As you may recall from your high school chemistry class, pH stands for “potential of hydrogen.” Simply put, it’s a measure of the relative acidity and alkalinity of a solution.
Without getting too scientific, here’s what pH means for you and your body:
The pH scale goes from 0 (acid) to 14 (alkaline), with 7.0 as neutral. There is a vast range of normal pH levels in the body, depending on which fluid you measure. We recommend measuring pH via urinalysis for its accuracy, convenience and low cost to perform and analyze. For the SHAPE Program, it is also the most diagnostic for determining how you are responding to the program.
The optimal range for urine pH is 6.40-6.80 (most urinalysis strips test in increments of 0.5, so 6.5 would be optimal). This is where your body functions at its best.
What happens if your pH level is outside the optimal range?
Nine out of ten patients with imbalanced pH are acidic (their urine pH tests below 6.40). Acidity can manifest in a variety of ways:
- Increased pain, muscle issues
- Less tranquility
- Sleep problems
- Decreased bone density, leading to osteoporosis
- Water retention (inability to remove rings at the end of the day, difficulty making a fist after a walk, sock impressions around the ankles, inability to lose weight)
- Excess mucus production (increased congestion in the nose, sinuses and throat)
- Digestive complaints, such as gas and bloating
- Fibromyalgia symptoms, such as body aches, stiffness, headaches and fatigue
Adding minerals to your diet is one of the best ways to improve body pH, but it can be challenging to get enough minerals through diet alone. Fruits and vegetables have fewer nutrients than they did many years ago, so it is often necessary to add mineral supplements. Our pH Concentrated Minerals give you a daily mineral boost and are designed to promote healthy pH levels.
What makes pH Concentrated Minerals different from other mineral supplements?
pH Concentrated Minerals are an all-natural trace minerals supplement. The minerals in pH Concentrated Minerals are naturally-derived and harvested through solar evaporation. Our formula does not rely on chemical or mechanical separation, unlike many lab-created liquid mineral formulas. Some manufacturers artificially pump up the potassium so that it will quickly elevate the pH level of water, but this won’t necessarily elevate pH in the human body. The minerals in pH Concentrated Minerals are concentrated in natural human proportions in water-soluble ionic form so they can be absorbed efficiently and effectively. pH Concentrated Minerals are also vegan, gluten-free and kosher-certified.
How do I use pH Concentrated Minerals?
Our pH Concentrated Minerals mineral drops are highly concentrated, so you should always add them to water. The recommended use is 3-4 drops per 8-10 oz. of water. Start with 20 drops daily and work up to 40 drops or until benefits are realized.
What does pH Concentrated Minerals taste like?
Minerals (particularly magnesium) have a bitter, sour or alkaline taste, but your taste buds will adjust. We find that pH Concentrated Minerals adds a slight mineral or lemony flavor to water.
How quickly can I expect results?
Like most natural remedies, pH Concentrated Minerals is not a quick fix. You will experience the best results with consistent and proper use.
Try pH Concentrated Minerals for:
- Water retention
- Kidney stones
- Cardiovascular problems
- Anxiety, irritability and stress
- Muscle cramping
- Restless leg syndrome
- Bone and joint problems
- Electrolyte imbalance
- Enhanced energy and stamina
