What pH Is and Why It Matters

pH2O, one of the new products we launched at Ignite, is a great way to promote a healthy body pH. But what is pH, and why does it matter? Let’s jump into it!

What is pH?

pH is short for potential of hydrogen or power of hydrogen. It’s a way of measuring the hydrogen ion concentration of a solution. Basically, pH signifies how acidic or alkaline a solution is, using a scale from 0-14. On the pH scale, 7 is neutral. A pH above 7 is called alkaline or basic, and a pH below 7 is acidic.

It may seem obvious that extremely acidic compounds would be dangerous for human health, but extremely alkaline solutions are also harmful to humans. For example, battery acid is very acidic, and liquid drain cleaner is very alkaline. They’re on opposite ends of the scale, but both are dangerous for human health. It’s important to be aware of how acidic or alkaline things are and try to avoid things at either end of the spectrum.

Why It Matters

Your blood is naturally slightly alkaline, with a pH between 7.35 and 7.45. It’s critical that your blood stays within this range, so your body regulates it for you regardless of lifestyle choices that you make. Your body pH, on the other hand, is susceptible to fluctuations due to your lifestyle, whether it’s the food you eat, your stress levels, or the time you spend being physically active.

Your body functions at its best when you have a healthy body pH, but the typical western diet and lifestyle can make that a challenge. At Yoli, we offer a variety of products that will help you promote a healthy body pH!
