To maintain good health the body is constantly seeking to get rid of the excess acids that irritate the tissues and deplete them of minerals. One of the principal systems it uses for this purpose is the renal system (kidneys). The normal rate of acid excretion through the kidneys gives urine a pH that falls between 6.75 and 7.25. By testing the degree of acidity of the urine, you can determine whether your body is eliminating a normal quantity of acids. If the acid excretion rate is higher than normal, the urinary pH will be more acidic. This low urinary pH is also an indication that the body is saturated and therefore in an acid state. This is where drinking alkaline Kangen water and an alkaline diet comes in.
Another indicator of the overall pH balance in your body is the pH of your saliva. When your body has the mineral reserves that it should, the abundance of minerals will show up in a saliva ph test as a pH reading of 7.0 to 7.50. A low saliva pH reading indicates that the mineral reserves in your body are low, and are being used to buffer acids elsewhere in the body.
There is a strong correlation between the pH of the body's internal environment and that of the urine and saliva: urine and saliva become acidic when the body's internal environment becomes acidic. You can discover the pH of these fluids by using pHion™ pH Strips. These pH test strips are made specifically to test saliva and urine, and are the most accurate and economical test strips on the market.
Don't trust your body to just any chemical lab litmus pH paper.
pHion Diagnostic pH Test Strips™ are unlike most pH test strips or pH papers on the market. Due to the narrow range in pH of these bodily fluids (generally 5.8 to 7.6) it is imperative that a pH test strip give a clear indication in small pH unit increments. Ours do. Our test strips give an indication in .25 pH unit increments, and test a range of 4.5 to 9.0. Plus, pH Stix use the double color indicator method, allowing for a more accurate determination of the pH value of what you are testing. Throw away the pH paper, and pick up the pHion Diagnostic pH Test strips.
Compare pHion Strips™ with standard pH paper from rolls. pH Paper tends to bleed when it gets wet, making the determination of the correct color quite a challenge. pH pHion Stix are different- the reagent is affixed to a plastic strip. No paper, no bleeding, no mess; easy testing. pHion pH Strips™ - the clear choice. pHion Diagnostic pH Test Strips™ come packaged in a pack containing 90 pH test strips. We offer volume discounts as stated below.
This is what Dr. Ted Baroody, author of Alkalize or Die has to say about pHion Stix™: "I get hundreds of calls for pH testing materials. pH testing is very complex. There are individual pH testing substances for everything, but they are very expensive. This particular strip is reasonably priced too. I have looked a long time and through many companies to find these quality pH strips. My experience with litmus pH paper strips has not been good. I do not recommend them."
SALIVA Test: Take a saliva reading before and after meals. The alkaline levels of your saliva should be greater after meals because there is an abundance of alkaline-rich minerals in saliva. Then test your saliva 60 minutes after a meal. If the pH level is lower than 6.75, then your alkaline mineral reserves are low.
URINE Test: For best test results, test your second urination in the morning. You will likely see urine pH become more alkaline as the day progresses. Test frequently during the day, and determine an average.
