80 pH Test Strips
pH test strips are ideal to check the pH of both urine and saliva so as to give you an indication of the pH of your body and be able to monitor changes as you move to a better body acid alkaline balance through dietary and lifestyle changes.
Our pH test strips are dual pad, easy to read and give accurate results. They are much better to use than pH papers. The pH test strips are calibrated from pH 4.5 to pH9.0. They give you a result within 10 seconds of dipping the pH test strip in urine or saliva. Each pack contains 80 strips.
Saliva pH Test
Just wet the pH test strip with saliva approx 2 hours after a meal and match it against the colour chart. This will give you a reflection of the state of your health. Although saliva is more acidic than blood it gives a fair indicator of your state of health. It tells you what your body retains. Salivary pH is understood to be a good indicator of your extracellular fluids and your alkaline mineral reserves. The optimal pH of saliva is 6.5 to 7.0. A reading lower than 6.5 means you have insufficient alkaline reserves. After meals the saliva should rise to 7.8 or even higher. If there is no increase it implies that the body has a deficiency in alkaline minerals particularly calcium and magnesium. If your saliva pH deviates from the ideal range for an extended period of time then this will likely lead to illness.
Urinary pH test
Your urine pH is an indication of how well your body is working to maintain a proper pH of your blood. By taking urine samples you can get a fairly accurate picture of your body pH as our kidneys filter out the buffer salts of pH regulation. Your pH test strips can give an estimate as to blood pH based on what your body is eliminating. Your urine pH can vary from pH4.0 to pH 9.0, however the ideal range is between 6.5 and 7.0. Note blood pH should be 7.36. An ideal time to check urine pH is first thing in the morning taking readings from first and second urination and averaging these figures.
To Test Urine:
Test the first and second urine of the day and record the average reading. To test, briefly place the pH strip in the urine stream, shake the excess fluid and wait 15 seconds to read your pH.
To Test Saliva
Wait two hours after eating. Spit saliva into spoon, dip the pH strip into the fluid and wait 15 seconds to read your pH.
Once you have recorded your results we recommend you consult with a trained practitioner.
