Vivoo pH Box

Vivoo’s pH box measures urine’s acidity and alkalinity level, which is an indicator of dietary acid-base load as well as fruit, vegetable, and meat intakes.

What is acidic pH and alkaline pH?

pH is a measure of the acidity or alkalinity of water-based fluid. Although blood pH is usually in a tight range between 7.35 and 7.45, every fluid in the body has a unique pH range. The stomach has the highest acidity (pH of 1.35 to 3.5) to aid in digestion and protect against opportunistic microbial organisms. The skin and the vagina are quite acidic as well (pH 4–6.5) to provide an acid mantle as a protective barrier to the environment against microbial overgrowth. Saliva normally has a pH range of 6.2-7.6, which prevents bad bacteria from growing and neutralizes acids in foods. Maintaining the pH values of different organs is critical for their function and the body’s pH balance. 

 


The human body has an amazing ability to maintain a steady pH in the blood due to very well-designed compensatory mechanisms. Indeed, it is not possible to change blood pH significantly through the diet; excess acidity is continuously removed from the body through the breath and urine to balance pH. However, even a slight increase or decrease in blood pH can be dangerous. 

Urine also has a unique pH range. The normal range for urine pH is between 4.5 and 8. A neutral pH is 7 with any number below that considered acidic. A urine pH above 7 is alkaline. The kidneys help keep the blood pH by filtering acids and alkaline compounds from the blood and releasing them into the urine.

Why Urine pH is Important? 

Urine pH carries valuable information about how your diet is affecting your body and how effectively your kidneys are working. 

In general, diet is the major factor that determines the pH. Besides, certain drugs and diseases can also have an effect.

Although more precise methods exist for the measurement of acid-base balance, urine pH is a reflection of this balance. In other words, the dietary acid-base load which is calculated from the acidity and alkalinity of foods consumed affects urine pH. Generally, a more alkaline diet (low dietary acid load), with a high fruit and vegetable intake and lower consumption of meat, is associated with a more alkaline pH. On the other hand, the high consumption of protein-containing foods, such as meats, cereals, and dairy foods, along with a low fruit and vegetable intake, forms high dietary acid load, thereby, a high acidic pH.

        Hi, my pH is 8.0/10. The app says 8 is acidic but I thought the higher the number the better. Can someone help me to understand?

    My test in March gave me a score of 2 – acidic. Today I scored 5 – acidic. What would that correspond to on the pH scale? I don’t know how much it has improved or how much better it needs to get, and even though it’s helpful as is, it would be nice to know the actual level.

    Sorry to sound thick but is 3 not acidic rather than alkaline or am I not understanding the measurements properly?

    I wish there was the option to email my results to myself so I could read and compare them. When scrolling on my phone it’s difficult to really absorb and compare what’s being told to me in order to make improvements. Thanks for any help!

    This is very convinient. If 10 vivoo corresponds to 6.5 – 7 pH, how do other vivoo pH levels correspond to the pH scale?

      Hi Anna, thank you for your question. Vivoo does not show the actual pH value, it shows its status with a score out of 10. If you let us know your Vivoo score about pH, we will help you to determine your actual pH value.

    My value is 5 on your scale of acid/base balance. I practice keto and use ACV daily in my water. Should I be concerned about this value?

      Hi Tim, thank you for your question. Sometimes urine may contain leukocytes. A leukocyte is a white blood cell (WBC) that is essential for the immune system’s defense against infections. Normally, they do not occur in large numbers in the urine. Higher levels of leukocytes in urine may indicate that your body is trying to fight off an infection somewhere in the urinary tract.

      Vivoo strips detect nitrites and leukocytes in urine to measure the possibility of a UTI. Also, if you have any risk of a UTI, the Vivoo application gives you personalized hygiene and nutritional advice to ward off infection.

    Can bicarbonate of soda help lower acid in urine? My urine seems to be chronically acidic even though I avoid acidic foods and drink.

      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.

    I have got the score 8/10 but i don’t know how high is my PH? Is 10 the most acid ph? I don’t understand the logic. It would be great to have also the PH. Thanks

    Hi, thank you for your question. Vivoo does not show the actual pH value, it shows its status with a score out of 10. If your score is 10, the actual pH value is 7. And, this value can be classified as neutral. This score means that you have a balanced urine pH.

    I got a PH level of 3 and it said It was an alkaline PH level. Isn’t 3 a more acidic level of PH? Just curious.

      Hi Hector, thank you for your question. Vivoo does not show the actual pH value, it shows its status with a score out of 10. If your score is 3, the actual pH value is 9. And, this value can be classified as alkaline. We’re so glad to be part of your wellness journey!
