Moonstone’s unique combination of alkali citrate salts work by increasing urine citrate and pH to levels that help inhibit stone formation. Alkali citrate supplementation has been shown to reduce growth and recurrence of calcium-based stones, uric acid stones, and cystine stones. Alkali citrate binds with calcium, which helps prevent the calcium from binding with other molecules to form kidney stones. One packet of Moonstone contains 30 milliequivalents (mEq) of alkali citrate from citrate salts. Drinking Moonstone also helps you to stay well hydrated, which is essential to good kidney health.
Moonstone would benefit anyone with a history of kidney stones, or anyone concerned with maintaining kidney health. Moonstone is appropriate for patients who wish to promote kidney health without the use of prescription medications. Moonstone may also be a suitable alternative for patients who have low tolerance for potassium citrate pills. Moonstone alkalizes urine, reduces metabolic acidosis and, although it does not reverse CKD (Chronic Kidney Disease), it can help prevent its progression.
