Blood pH lower than 7.0 or higher than 8.0 may cause severe medical complications. DOE indicates severe upset in blood pH (<7.25), causes disturbances in the body, which can lead to renal failure. Acidosis may occur with blood pH below 7.0 that can cause a coma. For the other extreme, alkalosis causes the heart to beat too fast and can cause a heart attack. No one should attempt to adjust blood pH with a liquid product including bottled water, since it gets into the blood stream too fast, gives a quick boost of energy because the heart is beating faster, and can cause heart damage or stroke.
