative factors including metabolic abnormalities, wear and tear, infection, autoimmune disease and underlying disease.
Inflammation, which causes pain and stiffness, worsens the process.
Arthritis is also called joint inflammation
Arthritis can stem from chronic acidosis which leads to inflammation, insufficient nutritional supply to tissues and decreased oxygen within the joints or surrounding tissue. Studies have revealed that acidosis is a direct link to the development and worsening of these conditions.
More than 3 million people in the U.S. suffer from a joint disorder which features inflammation in one or more joints of the body. Women are more common than men to experience a joint disorder.
INFLAMMATION OF JOINTS:
- joint pain
- reduced motion
CHRONIC INFLAMMATORY PAIN, WHEN NOT EFFECTIVELY TREATED, IS A COSTLY HEALTH PROBLEM AND HAS A HARMFUL EFFECT ON ALL ASPECTS OF HEALTH-RELATED QUALITY OF LIFE.
One (1) out of four (4) adults over the age of 50 have low serum bicarbonate levels which leads to an acidic environment within the body, chronic acidosis, and increased inflammation.
Maintaining an alkaline environment within the tissues and blood can result in a significant decrease in inflammation, pain and swelling of the joints!
The "western diet" is thought to contribute to mild metabolic acidosis via the supply of acid precursors from foods. This is important to note because aged adults are less able to excrete H+ ions and are more prone to develop mild, but slowly increasing metabolic acidosis with negative functional outcomes including reduced torque and lower gait speed.
Lower serum bicarbonate levels are associated with slower gait speed and reduced quadriceps strength in older adults.
According to a study in the American Journal of Kidney Diseases (2011 July:58(1):29-38) 2,675 adults 50 years and older were studied and it was revealed that:
(1) Older age is associated with low serum pH and bicarbonate levels;
(2) Alkali supplementation in older persons has demonstrated beneficial effects on nitrogen balance and skeletal metabolism;
(3) low levels of serum bicarbonate leads to metabolic acidosis and associated with reduced muscle strength and gait speed in the general population.
