Q. What is wrong with drinking baking soda water’ Isn’t that also alkaline water’
A. Baking soda is sodium bicarbonate.  Adding it to drinking water does not raise the pH value of the water.  If you drink it, the hydrochloric acid in the stomach will react with it and reduce the sodium bicarbonate to sodium chloride, sodium salt (NaCl), and water and carbon dioxide.  You just increased the salt intake. Since it does not increase the stomach fluid pH, the stomach will not produce hydrochloric acid like alkaline water does.  It is the production of hydrochloric acid by the stomach that also produces bicarbonate and interjects it to the blood stream as a byproduct.  Drinking baking soda water does not help the body but just add more sodium salt to the body.

Q. Which one is better for which condition’

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. Will your products help cataracts’

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’

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.
