How it works
Potassium Magnesium Citrate works by makes some changes in the urine and alkalizes the stone-forming salts such as calcium phosphate, calcium oxalate, and uric acid thereby dissolves the kidney stones. It also raises urinary pH and makes the urine less acidic. Pyridoxine helps to reduce oxalate production and thus prevents kidney stone formation.
