Sodium bicarbonate is a fancy way of saying baking soda. Not only a common leavening agent in baked goods, this substance has many additional uses that may surprise you.
Recent research has looked at how this common household ingredient may have extraordinary effects on the body, such as supporting a healthy, immune system, kidneys, joints, and more.
Let’s dive in and take a look at a few of the many uses of sodium bicarbonate.
Sodium Bicarbonate and Electrolytes
Athletes love sodium bicarbonate because it helps achieve optimal levels of hydration and electrolytes in the body.
Sodium and bicarbonate are two electrolytes that help the body maintain acid-base balance and move carbon dioxide through the bloodstream. This is especially important after intense exercise, when proper recovery is essential to mitigating muscle cramping and soreness.
Hydration is an important part of living a vivacious and healthy life. That's why Bobelo includes the ideal amount of electrolytes and acidity balance so you can maintain optimal hydration levels, improve nerve and muscle function, and feel great.
Sodium Bicarbonate and Digestion
For a healthy person, drinking a solution of sodium bicarbonate prepares the stomach to digest its next meal. Because sodium bicarbonate is a basic solution, it triggers the stomach to increase acid production so pH levels can be maintained. With the newly produced acid, the stomach is better equipped to break down incoming food. As such, a small dose of sodium bicarbonate may improve daily digestion.
Sodium Bicarbonate and Autoimmune Disease
An autoimmune disease occurs when the body’s immune system attacks its own organs, tissues, and cells. When a person with an autoimmune disease takes a sodium bicarbonate solution, the spleen (the blood filter of the immune system) reduces its autoimmune response. This results in reduced inflammation in the body.
“In the spleen, as well as the blood and kidneys, they found after drinking water with baking soda for two weeks, the population of immune cells called macrophages, shifted from primarily those that promote inflammation, called M1, to those that reduce it, called M2. Macrophages…are early arrivers to a call for an immune response. ”
Sodium bicarbonate may be a potential treatment for inflammation and autoimmune diseases. Check with your doctor before using sodium bicarbonate as treatment.
