Similarly, if h + ^+ + start superscript, plus, end superscript concentrations drop too low, the equation will be pulled the left and carbonic acid will turn into bicarbonate, donating h + ^+ + start superscript, plus, end superscript ions to the solution without this buffer system, the body's ph would fluctuate enough to put survival in.
