We recommend to test salivary pH, and, to test frequently in the beginning.
Keep a pH diary to learn more about how your body. You'll see how you respond to certain foods, drinks, and life situations. This will help you make informed - better - decisions about food and life style.
Some individuals with reflux symptoms and chronic inflammation, surprisingly test in very alkaline ranges, pH >8 or dark blue. This would give you the false impression that all is good.
But what is measured in such a cases is the bodies response to excessive acidity and the attempt to neutralize by dumping alkaline minerals from bone and muscle reservoirs.
What is happening here is osteoporosis in progress.
Once these individuals start using AlkaPure pH, it takes over the "dumping action", the osteoporotic process stops and the underlying acidic levels of the tissues reveal themselves, usually within 1-2 days.
To Test Urine: To test, briefly place the pH strip in the urine stream, shake off the excess fluid, and wait 15 seconds to read your pH.
To Test Saliva: Test before or two hours after eating. Spit saliva into a spoon or cup, dip the pH strip into the fluid, and wait 15 seconds to read your pH.
Results: Urine is slightly acidic by nature. Try to reach PH of 6.6 to 7. Saliva is reflective of tissue. Try to reach pH of 7 to 7.4. Initially test frequently throughout the day, away from food and drink, to learn about your circadian pH rhythm and to calculate a broader average.
Replace cap immediately after taking out strip and tighten. Do not touch the test areas. Store in a cool, dry place, For in-vitro use only.
