Alkalete is one of our most popular products because it helps promote a healthy body pH. Today, we’re going to talk about why that’s important for your health!
What is pH?
Let’s start by looking at what pH actually is. pH, which stands for power of hydrogen or potential of hydrogen, is a way of measuring the hydrogen ion concentration of a solution. Essentially, pH measures how acidic or how alkaline something is using a scale from 0-14.
On the pH scale, 7 is neutral. A pH above 7 is called alkaline or basic, and a pH below 7 is acidic. It may seem obvious that extremely acidic compounds would be dangerous for human health, but extremely alkaline solutions are also harmful to humans. For example, battery acid is very acidic, and liquid drain cleaner is very alkaline. They’re on opposite ends of the scale, but both are dangerous for human health. The closer you get to the neutral pH of seven, the safer compounds are for you.
Why pH is Important
Your blood is naturally slightly alkaline, with a pH between 7.35 and 7.45. It’s critical that your blood stays within this range, so your body regulates it for you regardless of lifestyle choices that you make. Your body pH, on the other hand, is susceptible to fluctuations due to your lifestyle, whether it’s the food you eat, your stress levels, or the time you spend being physically active.
Your body functions at its best when you have a healthy body pH, but the typical western diet and lifestyle can make that a challenge. Fortunately, you can use Alkalete to promote a healthy body pH! Alkalete contains mineral salts of calcium, potassium, and magnesium, which have been shown to help reduce excess dietary acidic load. These nutrients are gradually released through a patented time-release delivery system, which improves nutrient availability. It’s the perfect way to promote a healthy body pH so you can take your health to the next level!
Your body pH is an important part of your overall wellbeing, and Alkalete is an ideal way to support a healthy balance. For more tips for working toward optimal health, subscribe to the blog and check out our Facebook page!
