How Do I Know If I Have An "Acidic pH"?
By testing your pH with Växa's Litmus Paper / Medical pH-Test Strips, you can determine quickly and easily, in the privacy of your own home, what your urine pH is. Växa's Medical pH Test Strips determine your urinary pH, which is generally a good indicator of how acid or base your total body pH is. When urinary pH is continuously between 6.5 in the a.m. and 7.5 by evening, you're functioning in a healthy range.

What's An "Acidic pH"?
An acidic pH, or "acidosis," is the term used to describe the imbalanced acidic condition of all our body fluids. Virtually all cellular functions of the body are sensitive to the pH of their fluids. If the pH deviates too far to the acid side, cells become poisoned in their own toxic acidic wastes and die.
Which Foods Are "Acid-Forming" And Which Ones Are "Base-Forming"?
Most high protein foods (such as meat, fish, poultry and eggs), nearly all carbohydrates (including grains, breads, pastas) and fats are "acid-forming." And most fruits and vegetables are "base-forming." Although citrus fruits, such as oranges and grapefruit, contain organic acids and may have an acid taste, they are not acid forming when metabolized, leaving no acidic residue. Similarly, Free-Form Amino Acids are not acid-forming, but instead offer unique buffering capabilities to the body.
How Do I Get Rid Of An "Acidic-pH"?
Watching your diet can help, especially by increasing the number of fruits and vegetables you eat while decreasing the amounts of acid-forming foods consumed. But an easier way is to take Växa's Buffer-pH+ daily to help the body alkalize your system while continuing to enjoy the foods you prefer!
