Frequently asked questions - General questions
The pH of my urine is lower after a few weeks of de-acidification. How is this possible?
The pH of the urine is lower because many acids are excreted through the urine. The urine will only have a pH of 7 or higher in an ideal situation. However, as acid waste (uric acid) passes through the urine, urine will always stay below a pH of 7.
I use supplements, can I continue to use these supplements?
You can continue to use supplements in addition to de-acidification. Supplements like Alka® Greens replenish shortages in the body.
Use mineral water or tap water for the Alka® Drops?
Mineral water is often acidic and has a pH between 6 and 7. If you use mineral water you should add more drops (5 instead of 3) to reach a pH level between 9 and 10. We recommend using tap water as the pH is above 7. Adding 3 drops to tap water leads to a pH between 9 and 10.
Can I also buy Alka® products in a store?

Can dogs and cats also drink alkaline water?
Certainly, you can give your pet alkaline water. This has the same de-acidifying effect as it has on humans. Add 10 drops in a water bowl (about 500ml), refresh the water in the morning and in the afternoon.
