pH Nutrient Absorption Chart. The cells of the body can only accept nutrients when the solution surrounding them are at a particular pH. This chart indicates the absorpability or various nutrients at different pH levels.

Nutrient Absorption and pH

The cells of the body can only absorb different nutrients at certain pH levels.

The hardest to absorb is iodine. The pH needed for iodine is 6.3 to 6.6. The easiest minerals to be absorbed are: Hydrogen, Carbon, Lithium, Beryllium, Boron, Nitrogen, Oxygen and Flourine. The tissue pH can be anywhere from 5.4 to 7.6

How this applies to health is obvious, the body's cells cannot absorb a nutrient if the pH is off. So people can develop a deficience problem if they pH is off. Often the person also experiences an allergic reaction to the nutrient, because the body can not utilize it.


Below are two charts which covers the same material, presented differently, to help clarify.
