      CO2 increases acidity, so lowers the pH.
      I couldn’t get when you say "body". I think you meant stomach, because, you know, body (blood) pH is kept constant.

      hi there ! thanx for your reply . Well with body i mean definately stomach . well i am not a medical professional , so didn’t know that . well but again my question was th emineal water that we drink contains ” Ca , Sodium , Hydrogen carbonate , magnesium and flouride. Then again on the bottle its written , water with carbonic acid .
      My question is , is this kind of water good for the person who suffers from acidity or it makes ur stomach more acidic?

      well, is it written on that bottle about how many ppm of diluted carbon dioxyde into carbonic acid? I think it doesn’t matter since the level of carbonic acid in that water is still in the safe level…

      I agree with victor. I don’t think the level is high to cause a damage.

      Now I wanna ask….is this really caused by a high acidity in my stomach?
      I think it’s about a month ago, I ate many lemon-mint candies…hmm..I think it’s about more that 20 candies in an hour. Then, when it came to the night, suddenly my stomach felt really painfull…

      Hmm, lol, could it be due to you having eaten something wrong that didn’t agree with your stomach instead? :p

      Like allready stated above something probably just didnt agree with your stomach. Candie= not good for the body a lot of candie=def. not good for the body. Didn’t your parents ever tell you not to eat all your easter candie or you’ll get sick:)

      well, I don’t point to the candies, but to the lemon flavour of the candies which of course tasted sour..(we define sour as acidic…)
      So, is my stomachache is caused by thos acidity of the lemon candies? I mean to many eating candies = increasing acidity….
