    Prelief - Akpharma Prelief - 300 Tablets

    Akpharma Prelief takes acid out of food. Many people are highly sensitive to food acid and it makes them profoundly uncomfortable. For some, food acid can cause occasional heartburn; for others, bladder pain and urinary urgency. However food acid affects you, Prelief can help. Prelief reduces the acid in all food and beverages so you can enjoy a more comfortable diet.

    Do the foods you eat sometimes give you painful bladder symptoms? Studies now confirm that it may be the acid in those foods giving you all that trouble. Akpharma Prelief is the only product that takes out food acid as you eat. Taking Prelief with foods can often stop them from causing painful symptoms.

    Some foods, almost all of them acidic or spicy, produce bladder symptoms, as reported by many people with painful bladder; some experts term these foods ‘trigger foods.’ They include coffee, fruits and juices, juice drinks, tomato sauce, wine and a great many others of nutritional importance, whose acidity is often not immediately obvious until the effects are felt.

    Prelief is an amazingly simple and safe alternative to drugs. Recent research links acid food sensitivities to IC/BPS flare-ups and confirms the beneficial effects of taking Prelief with trigger or provocative foods. Recent studies/surveys can be accessed with the latest health professional information concerning the beneficial uses of Prelief with provocative foods that trigger painful bladder.

    Urology studies are clear, and the fact that they confirm one another constitutes a scientific consensus regarding foods as a trigger cause of bladder problems as well as Prelief’s value as a means of changing those foods' problem properties. Where painful bladder symptoms are triggered by acid foods, nothing works on those foods as well as Prelief does and nothing is as satisfactory as no-side-effects, non-drug Prelief!

    Yes, Prelief takes the acid out of foods. Prelief even takes the acid out of favorite foods containing “hidden” acid you aren’t aware of, like chocolate, baked beans, sherbets, yogurt and too many others to even name. Try Prelief for a week or two and see if there isn’t a difference you can feel.

    Acid Reduction Chart


    What is Prelief?
    Prelief is a safe, effective over-the-counter product that removes the acid irritant from foods and beverages.  Prelief helps prevent the discomfort of food-caused heartburn and other food acid problems before they happen. In addition, each Prelief tablet delivers 6.4% of your calcium RDI, with uniquely absorbable calcium – far more available than from calcium carbonate. The calcium in Prelief is as readily available as the calcium in milk.

    Why is reducing the acid in food necessary?
    Many people are highly sensitive to food acid. For some, food acid can cause heartburn. In many cases of acid discomfort, the problem lies with obvious or unsuspected food acid. Removing the acid irritant out the food will allow most people to stay comfortable.

    How is Prelief different from the acid blockers?
    Prelief is the only acid fighter that is designed to take irritating acids out of the foods you eat, while leaving your protective stomach acid untouched. This is important because stomach acid is essential to both your digestion and your body’s defense mechanism against bacteria; stomach acid is actually a first stop in the body’s germ-defense system.

    How do you use Prelief Tablets?
    Take 2 tablets with each meal, snack or beverage. 2 tablets usually remove enough acid from most foods but more can be taken if needed.

    About Akpharma Prelief

    AkPharma Inc. makes Prelief, the dietary supplement that takes acid out of foods, as well as the pet product, CatSip a lactose-free milk for cats and dogs. AkPharma was founded in 1957 by CEO Alan E. Kligerman and has created many new food technologies since then.

    This is the company that brought you Lactaid Milk and Lactaid Tablets. The Lactaid brand is the world leader in lactose-reduced foods. In 1990, AkPharma introduced Beano, that fabulous enzyme for better digestion of so many healthful vegetables. Both Lactaid and Beano are now legendary products on the American scene.

    Prelief, AkPharma's newest development, is a dietary supplement that allows so many people to comfortably eat a large array of otherwise provocative foods. Many people are highly sensitive to food acid; for some, various foods can cause heartburn. In others, the acid in foods can exacerbate urinary problems or bowel distress. If you are among the many with either or both of these food-triggered responses, Prelief is the safe, effective over-the-counter product that can allow you to eat them and still stay physically comfortable. Take Prelief tablets as you eat or drink those foods, or put Prelief granulate in or on those foods, and Prelief binds up the acid in those foods and makes it harmless, as you eat them. Sounds simple, and it is; the differences to you and your comfort level are major.

    AkPharma has always been dedicated to the idea of creating products to help you comfortably maintain your health and quality of life by letting you eat a wider variety of healthful foods, and we have been remarkably successful doing that.


    Simply take one or two Prelief tablets when you eat acidic foods or sprinkle Prelief powder in or on those foods. It’s that simple and easy. Prelief works on foods like tomato sauce, pizza, orange juice, coffee, wine, beer, soda and many other acidic foods. Just one tablet or granulate packet in a 6 oz. cup of coffee reduces the acid by over 90%.

    I have gotten great results with this product. I am recently diagnosed with Interstitial Cystitis (Painful Bladder Syndrome) and Prelief has allowed me to have foods I had thought I'd have to give up forever! Taken according to directions, Prelief even makes it possible for me to once again have my morning coffee. I know these results won't be the same for everyone, but, for me...Prelief will always be close at hand.

    If you have frequent urination, I get that feeling from my interstitial cystitis, you have to take these pills. It makes a dramatic difference when you eat anything acidic, spicy, etc. I never thought I would get relief from my bladder pressure but I do with these taken at every possible acidic meal or with my cup of coffee. These are a God send! And Natural!

    My urologist recommended this product to take the acid out of my food. I asked what was in it and he told me baking soda, so I decided to try it. All I can say it works. My bladder spasms have been under control. The price is reasonable and it is not harmful in any way. Lucky Vitamin shipped it quickly and well packed. I was so glad to find them and it on line as my drug store no longer carried this product.
