How Much Do You Know About Acid? Take Our “Acid Test” & Find Out!

Acid Test

Most people only think of excess acid when their stomach is rumbling in the hours immediately following an indulgent meal or evening of imbibing cocktails. But the reality is that acid is everywhere in our lives – caused not just by unhealthy foods and drinks, but by stress and even (somewhat counterintuitively) strenuous exercise.

Moreover, acid is often responsible for far more troubling symptoms than just upset tummies (which is why traditional antacid pills only provide very temporary relief at best). Did you know, for example, that excess acid, whether stemming from food, drink, stress or exercise (the latter related to lactic acid build-up) can lead to such conditions as osteoarthritis, gout, muscle fatigue, joint pain and acid reflux?
