pH is measured on a scale of 0 to 14, with seven being neutral The pH scale shows how acidic or alkaline a tissue or solution is. Lower pH numbers are found in solutions where there is high acidity, and high pH numbers are present when there is greater alkalinity–more basic.
The pH of the urine can vary from 4.0 (very acidic or “acidosis”) to 8.0 (very alkaline), and is based on how acid or alkaline the extracellular fluids are in your body.1 The standard American diet, pharmaceutical drugs, environmental toxicants, obesity and other common lifestyle issues are all associated with metabolic acidosis.(2, 3) Acidic urine, a reflection of an acidic state in the body is associated with several health challenges.
The uses of alkalinizing agents, such as those present in pH-Basic have been shown to alkalinize the urine and restore balance to the acid-base levels in the body.*
pH-Basic is formulated to maintain the body’s optimal pH level using a synergistic blend of enzymes, nutrients and botanicals.* pH-Basic is designed to bypass the acidic environment of the stomach and deliver nutrients directly to the small intestine.* By optimizing the pH of the small intestine rather than neutralizing stomach acid, systemic pH balance is achieved.*
pH-Basic contains Thera-blend™ enzymes. Thera-blend is an exclusive process that combines multiple strains of enzymes that work at specific pH levels, resulting in superior performance in the body.*
