Making Your Urine More Alkaline Naturally
This chart is for those trying to "adjust" their urine pH. The pH, scale is from 0 to 14, with numbers below 7 acidic and, numbers above 7 alkaline.
This chart is intended only as a general guide to alkalizing and, acidifying foods. The effect of some foods may differ for some people – it depends to an extent on the enzymes that your particular set of gut bacteria produce – so it’s worth testing your urine PH a few times over a couple of days if you suspect that a food is having a different effect on you.
