pH-Attain is specifically designed to maintain the body's optimal pH level. It Contains a synergistic blend of minerals, enzymes, and botanicals.

The term pH stands for potential of hydrogen. It is the amount of hydrogen ions in a particular solution. The more hydrogen ions, the more acidic the solution. The fewer hydrogen ions, the more alkaline (basic) the solution. pH is measured on a scale of 0 to 14 with 7 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 9, and a pH of 9 is more alkaline than a pH of 6.

As humans, a normal pH for 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.

The body will balance blood pH at all costs
If the blood becomes too acidic, alkaline forming elements from enzymes in the small intestine may be used to balance blood pH, leaving the small intestine too acidic to digest foods optimally. Food intolerance may occur as the pancreas, gallbladder and liver are forced to make up for digestive deficiency. This process has a direct bearing on metabolic enzyme production, which is involved in every biochemical reaction in the body. The results can be lowered immune function, fatigue, hormonal imbalances, absorption and digestive problems.

Kidneys regulate body pH
If the body becomes too acidic, the kidneys will attempt to eliminate acid through the urine. As the body becomes more alkaline, the urine pH will become acidic. Testing urine pH can, therefore, be an excellent indicator of the impact of diet on our acidic/alkaline balance.† When there is too much acidity, the bones will leach calcium, the most alkaline mineral. This can lead to reduced absorption of supplemental minerals and bone density problems. Insulin levels may increase and fat stored instead of being metabolized. Common symptoms of acidity include but are not limited to occasional heartburn, acid discomfort, indigestion, weight gain, difficulty losing weight, poor metabolism, mineral deficiencies, constipation, fatigue, brain fog, frequent urination, hormonal imbalances and sore muscles.

Environmental toxicity linked to pH imbalance
Noted environmental medicine expert, Walter Crinnion,† N.D. explains that exposure to environmental toxicants will make the body more acidic and that acidity may actually prevent the timely excretion of these compounds from the body. By alkalinizing one's urine, the amount of toxicants leaving the body increases. A balanced pH will also promote bone health.

Dr. Crinnion encourages his patients to maintain a urine pH of 7.5 or, better still, 8.0. To accomplish this, Crinnion recommends eating a diet with less animal protein and more fruits, vegetables, grains and beans. In addition, the removal of dietary foods that dramatically acidify one's urine is also recommended. Sugar and alcohol are at the top of his list, both of which have also been shown to enhance magnesium excretion. Crinnion cites research which indicates that drinking glass-bottled alkaline mineral (sparkling) water can also help to increase your urinary pH.2

According to Crinnion, maintaining healthy urine pH is the easiest and cheapest way of reducing the body's toxic burden, in addition to avoidance of chemical toxicants. In Crinnion's view, alkalizing supplements also offer a great resource for individuals with food intolerance, particularly if taken immediately upon experiencing a symptom.

pH-Attain is specifically designed to maintain the body's optimal pH level. It Contains a synergistic blend of minerals, enzymes, and botanicals. pH-Attain may also be used as an alkalinizing agent to support the body's ability to reduce reactivity in individuals experiencing food intolerance symptoms.
