Today we’re going to talk about the dangers and benefits of baking soda.
Baking soda is sodium bicarbonate. Your body actually makes sodium bicarbonate.
Different parts of the body have different pH levels. Even different parts of your digestive tract require different pH levels.
Sodium bicarbonate helps decrease the acid in your small intestine, which increases the pH and supports important digestive enzymes. If I needed to take enzymes, I would also take baking soda to help activate the enzymes.
Baking soda may also be helpful in certain cases for people with acid reflux or heartburn. However, it shouldn’t be taken often or over a long period of time.
Chronic consumption of baking soda can lead to certain side effects, including:
• Acid rebound
A better remedy for acid reflux or heartburn might be betaine hydrochloride or apple cider vinegar. This is because the typical root cause of these issues is actually a lack of stomach acid.
But, if someone has an ulcer or gastritis, betaine hydrochloride or apple cider vinegar will cause irritation. In these situations, baking soda might provide some relief.
Some interesting research is even being done on sodium bicarbonate for cancer.
Baking soda may also be beneficial for:
• Skin allergies
• Sinus problems
• Gout attacks
• Improving athletic performance
Overall, baking soda is a great potential remedy for certain problems. However, it’s also important to ask yourself why you need to take a natural remedy in the first place and work to fix the root cause of the issue.
