pH Test Kit and pH test paper in rolls
Test your pH balance quickly and easily
The human blood stream has a pH (acid-alkaline balance) of 7.35-7.45, just slightly alkaline. (Short chemistry lesson: 7.0 is neutral, below 7 is acidic and higher than 7 is alkaline). Blood stream pH is "Mission Critical" to life, so the body will do everything possible to maintain this balance within a very narrow range.
Regardless of what is eaten, all cellular processes --- and therefor cellular waste products --- are acidic. The kidneys are designed to eliminate excess acid, and the urine pH is normally slightly acidic, reflecting this acid elimination.
Some foods create more acid than others. This, plus stress, drugs and disease, can contribute more acid to the system. Because the bloodstream MUST remain alkaline, the body will do everything possible to neutralize this excess acid. One of the primary "buffer systems" of the body is to pull calcium and magnesium out of bone to neutralize excess acid. This can lead to osteoporosis, stone formation and more. The body also uses potassium to neutralize acid.
Overall, it is believed by some (myself included) that this "Mild Metabolic Acidosis" (MMA) contributes to disease, aging and a host of diseases. Since the kidney releases excess acid via the urine, measuring urine pH (acid) is one way to evaluate for excess acidity.
This test kit can be used to evaluate urine pH. I recommend a pH of between 6.5-7.2. This is slightly different than the kit's instructions. Also, after you use the potassium bicarb packets to adjust pH, I recommend using potassium citrate for ongoing pH maintenance. Potassium citrate has more research behind it, although either substance will probably work just fine to normalize pH.
This kit contains:
- 3 - single serving packets of alkalinizing beverage powder
- 10 - pH test strips
- 1 - pH test strip color chart
- full instructions and a pH record chart
- even a pencil to record your results with!

For Ongoing Testing Dr. Myatt Recommends:
This pH Paper provides excellent color separation in both the acid range (below pH 7) and the alkali range (above pH 7). Commonly used to test urine and saliva, it offers an easy to read, single color match at every .2 to .3 interval from pH 5.5-8.0.
The color chart has pH matches as shown in the image at right.
Each roll provides for approximately 100 tests.
