  • Prelief

    I found this article. It says that it is dangerous to take Prelief.

    http://icaf1031.blogspot.com/2011/05/prelief-alert.html

    Any thoughts? I always thought Prelief was very safe.

        I looked at the site --- in today's world anyone can develop an internet site and put anything they wish there. If you have any concerns at all about the Prelief product, please ask your doctor, rather than relying on someone's blog for information.

        I did a brief search to check on what calcium and phosphorus does; here's what I found:

        "Next to calcium, phosphorus is the most abundant mineral in the body. These two important nutrients work closely together to build strong bones and teeth. About 85% of phosphorus in the body can be found in bones and teeth, but it is also present in cells and tissues throughout the body. Phosphorus helps filter out waste in the kidneys and plays an essential role in how the body stores and uses energy. It also helps reduce muscle pain after a hard workout. Phosphorus is needed for the growth, maintenance, and repair of all tissues and cells, and for the production of the genetic building blocks, DNA and RNA. Phosphorus is also needed to help balance and use other vitamins and minerals, including vitamin D, iodine, magnesium, and zinc.

        Most people get plenty of phosphorus in their diets. The mineral is found in milk, grains, and protein-rich foods. Some health conditions such as diabetes, starvation, and alcoholism can cause levels of phosphorus in the body to fall. The same is true of conditions that make it hard for people to absorb nutrients, such as Crohn's disease and celiac disease. Some medications can cause phosphorus levels to drop, including some antacids and diuretics (water pills). Symptoms of phosphorus deficiency include loss of appetite, anxiety, bone pain, fragile bones, stiff joints, fatigue, irregular breathing, irritability, numbness, weakness, and weight change. In children, decreased growth and poor bone and tooth development may occur."


        One thing I have learned since I first joined the internet world back in 1994 is that for every possible treatment or medication, you will find horror stories.

        I consider Prelief to be the safest thing on my medication shelf.

          Oh for gods sake! This is just ridiculous!

          Prelief is, by far, the safest supplement on the market for IC and has been used by IC patients for almost two decades. I can't think of a single phone call I've received from ANYONE complaining about it. This is ridiculous!!

          Obviously if you take any supplement in excess, including stomach acid reducing products like TUMS, you can certainly cause problems but the normal dosage of Prelief has been proven safe and effective for over two decades.

          Sheesh!!! It sounds like she has a grudge against them??

              To All Concerned:

              This is a posting from Mr. Alan Kligerman, AkPharma's CEO and the developer of Prelief............

              Prelief is as safe as they get. Prelief is composed of calcium and Phosphorus in a molecular ration of 1:1, which is the identical ratio that you will find them in milk. If you are safe with calcium and you are safe with phosphorus, you are safe with Prelief. If you have calcium restrictions or phosphorus restrictions, then apply these restrictions to Prelief. As a rule of thumb, if you are able to drink milk (forget the lactose in milk for the moment; that is another story altogether!), then you can use Prelief. One Prelief tablet contains 65 mg calcium; one 8-oz glass of milk contains approx 280 mg calcium.
