After a bit more research and one quick google search, “Ethanol is a neutral molecule and the pH of a solution of ethanol in water is nearly 7.00. Ethanol can be quantitatively converted to its conjugate base, the …” Of course, in chemistry if you mix ethyl alcohol with sugar and other acidic foods/drinks, your pH level will become highly acidic. Hence, why the manufacturer of this product highly recommends to drink 8-10 cups of water a day while on this cleanse because the more water in your in take, the more neutral the solution becomes. Now, not to be mean, but how does this not affect your pH level in a positive manner? Ethyl alcohol mixes with water to become close to neutral. We are trying to restore our pH level back between 7.0-7.4 correct? As far as yeast releasing ethyl alcohol to “replicate and multiply”, maybe it is actually releasing the ethyl alcohol to keep balance by excreting acid to aid in digestion, but when a person digests antibiotics and/or too much acidic foods, alcohol and sugars, then of course, your pH level continues to become more acidic. Every person on this planet has yeast in their body which produces ethyl alcohol, so why do they not have yeast infections? Hmmm… lets stop and think for a moment. Obviously, their digestive system and their bodies natural balance is out of whack from external factors. Thanks again!
