basicity

 [ba-sis´ĭ-te]
1. the quality of being a base, or basic.
2. the combining power of an acid.

ba·sic·i·ty

(bā-sis'i-tē),
1. The valence or combining power of an acid, or the number of replaceable atoms of hydrogen in its molecule.
2. The characteristic(s) of being a chemical base.

basicity

(1) The state of being a base; basic.
(2) The power of an acid to combine with one or more atoms or equivalents of a base, based on its number of replaceable H+ ions.

Patient discussion about basicity

Q. what are the basics products we as a humans, need to have in our diet?

A. A regular healthy diet should be comprised of a 40-50% carbohydrate (bread, rice, etc.), 30-40% protein (dairy, meat, chicken, fish) and 20% fat. Other important ingredients are fruit and vegetables, that contain large amounts of fibers and vitamins.

Q. How do i keep my self fit and healthy? what are the basic things i should and need to do in order to achieve a goal like this ?

A. from research they did they found out that in a long term doing regular physical activity will not change life span. but they did discovered that it dramatically changes the quality of this life.
