Ph of Saliva

Posted by Bob (Boxford, MA)

Who's really correct? most sources say your pH saliva should be 7.5, in order to be healthy! This article says 6.4. Why so large a difference? Thanks

Urinary pH is between 6.1 - 7.3. Salivary pH must be higher than urinary pH, generally it is 6.8 - 7.4. Ideally urinary pH is 6.4 and salivary is ideally 7.4.

To resolve this is simple, if your pH does not fall within this range and you are sick, then you probably know which pH to believe. The pH figures are derived from averages of healthy people!
