An Intro to pH
Maintaining a healthy body pH is an important part of transforming your life. pH can be a little confusing if you’re learning about it for the first time, so today we have an intro to pH for you!
pH stands for power of hydrogen or potential of hydrogen, and it’s a way of measuring the hydrogen ion concentration of a solution. Essentially, pH measures how acidic or how alkaline something is using a scale from 0-14. On the pH scale, 7 is neutral. A pH above 7 is called alkaline or basic, and a pH below 7 is acidic.
It may seem obvious that extremely acidic compounds would be dangerous for human health, but extremely alkaline solutions are also harmful to humans. For example, battery acid is very acidic, and liquid drain cleaner is very alkaline. They’re on opposite ends of the scale, but both are dangerous for human health. The closer you get to the neutral pH of seven, the safer compounds are for you.
Your blood is naturally slightly alkaline, with a pH between 7.35 and 7.45. It’s critical that your blood stays within this range, so your body regulates it for you regardless of lifestyle choices that you make. Your body pH, on the other hand, is susceptible to fluctuations due to your lifestyle, whether it’s the food you eat, your stress levels, or the time you spend being physically active.
Your body functions at its best when you have a healthy body pH, but the typical western diet and lifestyle can make that a challenge. Fortunately, you can use Alkalete to promote a healthy body pH! Alkalete contains mineral salts of calcium, potassium, and magnesium, which can help reduce excess dietary acidic load. These nutrients are gradually released through a patented time-release delivery system, which improves nutrient availability. It’s the perfect way to promote a healthy body pH so you can take your health to the next level!
