WHAT MAKES PROPER INTIMATE IMPORTANT?
The acidity alkalinity of a substance is measured by its PH value, which is a number from 0 – 14. The lower the number, the more acidic the substance; water is neutral, with a PH value of 7. Ph balance is vital for the proper functioning of our bodies. All our organs function properly at specific PH levels and protect us from illness and infection.
The medium of a normal healthy Vagina is acidic and its PH value is between 3.5 to 4.5. This PH level is ideal for the survival of “good” bacteria (lactobacilli). If this finely tuned equilibrium of PH is disturbed, harmful bacteria can proliferate, leading to Vaginal problems like foul odour, irritation, discomfort and discharge.
