The danger of an acidic system.
Your pH level — a measurement of the acidity or alkalinity of your body fluids — affects every cell in your body. When your pH gets out of balance (which, in our culture, almost always means becoming too acidic), you may experience low energy, fatigue, excess weight, poor digestion, aches and pains, and even more serious disorders.
In fact, since acid is naturally corrosive and inflammatory, too much of it can have a negative impact on your bones1, 2 your joints,3 and your gastro-intestinal tract.4
Plus, an acidic environment makes the perfect breeding ground for microforms, which can further compromise your health.
Why you’re not so different from a fish.
To understand exactly how important pH is, let’s look at the analogy of a fish tank.
If you decide to set up an aquarium, and you go to your local pet store to pick out some fish, the salesperson — if they’re any good — will tell you exactly what to do to take care of your fish. One of the things they’ll stress is that you need to test the pH of the water in your aquarium once a week.
Why? Because fish require a certain water pH to be healthy: usually between 6.5 - 7.5. (A pH of 7.0 is considered neutral.) They can tolerate a wider range, but they won’t thrive. In fact, if the pH of their water dips too low, and enters into the acidic zone, your fish will experience a chronic stress response. If it drops below 4.0, they will die.
Your cells are not so very different from fish, and your body fluids are not so very different from aquarium water. Since the human body is 75 percent water, your cells are basically “swimming” in body fluids. They love it when the pH of those fluids is around 7.40. Like fish, your cells will tolerate a wider range, but they won’t thrive. Like fish, they become stressed by living in an acidic environment. And like fish, if the pH of your body fluids drops too low, your cells will die.
If you’ve tested your pH with the pHion Diagnostic pH Test Strips and you find that you are Acidic, it’s a good idea to get rid of the strong acids in your system by taking pHion Acid Drainage. If you find that you are in the Very Acidic, it’s crucial. Test your pH.
The herbal extracts in pHion Acid Drainage have two main actions: they act as diuretics and diaphoretics.
Diuretics increase the rate at which your body excretes urine. Extra urinary output means that your kidneys are better able to flush out acids from your system.
Diaphoretics stimulate increased perspiration. Many toxins leave the body through the skin, so extra sweat means better acid removal.
The following herbs featured in pHion Acid Drainage act in both ways to drain acids from your system and restore pH balance:
Black Currant Fruit Extract: diuretic and diaphoretic 5, 6, 7
Linden Flower Extract: diuretic and diaphoretic 8, 9
Elder Flowers Extract: diuretic and diaphoretic 10, 11, 12, 13
Burdock Root Extract: diuretic and diaphoretic 14, 15, 16
By amping up your kidneys’ and skin’s ability to eliminate strong acids, pHion Acid Drainage reduces your acid load and helps restore pH balance.

Hi, Yes, this product will help in lowing the levels of acid in the body.
Hello, When your body's buffering system isn't working properly, it will attempt
to keep excess acids away from your blood by reverting to less optimal
tactics. The first tactic is to steal alkaline minerals out of your bones or
muscles (calcium, magnesium) to buffer or neutralize these acids. The
second tactic is to simply store them deep into your tissues. If you’ve ever
wondered how somebody could get gout (uric acid) in their toe… this is
how. This is the process of how your body becomes too acidic - by virtue
of acids building up in the tissues and fluids of your body. Keep in mind
that these excess acids damage all of the cells that they come in contact
with. While these secondary tactics serve to keep your body functioning
in the short term by protecting your blood pH, they are by no means
optimal in the long term.
We strongly suggest that you discuss these types of questions with your personal physician, who should be able to give you the best advice for your specific situation.
