Who should be using Acid Zapper®?
Acid Zapper is specifically designed to help competitive athletes. Users who experience the most dramatic results and benefits are those who test themselves at their anaerobic threshold. Acid Zapper helps competitive athletes sustain healthy pH balance and prevents hydrogen ion buildup by neutralizing acidic wastes. As a result, many athletes and coaches are also discovering that Acid Zapper is helping them push beyond their previous limits and achieve performance breakthroughs and new personal bests.
Why should competitive athletes use Acid Zapper®?
Competitive athletes need to be particularly concerned with maintaining healthy pH levels because they regularly place themselves under physical and dietary stresses that can lead to performance-compromising pH imbalances-most commonly low-grade acidosis.
As the competing athlete metabolizes fuel (food), acidic wastes are created and hydrogen ions can build up in the muscles. When, because of diet, prolonged aerobic exercise, and/or aging, the competitive athlete exceeds his or her natural ability to flush out or neutralize acidic wastes, acidic buildup or low-grade acidosis occurs. This slows metabolic processes and blocks the flow of replacement minerals, amino acids and electrolytes, causing muscle fatigue, cramping, energy loss, and other performance barriers.
What is Acid Zapper® with Alka-Myte®?
Developed especially for competitive athletes, Acid Zapper is a safe, natural daily health supplement that combats pH imbalance and excess hydrogen ion buildup in muscles. Acid Zapper helps competitive athletes maintain performance-critical pH balance for extreme, endurance and team sport competitions and everyday healthy living. With its patented Alka-Myte mineral formula, Acid Zapper naturally controls the acidic wastes that are generated when fuel (food) is metabolized during intense athletic exertion. Alka-Myte is a mineral-based, crystalline composition that has a significant alkalizing effect on the body which is important for optimal healthy living.
Is Acid Zapper® safe?
Completely natural and safe, Acid Zapper contains no steroids, stimulants, caffeine or sugars. All Acid Zapper ingredients are allowed by the United States Anti-Doping Agency (USADA) and are Generally Regarded as Safe (GRAS) by the FDA. Acid Zapper's active ingredient Alka-Myte was recently granted New Dietary Ingredient (NDI) recognition by the FDA. NDI is a safety and product uniformity component of the FDA's regulation of the dietary supplement industry.
Two pilot tests conducted by Tamer Laboratories found that subjects who used this compound for five days experienced an average decline in urinary acidity of 53 percent. Another Tamer Laboratories pilot test conducted at Seattle Performance Medicine showed that this acid-buffering compound significantly reduced muscle burn, increased time to fatigue, lowered lactate levels in the blood, and increased muscle strength and recovery in cyclists who participated in the test pilot.
How can I tell if Acid Zapper® is working?
Most competitive athletes keep close track of their performance results, and we encourages Acid Zapper users to compare their pre and post-Acid Zapper performance with the aid of pH strips, power meters and/or heart rate monitoring. Competitive athletes who suffer from low-grade acidosis and who test themselves at their anaerobic threshold are the product users most likely to experience the dramatic results using Acid Zapper.

How should an athlete use Acid Zapper® Tablets?
Acid Zapper Tablets are designed to break down in the digestive system over a 90-minute period. Tablets should be taken with water either one hour before or two hours after a meal. As a daily supplement it is recommended that you take one Acid Zapper tablet per 50 pounds of weight. For best results, athletes should split their daily dose, taking half to two-thirds of their tablets in the morning, just after waking, and the remaining half to one-third of their tablets in the evening, just before going to bed. Tablet dosage can safely be doubled during heavy training 3-4 days prior to and 1-2 days after a competitive event.
What are Acid Zapper® Granules?
Acid Zapper Granules are the most effective food and beverage acid neutralizer available. Acid Zapper granules do not affect the taste, flavor or aroma of foods and beverages. By adding granules to sports drinks athletes can more effectively glean the benefits of these drinks and electrolyte replacement products by neutralizing their acidity. Sports drinks and electrolyte replacement products are often very acidic (they typically have pH levels from 2.0 to 4.2 as supplied and mixed) and can contribute to low-grade acidosis in competitive athletes.
Adding ¼ of a level teaspoon (1,100 mg) of Acid Zapper Granules to an 8-ounce serving of sports drink increases its pH by at least 2pH units, meaning that approximately 99 percent of the drink's acidity is neutralized.
