Q: How do the pH test strips work?
A: The test can be done with saliva or urine:

  • A saliva test should be done at least two hours after eating or drinking, or first thing in the morning. Drop some fresh saliva in a spoon (see included instruction sheet for detailed descriptions), and dip the pH test strip into the saliva. Shake off access.
  • When testing urine, do not put pH test strip in the stream of urine, since it may wash the active chemical substances from the strip. Only two or three drops of urine are required on the pH test strip.
  • The test strip color changes must be matched with the pH scale color chart within about 15 seconds.

Q: Are there factors that may influence the readings?
A: Alkaline forming foods or good alkaline water can cause a natural cleansing, spilling acid waste into the urine and give a low pH reading that is not indicative of the true state of alkaline/acid balance. As long as this cleansing is taking place the reading of the urine on the pH test strips may be low.
