What's An "Acid pH"?
An acid pH, or "acidosis," is the term used to describe the

If I Have An "Acid pH"?
By testing your pH with Växa's 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

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.
