Frequently asked questions | Alka

General questions and nutrition (28)

  • What are deacidification symptoms?

    Complaints such as flu, inflammation, fatigue and excessive urination are classified as deacidification symptoms. These arise because the breakdown of waste acids is greater than the body can process in its own way. How long the deacidification symptoms persist depends on the amount of waste acids in the body.

  • What should I do if I suffer from deacidification symptoms?

    Reduce your dose or build in or rest for 1 to 2 days. For example, drink water and Alka® Tea, but do not use drops. This temporarily slows or stops the active deacidification process and gives the body some rest. After 2 days you can slowly start again with active deacidification. Always adjust the dose according to your feelings.

  • Do I have to watch my diet during deacidification?

    Make sure that you get plenty of minerals and trace elements. Eat plenty of vegetables and take vegetable mineral supplements (Alka® Greens). These minerals will bind with the soaked waste acids.

  • How can I support the removal of acids?

    By drinking a few cups of Alka® Tea daily. Herbs have the property of being able to bind acids well, which stimulates drainage. In addition, taking alkaline foot, hand and full body baths with Alka® Bath is very good for removing loosened acids from the body

  • How does cellulite develop?

    Cellulite develops because of the build-up of acidic slags in the legs / buttocks. By actively deacidifying and building up sufficient minerals again, the waste slags are dissolved after a few months and the skin becomes smoother.

  • Can I deacidify if I have a stoma?

    For a stoma we recommend Alka® Drops as they have their effect in the stomach, via the stomach wall cells.

  • Why not dissolve baking soda in water and drink it?

    We do not recommend dissolving baking soda in water and drinking it. This is converted in your stomach by the stomach acid into water (H2O), carbon dioxide (CO2) and table salt (NaCl). The salt formation can then increase your blood pressure. Alka® products have been specifically developed to counter this undesirable effect.

  • Are the ingredients of Alka® products on the doping list?

    No, the products are not on the doping list.

  • The pH value of my urine is lower after a few weeks of deacidification. How is this possible?

    The pH value of urine is lower because many acids are excreted through urine. Urine will only ideally have a pH of 7 or higher. However, this almost never happens.

  • Can I keep taking or should I stop taking my supplements?

    Supplements can be taken in addition to deacidification.

  • Should I use spring water or tap water for Alka® Drops?

    Spring water is often acidic and has a pH value between 6 and 7. You must then add more Alka® drops (6 instead of 4) to increase the pH value to 9 - 10. We recommend that you use tap water. As its pH value is higher than 7. If you add 4 Alka® drops to tap water, this will lead to a pH value between 9 to 10.

  • Are Alka® products reimbursed by my health insurance?

    Our products are classified as dietary supplements and are not reimbursed.

  • Can I order by phone?

    You can order by telephone via telephone number +31 40 30 400 17

  • Will my order be shipped free of charge?

    We have a flat rate shipment of €4,75 on all orders and FREE shipment above €75

  • Can I also buy Alka® products in a store?

    This depends on where you live. Please contact our costumer service team for more information.

  • Can my pet also drink alkaline water?

    Your pet may also drink alkaline water. This has the same deacidifying effect as in humans. For dogs and cats we recommend putting 10 Alka® Drops in a stone drinking bowl with (about 500 ml) of water in it, or to use the pHpets drops which we developed specify for pets. Don't forget to change the water in the morning and in the afternoon.

  • Are the products of Alka® products registered as recognized homeopathic or anthroposophical?

    Alka® products do not fall under homeopathic or classical anthroposophical products and are therefore not registered as such.

  • Do I have to keep deacidifying my whole life?

    Acidification is a continuous process. Acidic waste products are created in your body every day. Continuing to deacidify with Alka® therefore offers the optimal counterbalance so that you can maintain good health.

  • Do the prices include VAT?

    Yes, all prices stated on the Alka website include VAT.

  • Are there any unexpected extra costs?

    At Alka you pay the stated amount. We do not charge shipping costs for orders above €75. A purchase amount lower than € 75? We use shipping costs of € 5.95. In addition, a surcharge of € 1.75 applies to paying via "Klarna, pay afterwards" for this payment method.

  • Can I no longer consume acidifying food?

    Our body also needs acidifying food. It's about balance. If you are not deacidifying, you should consume 80% alkaline and 20% acidifying food. If you are deacidifying, you can keep this levels at 60% alkaline and 40% acidifying. Make sure to stay as close to nature as possible. Do not eat packets, bags, soda and be moderate with alcohol.

  • Can I still drink coffee?

    Yes, you can. When you are deacidifying, you can drink 2 to 3 cups of coffee per day.

  • Are there also alkaline recipes?

    Yes, we have alkaline recipes for you. You can find them in the main menu.

  • Is there a nutritional list where I can see which foods have an acidifying effect?

    The acid / base food list can be found on our website

  • Do I now have to eat 100% alkaline?

    No, you would develop nutritional deficiencies. During the deacidification process, we recommend to consume 60% alkaline-forming food and 40% acidifying food.

  • Can you deacidify for a longer period of time?

    Acidification and deacidification is a continuous process. You may therefore permanently deacidify. If the symptoms are better, you can lower the dose to a lower maintenance dose.

  • What causes acidification?

    Acidification is caused by nutrition, stress, radiation, exhaust fumes, use of medication and excessive exercise.

  • My urine pH is good. Can my body still be acidified?

    You can indeed be acidified even though you have a good pH value. When waste products have deposited, you no longer measure them in your urine.

Alka® Drops (20)

  • How many drops should I put in my glass?

    4 glasses of water of approximately 250ml with 4 drops daily is the correct dose

  • Can I put more than 4 drops in one glass of water?

    You may put more than 4 drops in one glass of water. If you put more drops in a glass of water, the taste may become slightly more bitter due to the high concentration of minerals. In some cases it is advisable to add more drops, for example when the water from the tap is more acidic (pH value around 6 - 6.5).

  • What is the difference between Alka® Drops and a water ionizer?

    With a water ionizer you can separate tap water by means of electrolysis into acid and alkaline water. You must mount the device to your tap. The problem with a water ionizer is that the obtained pH value is sometimes insufficient for the body to make enough bicarbonate to actively dissolve waste acids (uric acids, cholesterol acids, fatty acids, lactic acids, etc.). With Alka® Drops you can determine the pH value of water yourself by adding more or fewer drops to water.

  • Are there any negative side effects when using Alka® Drops?

    Some people experience mild detoxification symptoms (tiredness, mild headaches) at first. These detoxification symptoms are a sign that the deacidification is starting. They disappear when most of the waste acids have been neutralized and removed from the body.

  • Can I use Alka® Drops as is, or should I first discuss this with my doctor?

    In principle you can use Alka® Drops without the advice of your doctor. However, you can always consult your doctor about the use of Alka® products.

  • How long can I do with a bottle of Alka® Drops?

    When using 16 drops per day (4 glasses with 4 drops per glass) you will do about 3 months with a bottle of Alka® Drops. There are approximately 1,440 drops in one bottle.

  • Can I also use Brita water (water filtered with a Brita filter) in combination with Alka® Drops?

    The Brita filter also filters many minerals, causing the pH value to be slightly lower. To get Brita water alkaline enough you will have to add 1 or 2 extra drops. If necessary, you can use pH strips to measure how many drops should be added to get the pH value of Brita water around 9. (pH value has a logarithmic scale which means that you have to add more and more drops to increase a pH point. From 6 to 7 is faster than from 7 to 8 and from 8 to 9, and so on).

  • Can I use Alka® Drops in (reverse) osmotic or distilled water?

    The answer is yes, but keep the following in mind: (reverse) osmotic water and distilled water is acidic, as this water is so pure that it absorbs carbon dioxide from the air. When you add Alka® drops, the carbon dioxide will act as a buffer, so that the pH value of the water hardly rises. You will therefore have to add more Alka® drops to the water to achieve the desired pH value of> 9. With a pH strip you can measure how many drops you need to add to a glass of distilled / osmotic water to reach a desired pH value.
