Low-grade diet-induced acidosis has emerged as a clinically significant risk factor for increased bone resorption‚ hypertension and kidney stone formation‚ and may also adversely affect muscle function and insulin sensitivity. Supplementation with the alkaline mineral citrate complexes found in AlkaCare pH has been shown to normalize the acidosis caused by a Western diet‚ and improve markers of bone turnover as well as bone mineral density‚ an effect directly associated with a reduction in urinary net acid excretion. Additionally‚ the use of these alkaline minerals has been shown to help in the dissolution of kidney stones‚ as well as the prevention of a recurrence in those prone to stone formation.
The minerals in AlkaCare pH are bound to citrate‚ not only to increase their absorption‚ but because citrate itself has direct alkalinizing affects and reduces the risk of kidney stone formation. Also‚ most studies have used only individual nutrients‚ but clinical evidence suggests they have a synergistic effect when they are used together. AlkaCare pH combines these alkaline mineral citrates with an antioxidant rich berry blend as oxidative stress has also been linked to accelerated bone resorption.
Contains the alkaline minerals calcium‚ magnesium and potassium in highly absorbable forms
Complexed to citrate for superior absorption and for citrates’ efficacy in reducing kidney stone formation
Provides proprietary berry blend rich in antioxidants to reverse oxidative stress
Synergistic blend of alkaline nutrients has greater benefit when used together

Patients with impaired renal function should only use potassium/magnesium supplements under medical supervision.
Supplementation with potassium increases the risk for hyperkalemia when given with several types of medications used to treat hypertension‚ such as diuretics and ACE inhibitors. Bisphosphonates should not be taken within 2 hours of calcium or magnesium supplements‚ which reduce their absorption. Calcium also interferes with the absorption of other drugs‚
including levothyroxine‚ diuretics‚ quinolone and tetracycline antibiotics‚ and several drugs used to treat atrial fibrillation. AlkaCare pH contains nutrients known to lower blood pressure in those with hypertension‚ and may require a dosage reduction in related medications.
