An acidic pH can lead to cell malnutrition

The cells in your body bathe in the fluid that surrounds them and we are approximately 70% water. This fluid allows nutrients to go into cells and toxins to come out. If the fluid has a pH level of between 6.3 and 6.6, the cells can accept nutrients and release toxins easily, anymore acidic and your cells struggle to grow and repair efficiently.

If the pH of the body is acidic so is the fluid and the cells outer membrane becomes a little thicker to protect the cell from acid. The body is very versatile and will adapt to change in order to survive, much like the body will protect the hand, by toughening the skin to a callus.
