In brief: Not really

Unfortunately, if it was helpful, you would have to essentially subsist on the supplement, to keep your urine ph alkaline.
..Which is far more likely to create other health problems over the long run than prevent some kinds of kidney stones. Only effective method for prevention is maintaining good hydration. Not going overboard on soda (pop) might help also.
