What are PH Tester
The scale that is used for measuring the pH, or hydrogen ion concentration is from 0 to 14, with 7 being the neutral point. Below 7 is acidic; above 7 is alkaline. The optimal ph of the body's fluids, such as the blood is 7.4, slightly alkaline. If deviated from this range, the bodies activity is no longer optimal and the metabolism is out of balance as the body will begin to store toxins in fat and move around acidic material to keep the blood PH in balance. The pH of the body is largely influenced by metabolic byproducts and our diet. Thus, pH is directly affected by the various categories of food that we eat and the internal mechanisms involved in their processing. Some foods that are acid in their composition can become alkalizing following metabolizing by the body, such as lemons. Accordingly, it is to become more aware of the impact that various foods and our eating habits have on the internal environment of the body.
