Vivoo’s pH box measures the acidity and alkalinity of your urine – which, in turn, is an indicator of your dietary acid-base load (i.e., the balance of acid- versus alkaline-inducing foods), along with your intake of fruits, vegetables, and meat. 

Urine pH

Urine, like other body fluids, can be acidic or alkaline. Acidic substances have a pH of less than 7, while alkaline substances have a higher pH. Urine is typically slightly acidic. It has a pH of around 6-7, but the exact pH value can range from 4.5 to 8. Factors like your diet, health conditions, and medications can affect urine pH. The primary way your body maintains an optimal acid-base balance is by excreting excess alkalinity or acidity through the urine. Many things can increase your urine pH level, including UTIs, vomiting, and an excessive intake of vegetables and fruits. On the other hand, your urine pH level can drop (i.e., become acidic) in cases of dehydration, diarrhea, and an excessive intake of protein, grains, and sugary foods.

Diet’s Effect on Urine pH 

The food you eat can change the pH value of your body. But it’s worth noting that this doesn’t apply to your blood pH level. That’s because the human body is equipped with a powerful compensatory mechanism designed to maintain a constant blood pH level. It does so by excreting any excess acid from the body through expiration (i.e., breathing) and urine. The exact value ranges anywhere between 7.35 to 7.45. Be mindful that even a slight decrease or increase in blood pH can be dangerous. 

There’s also a “set” range for urine pH level – with the normal range being 4.5 to 8 and the optimal level being around 6 to 7. A neutral pH value is 7. Any number below will be considered acidic. Conversely, a urine pH level higher than 7 will be considered alkaline. As mentioned earlier, your urine pH level can fluctuate because your kidneys help filter acid and alkaline compounds in the blood and remove them through the excretion of urine. This is done to maintain your blood pH level. 

Accordingly, your urine pH level provides valuable insights into how your diet is affecting your body – along with how well your kidneys are working. In general, your diet (i.e., the dietary acid-base load) is the primary factor that affects your urine pH value. For instance: foods rich in protein, such as meat, cheese, and eggs, are likely to increase acid production in the body (which then decreases your urine pH level). On the contrary, fruits and vegetables do the opposite; they’re typically known to increase the production of alkaline compounds in the body (in turn, increasing your urine pH level). Note that the term describing a food’s capacity for acid or base production is called “potential renal acid load” (PRAL). Other factors affecting your urine pH level include certain drugs and health conditions. 

Possible Results 

Vivoo measures your urine pH level. This tells you whether your urine is acidic, alkaline, or optimal. Here’s how you could interpret the results: 

Score: 8/10, 5/10, Label: Acidic, Value: 6 and 5 pH

What a low urine pH level means

A low urine pH level (pH level below 7) indicates that your urine is acidic. There are many reasons for this – including dehydration, diarrhea, and diabetic ketoacidosis. Other situations that could cause your urine pH level to decrease are also:

  • DM (Diabetes)
  • High protein diet
  • Taking acidic drugs
  • Excessive alcohol use
  • Starvation
  • Eating a diet high  in ​​protein, grains, and processed foods, especially sugar

acidic pH

The consumption of high acid diets causes metabolic acidosis, which, in turn, has been associated with the development of chronic diseases such as diabetes, hypertension, chronic kidney disease, and non-alcoholic fatty liver.

Suppose your urine pH level is indeed overly acidic. In that case, Vivoo will suggest low-PRAL (i.e., alkaline-promoting) foods you could eat that’ll help you increase your urine pH level – helping you avoid the various health risks mentioned above. 

Score: 10/10, Label:Optimal, Value: 7 pH

An optimal urine pH level indicates that your urine pH level is within the healthy range (and that you should maintain it). 

Why do you need to balance your urine pH level?

There’s a specific pH level at which your body (i.e., its systems and organs) functions at its best. For instance, your digestive and excretory systems work best in alkaline conditions. So, if your body’s pH level rises or falls beyond this optimal value, you’d become susceptible to various diseases. For this reason, some people change their eating habits to balance the urine’s pH values. Doing this can help balance the body’s pH value.

Score: 6/10, 3/10 Label: Alkaline, Value: 8 and 9 pH

What does a high pH in the urine mean :

A urine pH value above 7  indicates that your urine is alkaline. Alkaline urine can result from abnormal kidney function and vomiting. 

Other causes of a high urine pH level also include:

  • Urinary tract infection
  • Kidney failure
  • A diet high in vegetables and fruits, but low in protein and grains
  • Excessive intake of alkaline-forming substances

    1. Hi Carole, thank you for providing this amazing feedback. I have forwarded the feedback to our IT department. We’re so glad to be part of your wellness journey!

  4. After how long of eating a healthier diet should I expect my ph levels to go down?

    1. Hi Kaley, thank you for your interest in Vivoo. Urine pH changes instantaneously according to your diet. You can check to see improvements in your next test by continuing to eat healthy with the help of the advice that is provided by Vivoo.

  5. Hi Zoe, thank you for your interest in Vivoo. It is normal for the urine to be slightly acidic. Bicarbonate may help to neutralize the urine but excessive consumption also poses serious health risks. If your urine is too acidic, it will be a more healthy and natural way to consume alkalizing foods.
