KSPtabs—a great alternative for kidney stone and gout patients who are not compliant with regular prescription protocols. If you have requested materials in the past and just looking for refills, please click here.
KSPtabs are effervescent tablets that contain Potassium Citrate, Magnesium Citrate, B6, and sodium bicarb for a total of 15 mEq of alkalinizing agents. These minerals help balance your urinary chemistry and reduce calcium crystal saturation (kidney stones). Since your body does not store these minerals, daily consumption of KSPtabs is needed for ongoing kidney health and protection.
They also promote hydration which is a key component as well. It is encouraged to consume water throughout the day but water can get boring. KSPtabs come in two delicious flavors that are all natural and easily dissolve in water or your favorite beverage.
Prescription pills can be very costly to patients (over $300/month). With a KSPtabs subscription, there are options for as little as 83 cents per day. Pills have been known to have a very low compliance rate and do not promote hydration. A common complaint is that water alone has no flavor and makes them feel bloated. KSPtabs not only delivers the citrate they need but in a refreshing and flavorful drink to keep them hydrated and kidneys flushed.
In the October 2021 issue of the Urology Gold Journal, an independent study was done on Complementary and Alternative Medicine Use in First-time and Recurrent Kidney Stone Formers. KSPtabs lead in alkalinizing agents and “had alkali content per serving similar to commonly prescribed pharmaceutical supplements.” Study Link
In the December 2021 issue of the AUA Journal, an independent study was done on over-the-counter alkali agents effect on urine pH and citrate excretion. “KSPtabs resulted in an increase in citrate (597 to 797 mg/day, p=0.037) and urine pH (6.46 to 6.86, p=0.037), with a non-significant decrease in ammonium (41 to 34 mmol/day, p=0.059).” Study Link
Study participants were chosen out of a population of patients from a Urology practice in Austin, Texas who was known to have a history of kidney stones. A 24-hour urine collection was tested through Litholink LabCorp before and after patients consumed KSPtabs over a three-week period (approximately three tabs daily). Results showed benefits in all major areas of stone prevention. Read about the study in its entirety.
Key Minerals & Ingredients
Citrate is a potent inhibitor of urinary crystal formation. Adding additional Citrate to the diet has been shown to support a normal urinary pH and reduce calcium crystal saturation or in real-world terms, kidney stones. (5 mEq)
Magnesium has also demonstrated benefits in maintaining healthy urine parameters by binding to oxalate in the urine. (5 mEq)
The B6 used in our product is Pyridoxal-5-Phosphate Monohydrate; which is a well-absorbed form of B6. P5PM is absorbed by the body in a more efficient manner. Having a good dietary intake of B6 is very important to overall wellness. Vitamin B6 has demonstrated benefits in maintaining healthy urine parameters. B6 may help lower oxalate levels in the urine.
Known potent alkalizing agent-like citrate which has been shown to reduce calcium crystal formation. (5 mEq)
Avocado Oil: Binds the tablets.
All-natural sweetener with minimal calories.
Our colorings are all natural – riboflavin is used for our Key Lime flavor and beet juice is used for our Very Berry.
