What Does "pH" Stand For and How is it Measured?
The term pH stands for "potential hydrogen" and measures hydrogen high in concentration of a solution. It is a measure of the relative acidity or alkalinity of a solution. the pH level indicates the body's acid/alkaline balance and tells the health of an individual.
The scale runs from zero to 14. Zero is totally acidic and 14 is totally alkaline. The middle of the scale, at 7, is neutral. Quality water has a pH of 7.
An ideal range for pH should be 6.2 to 7.4, typically fluctuating as follows:
- 6.2 to 7.0 at 7:00 a.m.
- 6.6 to 7.2 at 3:00 p.m.
- 7.0 to 7.4 at 9:00 p.m.
