# Why are buffers important to living things?

Jul 8, 2018

Well, it has been a long time since I studied biology...but what is $\text{homeostasis....?}$...

#### Explanation:

And AFAIK, $\text{homeostasis"="stability in the face of change}$...

Our biological fluids are EXQUISITELY buffered so as to maintain the $p H$ of our circulatory and digestive fluids in a specific range, such that the associated process respond to a given acidity. And clearly, homeostasis is assisted by buffering, by maintaining a $p H$ around a specific value.
