Melcalin® Base

Pack: 84 tables
Net Weight: 68.88 g

Melcalin BASE is a food supplement containing minerals that contribute to normal acid-base metabolism, help maintain the health of bones, teeth, hair and nails and contribute to the protection of cells from oxidative stress.

Description:

The well-being of our body is reached when all the functions are in balance with each other and when its functional capacity has the right acid-base balance.
Most of the factors that can lead to an acid-base imbalance (hyperacidity) can be attributed to an unbalanced diet, stress, lack of essential nutrients (vitamins and minerals), intense physical activity, illness and physical inactivity. Melcalin BASE is an alkaline food supplement and assist the recovery and the maintenance of acidbase balance of the body by promoting the right amount of “bases”, essential for the maintenance of the physiological pH in the tissues.
Its use has considerable advantages for athletes as a useful supplement, especially in terms of improved performance, and its benefits can be experienced with both the acute intake (half an hour before the activity) and with a continuous intake (best results compared to acute intake)5,6,7,8,9. Its use has considerable advantages also in daily life, when stress may cause problems of gastric nature 10,11,12 or when, because of inadequate nutrition, we do not introduce sufficient amount of buffer substances (fruit and vegetables) exposing the body to a possible situation of acidosis. The loss of bone tissue is one of the problems in which we incur when tissue acidosis increases, the presence of buffer systems (Melcalin Base) lowers the levels of acidosis and helps to avoid such loss1,2,3,4.

Ingredients:

  • sodium bicarbonate
  • magnesium carbonate basic
  • calcium hydrogen phosphate
  • calcium carbonate
  • potassium bicarbonate
  • zinc gluconate
  • microcrystalline cellulose
  • corn starch

  • magnesium salts of fatty acids

Indications:

  • It improves the state of well-being.
  • It increases endurance and performance in physical activity and helps prevent injury caused by hyperacidity of muscles and connective tissue.
  • It has a balancing function in case of insufficient introduction of “bases” in the course of an unbalanced diet and helps to avoid bone depletion phenomena for buffer systems deficiencies.
  • It assists in recovery after illness.
  • It helps with problems of gastric nature.

Method of administration:

3 tablets, 3 times a day, taken before meals.
