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 € 4.95. 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.

  • Can children also drink water with Alka® Drops?

    Yes, but adjust the dose for children to 2 glasses of water per day containing 4 Alka® drops.

  • After some time, a white deposit will appear in my glass when I have added Alka® Drops to the water. How is this possible?

    The white deposit that develops after a while is lime scale (calcium carbonate). This process depends on the calcium content in the water and proceeds as follows: by adding Alka® droplets, present calcium reacts with hydroxide ions (OH-) to form calcium hydroxide (CaOH). Calcium hydroxide then reacts with carbon dioxide (CO2) from the air to form calcium carbonate (CaCO3). This forms the white deposit in the glass. Calcium carbonate (lime) is not dangerous, but does not yield much in this form. It does affect the effectiveness as the pH value of the water decreases (OH ions are used in this limescale process). To avoid limescale build-up, keep the basic water closed so that it does not react with CO2 from the air. The fact why this happens more often with some (spring) water than with another is due to the calcium content of the different (spring) waters.

  • What is the difference between Alka® Tabs and Alka® Drops?

    The difference between Alka® Drops and Alka® Tabs is that with Alka® Drops the body itself produces bicarbonate via the stomach wall cells, Alka® Tabs contains bicarbonate that only dissolves in the intestines and is absorbed into the blood via the intestinal wall (so direct versus indirect supply of bicarbonate).

  • Is it possible to boil alkaline water? Does it still remain alkaline after cooking?

    Yes, alkaline water with Alka® Drops in it can then be boiled without affecting the pH value.

  • Can I combine Alka® Drops with Alka® Tabs?

    Alka® Drops can be combined with Alka® Tabs. Both products have the same goal: deacidification by adding bicarbonate to the body. The difference is that they do this in a different way. Alka® Tabs contains bicarbonate. Alka® Drops ensure that the body itself produces extra bicarbonates. A combination increases the dosage of bicarbonates and accelerates the deacidification process.

  • Can Alka® Drops also be used in other drinks?

    Alka® Drops can also be added to the tea or coffee to slightly increase the quality, so that it makes your body less acidic. This is independent of the amount of glasses of water or Alka® Tea with drops that you should drink daily. You can also heat the water without harming the effect, but as soon as you start mixing it with sugar (lemonade syrup) you will acidify the water again. Pure spring / tap water with Alka® Drops is most effective for your body.

  • When do I use the combination of Alka® Tabs Calcium and Alka® Drops?

    If you cannot use potassium due to the pursuit of a very constant potassium level (with heart medication), we recommend the Alka® Tabs Calcium in combination with Alka® Drops. In addition, people with osteoporosis or a calcium deficiency can also use the best Alka® Tabs Calcium in combination with Alka® Drops.

  • It is recommended to use Alka® Drops on an empty stomach. What is meant by as empty as possible?

    An empty stomach with Alka® Drops means about 20 minutes before a meal or 1½ to 2 hours after a meal.

  • Can I deacidify if I have a stoma?

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

  • 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 should then add more Alka® drops (5 to 6 instead of 4) to increase the pH value to 9 - 10. We recommend 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.

  • Can I also drink Alka® Drops as a preventive?

    You can drink Alka® Drops to prevent acidification. From the age of 40, your body will make less active bicarbonate, which means that waste products and accumulated acids are removed to a lesser extent. Daily deacidification to prevent acidic waste accumulation is still the best.

  • Can Alka® Drops also be put in a one litre bottle?

    That is certainly possible, but always drink a full glass from it. When you take a sip each time, not enough bicarbonate is produced by the body. Bicarbonate is the substance that ensures the deacidification.

Alka® Tabs Original (9)

  • What is the difference between Alka® Tabs and Alka® Drops?

    The difference between Alka® Drops and Alka® Tabs is that with Alka® Drops the body itself produces bicarbonate via the stomach wall cells, Alka® Tabs contains bicarbonate that only dissolves in the intestines and is absorbed into the blood via the intestinal wall (so direct versus indirect supply of bicarbonate).

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

    In principle you can use Alka® Tabs without advice from your doctor. However, you can always consult your doctor about using the Alka® products.

  • Should Alka® Tabs tablets be taken on an empty stomach?

    No, you can simply take Alka® Tabs tablets during or after a meal. The gastro-resistant coating around the tablets ensures that they only gradually dissolve in the intestines. This is a very effective and safe way to add bicarbonate to the body. Note: you cannot take Alka® Tabs with basic water (water Alka® Drops) as basic water will affect the coating of Alka® Tabs.

  • What is the difference between Alka® Tabs Originals, Alka® Tabs Calcium and Alka® Tabs Magnesium?

    Alka® Tabs Calcium consists of calcium carbonate in pure form. The tablet dissolves in the intestines and enters the blood through the intestinal wall. There, by reaction with carbonic acid, calcium carbonate is converted into calcium bicarbonate, thereby increasing the alkaline buffers. Pure ionized calcium is also added to the body, which is good for the bones. Alka® Tabs Original is a tablet that already consists of sodium bicarbonate and potassium bicarbonate. This is directly absorbed into the blood via the intestinal wall. For people who are not allowed to have sodium or potassium, or people who suffer from osteoporosis, Alka® Tabs Calcium is a good choice. Alka® Tabs Magnesium consists of magnesium carbonate in pure form. The tablet dissolves in the intestines and enters the blood through the intestinal wall. There, by reaction with carbonic acid, the magnesium carbonate is converted into magnesium bicarbonate, whereby the basic buffers are increased. Pure ionized magnesium is also added to the body. Alka® Tabs Magnesium is a good choice for stress, muscle complaints or insomnia.

  • Which of the three types of tablets is the best deacidifying agent? Alka® Tabs Original, Alka® Tabs Calcium or Alka® Tabs Magnesium?

    It doesn't matter which shape you choose. The deacidifying effect of all 3 types is the same. The composition is different because some people prefer to get more Calcium or Magnesium. If you would like to know which tablet suits you best, please contact our coaches.

Alka® Deo (11)

  • For whom is Alka Deo suitable?

    Alka® Deo is suitable for every body and armpit. Everyone sweats and develops the smell of sweat from puberty on, some more than others. By choosing to produce Alka® Deo with a soft smell, we offer you a gender-neutral deodorant that can be used by both adolescents and adults.

    Alka® Deo is vegan and has not been tested on animals, so the deodorant is suitable for vegans and animal lovers.

  • Can I use Alka Deo even if I have skin problems?

    Alka® Deo can also be used when you have skin problems or sensitive skin. The high pH value makes it particularly skin-friendly. An alkaline environment is like an oasis of well-being for our skin, allowing hydration and rejuvenation while preventing the growth of harmful bacteria. The formula contains no allergens, the  natural oils and alkaline ingredients make Alka® Deo particularly skin-friendly.

  • What does Alka Deo smell like?

    We chose to produce Alka® Deo with a light, fresh and gentle smell that reminds us of coconuts, lily of the valley and almonds.

  • My deodorant stick is hard  and difficult to use

    The ambient temperature can affect the spread ability of your Alka® Deo. If the temperature is low, the stick may be a bit hard and a little more difficult to use.  If Alka® Deo is held against the armpit for 10 seconds, the temperature of your body makes it softer again. This little trick allows you to use Alka® Deo easily.

  • Are natural deodorants really better?

    "Better" is a serious word, but if you ask us and our customers, then yes! Alka® Deo is a natural anti-odorant that keeps your armpits fresh and uses only the power of nature.

    With Alka® Deo we want to offer you an alkaline alternative to the normal deodorant: super effective, very alkaline and developed for the wellbeing of your skin and your body. Alka® Deo is not like other natural deodorants: it neutralizes bacteria to prevent the development of unwanted odors while protecting and nurturing your skin.

  • Why do normal deodorants  cause stains on  my  clothes?

    Spoiler alert: It's the aluminum! Alka® Deo is 100% aluminum free; So there are no stains.

    But back to the beginning: Why do stains occur at all? Honestly, deodorants do not cause stains if they are really ONLY deodorant. These stains occur when  the proteins in your sweat react with aluminum (chloride) and other chemicals in your antiperspirant.

  • Why do most manufacturers use aluminum?

    Due to the aluminum connections, the cells in our welding ducts swell and prevent sweat from being released.

    Alka® Deo is neither an antiperspirant nor does it contain aluminum.

  • I am pregnant. Is it safe to use Alka Deo?

    First of all, congratulations from all of us at Alka!!

    Second, even more good news: Alka® Deo is 100% natural and completely harmless. It does not contain any ingredients that can harm you, your body or your baby.

    However, since most pregnant women want to be especially sure which products they use, it's important that you know: Alka® Deo contains no nanoparticles: nothing gets into your body. It stays on the outer layer of your skin.

    In addition, due to the lack of aluminum, Alka ® Deo does not block pores or glands, so your body's natural temperature regulation is preserved.

    And if you want to be double or even triple safe, you can check the ingredients of Alka® Deo on our website to see if there is anything there that you might be allergic or sensitive to.

  • Should I expect a detox phase when I switch to a natural deodorant?

    We recommend trying Alka® Deo for at least two weeks. If you have used an antiperspirant, your body has to excrete the aluminum salts that clog the pores under your to function normally again.

  • Can I use the deodorant on sensitive skin?

    Yes. Our formula has been developed for all skin types and the high pH value makes it particularly skin-friendly. An alkaline environment is like an oasis of well-being for our skin, allowing hydration and rejuvenation while preventing the growth of harmful bacteria.

  • Are all deodorants vegan and cruelty free?

    No, not all deodorants and antiperspirants are vegan (and/or cruelty free).

    It's easy to check if your deodorant is vegan. Take your stick or spray can and look for one of the following ingredients:

    • Lanolin
    • Glycerol
    • Oleic acid (a.k.a. Oleyl stearate, oleyl ,oleate or tallow)
    • Stearic acid
    • Elastin

    If you find one of them in the synopsis, you are NOT holding a vegan deodorant in your hand.

    By the way: There are great vegan alternatives for all these ingredients, so they are really not necessary.

    Another thing: There is also some confusion about the fact that vegan products are equal to cruelty free. However, there are vegan products that are still being tested on animals.  Conversely, being cruelty free does not guarantee that a product is vegan.

    With Alka® Deo you don't have to worry: Alka® Deo is vegan and cruelty free. Exclusively tested on human armpits.

Alka® pH Test strips (5)

  • The pH value of my urine is lower (more acidic) 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 hardly ever happens.

  • The colors of the strip do not match the color chart. What does this mean?

    The three colors on the test strip measure the OH¯ ions or the pH value of the urine. The pH test strips measure to an accuracy of 0.5. The most similar color on the chart is the pH value of your urine. Sometimes it may be that 2 colors are indicated, for example, pH 6 while 1 color points more towards pH 5.5. Then the pH value is 5.8.

  • How often should I measure the pH value of my urine?

    That is up to you. Some people measure weekly while others never measure their pH.

  • How come that the pH value of my urine fluctuates so much?

    Measuring with a pH strip is like taking a snapshot, it measures the moment. Factors (such as stress and nutrition) can influence the pH value.

  • My urine pH is alkaline. Can I still be acidified?

    You can indeed be acidified even though you have an alkaline pH value. When waste products have been deposited in the body in a solid form, you can not measure them in your urine any longer, as they arent in there.

pHPets® Drops (20)

  • Can my pet also drink alkaline water?

    We have developed special alkaline drops for pets, the pHpets. These drops have the same deacidifying effect as our Alka Drops in humans.

  • What is the difference with the Alka® drops for humans?

    The composition is different. The Alka® Drops contain 2 acidity regulators and the pH Pets contains 1 acidity regulator.

  • What animals are pHpets® Drops suitable for?

    pHpets® drops are made specifically for dogs, cats, rabbits and rodents. pHpets® drops can also be safely used for a large number of other animal species. The pHpets® drops are not suitable for fish and birds. If you want to know whether pHpets® drops are suitable for your pet, you can contact our customer service.

  • Can I also give my pets pure/undiluted drops?

    No, never give your pet undiluted drops! pHpets® is very strongly alkaline (pH 13.5), so that the drinking water of your pet receives the desired pH value after you add the drops. This means the drops are much too strong to consume undiluted. Undiluted drops can lead to things like a strong burning sensation for your animal.

  • What to do if you put too many drops in the water?

    If too many drops are added to the water, the water will become more alkaline than the desired pH value of 10. Ultimately, the taste of the water will change and the chances are that your animal will no longer want to drink it. With drinking water bowls from 250 ml, 1 to 2 drops too much is no problem. With smaller drinking water bowls, or with more too many drops, it is better to change the water and add more drops

  • Can I give my pet alkaline water for preventive purposes?

    Your pet will benefit greatly from drinking alkaline water as a preventive measure. Sooner or later every animal will acidify with all its consequences. De-acidifying on a daily basis to prevent acidic waste accumulations still remains the most effective! Prevention is therefore better than waiting until the animal is acidified.

  • Can my pet taste or smell the pHpets® drops?

    pHpets®​ drops are tasteless, colourless and odourless. Your pet will not notice the drops in its drinking water.

  • How often should I change the drinking water with the pHpets® drops in it?

    If the water with the droplets is left in it for too long, the water will slowly become less alkaline through contact with oxygen in the air. It is therefore important to change the water in time for optimal operation. Our advice is to refresh the drinking water twice a day and add more drops.

  • How long can pHpets® drops be used?

    pHpets® can be used indefinitely. New waste acids are created in the body every day. Continuing to deacidify daily offers an optimal counterbalance for your animal.

  • Can pHpets® drops be used if the animal is pregnant or nursing?

    As far as is known, this product can be used without objection during pregnancy and lactation. Always discuss this with the attending veterinarian.

  • What are deacidification symptoms? Can my animal suffer from this?

    Sometimes animals can suffer from deacidification symptoms in the beginning, such as fatigue, an increase in the original symptoms or changes in the stool. Deacidification phenomena arise because the breakdown of waste acids is greater than the body can process in its own way. Although these complaints may be unpleasant for the animal, it is a good sign. How long the deacidification symptoms persist depends on the amount of waste acids in the body. They usually disappear after a week.

  • How long will it take to see an effect on my pet?

    Depending on the animal and the reason for which pHpets® drops are taken, the time after which an effect is noticeable differs. This is usually between 2 weeks and 2 months.

  • What should I do if the pHpets® drops have gotten directly on the skin, muzzle or eyes?

    If the animal comes into contact with undiluted drops, this can give the animal a strong burning sensation. In case of contact with the skin or muzzle it is sufficient to rinse well with water. In case of contact with eyes, rinse well with water and have it checked by a veterinarian to be sure.

  • Are there any side effects of using pHpets® drops?

    See also the question about deacidification phenomena. Some animals may initially experience mild detoxification symptoms (e.g. fatigue, change in stool). These detoxification symptoms are a sign that the deacidification is starting. They disappear when most of the waste acids have been neutralized and disposed of.

  • Why not dissolve baking soda in water to drink?

    It is best not to dissolve baking soda in water, because your stomach will convert it into water (H2O), carbon dioxide (CO2) and sodium chloride (NaCl). The salt formation can increase the blood pressure. Alka® products have been developed to counteract this undesirable effect.

  • Can pHpets® drops be given with other food supplements and / or medicines?

    No interactions are known with other dietary supplements and / or drugs. Always consult the attending veterinarian if you want to give pHpets® drops in combination with medication to your pet.

  • Do pHpets® drops contain allergens?

    pHpets® drops is free from allergens.

  • Does my animal need pHpets® drops?

    Sooner or later every animal will start to acidify with all its consequences. Prevention is therefore better than waiting for an animal to become acidic. pHpets® is therefore recommended for every animal. If an animal has already been acidified, deacidification with pHpets® is the way to solve this again.

  • What is the dosage of pHpets® drops based on? Every animal is different, right?

    For optimal deacidification it is important that the animal's drinking water receives the correct acidity (9.5 - 10). This acidity is the same for all animals. The amount of drops needed therefore only depends on the amount of drinking water into which the drops are put.

  • What to do if you forget to give a dose to the animal?

    pHpets® drops can also be added to the water afterwards. However, never double the dose at once, as this could make the water too alkaline. If the water becomes too alkaline, the taste can change and the animal does not want to drink it anymore.

Alka® Acid-Base Detox plan (4)

  • Which products are included in the 30-day detox plan?

    1 x Tabs Original 90 tablets, 1 box of tea with 50 tea filters and the alkaline minerals with 120 vegan capsules.

  • Can you also use the 30-day detox plan more often in succession?

    Yes, that's possible. By doing so you actively de-acidify your body, remove waste products and make up for shortages.

  • Can Alka® Drops also be used during this detox plan?

    Alka® Drops can also be used during the use of this detox plan. This intensifies the deacidification process.

  • Can I also use the alkaline skin products during the detox plan?

    You certainly can. By doing so you de-acidify the body from the inside as well as from the outside. Very beneficial.

Alka® Foot & Nails (3)

  • Do I have to follow the detox plan every day?

    It's okay to skip a day every now and then when that's convenient. But for the best result, the (almost) daily foot baths are recommended.

  • The plan is over, it is going well, but the complaints are not completely over yet. What should I do?

    After 21 days of treatment, you can buy the Alka products separately and then continue until the desired result.

  • I started the Alka Foot & Nail detox plan and feel tired. Is that normal?

    Yes that can happen. Fatigue is a deacidification phenomenon, a sign that waste acids are released. This will pass after a few days.
