What is the Difference Between Alka-Blast and 4(pHour)Salts??
Questions keep coming up about Dr. Young’s two formulas mentioned above. The following info should help. If you need any of these products, please contact me. Always glad to help and answer questions.
The Alka-Blast™ formula was created and designed to buffer exercise induced acids (such as lactic, orotic, pyruvic, acetic, uric and nitric acids), increase athletic performance, endurance & stamina, to increase energy within the body and to allow quicker recovery times.
Athletes know the harder you exercise and compete, the more acid builds up in your muscles. The increased use of muscle glycogen for energy produces many acids. Acidity reduces muscle power and physical endurance. As your muscles “go acid”, this creates fatigue and muscle burn, which you feel during intense exercise. The Alka-Blast™ formula helps you buffer production of Hydrogen ions and helps to prevent the acid buildup in your muscles so you can work harder for a longer period of time. Alka-Blast™ can be used on a regular basis (along with SuperGreens and Prime pH) to keep the body alkalized and to keep your alkaline reserves flush and full.
The 4 (pHour) Salts™ formula is a combination of four powerful mineral salts (sodium bicarbonate, magnesium carbonate, potassium bicarbonate, and calcium carbonate) that help maintain the alkaline design of human and animal organisms. These salts are naturally occurring in all fluids of the body. Specifically, they can aid in the reduction of acidity in the lymphatic and circulatory systems. 4 (pHour) Salts™ is the “ultimate” antioxidant, anti-fungal, anti-inflammatory, anti-carcinogenic and anti-aging salts. Specifically, they may aid in the reduction of dietary and metabolic acidity helping to maintain the alkaline design of the body.
When Dr. Young was recently queried about the difference between these two products his answer was:
“4 (pHour) Salts™ are four of the most powerful alkalizing essential mineral salts in the body consisting of sodium and potassium bicarbonate and magnesium and calcium carbonate design to help maintain the alkaline design of body. pHour salts has a pH of 8.3 with an electrical potential of over -250 mV to protect the body from the damaging effects of environmental, emotional, metabolic and dietary acid.
AlkaBlast™ are specifically chosen alkaline mineral salts of sodium chlorite and potassium hydroxide along with a proprietary alkaline mineral blend designed for the purpose of releasing electrical energy or electrons into the body for a “blast” of pure energy – hence, the product’s name. With a pH of 11.5 and an electrical potential of over -450 mV (!!) this product will help increase pure electrical energy while it is simultaneously reducing pain by reducing metabolic acids during physical activity.”
So, which products should you use? The answer is both products have very unique ingredients designed for specific outcomes. We can all benefit from what both products have to offer, right?
Can you use both? Absolutely…and many people do! While 4 (pHour) Salts™ should be a part of your daily preventative regimen, the energy providing and pain reducing benefits of Alka-Blast™ should not, and cannot, be overlooked.
FunFacts about these products:
Did you know that Alka-Blast™ is amazing at relieving heartburn and indigestion problems? It is a great product to initiate the “uninitiated” to the world of alkalizing and energizing with a tasteless and odorless (yet super-effective) alkalizing product. Did you know this product can essentially neutralize an acidic drink (such as coffee, tea or wine) without changing its taste? Did you know Alka-Blast™ can be used daily to increase the alkalinity of any food or drink?
Did you know that 4 (pHour) Salts™ has many uses other than to raise the pH in the blood and to protect the body? It can be used as a tooth scrub, a mouthwash and a deodorizer. Did you know that 4 (pHour) Salts™ can also be used as a general cleanser? Next time you want a relaxing and alkalizing bath, pour some 4 (pHour) Salts™ in the tub before you get in. It also makes a great foot soak and will relieve tired and weary feet!
P.S. Don’t forget that the SuperGreens come in capsules also.
