April is coming to a close, and as it does, so does my partnership with Pascoe Naturals. In case you’ve missed my previous posts, I’ve been taking BASENTABS, an antacid containing alkaline salts which aid in balancing our bodies pH levels.
Before I continue on, for those who missed the first posts, or would like to refresh their memories here are those links:
It’s now been nearly three weeks and there are a few things I’ve learned during this process. The first being, no matter how healthy or unhealthy you may perceive yourself to be, simple at-home tests can give you great insight into what is going in internally. Using the pH strips that come with the BASENTABS has been so very helpful. Prior to this, I had concerned that I probably was more acidic than I should be, but it wasn’t until I started testing the I knew for sure.
Even after taking the BASENTABS for a few weeks, my pH levels are more acidic than is ideal. I’m not overly surprised as I’ve been struggling with my IBS this month, which means my fruit and vegetable intake has been considerably lower than usual (like 90% lower) as I’m having trouble digesting them, which means my diet has been filled with more acidic forming foods than I would otherwise be having.
Yes pancakes, I’m looking at you. But even still, I’ve seen a definite improvement in my pH levels which tells me that using BASSENTABS is making a difference. Since increasing my daily dosage, I’ve definitely seen a trend towards more of those elusive green colours in my pH strips which is really encouraging.
I’m still waiting to find some of those dark green colours though, so I certainly have a way to go. I apologise for showing you the same picture again, but it feels weird to me to share my actual sheet again now that I’ve been recording numbers, and it especially would be weird to share a used pH strip photo, haha. So you’ll just have to use your imagination.
One thing I do know is that now that I have a method for checking – and correcting my pH levels, my bones will thank me for later in life!
This is a supplement that you shouldn’t take for more than a couple weeks at a time, so while I won’t be continuing this treatment long term, I do plan to repeat a couple times per year until I find myself more successful at walking that path of a balanced pH level all on my own.
Who Shouldn’t Use BASENTABS?:
People with a kidney disease should not take BASENTABS except under the advice of a doctor. Those who are on a low-salt diet or are pregnant should also not take BASENTABS.
Who Should Take BASENTABS?:
Anyone who is living a healthy lifestyle and is interested in learning more about their own body’s pH levels. Because acidic pH levels rob nutrients from your bones to balance your pH, those concerned with bone health would also be great candidates for BASENTABS.
May cause diarrhea but I didn’t experience any side effects.
