Pure sodium bicarbonate has been proven scientifically to have amazing health benefits. It looks like baking soda, however in order to have medicinal value and effect on your health, you need to consume pure sodium bicarbonate.

There are many benefits of adding sodium bicarbonate into your drinks and foods including pet water. You can add it to your plants, creams, lotions, washing, detergents, bath soaps and household cleaning. It prevents moulding and bacterial growth. 


Acidity causes many diseases


What is Acidity inside our bodies?

Acidic environment in the body causes corrosion inside the body like rusting on a metal. It causes oxidative stress in a cellular level due to acidity.

Increase in consuming acid forming foods, drinks, and medications and the condition of acidic environment in the body has led to many health conditions like common flu, arthritis, heart disease, cancer, and a weakened immune system.

Acid plays a part in many illnesses like osteoporosis, gout, diabetes, lactose & gluten intolerance, celiac and crohn’s disease, candida (yeast infections), autoimmune disease and gut related conditions like kidney and gout stones.

Alkaline environment determines genetic appearance and acidotic environment triggers disorders like Parkinson’s Disease, Alzheimer’s disease, Muscle Dystrophy and cystic fibrosis.


Alkaline environment in our bodies


What is an alkaline environment inside our cells, tissues and extracellular fluid?

Healthy alkaline environment in extracellular fluid enables cellular breathing, enabling nutrients in and toxic waste out of the cells. It also prevents viruses and bacterias entering into the cell. It prevents moulds and bacterias growth. 



What is sodium bicarbonate?


Sodium bicarbonate is a salt that breaks down to form sodium and bicarbonate in water.

This makes a solution alkaline, meaning it’s able to neutralise acid. Therefore alkaline solution can neutralise an acidic solution. It supports body’s electrolyte balance and maintains normal acid-alkali balance.

Firstly, Sodium bicarbonate’s ability to neutralise acid helps treat conditions related to high acidity in bodily fluids, such as indigestion, which is caused by too much acid in the stomach. It relieves symptoms of heartburn, gout and acidic reflux.

Secondly, Sodium bicarbonate helps your body to restore electrolytes. It alkalises your cells and tissues in urinary tract and cystitis and relieves the pain associated with urination. It helps the symptoms of burning sensation and irritation upon urination, especially when associated with medically diagnosed cystitis.

Thirdly, it helps to alleviate pain and reduces the muscle cramps.It reduces and helps with muscle inflammation and muscle tension and stiffness. Sodium bicarbonate enhances the muscle performance, endurance, and stamina. It can help to improve the muscle recovery time after exercise session. 

Lastly, Sodium bicarbonate helps maintaining body’s health and fights against viruses and bacterias and fungus by making the environment alkaline.


Acidity and Alkalinity 


Acidity and alkalinity levels can be easily measured by pH and Alkalinity strips from extracellular fluid like saliva and urine. Saliva is more accurate in determining the level compared to urine because urine is excreted amount of toxins and water.

pH measures the hydrogen particle amount in your body, whereas alkalinity measures body’s ability to bind the acidity in order to keep it alkaline. 

True alkaliser neutralises all the acid and still maintains pH of neutral = 7.4. Pure sodium bicarbonate powder can alkalise very acidic liquid like CocaCola.


Easy solutions to have alkaline body


However, drinking soda water (pure sodium bicarbonate mixed with natural water) is a great natural remedy for many ailments. Even just mixing a small amount of soda in a glass of water can help to relieve heartburn, indigestion, soothe ulcer and tooth pain, balance pH levels in the body, and even help cure a cold quicker.

If you regularly exercise at the gym or train for sports, you know that it is important to keep your body well hydrated. Through sweating sodium is excreted from the body, and can hinder how quickly muscles recover and lead to exercise-related injuries. Therefore, it is important that hydrating water contains the right amount of minerals and alkalises the body.

Sodium bicarbonate water can easily hydrate your body after strenuous exercise and improve the recovery.
