AlkaPure pH should be dosed, based on urinary/salivary pH testing.
The goal, as with most things in health is to achieve balance. You are aiming to reach alkalinity during the day and allow your body to drop back into acidity during the night.
Constant alkalinity is just as bad as constant acidity!
pH Testing has always been controversial, because our bodies are in constant flux and one test
is just a snap shot of your pH range throughout the day.
We recommend to test salivary pH, and, to test frequently in the beginning.
Keep a pH diary to learn more about how your body. You'll see how you respond to certain foods, drinks, and life situations. This will help you make informed - better - decisions about food and life style.
Some individuals with reflux symptoms and chronic inflammation, surprisingly test in very alkaline ranges, pH >8 or dark blue. This would give you the false impression that all is good.
But what is measured in such a cases is the bodies response to excessive acidity and the attempt to neutralize by dumping alkaline minerals from bone and muscle reservoirs.
What is happening here is osteoporosis in progress.
Once these individuals start using AlkaPure pH, it takes over the "dumping action", the osteoporotic process stops and the underlying acidic levels of the tissues reveal themselves, usually within 1-2 days.
As with anything in life - balance is key.
In the beginning, measure your pH more often for 5 consecutive days and record your results:
Early morning, before you brush your teeth,
at around 10 o’clock a.m, between breakfast and lunch,
at around 3 o’clock p.m, between lunch and dinner,
Always test on empty stomack after meals, at least 1 hour after food and drink.
Collect saliva and swallow the first collection, then use the second collection for testing.
It is normal to be slightly acidic in the morning (pH 6.5 to 6.8), as long as you turn alkaline, pH > 7, during the day.
Most of us, with stressful life's, pro-acidic diets and insufficient water intake, accumulate acids in the tissues and we tend to linger at a pH of 5.5 to 6.5 all day, preventing proper enzyme function and detoxification, thus promoting inflammation.
Some of us test almost neutral (pH=7), despite lots of inflammation due to large acid deposits in the tissues. This could be considered a false negative.
AlkaPure pH will jump start detoxification in these individuals and previously neutral tests quickly drop into acidic range, revealing hyperacidity.
Once you work with Alkapure and learn about your pH range, you will learn about how your body responds to diet, exercise, and supplementation - and most individuals require less frequent testing, usually just a couple of times a week, in the early morning.
" 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.
" 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.
" 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.
" 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 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!!
" 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 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!

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.
