Q: Can I take AlkaLife and Bicarb-Balance or e-Cal at the same time?
A: All three products are excellent mineral supplements, and you can do an either/or scenario, take two, or even all three simultaneously. In these cases, you can take the recommended dosage of AlkaLife along with one of the tablet supplements or a half dosage of Bicarb-Balance and e-Cal, one in the morning and the other in the evening. There is no need to worry about an excess of alkalinity, as the body will balance itself and discharge any excess alkaline minerals through urine and perspiration. As we age, the content of bicarbonates diminishes, so this would not be considered an overdose.
Q: Why take e-Cal versus Bicarb-Balance?
A: Kidney patients have to watch their potassium intake, so e-Cal is an excellent choice as it is calcium based. e-Cal is a safe and beneficial form of calcium in the blood. Not only does it provide bicarbonate to neutralize acid as it enters the bloodstream, but it also delivers active calcium back to the body. e-Cal is a win-win tablet because it delivers both calcium and bicarbonate to the bloodstream, two valuable elements we lose as we age.
Q: If I’m already taking a calcium supplement, do I stop taking it when I start taking e-Cal?
A: e-Cal is primarily an alkaline booster, replenishing bicarbonates to the blood stream. It also provides impurity-free calcium to the body, so it is a calcium supplement as well, but it is best to continue taking your calcium supplement, taking it down to about half the dosage and adding e-Cal’ simultaneously to your supplemental diet. 2 tablets of e-Cal contain 180 mg. of calcium.
Q: I was told that calcium must be accompanied by vitamin D for the body to absorb it. Does e-Cal have vitamin D?’
A: In normal calcium supplements, it is true that Vitamin D is necessary in order for the body to absorb the calcium. In the case of e-Cal, the calcium is enteric coated and enters into the blood stream directly, therefore it is not necessary to add Vitamin D for absorption. Because of the fact that e-Cal puts the calcium directly into the blood stream, AlkaLife has taken special care to put our calcium through a special purification process as natural calcium carbonate contains impurities.
Q: Among the three main Alkalife products (Alkalife drops, Bicarb-Balance and e-Cal) which are better for which conditions?
A: All three are excellent for replenishing bicarbonates to the bloodstream to neutralize acid. For those who cannot swallow tablets, we recommend AlkaLife. Both AlkaLife and Bicarb-Balance are excellent for conditions such as kidney stones and gall stones because the potassium and sodium dissolve the stones more readily. For osteoporosis and for people on kidney dialysis, e-Cal is ideal. For those who have achlorhydria or hypochlorhydria, a condition where their stomachs do not produce sufficient hydrochloric acid for digestion, it is best to take either Bicarb-Balance or e-Cal as their stomachs will not produce sufficient amounts of hydrochloric acid to produce, as a result, a sufficient amount of bicarbonates. The tablets will supply the necessary bicarbonates directly to the bloodstream.
Q: Are AlkaLife products FDA approved?
A: None of our three alkaline booster products are food or medicine, therefore, FDA does not approve nor disapprove of them. However, FDA wants to know if they are toxic when consumed as directed. Alkaline water made by AlkaLife, Bicarb-Balance and e-Cal, are tested to be non-toxic according to tests conducted by an FDA approved independent testing lab, following FDA approved test procedures.
Q: What if I have osteoporosis and stones together?
A: The ideal combination would be to take both e-Cal and Bicarb-Balance but take one in the morning immediately after breakfast and the other 10-12 hours later after another meal.
Q: What about osteoporosis alone?
A: Any of the three products or a combination will work fine.
Q: Will your products help cataracts?
A: Cataracts are acid salts building in your eyes. As we get old, or as we stress our eyes, phosphoric acid or uric acid builds up in our eyes. Since these acids are poisonous, the body supplies calcium to neutralize the poisonous acids and they become acid salts such as phosphate, or urate. These acid salts are not soluble and form opaque build-ups, called cataracts. Bicarbonates supplied by either AlkaLife or Bicarb-Balance’ should dissolve acid salt in time. Alkaline water made by a water ionizer or coral-calcium is based upon calcium based alkaline water. Calcium cannot kick out calcium. Alkaline water made with AlkaLife and Bicarb-Balance tablets are based upon potassium and sodium, which are stronger alkaline minerals than calcium, and they can kick out calcium from the acid salt. A water softener uses this principle to kick out calcium from hard water using sodium salt. Kidney stones dissolve better by AlkaLife made alkaline water and Bicarb-Balance tablets. When potassium or sodium kicks out calcium, potassium or sodium combines with phosphoric acid or uric acid. Fortunately, potassium or sodium compounds are very soluble, not like calcium, and they can be discharged easily into the blood stream. It would take time, but with patience, you should see improvements. How long it would take depends upon how long and how much build-up there is. If the cataracts are in an earlier stage of development it may take less time. The best thing to do is to make the body alkaline so that it doesn’t even develop acid salts. Prevention is much better than treatment.
Q: How soon would I feel the effect(s) of drinking alkaline water or taking the alkaline booster tablets?
A: It depends on the individual and the kind of symptoms you have. Many customers experience relief of gout pain, acid reflux, morning sickness, kidney stones, fibromyalgia, high altitude sickness, high blood pressure, cholesterol, diabetes, etc. Some people feel the effects immediately (such as morning sickness and high altitude sickness). Some symptoms, such as high blood pressure, gout, high cholesterol, may take several weeks or even months. If you don’t feel any symptoms, you may not notice any effect. However, rest assured that the bicarbonates, by way of AlkaLife®, Bicarb-Balance® or e-Cal® are neutralizing acidic wastes accumulated somewhere in your body. Remember that cancer cells are also acidic and thrive in an acidic environment.
Q: What about antacids, such as Tums, instead of AlkaLife, Bicarb-Balance or e-Cal?
A: Antacids are for temporary relief of excess stomach acid only, not for continued consumption to neutralize excess accumulated acidic wastes throughout our body. Drinking water with AlkaLife and/or taking Bicarb-Balance and e-Cal are lifestyle changes, it’s a daily preventative practice over time to maintain good health. With all the ingredients in antacids, it is not recommended for long-term use.
Q: What are the differences between AlkaLife, Bicarb-Balance, and e-Cal?
A: All three products add life-sustaining alkaline buffer, bicarbonate, to the bloodstream. Medical science has discovered that we lose bicarbonate in the blood as we age, especially after the age of 45. AlkaLife puts bicarbonates into the bloodstream indirectly through the action of the stomach. When you drink high pH alkaline water made by AlkaLife, the stomach pH rises too high for the stomach, and it induces the stomach to produce hydrochloric acid and put it into the stomach. At the same time, the stomach also produces bicarbonate and puts it in the bloodstream. If the stomach is overly acidic, drinking alkaline water may not raise the stomach pH high enough, and therefore, the production of hydrochloric acid may be small, and consequently, the bicarbonate production will be minimal as well. Bicarb-Balance and e-Cal do not dissolve in the stomach, they dissolve slowly in the intestine and the bicarbonate goes directly into the bloodstream from the intestine. They do not depend upon the condition of the stomach and are much more convenient than drinking 5 glasses of water a day. You can take Bicarb-Balance and e-Cal and drink alkaline water made by AlkaLife. Even taking all three will not over-alkalize you but will help you get rid of acid faster. If you take more than needed, your body will dump the excess alkalinity and your urine will become alkaline.
Q: Can Bicarb-Balance and e-Cal tablets be broken in half for easier swallowing?
A: Absolutely not. Do not break the tablets for easier swallowing because it will break the enteric coating. For those who cannot swallow tablets, AlkaLife is a better recommendation.
