PH in your body

  1. Jul 18, 2010 #1
    The pH of our blood ranges normally from 7.35 to 7.45.

    My question is that how this pH is maintained in our blood.

    Are there any reactions that keeps our blood almost neutralized ? !

    AFAIK, pH is maintained in humans by the bicarbonate buffer- pH is controlled by CO2 levels.
