What is pH?

What is pH? Potential Hydrogen (pH) is the measure of acidity or alkalinity of any substance or solution. The pH scale runs from 0 to 14, with 7 as the neutral or midpoint. Liquids with a pH of 1 are very acidic and liquids with a pH of 13 are very alkaline.

Proponents of alkaline water believe it makes our bodies less acidic. They believe if our pH is kept around 7.4 this keeps us healthy (read article by Sang Whang on our Research Articles page).

They believe that if you have too much acid in your body it can weaken all your systems, by borrowing minerals from your bones, teeth and organs to neutralize the excess acidity. High acid levels called acidosis could interfere with your cells’ ability to heal or produce energy and can allow cancer to flourish.

A study called “Acid pH in Tumors and its Potential for Therapeutic Exploitation” showed the cancerous tumors generally had a more acid than the normal tissues.

In order for our bodies to maintain a perfect living environment, the level of pH we need to achieve is as close to 7.4 as possible. Just a little bit on the alkaline side of neutral. Because pH is a measurement of our body’s electrical balance that helps to regulate a variety of bodily functions, if our pH varies too much from the ideal level of 7.4, it becomes very difficult for enzymes to function properly.

It wasn’t that long ago, perhaps as far back as the early 1900’s, that doctors began studying how foods affected the body’s pH balance. They learned that by simply changing a person’s diet, pH levels could be returned to normal and many health issues could clear up.

“Acidosis” is a term used when the body becomes too acidic from poor oxygen utilization and thereby decreases in levels of bicarbonate (HCO3). Substances called buffers keep the pH of the blood from varying over too wide a range. Because carbon dioxide is one of the primary waste products produced by all living cells, bicarbonates, or alkaline compounds, are required when the cell exchanges oxygen and carbon dioxide. Without enough bicarbonate, the waste build up of carbon dioxide in the tissues would cause your body to suffocate and this would be a perfect breeding ground for anaerobic cancer cells.

Alkaline water can help regulate your body's pH and get you back on track.
