Alkalife, pH Balance, 90 Enteric Coated Tablets
By Alkalife4 Reviews
The length of time for the expiration date or "best used before" date depends on the type of product, as well as the brand.
Perishable items (such as flax oils or certain probiotics) generally have shorter expiration dates. Although our warehouse is fully air-conditioned, these more fragile items are put in cold storage (freezer or refrigeration unit) for maximum freshness.
Our receiving department does its best to verify and then enter the correct expiration dates for all incoming products. However, discrepancies do occur from time to time. This being said, the exceptionally high turnover at iHerb ensures that our inventory is among the freshest in the industry.
The Shipping Weight includes the product, protective packaging material and the actual shipping box. In addition, the Shipping Weight may be adjusted for the Dimensional Weight (e.g. length, width & height) of a package. It is important to note that certain types of products (e.g. glass containers, liquids, fragile, refrigerated or ice packed) will often require protective packaging material. As such, these products will reflect a higher Shipping Weight compared to the unprotected product.

pH Balance is a combination of potassium bicarbonate and sodium bicarbonate in a tablet form with a time-release compound. It is enteric coated to prevent it from dissolving in the stomach where it would be damaged by stomach acid. It dissolves slowly in the intestine to allow maximum absorption of bicarbonate into the bloodstream.
Potassium and sodium are stronger alkaline minerals than calcium and magnesium. In the body, potassium finds its way to the inside of cells while sodium stays on the outside. Potassium can neutralize lactic acid buildup in the muscles of athletes for better endurance.

iHerb Customer Reviews
Bicarbonate of soda is naturally released by your pancreas when food enters your small intestine. The bicarb serves three purposes - it neutralises the acid from your stomach, it aids with absorption of nutrients, and it gives your entire digestive tract a good cleaning. It's thought that the cleaning effect of bicarb aids in the production of good bacteria in your large intestine too. I have a pancreatic disorder which means both my enzyme production and bicarb production are impaired. I have to take pancreatic enzyme supplements in order to absorb food properly. I read a study of people with pancreatitis which found that pancreatic enzyme supplements were much more effective at digesting food when taken with enteric-coated bicarb. This was the only brand I could find that is actually enteric-coated, and I must say I'm impressed. It's done an excellent job. I absorb nutrients much better now, I can eat a wider range of foods without symptoms, my overall digestive health has improved, and I have a lot less cramping and pain. If you need to take enzymes, you have malabsorption issues, you have poor intestinal health or you have bacterial overgrowth, I'd highly recommend these tablets. They're completely safe and make a great adjunct to other digestive treatments. The one drawback of these tablets is that they contain titanium dioxide. I really wish they didn't, as it's a possible carcinogen. Pro-tip: Take the tablet at the beginning of the meal, with the first mouthful of food. That way when your food and other supplements reach your digestive tract it will already be full of bicarb and primed for absorption of nutrients.
This stuff is great. I have low acid but also low buffers. Whenever I'd take hydrochloric acid, apple cider vinegar, lemon juice in water, etc, to address the first issue, the second would become a problem. Food that was too acidic would move into my small intestine and cause pain and my whole system would feel acidic. Now I take magnesium chloride with meals and this ENTERIC coated bicarb….So it it opens in my small intestine and therefor doesn't neutralize the effect of the acid. Love it! (:
