Frequently asked questions
What is the difference between Alka® tabs calcium and Alka® tabs original?
Alka® Tabs Calcium consists of calcium carbonate in pure form. The tablet dissolves in the intestines and enters the blood stream through the intestinal wall. By reaction with carbonic acid, the carbonate is converted to bicarbonate and thus increases the alkaline buffer. Additionally, pure ionized calcium is added to the body, which is good for the bones. On the contrary, Alka® Tabs Original is a tablet that already consists of bicarbonate. Alka® Tabs Original is immediately absorbed into the blood by the intestinal wall.
Alka® Tabs Calcium is a good choice for people who cannot take sodium and/or potassium or that suffer from bone decalcification.
What makes Alka® tabs calcium better than other calcium tablets?
Alka® Tabs Calcium has a gastro-resistant coating that prevents the calcium carbonate from being neutralized by gastric acid. This ensures that the calcium carbonate dissolves in the intestines.
Alka® Tabs Calcium is made up of pure ionized calcium. Many other calcium tablets contain impurities that have a negative effect when absorbed into the blood. The purity of a calcium tablet is important for long-term health.
Can I use the Alka® tabs calcium without consulting my GP?
