           FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS


1. Why do I need to check my pH? 

Your body requires a certain pH just to survive and prefers an alkaline pH for optimal health. In fact, the pH of the blood MUST be maintained at 7.35-7.45. Any sustained blood pH lower than 7.25 is not compatible with life (death). pHAlo™ is designed to aid the body systems in protecting the blood. Checking the pH of the urine or saliva simply gives you an idea of how your body is handling the constant threat of too much acid in your body.

2. I am a vegan and chose not to ingest anything made from an animal by-product like gelatin capsules. Are your capsules vegetarian? I notice you list them as Hypromellose now instead of vegetable capsules.

Hypromellose is a plant-based dietary fibre. HPMC is a plant based product, a purified form of cellulose, obtained from wood pulp. The FDA changed the labeling regulations to require the veggie caps to be listed as: hydroxypropyl methylcellulose or Hypromellose.

3. Why are the capsules so big?

Each capsule is packed full of ingredients that are designed to alkalize the body, and yes, we could have put them in smaller capsules and increase the number of capsules per day, but many people have trouble remembering to take even 4 capsules. 

4.  Can I check my saliva versus urine? Which one is better?

The pH of both saliva and urine can be influenced by eating or drinking at and around the time the pH is checked. Urine can be influenced by foods or liquids that were consumed many hours before. For this reason, it is the opinion of the developer of pHAlo™ an unstimulated saliva is the better indicator of the two methods. If you choose to check your body pH via urine analysis then the first morning urine is best to use. 

5. Can pregnant women take it?

pHAlo™ is typically safe for all adults. Pregnant women can take pHALo™, but should consult with their physician. For pregnant women who struggle with acid indigestion and do not want to take medication, pHALo™ is an excellent natural alternative.

6. Some people take more than 4 capsules per day. Can I take more than 4 capsules per day and why?

Taking 4 capsules of pHALo™ a day is the recommended dosage for someone wanting to maintain a proper pH of 7.0 or above. Some people will find it necessary to take more due to an abundance of acid in their diet or the body's inability to get rid of the excess. Taking more is fine to maintain a pH between 7.0-7.5. Suggested use: 2 capsules 2-3 times daily. Find out what works for you by testing your pH frequently with the free testing strips that are included.

7. Why are sodas so bad for me? Do I have to change my diet?

Drinking a soda is introducing a flood of harmful acid into the body. In fact, some sodas have a pH of 1.8, which is very, very acidic. Eliminating soda from the diet is recommended for anyone wanting to maintain an alkaline pH. For the sake of reason, if your current diet is making you acidic, it is a good idea to make some changes. If you are resistant to changing your diet, taking more than the recommended dose of pHALo may be necessary to maintain a pH greater than 7.0.

8. My pH is not changing quickly. Why?

If you are having trouble seeing your pH become alkaline, see question 5 & 6. You may need to identify what food or lifestyle choices that you need to modify to obtain a healthy pH. Many people are overly stressed and stress will drive your pH down into the acidic range.

9. Does it really work?

The pH test strips are included in every purchase of pHALo  so that you can see for yourself that pHALo™ works to raise the pH of the body. Some people may need to take more than the recommended dose to see a great change. However, one must bear in mind that a change of even 0.5 is very significant since pH is measured on a logarithmic scale ( 10x change ).

10. Is it FDA approved?

pHALo™ is a food based supplement and does not fall under the category of a drug. The FDA does not evaluate food based supplements

11. Does it interact with other medication? Can I take it with my Doctor prescribed medication?

Raising your pH may interact with some medications. Many diabetics find that less insulin is required to lower blood sugar while taking pHALo™ . It is always a good idea to monitor the effectiveness of your medications when raising your pH. Check with your Physician if you are on any prescribed medications. Suggested use: Take 1 hour before or 1 hour after taking prescribed medication. Do not take at the same time as prescribed medication. May be taken along with other supplements. 

12. Are there any side effects?

pHALo™ is a natural product and not a medication. There are no known side effects currently associated with this product.

13. How long does it take to see results?

While everyone is different, most people see results within the first week while some may not see results for up to a month.

TESTING YOUR BODY pH

Testing strips are included with every purchase of pHAlo™

The first step in establishing an alkaline environment is to test your current body pH balance, A good approximation of tissue pH is easily obtained by testing the pH of your first morning urine or unstimulated saliva.

A pH reading of 7.25-7.5 is perfect. A pH reading of 6.5 is acidic and below 6.0 is very acidic. The lower the number, the more acidic your condition. There are instructions within each test strip package for your use.

The ideal reading should be between 7.25 and 7.5.

Remember, your pH indicates your reserve of alkaline minerals. It can take time to build up your reserves. The average time for movement towards the ideal alkaline measurement is 4 to 7 days with the daily use of pHAlo™

Small changes in pH create Dramatic Changes within your body!

Remember that pH measurement is on a logarithmic scale. Meaning that a pH change from 6.0 to 7.0 is a ten (10) times change. A pH change from 5.0 to 7.0 is a one hundred (100) times change!

You do not have to measure your pH every day, but it is an excellent idea to keep some record of your test results over time. There are 10 test strips included with every bottle so you can check your pH every 3 days to monitor your progress.

You may need to take more than 4 capsules daily especially if your body is overly acidic.

Heartburn
 

pHAlo™ vs. Heartburn 

Acid reflux is a digestive condition where the stomach acid flows from the stomach back into the esophagus. This backwash of acid can irritate your esophagus and cause pain, i.e. Heartburn

Heartburn, also referred to as acid reflux, is an uncomfortable, painful, or burning feeling in your chest or throat that may begin after a meal and last a few minutes to many hours. Other symptoms may include a hot, sour, or acid fluid felt in the back of your throat, as well as a cough, sore throat, or hoarse voice.

If you experience heartburn, you know that it's more than just uncomfortable or painful----it can affect your daily life! It can disrupt your sleep, productivity at work, and social occasions.

It is important not to ignore your symptoms!

Even a small amount of stomach acid can cause significant pain or discomfort. If left untreated, the stomach acid that causes heartburn can damage your esophagus or even teeth.

Multichannel impedance pH monitoring has shown that weakly acid refluxes are able to generate heartburn. A low pH of weakly acidic reflux represents a determinant factor in heartburn.

Persistent heartburn symptoms may be a sign of a more serious underlying condition.

Gastroesophageal Reflux Disease ( GERD ) is a condition which develops when the reflux of stomach contents causes troublesome symptoms and/or complications. Heartburn and regurgitation are the typical symptoms of GERD.

Nonerosive Reflux Disease ( NERD ) is a common condition and the most common sub-category of GERD. NERD includes people with negative endoscopy but abnormal esophageal acid exposure and/or positive reflux- symptoms association analysis ( hypersensitive esophagus ). People with heartburn who do not have any type of reflux underlying their symptoms ( functional heartburn ) must be excluded from the category of GERD.

Gastro-oesophageal Reflux Disease ( GORD ) develops when reflux of gastric content causes more extreme symptoms or complications. Like GERD, the main symptoms are heartburn and acid regurgitation. Complications include oesophagitis, stricture, Barrett's oesophagus and oesophageal adenocarcinoma. GORD is associated with lifestyle factors, mainly obesity.

When deciding how to treat your heartburn symptoms, there are many options to consider. Occasional and frequent heartburn is relatively common and can be managed with lifestyle changes as well as with antacids.

The key to pHAlo's ability to treat acid reflux lies in the ingredients within each capsule.

pHAlo™ contains powerful antacid buffers, minerals and Aloe Vera to weaken stomach acid or even neutralize it's effects on the stomach lining and esophagus.

There are several lifestyle changes that you can make to help reduce or avoid the symptoms of heartburn including, maintaining a healthy weight, not smoking, and/or practicing relaxation techniques. Tobacco smoking and alcohol consumption can reduce the lower oesophageal shincter pressure, facilitationg reflux. In addition, tobacco smoking reduces the production of saliva rich bicarbonate, which is important for buffering and clearance of acid in the oesophagus. Alcohol also has a direct noxious effect on the oesophagus mucosa, which predisposes to acid injury.

pHAlois a safe alternative to other forms of treatment for heartburn and acid reflux.

Combining pHAlo™ with lifestyle and diet alterations can significantly improve your daily life.
