About

Kidneys filter all the waste of the human body out in form of urine, whose biochemical composition can be affected by underlying conditions such as infection, diet restricted to certain products, acidosis, vomiting/diarrhea, and even lack of eating and others. The maintenance of equilibrium in the human body is of prime importance for normal functioning. The pH of body fluids such as blood, urine, etc plays a vital role in this regulation. A disturbed pH can be a cause of diseases hence too high or too low acidic environments are both undesirable. Citralka 1.315gm/5ml Liquid 120 ml belongs to a class of drugs called “Urine Alkalinizers” used to treat highly acidic urine preventing the formation of kidney stones, metabolic acidosis, gout, urine infections, painful urination, etc. 

Citralka 1.315gm/5ml Liquid 120 ml is chemically composed of Sodium acid citrate, a urine alkalizer. Citralka 1.315gm/5ml Liquid 120 ml works by increasing the pH of urine making it less acidic (alkaline). Citrate contained in Citralka 1.315gm/5ml Liquid 120 ml is processed into Bicarbonates which helps raise urine pH by acting as an alkali. This helps remove the excess quantity of acidic substances in blood via urine such as uric acid, calcium salts, etc and prevents crystal formation that may subsequently turn into kidney stones. Maintaining an acid-base balance in the human body is important, care must be taken if you are also taking other medications, especially for your kidney disease to avoid possible interactions. 

Citralka 1.315gm/5ml Liquid 120 ml is available in a syrup form to be taken orally with or without food as prescribed by your doctor. In general, it can be taken alone or better if added to a glass of water/ fruit juice to make it taste better, 2 - 3 times a day or as suggested by the doctor in the prescribed dosage. Avoiding foods and medicines that make your body generate acidic substances will also help you.
