Rated 5 out of 5 by from It's PH paper and it is viable! I state that as in "days gone buy" one could purchase this almost anywhere. Now hard to find. I was going to buy on Amazon but too many "it was not fresh, ie did not read correctly" so bought from company I trust. So "viable" and is a great product for testing urine and saliva PH.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Helps Keep us in Check We have used this product for many years and given it as gifts to friends. My mouth is usually acidic 1st thing in the morning. If urine is also acidic I often find that I am not feeling well. Other family members tend to be very alkaline. We use this product to help us understand our body chemistry and processing tenancies. It helps remind us of foods and drink that make keep us more balanced and healthy.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from pH testing tape Testing tape works as advertised to check your pH level. It just costs less then at the local pharmacy.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Acid-alkaline testing. The opinions about acid-alkaline balance in your body varies a lot. Most of them favours a slight acid content. Since I wanted to know where my body stands on this scale, I ordered the Tape with Dispenser. It is easy to use and will show you several times a day where your body stands. Will keep on using this.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from not for saliva testing Our saliva is always alkaline no matter what, so if you don't use this for urine testing which is what it's made for ..... well, you'll read PURPLE every time!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Easy Read Easy to use and read. Most cost effective. You can adjust the amount of paper to use. I've used some other products that you can't adjust how much is used. So it doesn't go very far.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Good Product This product works as directed. I use it along with ph booster drops to keep my levels alkaline. They are great for checking your drinking h20 as well.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from pH Paper + Container I've been buying from Swanson's for quite sometime, now. And when I needed more pH paper, I checked my local pharmacy's around north Dallas & several Internet sights. They all were quite a bit more expensive than the Swanson's price. I purchase a lot of other vitamins & supplements from Swanson's that I can't find locally. Also, I can pay with PayPal, the safest way to purchase on-line. That's a BIG PLUS! Thank You! Dave :o)

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Swanson Testing Tape I use this to test my urine pH in the morning and find the paper to be high quality and very accurate

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Wonderful Years ago I purchased this product. Every time I tested my urine it always read as acid. it never seem to move. I stop using it, but it was still in my bathroom cabinet. About a week ago, I decided to throw it out. Just before I did so, I decided to test some 8.0 pH water which I purchased. Immediately, the paper for the first time was not acid. Believe it or not the expiration date on the tape was 2004. Now, I am drinking the 8.0 pH water and testing more often. It works after 6 years.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Good price, and product satisfies my needs.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from A useful tool in PH management I have used this tape as an effective aid in determining my PH levels. It is important to wait at least 2-3 hours after consuming a meal in order to get an accurate reading. Saliva testing, in any case, is slightly more unsound than measuring urine PH, which is best tested in the morning. One roll of tape goes a long way - I have had mine for over a year - and just a small length is sufficient to do the job. The price is affordable, also.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Waste of money With saliva, showing one color(purple) and with urine another color. Be careful if you touch wet tape, it bleeds on your finger even though it washes easily with water and soap. This is totally waste of money.
