We used bio-electronic terrain analyser to monitor venous blood, saliva, the first two morning urine specimens in regard to pH, redox potential (rH(2)) and resistivity (r), in a group of 48 athletes and a group of 66 healthy adults with preferred sedentary lifestyle. The study was conducted during one-year period (within the years 2002-2003). The results showed that 79% of athletes and 82% of adults with preferred sedentary lifestyle had a tendency to compensated low-grade systemic metabolic acidosis. Before implementing any corrections by food or food supplements, an elementary assessment of acid-base balance would be necessary.
