The term “pH” stands for the “power of hydrogen.” The “H” is capitalized in the standard abbreviation, as it represents the chemical symbol for the hydrogen element.
PH is a measure of the acidity or alkalinity of a solution. The scale ranges from 1 (very acidic) to
14 (very alkaline.) The pH scale is a logarithmic scale, meaning that water with a pH of 8 is 10 times more alkaline than 7 pH, neutral, water. Water measuring pH 9 is 100 times more alkaline than neutral water, etc.
PH is easy to measure with test strips, and I offer free pH test kits so that you can easily measure the pH of anything from the soda you drink to your own saliva.
