pH is a measure of alkalinity (base) and acidity. Normal blood pH is between 7.35 and 7.45. When your blood pH is above 7.45 then you have alkaline blood. This is also called alkalemia.

Your body can compensate for an increase in base or acid. Stomach acid neutralizes bases and your blood has a lot of HCO3 (bicarbonate) that can buffer, or resist, changes in pH up or down.

If one's blood is considered to be alkaline it means that the PH levels in the blood have more alkaline than acids. Often the levels of alkaline can be increased due to diseases that destroy organs such as bones, liver and bile ducts.
