Antacid Containing Alkaline Salts to Reduce Hyperacidity and Also Acid Indigestion
AlkaPure pH contains the two components that the body naturally uses to balance Acidity – it replenishes the body's alkaline reservoirs that are drained by stress and our Standard American Diet (SAD).
Try AlkaPure pH for digestion support.
Maintaining a balanced pH allows the body to function optimally & healthily while helping to prevent chronic illness.
A hyper-acidic system could be contributing to osteoporosis.
Supports the detoxification process.
Bloating, gas, and acid reflux can be a result of too little stomach acid.
A healthy body is in balance.
Mineral Balance, Hormonal Balance, Acid-Base Balance...
When talking about Acid-Base Balance (pH Balance) we have to distinguish between Gastric Acid and Systemic Acidity.
We need healthy amounts of acid in our stomach to break down proteins, fats and carbs, to absorb all minerals and to function as a natural barrier for bad bacteria, parasites, and fungi.
Stress, sedentary life style and our Standard American Diet (SAD) though, constantly increase levels of acidity via the blood into lymph, connective and other peripheral tissues – which we do not need.
Alkaline Therapy or pH Balance is not aiming to change blood pH, which the body maintains within its narrow pH window, but much rather help the body reduce latent, chronic metabolic acidosis in peripheral tissues.
The body compensates by sacrificing its alkaline reservoirs - minerals from bones and muscles - and the two buffering systems of the blood – Bicarbonate and Phosphate Dibasic.
Chronic Stress and SAD will slowly deplete these alkaline reservoirs, causing Osteoporosis, or, in the attempt to maintain blood pH levels the body is forced to deposit acids in the tissues, usually in the periphery, like hands and feet and skin, where hyperacidity will fuel inflammation.
AlkaPure pH, when taken between meals, rebalances gastric acid and replenishes the body's buffering systems. Bones and muscles no longer need to sacrifice their supplies.
Reflux, believed to be caused by too much stomach acid, and treated with acid blocking drugs,
can oftentimes be caused by the exact opposite: too little alkalinity.
Why else would the elderly, who have a low gastric acid production, have such trouble with reflux symptoms?
But the acidity issues do not end with just reflux.
Even a slightly acidic body has a higher tendency to create inflammation, usually in peripheral tissues, like:
Tendons: Plantar Fasciitis, Bursitis, Carpal Tunnel, Tennis Elbow,
Skin: Rosacea, Psoriasis, Dermatitis, Eczema, ...
Chronic acidity and inflammation are the starting points for chronic disease:
Reflux (GERD), Osteoporosis, Food Sensitivities, Allergies, Autoimmune Diseases, IBS, Colitis, Arteriosclerosis, Osteoarthritis, Vasculitis...
High systemic acidity inhibits our immune system and favors bacteria and viruses. This predisposes the body to re-occurring infections.
Chronic Sinusitis, Candidiasis, UTI's, Interstitial Cystitis, Cellulitis, Herpes. Even Lyme Disease?
Combat acidity - Alkaline your body!
Maintaining alkalinity is essential for a healthy life.

"Acid Stress" happens when the sum of acidity and waste taken in and produced by the body, exceeds the body's buffering capacity and the capacity to excrete.
Beyond the generally accepted belief that an inflamed tissue has higher acidity - and that additional acidity increases inflammation - there is now evidence in a 2013 PubMed study that clearly outlines the connection between “acid stress” and an increased gene expression of pro-inflammatory cytokines.(5)
High systemic acidity fuels inflammation.
More and more research is pointing to 'lifestyle-induced, low-grade inflammation' for conditions like: respiratory diseases, mental disorders, and autoimmune diseases (1,2,3,4,6)
The main challenge is that our bodies have to decide whether to allow the waste to keep "floating around" (compromising a variety of important bodily functions) or deposit it somewhere that, for the short term, causes less harm.
The issue is, this deposition was only ever intended for a short period. But in our fast paced lifestyles with ever growing levels of stress, it does not get removed at all.
The result is, excess acidity slowly accumulating in the tissues, if the environmental and dietary stressors don't change.
Subsequently this will lead to tissues that are overloaded with acids and waste, which cause acid stress and triggers the release of pro-inflammatory cytokines - inflammation is the only tool the body has left in the attempt to deal with the excess waste.
This excerpt from a 2012 research article in the open access “Journal of Nutrition and Metabolism”, describes very clearly the changes we all see and feel in our daily lives:
“Modern man is exposed to an environment which has changed enormously since the time of the industrial revolution. In recent decades there has been a tremendous acceleration in innovations which have changed our lives completely. As a consequence, more than 75% of humans do not meet the minimum requirement of the estimated necessary daily physical activity , 72% of modern food types is new in human evolution , psycho-emotional stress has increased and man is exposed to an overwhelming amount of information on a daily basis.” (1)
We are faced with ever increasing levels of stress - and through that, acidity and inflammation. We see an ever decreasing quality of available food, with a decreasing level of contained nutrients, especially alkalining minerals, and an increasing level of gene modified content.
We are slowly coming to accept that relying on school medicine and the pharmaceutical industry can't fix these lifestyle problems. Only lifestyle changes and nutritional interventions can resolve the gap between our growing nutritional needs and decreasing nutritional content of our food. (Sad as that is.)
What can be done to stop or even reverse this process? We can change our ways - try to avoid stress as much as possible, find ways to deal with stress differently, chose foods that we know decrease acidity, exercise regularly, buy local, organic and unprocessed,... but first and foremost:
Alkaline your body ! Replenish your buffering capacities.

" Cathy recently had a flare-up of her chronic eczema, an inflammation of the skin that can become quite painful. In her words: "I used all kinds of over-the-counter creams, but nothing worked. I had to cover my hands with fingerless gloves to keep the skin moist. Then Mhari suggested I try Pure Lab Alkapure. I took the recommended dose and within 2 days I noticed a difference. After 2 weeks my hands were almost completely healed. It takes 6 - 8 weeks to realize the full benefit, but I was so happy that my hands were no longer tender and inflamed."
" I have acid reflux and a hiatus hernia and have always had a dry cough. I have been taking medication for this for a long time. Over the last year the cough has gotten worse and the doctor cannot seem to find out what is causing it. It is very annoying as I have to carry water and candies with me wherever I go as I never know when i am going to start coughing. It is also very embarrassing when it starts when you are in the dentist chair or at the chiropractor or just standing in a checkout line at. After visiting the Natural Food Pantry and learning about Alkapure, I decided to try them and the cough started to be less often. For three weeks it was gone altogether. It has started back again but I will keep taking the Alkapure as it does seem to be helping me and hope that one of these days it will be gone for good.
" In April of 2012, I suddenly found myself awaiting surgery to remove a very large kidney stone. The surgeons referred to it as a “horned stone”, an extremely rare condition .
This surgery required splitting the kidney opened to remove the stone. Other less aggressive methods for removal were not an option because of the size of the stone. At this time, they informed me that I had a very acidic system, which they believed caused this stone. They did not instruct me on any remedies or diet to rectify this problem, and I did not understand or was aware of the health conditions that could affect me with having this condition.
I continued on with life, combating sore joints in my shoulders, knees, fingers and wrist pain believing it was a normal condition that comes along with age, and the climate conditions I lived in.
I was introduced to Alkapure – Christmas 2015, and in a instant noticed a relief of joint pain, and my mobility improved each day. Also, at this time, I was suffering with severe tennis elbow from three weeks prior. This pain disappeared very quickly after taking this product and has not returned.
I have tested this product by stopping a dose only to quickly realize that my chronic pain returned in an instant.
I have recommended this product to others with the same conditions, they also noticed a significant improvement in joint pain and mobility and they will not be without this product.
To find a product that is all natural, without fillers or chemicals is absolute good fortune, and I would highly recommend this for anyone suffering with any of these conditions. I am so thankful for being introduced to this product, and would not hesitate to recommend it to others.
" My Grandmother suffered from severe joint pain that seemed to get progressively worse over the course of 10 years. She also suffered from frequently occurring bone fractures that would leave her crippled and in intense pain for weeks – having to rely on a walker to help get her around the house. When I gave her a bottle of Alkapure she noticed immediate and drastic results! She's been taking Alkapure for over one month now, dosing at 4 capsules daily, 2 in the morning and 2 at night, on an empty stomach, and is amazed at the results she's been having after only a short period of time. She reported feeling stronger and able to walk freely without her walker. She was also able to move her joints without stiffness or pain, as she was unable to wiggle her toes for nearly 10 years and can now move them freely. Her doctor even commented on how well she looked and on her improvements. From seeing these amazing improvements in her health, she tells me she won’t go a day without Alkapure now and plans to continue to take it long-term, while monitoring her pH levels. She feels truly grateful to have found a product that works so well for her.
" I have been struggling with some unexplained allergic reaction for around five weeks. It started with me waking up with hives on hands and feet at night and then I would just get random welts on different parts of me but most often on wrists. It happened in different places no matter what soaps or laundry detergent I used, I fasted, took Benadryl, but still didn’t sleep one full night. Then my wonderful friend suggested Alkapure by Pure Lab Vitamins, an Ottawa company,to fight it from the inside out. I took 6 caps the first day after waking up with a reaction as usual. I had a full night with no hives so did the same the second day. Again no hives no itch I am so happy!!! this has worked for indigestion for me but I forgot what the wrong acid-alkaline levels can do to a person!!
" I am now a devoted customer of yours. Been reaping obvious health benefit from AlkaPure. I found it while shopping for magnesium, iodine and sodium bicarbonate. I was interested in those elements because cancer is very prevalent in my family and I wanted to take preventative measures. Most obvious benefits noted so far is dissipation of plantar fasciitis symptoms in my feet, joint stiffness disappeared, and even my right knee which had been bothering me for a while is no longer complaining.
Couldn't be more thrilled!
" I have suffered from IBS for many years and indigestion due to a hiatal hernia in my stomach not to mention that I have fybromialgia and osteoarthritis. I was on acid reduction pills prescribed from my doctor which did not even help me. Every day after meals, I used to have gurgling noise in my stomach, indigestion, bloating, abdominal cramps and gas issues.
I finally decided to go to Market Organics and met Nandita who recommended that I take Alkapure. I wasn't sure if this would help me after all the products I had taken before.
Well, to my surprise, just after taking 2 capsules of the first day all my symptoms disappeared. I could not thank you enough and this I believe will change my life. I cannot wait to see how I will feel after one week.
I do believe that this will help IBS sufferers.
" I’ve been using Pure Lab products for over a year. Specifically the Alkapure and Magnesium + Melatonin. I like the purity of the products, and the fact that they do what is advertised. Alkapure has balanced my digestive system, so I no longer have any indigestion or heartburn. Ever. The Magnesium + Melatonin provides me with less muscle fatigue, and a more peaceful sleep. These products are better than medication. They balance your bodies natural functions. Pure. All natural. That’s what I want to put into my body. Thank you Pure Lab Vitamins for making natural products we can trust... that actually work!
