pH-Basic is formulated to assist in balancing the pH of individuals who are either too acidic or too alkaline. This formula is designed to bypass the acidic environment of the stomach, delivering nutrients directly to the small intestine. By optimizing the pH of the small intestine, rather than neutralizing stomach acid, systemic pH balance is achieved. Each bottle of pH-Basic Contains pH test strips. pH-Basic Contains a synergistic blend of minerals, enzymes and herbs to maintain 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).
The Importance of pH Balance
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 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 5 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. If the blood becomes too acidic the body will balance the pH at all costs. It takes some of the alkaline forming elements from the enzymes in the small intestine to stay balanced. The small intestine then becomes too acidic to digest foods optimally. The pancreas, gallbladder and liver are then forced to make up for this deficiency in order to metabolize foods properly. This has a direct bearing on metabolic enzyme production, which is literally involved in every biochemical reaction in the body. 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 increase and fat is stored instead of being metabolized. When malnutrition or starvation sets in, the body becomes acidic and as a safety, insulin is over produced so that all available calories are stored as fat for future use. As a result, weight gain is common and weight loss becomes more difficult.
All of this can lead to common symptoms of acidity which include but are not limited to occasional heartburn, acid discomfort, indigestion, weight gain, difficulty losing weight, poor metabolism, mineral deficiencies, occasional constipation, fatigue, brain fog, frequent urination, and sore muscles.
One of the best ways to determine whether or not we are maintaining a proper pH is to test the urine. This is accurate because one of the most efficient ways for our bodies to maintain balance is to utilize the kidneys. If we become too acidic, our kidneys will eliminate acid through the urine. This will help make the blood more alkaline, so the urine pH will be acidic. The urine then is an excellent indicator to determine if our diet is too rich in foods that make us acidic or alkaline.
The optimal urine pH is between 6 and 7 on the pH scale. Enzymedica's pH-Basic is specifically designed to maintain the body's optimal pH level. It Contains a synergistic blend of minerals, enzymes and herbs. It also serves to enhance the efficiency of enzymes in the body (digestive and metabolic). pH-Basic
