Having a sufficient amount of stomach acid is necessary for you to digest food properly. However‚ this acid becomes a problem if it leaves your stomach and travels up your esophagus. This is called acid reflux‚ which can cause heartburn‚ an intense burning sensation in your chest area. Acid reflux is created by an overproduction of stomach acid that makes it past a weakened esophageal sphincter muscle. Eating certain foods—such as tomatoes‚ coffee‚ peppermint‚ citrus fruits‚ onions‚ and garlic—can relax the esophageal sphincter muscle‚ allowing for easy passage of this stomach acid. Other factors include eating fatty foods‚ smoking‚ being under constant stress‚ and getting little sleep.
Occasional heartburn is usually nothing to worry about. However‚ chronic heartburn‚ signaling acid reflux‚ can lead to serious discomfort and health problems. You can minimize heartburn by taking antacid medications‚ which neutralize this acid. Integrative Therapeutics’ Alka-Aid are a natural alternative to the harsher chemical treatments currently available. These tablets work with your body to potentially reduce the negative effects of stomach acid in your digestive system.
This balanced formula was designed specifically for doctors using Heidelberg pH Gastrogram. The Gastrogram tracks changes in pH through a capsule sized radio transmitter‚ and is considered to be one of the most effective ways of tracking changes in pH. The active ingredients in this product are sodium and potassium‚ with a ratio of 2:1 sodium bicarbonates to potassium bicarbonates; the bicarbonates work to change the acid to a more neutral alkaline pH‚ while working to relieve the painful symptoms associated with acid indigestion.
If you suffer from occasional indigestion‚ take two tablets of Alka-Aid when it occurs; this can be repeated every four hours as needed‚ unless otherwise recommended by your physician. These tablets must be swallowed whole‚ not chewed or dissolved in the mouth. It’s not recommended that you take more than 12 tablets in a 24-hour period. Alka-Aid by Integrative Therapeutics isn’t recommended if you’re pregnant‚ nursing‚ on a sodium-restricted diet‚ or have kidney disease.

I LOVE Alka-Aid Tablet !!!!
Alka-Aid Tablet is GREAT!!!!!!! I have too much acid in my stomach and cant take acid reducer due to having a reaction to them and then my stomach produces more acid. I cant take anti-acids because they dont work or I have a reaction to them. My doctor recommended Alka-Aid Tablet to me and it has been a God send. When I have too much acid in my stomach I get stomach cramps very painful stomach cramps! I take Alka-aid and it works every time!! Before I found Alka-Aid Tablet I was in pain almost every day.
it works fast
take it without dissolving it in water
no bad taste
√ I would recommend this item to a friend.
