Ideally our diet should be composed of about 35% acid forming foods and 65% alkaline forming foods. The majority of fruit and vegetables leave an alkalizing effect. Most grains are somewhat acid forming as are protein foods (meat). Refined sugar is acid forming whilst natural sea salt is not. While this is the ideal it is not often the case. And remember, we live amongst acid toxins daily, even if we donít eat them!
pH is the abbreviation for potential hydrogen. The pH range is from 0-14, with 7 being neutral. Above 7 is alkaline and below 7 is acidic. The higher the pH reading, the more alkaline and oxygen rich the fluid is. The lower the pH reading, the more acidic and oxygen deprived the fluid is.
The internal environment of a normal healthy body is slightly alkaline, maintaining a pH of just above.
Hydrion papers work best with buffered solutions. Unbuffered solutions should be tested with lo-ion test kits.
