Athletes suffering from cellular acidity
We're currently professionally translating all content. In the meantime, this article has been translated by Google Translate. Sorry if this isn't 100% relevant.
Among the main triggers of serious diseases, there is the accumulation of CO2 in the cells that deprive them of oxygen, therefore energy. The excess of acidity comes from many factors, one of which is stress but also the industrial food made of coffee, sugars, white bread, refined cereals, alcohol, soda, cheese, cured meats and other pre-cooked dishes ... When everything well acids are driven out by the urine, but unfortunately most of the time they will accumulate and promote hypoxia (lack of oxygen).
Sports enthusiasts who train several times a week, who only drink water or, worse, do nothing with the effort, show at the test of my Esteck machine a very great acidosis.
Anaerobic (oxygen-free) training will naturally increase the athlete's acidity, hence the interest of properly feeding athletes' cells during exercise and just after exercise with appropriate drinks.
But let's go back to our cellular oxygenation. Two Nobel Prize winners, Warburg and Donagh, have shown that unlike normal cells, cancer cells can easily grow in a low oxygen environment. On the other hand, they become very sensitive to oxygen and are even unable to survive the presence of a normal level of oxygen.
Experiments show that by increasing the oxygenation of cancerous tissues, cells have less resistance in the presence of an attack of the immune system. It is known that the immune system has a constant need for oxygen to defend itself. Well, well, two big words have just been released shot after blow: "immune system"! And which organ works largely for an optimal immune system? It's our famous second brain, the intestine.
If we return to our sports enthusiast who is regularly engaged in high intensity sessions, he puts his bowel hard contribution very regularly. Indeed during an anaerobic type of effort, the intestine is very little vascularized at the expense of the brain and muscles; this results in less good intestinal oxygenation resulting in a compromised immune system ... We begin to understand the importance of pre and probiotics to strengthen the microbiota sportsman.
But even in a normal state, without much physical activity, our body constantly needs oxygen to produce cellular energy, including ATP molecules, at the level of mitochondria, our real cell batteries.
There are different ways to improve the oxygenation of our cells, among them, a diet rich in alkaline foods such as: avocados, berries, ripe bananas, carrots, raisins, celery, garlic , alfalfa sprouts, sweet apples, apricots, pears, pineapples, passion fruit, vegetable juices, chicory, asparagus, seaweed, watercress, lemon, melon, mango , beetroot, watermelon.
Honestly when I reread the list of foods that I just proposed, I tell myself that few sportsmen consume daily five portions of these! If this were the case we would certainly avoid many injuries, see autoimmune-type diseases or even worse cancers more and more identified among athletes ...
