More on offsetting fatigue and have more energy for longer
According to new research our body maintains itself at 7.36pH and exercise can compromise this pH encouraging us to fatigue and lose energy. Maintaining this alkaline design of the body is key to maintaining energy levels. It is also being widely commented that minerals such as sodium are the key to that maintenance.

Minerals are essential for the body to grow, repair and regulate all bodily functions and can be categorized into major minerals minerals and trace mineral. Sodium is one of the major minerals along with calcium, magnesium and potassium.

Dr Robert Young a microbiologist who studied over 20,000 live blood samples has come up with an hypothesis about these 4 major minerals. Its state that magnesium, potassium and calcium are nuclear transformations of sodium which simply mean sodium + hydrogen, oxygen or both = magnesium, potassium or calcium.

The word formula for this hypothesis is;

1) Sodium (11) + hydrogen (1) <=> magnesium (12)

2) Sodium (11) + oxygen (8) <=> potassium (19)

3) Sodium (11) + oxygen (8) + hydrogen (1) = calcium (20)

Magnesium help maintain body temperature, potassium regulate the delicate balance of extra and intracellular fluids and calcium helps keep your bones strong.

Fatigue and low energy levels come due a build up of metabolic acids from exercise such as cycling and dietary acids such as sugar and caffeine. By maintaining the 7.36 pH of the body, your energy levels will remain consistent and without the foundational mineral of sodium you cannot maintain the 7.36pH.
