A Bundle of our pH Strips and New pH Adjust (only available in this bundle)
pH balance is incredibly important because it’s very hard for things to go “wrong” in your body if the balance between alkaline and acidic is dialed in on the sweet spot.
For humans, the optimal pH level is 7.365. That’s just a notch to the right of the seven you see below.
On the pH scale above (you may remember it from chemistry class), anything from 1-7 is known as an acid. The lower the number on the pH scale, the more acidic something is. And the more acidic something is, the more dangerous it may be.
Think about how battery acid eats away at human flesh and you’ll understand what I mean by dangerous.
However, just because an acid is potentially dangerous doesn’t mean that it’s not useful. For instance, the hydrochloric acid found in your stomach has a pH of 2. That’s a good thing, because if it was less acidic your body couldn’t break down food and digest it properly.
As the numbers on the scale begin to climb past seven, things become more alkaline. Too much alkalinity in the body also poses a problem. For instance, strong alkalinity results in the formation of strong chemicals like ammonia, which aren’t necessarily beneficial for human health in large amounts.
When it comes to your body, you want to be neutral, or just above neutral.
For a human body that proper ph balance is right around 7.365.
Most of you reading this will never need to worry about becoming too alkaline, simply because your diet, as well as a list of environmental factors
, promote acid forming inside the body.
pH ADJUST may be used to increase salivary and urinary pH; counteract overly acidic conditions in the digestive tract, blood, and kidneys; and to supplement the body with the minerals potassium, magnesium, and sodium. The product contains (in powder form) potassium bicarbonate, magnesium carbonate, potassium glycinate, and sodium bicarbonate.
INGREDIENTS: Potassium bicarbonate, magnesium carbonate, potassium glycinate, and sodium bicarbonate.
DIRECTIONS: As a dietary supplement, take ¼ tsp in 4–8 ounces of purified water preferably away from food, or as directed by a health care professional. For extremely acidic conditions, try 4–10 doses per day, depending on acidity level. Use pH paper to ensure pH levels remain balanced, and do not become too alkaline (alkalosis may occur above pH 8.2).
TESTING pH LEVELS: The best way to test pH levels is to use litmus paper, which HPDI offers in rolls (Hydrion brand) for this purpose. You can test both salivary and urinary pH. Advantages of pH paper include rapid results, ease of use, and cost effectiveness.
The color of the litmus paper indicates the pH level. Most litmus paper comes with an indicator chart showing colors corresponding to various pH levels. Alkaline states will generally produce a dark green, blue or purple color (most basic). Acidic states will range from yellow (most acidic) to light green.
Salivary pH and urinary pH are significantly affected by recent food consumption and other factors, so it it best to test pH hours after meals or in the morning when you awake. We prefer to measure urinary pH since results are more consistent. Measuring urinary pH is a simple as placing a few drops of urine on the paper or dipping the paper into a sample cup of fresh urine.
It is best to test your pH in the morning before consuming foods or drinks. Salivary and urinary pH are affected by recent food consumption, so re-test several hours after eating, and additionally throughout the day.
A consistent pH measurement of less than 7.0 indicates that you are too acidic (values less than 6.2 show extreme acidity). This indicates that you should consume more alkaline forming foods and/or take pH Adjust. A single dose of pH Adjust can change conditions in the body from acidic to alkaline within a few hours.
DOES NOT CONTAIN: wheat, gluten, rye, barley, oats, corn, yeast, egg, dairy, soy, GMOs, sugar, wax, artificial preservatives, flavorings, or colorings.
HAIOTB pH TEST STRIP
Accurately Measure Your pH Levels to show your state of Alkalinity in 15 seconds.
pH (power of hydrogen)is a measure of the acidity or alkalinity of a solution. A neutral pH is 7.0. The lower the pH the more acidic, and the higher the pH the more alkaline.
Maintaining a balanced pH is important to help you maintain energy and keep your body healthy and balanced. It is an indicator of your overall health
For best results, obtain a clean-catch urine sample.
INSTRUCTIONS FOR USE:
To Test Urine: Test the first and second urine of the day and record the average reading. To test, briefly place the pH Strip in the urine stream, shake the excess fluid and wait 15 seconds to read your pH.
To Test Saliva: Wait two hours after eating. Spit saliva into a spoon, dip the pH Strip into the fluid and wait 15 seconds to read your pH.
Results: A reading of pH 7.0+ is perfect, pH 6.5 is acidic and below pH 6.0 is very acidic. Test 2-3 times per day and daily over a longer time period to get an average reading.
Note: Once you recorded your results, we recommend you consult with a trained health practitioner.
Important:Replace cap immediately and tightly after use. Do not touch the test areas. Store in a cool, dry place. For in-vitro use only.
Unless you graduated from high school in the past 10 years, I doubt many of you remember the specifics of the important subject I’m about to talk about. And while your high school chemistry class probably didn’t spend much time on this subject…
