Potential hydrogen, or “pH”, is the level used to describe how acidic or alkaline a solution is. A pH of 0 is acidic while a pH of 14 is alkaline, and 7 is neutral. The higher the pH number is the more alkaline and oxygen-rich it is. The lower the pH number is, the more acidic and oxygen-deprived it is.

Those levels vary throughout your body. Your blood is slightly alkaline, with a pH between 7.35 and 7.45. Your stomach is very acidic, with a pH of 3.5 or below, so it can break down food. And your urine changes, depending on what you eat – that’s how your body keeps the level in your blood steady.

Our bodies thrive at a neutral, slightly alkaline pH typically between 7.35 – 7.45, however, so many of the foods and beverages we consume are highly acidic including processed foods, animal protein, and coffee.


Here are some of our favorite alkalizing foods…

  • Weight gain/loss
  • Bladder and kidney concerns.
  • Immune deficiency
  • Acceleration of free radical damage.
  • Structural system weakness, including brittle bones, hip fractures and joint discomfort
