What is pH Monitor?

This test indicates the acid or alkaline content of urine (pH) by measuring the concentration of hydrogen ions. On a scale of 1-10, 7 represents neutrality, lower numbers indicate increasing acidity and higher numbers increasing alkalinity. Each unit of change represents a tenfold change i acidity or alkalinity. The pH of urine can range from an extremely unhealthy low of 4.5 to a high of 8.5.

Why Monitor pH Levels?

Persistent alkaline urine (pH7-8) may be indicative of urinary tract infection, vegetarian diet, alkalosis, pyloric stenosis/obstruction, vomiting or alkalizing drugs. Persistent acid urine (pH5-7) may be indicative of gout, fever, phenacetin intake or predisposition to kidney stones. In a pH balanced body, urine is slightly acid in the morning (after fasting), with a pH range of 6.5-7.0, generally becoming more alkaline, pH=7.5=8.0 by evening as the body digests food and releases electrolytes.

not so good

Posted by Reviewer1352023 on Sep 17, 2008

they hardly changed color. it was hard to tell the actual color because they never totally matched the chart on the bottle. i also thought that it measured from lower that 5, but i think it starts at 5.5 and ends at 7.5.

Inferior product

Posted by Reviewer2286487 on Jan 23, 2007

I have used Alka-Live pH strips but wanted to try a product available at iherb. The Testmedica strips are almost useless with a readable range that is severely limited. Also, the packaging is a joke - diificult to extract from the bottle.

Don't buy it

Posted by Reviewer2120805 on May 11, 2009

6 out of 7 strips did not change color. This is a very poor product.

Excellent Product

Posted by Reviewer2255328 on May 20, 2007

I originally bought this product for almost twice the price at a health food store. I love how easy it is to both use and read. Seems to be accurate in showing whether my urine is acid or alkaline for the day.
