Alkalizing, antioxidant and remineralizing properties.
Alkaline. Is a nutritional supplement formulated on the basis of natural principles that work synergistically and in a complementary way, with alkalizing, anti-inflammatory, antioxidant and remineralizing properties.
Alkaline improve the reserves of the buffer substances present in the body and contains in balanced proportions: alkalizing salts which, natural Vitamin C with antioxidant activity from acerola fruits and FOS.
A sachet of Alkaline is able to supply about 1.9 g of FOS, 750 mg of Acerola (with 17% Vitamin C), and 3.5 g of a particularly balanced formulation of alkaline substances including sodium bicarbonate, magnesium citrate, potassium bicarbonate, potassium citrate and calcium carbonate.
Sodium Bicarbonate acts as a buffering agent against acidity. It is a salt composed of sodium ions and bicarbonate ions.
Magnesium citrate is another popular bioavailable form of magnesium, it is a nutritionally essential mineral that helps increase magnesium intake levels and promotes protein synthesis, healthy bones & teeth, energy and aiding the function of our muscles. It has properties of an antacid.
Potassium citrate is a colourless, odourless, slightly basic, salty substance. Potassium helps aid your cells, blood pressure, muscles, and nerves work properly. It is rapidly absorbed when given by mouth and is excreted in the urine. It is also used as an alkanizing agent in the treatment of mild urinary tract infections such as cystitis. Some preliminary studies show that supplements of potassium bicarbonate and potassium citrate may help in dissolving certain types of kidney stones.
Citrate Western diets rich in animal protein result in long-term acid loading that, despite corresponding increases in net renal acid excretion, may induce a chronic state of acidemia. This may have deleterious effects on both the kidney and bone, by increasing the risk of calcium stone in the former and leading to chemical dissolution of mineral alkaline salts in the latter. This effect also occurs during restrictive and ketogenic nutritional therapies. Whereas supplementation with alkaline citrate has been shown to reduce stone recurrences, its effect on bone turnover has received less attention. A recent study showed that treatment with an alkaline salt, such as potassium citrate, can reduce bone resorption thereby contrasting the potential adverse effects caused by chronic acidemia of protein-rich diets1.
Potassium bicarbonate Low levels of potassium in the blood can lead to health problems. For that reason, a supplement with potassium bicarbonate may be given. The supplement will raise the level of potassium in the blood and reverse the hypokalemia. A diet that is lower in fruits and vegetables and higher in grains and protein can contribute to bone and muscle loss, especially in people older than 50. Another study showed that a supplement of potassium bicarbonate could help slow down the loss of calcium and other nutrients that support good bone health and prevent damage2.
Calcium Carbonate is the carbonic salt of calcium. Body needs calcium in order to circulate blood, move muscle, and contributes to the normal function of digestive enzymes. An adequate supply of calcium with the diet together with a physically active lifestyle can improve the quality and perhaps the amount of life in the elderly population with reduced risk of osteoporosis.

Acerola (Malpighia punicifolia L.) is a plant originated in Central America that has been propagated to South America including Brazil due to its good adaptation to soil and climate. It is nutritionally important, mainly due to its very high level of vitamin C.
In a complex lifestyle based on poor diet or acidic-diet3, insufficient exercise, over-exercising (especially too much cardio, which contributes to stress) or chronic stress, our body potentially becoming more acidic and minerals such as potassium, sodium, magnesium and calcium may be stolen from vital organs and bones to combat or buffer the acid. Calcium deficiency predisposes to various pathologies such as: osteoporosis, kidney stones, cancer, hypertension, obesity and insulin resistance4,5 . During a highly hypocaloric diet, in the first days a metabolic acidosis almost always arises with the typical fasting crises, such as nausea, vomiting, headache, muscle pain, dizziness and apathy. This symptomatology is improved by the contribution of basic mineral salts. The intake of basic mineral substances can therefore represent a considerable improvement in weight loss diet disorders.

Alkaline improves the reserves of the buffer substances present in the body and mitigates the effects of acid-forming diet maintaining a constant blood pH.
