You’ve probably heard that as part of Get Slim for Summer, every Transformation Kit comes with a free bottle of Alkalete through the end of May. Alkalete plays a key role in maintaining a healthy body pH and in transforming your life physically as a whole, so today, we’re talking about why pH matters!
The pH Scale
To understand why pH matters, we need to start by understanding what it is! pH stands for power of hydrogen or potential of hydrogen. 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. That’s why it’s important to focus on a healthy body pH.
Why pH Matters
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 have been shown to 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!*
