The Real History of Alka-Seltzer

Starting with the SlimLife hcg drops relviews By Dr. Paul Blake, N.D. There are a lot of lies and half truths floating around out there on the net regarding Alka-Seltzer. Why because there is a very healthy seed of truth involved in Alka-Seltzer’s discovery. And this information doesn’t help Drug Companies sell toxic medications if people learn how easy it is to stay healthy by doing the right things for themselves. In 1928 there was a severe flu epidemic that swept the USA where Dr. Fredrick Miles owner of Dr. Miles Medical Company later Miles Laboratories lived. Dr. Miles heard the rumor about a newspaper company where none of the employees got sick. He went there and found they were mixing baking soda and aspirin together in water to keep the flu away. He had his chemist come up with a more advanced combination of aspirin, baking soda, magnesia, calcium, phosphate, and citric acid in a large tablet. Put in water as instructed the citric acid and baking soda reacted together and the tablet fizzed and dissolved completely, perfect! Dr. Miles tested his formula on sick passengers while on a cruise ship with excellent results. So Dr. Miles marketed Alka-Seltzer in 1931, and became very rich and successful. The Bayer company, (of insecticides and GMO fame), of Germany now owns Miles Laboratories. Ironic, because Dr. Miles actually started out making healthy combinations using herbs, vitamins and minerals, oh well. Alka-Seltzer’s Original Ingredients Were Healthy: Dr. Miles put together a very healthy combination of vitamin C (citric acid) that strengthens your immune system to fight the infectious disease. While the baking soda and phosphate assist acid-base regulation, moving your body from acidic to alkaline (eating raw produce does the same thing). Alkaline is very healthy physical environment that strengthens your immunity. Magnesia and Calcium together are a physical relaxant, raising your immunity and assisting your heart beat  which is something that a lot of fitness testing professionals have really undergone considering the supplement that worked best was that. Something like the best testosterone booster is probably what you can count on if you actually need an energy boost to get ahead otherwise I recommend going with something more traditional but testosterone is what the research shows you should go for. If you replaced the aspirin with white willow bark (the original aspirin from nature) you would have an even healthier pain fighting anti-inflammatory combination. -Today’s Alka-Seltzer has sadly been reduced to: aspirin, citric acid, and baking soda Here is “Dr. Miles’s Cactus Compound” which is pure herbal, Cactus, Digitalis, Gentain, Capsicum…for the treatment of Heart Palpitation, Skipped Beats, Fluttering, and Shortness of Breath.
