While there are many kidney stone prevention products on the market, we believe that KSPtabs provides the most benefits and a proactive solution to a painful problem. KSPtabs were developed by a board-certified urologist who specializes in treating kidney stone patients. He realized that many patients were not compliant when it came to taking prescription medicine, changing their diets, or increasing their daily hydration intake (aka “drinking more water”). Preventing kidney stones is not simple, but Dr. Trotter‘s goal was to make it as simple as possible for his patients and other “stoners” around the country to have a tool in the fight against stone formation. “Stoner” is the word we like to use for those who are prone to kidney stones. If that describes you, keep reading!
Simple and Convenient
KSPtabs are great on the go! As opposed to pills that typically stay in your bathroom or kitchen, KSPtabs can easily be stored in your office desk, car, purse, medicine cabinet, or anywhere that will help remind you to drop one in your water. Our team wanted to provide you with the most convenient way to hydrate, so we chose an effervescent tablet that does not require stirring as a powder would. The tablets also minimize the mess that powders tend to leave. We suggest purchasing a box of 8 tubes and putting them in places you will see them throughout the day. All you need is water or your favorite beverage, and you are good to go. Also, our tubes are water-proof, so they’re great if you’re at the beach, on the lake, or at the pool. Kidney stones shouldn’t keep you from doing what you love!
Most products out there are tasteless or only come in pill form. Pills may seem simple, but they’re easy to forget, don’t provide hydration, and tend to cause nausea and stomach pain. KSPtabs are easy to drink and come in two delicious flavors; very berry and key lime. They make you crave water as opposed to hydration feeling like a chore. While you should still be drinking plenty of water throughout the day, KSPtabs allows you to change it up. KSPtabs are low in calories and provide healthy hydration to those who want more than just water and need an electrolyte boost. Most hydration products are high in sodium, which is great for replenishing electrolytes, but not so great for those who are prone to kidney stones. However, our product does contain a small amount of sodium bicarbonate. This mineral is what makes our tablets effervescent, and also raises urine pH levels. KSPtabs are vegan, gluten-free, and made with all-natural ingredients.
Vitamins and Minerals
Each KSPtab provides your body with 15 mEqs of alkalinizing agents such as potassium citrate, magnesium, and B6. These minerals are not stored in your body; therefore, they should be supplemented on a routine basis. These minerals optimize urine pH balance and support your kidneys. KSPtabs flush out your kidneys and rid them of crystal-forming substances. To learn more about the kidney stone inhibitors in KSPtabs and how they work, click here. We highly recommend all “stoners” to do a 24-hour urine test with their urologist to determine why you are forming kidney stones.
How should I take these?
KSPtabs are an over-the-counter supplement that can be found on our website, Amazon, and local pharmacies in Austin. We recommend taking at least two tablets a day, but if you are concerned, speak with your urologist for their recommended dosage. Add a KSPtab to a 12-16 ounce glass of water or your favorite beverage and wait for it to dissolve. The amount of water you use all depends on how strong you want the flavor to be. If you like ice in your water, wait until after the tab has dissolved. Ice cold water slows down the dissolve time!
