    An overly acidic system can wreak havoc not just on your digestive system but also your bones and skin. How so? Bad bacteria and viruses thrive in an acidic environment, and in order for the body to maintain its preferred pH of about 7.4, it will remove calcium from the bone to alkalinize itself.
