Alkin Syrup is a medicated formulation that is indicated for use as an acid alkaliser. Urinary tract infections and cystitis both fall in the category of recurrent diseases of the urinary system. This syrup majorly contains citric acid which is responsible for reducing the pH of urine and rendering it to be less acidic. This not only helps in reducing the painful urine discharge by alkylating the urine but also does not allows the microbes to colonise and divide in the urinary tract as pH is increased. It basically causes the flushing of the urinary tract.
The other important role of citric acid is that it prevents the formation of new stones in the kidney as presence of excess urate in the crystal form in urine leads to the condition of hyperuricaemia.
