pH Balance and Enzyme Optimization!pH-Basic is specifically designed to raise alkalinity. Each bottle of pH-Basic contains pH test strips to help determine the effectiveness of the product. It contains a synergistic blend of minerals, enzymes, super-foods and herbs. It can be taken for maintenance or therapeutically to elevate your body's pH if you are finding it difficult to make an impact through diet. It also serves to enhance the efficiency of enzymes in the body (digestive and metabolic).
As a result of acid forming foods, high fat, mucous forming foods, and toxic food residues, the body becomes too acidic. The human body should be slightly alkaline in order to build an alkaline reserve for acid-forming conditions such as stress, lack of exercise, or poor dietary habits.
What is pH?The term pH stands for "potential" of "Hydrogen". It is the amount of hydrogen ions in a particular solution. The more ions, the more acid the solution. The fewer ions the more alkaline (base) the solution.
pH is measured on a scale of 0 to 14 with seven being neutral. The lower the pH number the more acidic it is and the higher the number the more alkaline. For example, a pH of 3 is more acidic than a pH of 5 and a pH of 9 is more alkaline than a pH of 6.
As humans, a normal pH of all tissues and fluids of the body (except the stomach) is slightly alkaline. The most critical pH is in the blood. All other organs and fluids will fluctuate in their range in order to keep the blood a strict pH between 7.35 and 7.45 (slightly alkaline). This process is called homeostasis. The body makes constant adjustments in tissue and fluid pH to maintain this very narrow pH range in the blood.
To be too acidic in the body can have far reaching consequences. For example, if the blood becomes too acidic the body will balance the pH at all costs. This can lead to common symptoms which include but are not limited to heart burn, acid reflux, indigestion, weight gain, difficulty losing weight, poor metabolism, mineral deficiencies, constipation, fatigue, brain fog, frequent urination, hormonal imbalances, sore muscles and the list goes on.
Similar problems may occur if we become too alkaline, though this is much less likely. Obviously, maintaining the proper pH in the blood, digestive tract, tissues and fluids is essential in supporting optimal health.
Must haveGreat Enzyme product. My protein intake is too high considering how much cheese, milk and meat I eat. This is a great product along with fiber on a daily basis.
