What is pH in the human body? Some explanations to understand the rest.

The pH? It is in chemistry a simple acronym, a symbol defining the hydrogen potential in our body by simple measurement of the rate of acidity and the secondary rate of alkalinity by simple deduction but let's try to make it as simple as possible.

The human body has an individual global pH which corresponds to the hydrogen concentration  of a food, an organ. The pH can be between 0 and 14 and is measured on a single scale of acidity. Neutrality is right in the middle of this scale:  the number 7 is the correct benchmark! From 0 to 7, your pH is acidic. Beyond that, it is said to be alkaline (or basic).  This famous acid-base balance so desired  is nothing more than the harmonious synthesis of the work of absorption and digestion  as correctly as possible by the two media concerned (acid and alkaline). Quite a program then for the body which seeks at all costs to maintain the pH level of this complex body at 7.4 so that its essential functions are at their best operational level! Would the yo-yo and the trampoline invite themselves into our health journey?

In practice, this beautiful theory of pH, which is a little too mathematical, is often undermined by the very understandable accidents of everyday life: our misbehavior (alcohol, medication, stress) can no longer be counted, they add up and end up seriously disturb the mechanics of our beautiful human machine! In scientific terms, we are talking about cellular homeostasis and its permanent fight to internally maintain a good acid-base balance within our body!  It is thanks to this balance that we digest well, that we sleep deeply, that our skin renews itself at a normal rate. It is this fundamental balance for  the organism that allows our solid carcass to repair itself, systematically replacing our old cells with brand new ones! What could be better! As for our enzymes, real little hands of the body always on the alert and in motion, they work at full speed as long as they remain as long as possible.  in touch with  perfectly compatible organic pHs.

We are all living beings but none of us can suspect what is really going on in our organism: internally and silently,  a parallel and permanent life has developed since birth through the magic of the exchange of electrons. Could this curious process be a miracle? No way! On the contrary, it is superbly studied and it will remain one of the mysteries of our existence on earth! It is “in chemistry mode” that our body has organized itself to live and survive! Our biologists have given a name to this beautiful alchemy: metabolism with its two components: anabolism, alkalizing and antioxidant, which builds the body, allows the formation of muscles, bones etc... thanks to the digestion of food and which consumes also a lot of energy (he is the one who burns the calories!); conversely, at the other end of the chain, acidifying and oxidizing catabolism is there to destroy, to degrade the body in what is most negative (it is what ensures the production of waste!) . Despite appearances, these two components of our metabolism are equally essential for the body, the human body tending naturally towards a certain acidity!

So, go...for the best possible acid-base balance from the different pH levels in our bodies. And it's not a trifle among others since the body is indeed more than a million billion cells grouped into 200 very distinct types of skin cells: liver, kidneys, bones, brain, blood, both venous and arterial, breasts, your vagina and many other organs... We produce 70 million new cells every day which take over from the "old" ones: that being said, c It is mostly our food that produces it. At our own risk, dear friends!

A few ph to follow to whet your curiosity?

Masculine or feminine :
- the  saliva :  6.8, the  skin  : 7.35.
- bile: between 7.4 and 7.7.
- urine: between 5 and 8.
- venous blood: ideally 7.35, arterial blood:  ideally 7.40.
- the stomach: between 1.2 and 3, the small intestine: 6.

… and for the record, the pH of the vagina at home madam  : between 3.5 and 4.5 in its normality.

The ideal pH of your vagina?

Very important the good maintenance of your pH vagina for your health! Due to its bacterial flora, your vagina is bathed in an acid environment: lactobacilli , streptococci and many other micro-organisms secrete lactic acid: this natural acidity acts very positively on bacteria, opposes happiness to the proliferation of pathogens of all kinds and likely to trigger infections. 

This vaginal pH is called  decrease in intensity over the course of its life: relatively neutral before the first period of adolescence, its rate gradually decreases to stabilize between 3.8 and 4.5 on the reference acidity scale and this, until menopause . Subsequently, the vaginal pH becomes less and less acidic over the years. No fixing to do therefore on a supposed ideal vaginal pH! Too many parameters to take into consideration: age, stability or instability of the vaginal area, the fragility of the acid-base balance…. 

Did you know ? 

At the time of menstruation: the vaginal pH level rises to around 6, because it is under the influence of blood flowing into the vagina. This is a period conducive to infections.

During the ovulation phase, the pH becomes neutral or alkaline (it is then between 7 and 7.5), which creates an environment conducive to the survival of spermatozoa.

During the neutral or so-called non-fertile phases, the pH is between 3.5 and 4.5, which creates a harmful environment for sperm.

Too many variations in the vaginal pH unfortunately lead to an imbalance of the bacterial flora, with the unfortunate consequences of the appearance of vaginal infections such as mycosis or vaginosis. 

Danger comes from everywhere!  Taking too many antibiotics, a lack or excess of estrogen or progesterone. On a daily basis, it is neglected or unsuitable intimate hygiene, unwelcome vaginal douches , poor quality soap that take over...

Madam, vaginal lubrication is a natural phenomenon as spontaneous as it is involuntary: it therefore does not depend on your “good will” but on a host of circumstances in your personal life! This lubrication  is greatly favored by your desires, your desires to make love or simply furtive hugs but not only… it also manifests itself when this well-being of body and mind dominates in you,  “from above and from below” made of trust and security.

At the other end of this happy inner path which requires nothing else, there is also sometimes stress, anxiety, fear, too much haste: so many psychic or psychological obstacles which put a hell of a brake on the natural lubrication of your vagina. As a result, the infernal ball of repeated vaginal dryness awaits you!  There is therefore no taboo concerning anything that can help you lubricate your vagina well so that you are not confronted with friction and burning.
