AlkaPlex for Quicker Muscle Recovery from Exercise
AlkaPlex neutralizes the acids generated by sustained physical activity ("exercise-induced metabolic acidosis"), thereby increasing endurance ("raising the wall"), reducing muscle soreness, and promoting faster muscle recovery.
"I've been taking this product regularly for some time now, and it has made a hugely positive difference for me. I get sick less often. I don't have aches and pains after working out. I just generally feel better.*

AlkaPlex for Quicker Muscle Recovery from Exercise
Did you know reducing acidic waste from your body's cells can enhance your physical performance during:
- Daily activities like walking
- Mild to moderate exercise
yoga, golf, jogging, swimming, etc...
- Intense exertions like marathongs and triathalons
Report on Study of AlkaPlex with Elite Bicyclists for Quicker Muscle Recovery After Exercise
During high intensity exercise, lactic acid production impairs energy metabolism and muscle contraction. Theoretically, alkalizing agents, such as bicarbonate, restores the pH level, delays the onset of fatigue, and improves endurance during high intensity exercise. Improvements in lactate buffering and performance in sprints has been documented.
But less is documented relating to endurance at the anaerobic (metabolic acidosis) threshold (AT) or muscle recovery the day after exhaustive exercise.
The question being tested is: Can AlkaPlex®, a mineral supplement that is formulated to act as an alkalizing agent, improve the body’s ability to manage excess acids generated during high intensity exercise?
Improvements in managing acidic stress is measured by: (1) various physiological tests (i.e. VO2max, fractional utilization of VO2 at AT, maximal respiratory frequency, R value, pain scale, lactate and bicarbonate blood levels); or (2) improved endurance; or (3) improved muscle recovery after exhaustive exercise?
Elite Bicyclist Pilot Study Using Two Levels of AlkaPlex® Supplementation
By Emily Cooper, M.D.
Test Method and Findings
Two elite male cyclists performed a series of tests over a six-week period. Cyclist “A” was a 49 year old, nationally ranked, male triathlete weighing 150 pounds. Cyclist “B” was a 57 year old, competitive male athlete weighing 160 pounds.
Each athlete underwent three separate weeks of testing. Each week included a VO2 max and anaerobic threshold (AT) test on Day 1 (see definitions for more details about these measures), a “Time to Fatigue at AT” test (i.e. exercise at the predetermined AT for as long as possible for each athlete) on Day 4, and a muscular recovery test (i.e. number of leg presses at 2.7 times body weight after exercising to exhaustion on the previous day) on Day 5.
Athletes were tested first to determine a baseline with no AlkaPlex supplementation. This was followed by a week of testing using a low dose of 4 grams of AlkaPlex per day. A final week of testing used a higher dose of 2mEq/kilogram of body weight (about 11grams per day for a 150 pound athlete). Each testing week was separated by a week of rest.
Gas exchange testing was performed using the Cosmed K4B2 portable breath-by-breath analyzer. Lactate was measured using an Accusport Analyzer. Bicycle testing was done using a CompuTrainer with gearing set for the AT test on Day 1 and the “Time to Fatigue at AT test on Day 4. A Cybex leg press machine was used for the muscle recovery test on Day 5.
AlkaPlex supplementation significantly increased the time to fatigue for both athletes (258% for Cyclist A, 28% for Cyclist B).*
Lactate levels for both athletes (an indication of lactic acid processed during exercise) at exhaustion were not as high with AlkaPlex supplementation in spite of the increased work performed (17% lower for Cyclist A, 50% lower for Cyclist B).*
High dose AlkaPlex supplementation improved muscle recovery for both athletes (243% for Cyclist A, 110% for Cyclist B).*
AlkaPlex supplementation may lower the heart rate and respiratory rate of athletes as they exercise to exhaustion.*

A Daily Regimen for Enhancing Physical Performance
Use our caplets as a daily regimen to enhance your recreational or competitive physical performance, increase endurance, reduce muscle soreness and accelerate muscle recovery after exercise.*
Turn Your Drinking Water Into a Performance “Booster”
Most tap water and, yes, most bottled water - despite its advantages - is acidic, which further contributes to acid build-up in your body. Whatever your water source, transform it to an alkaline state by dissolving our AlkaPlex granules in it. It’s also effective dissolved in juices and energy drinks - in fact, as a bonus, it takes the acidic edge off of the taste of many beverages…even coffee and wine.*
Drinking alkaline liquids is especially important before, during and after exercise for the reasons stated above for our caplets. Think of alkaline water as a fast-acting physical performance “booster” that complements your regimen of caplets.
(Note: When you mix the granules in may observe some small, undissolved white specs - about the size of table salt crystals - floating in the water. They are hard bits of the calcium that serves as a “carrier” for the other alkalizing essential minerals in the AlkaPlex compound. They are tasteless and completely harmless.)

Acidosis: An Old Idea Validated by New Research
By: Joseph Pizzorno, ND, Editor in Chief
The idea that “being too acid” contributes to disease susceptibility, especially cancer, has been around for a long time in the natural/integrative medicine world. This concept was easily discounted by conventional medicine as measuring blood pH on various types of diets showed no change.
Up until about 10 years ago, no research existed to counter this skepticism. However, since then, a growing body of research has documented not only that “acidosis” is a real phenomenon, but that it is now known to contribute to a wide range of diseases, such as metabolic syndrome, cancer, osteoporosis, kidney stones, and increased susceptibility to environmental toxins—and new research is adding to the list. In this editorial, I will review the biochemistry the various food components, soft drinks, prescription drugs, and metabolic dysfunctions affect the acid/base balance of cells...

The Science Behind Root Cause ResponseTM
A patented system makes possible the encapsulation of three strong alkalizing minerals into microscopic crystals. Millions of crystals are then bound into a granule to deliver a controlled, time-release of the minerals into the body.
The result is both more effective and longer-lasting neutralization of excess body acid.* By delivering AlkaPlex into the body in a variety of forms (bare granules, caplets, capsules, creams, etc...), we can focus its effectiveness on a multitude of conditions.
Alkaplex could not exist if it weren't for this remarkable encapsulation process. And because this process is pateneted, only AlkaPlex has it, or ever will.
