Sodium bicarbonate is a chemical salt that is the mineral nahcolite in its natural form. It can act as an acid and a base, however, in an aqueous solution, it can react as an alkaline.
Sodium bicarbonate aids in regulating pH level and keeps it stable. This process is known as buffering and keeps substances from becoming too acidic or too alkaline. Sodium bicarbonate has the power to neutralize the pH of any substance it comes in contact with. It is very helpful in many ways.
This is how you can use baking soda at home:
Cleaning drains, coffee makers, brushes and combs
Eliminating hair buildup
Make a homemade toothpaste
Make a deodorant
Refreshing your fridge
Easing itching and swelling
Putting out a grease fire
Crashing ice on a sidewalk/driveway
Besides using baking soda around the house, it is also beneficial for your health. Drinking it can significantly improve your health status. Moreover, you can mix it with other potent ingredients and boost the healing powers. You just need an aluminum-free brand of baking soda.
We are going to offer you three powerful and healthy baking soda tonics:
1. Tonic for boosting energy and replacing electrolyte
If you need a tonic for improving your energy and motivation, here it is. Baking soda is able to neutralize lactic acid buildup.
Half a teaspoon of unprocessed sea salt
¼ teaspoon of baking soda
7 cups of coconut water
Half a cup of lemon juice
¼ cup of raw honey
First, put the coconut water on low heat and mix baking soda until it dissolves. Then, add the other ingredients and pour mixture into a glass jar. Shake before using it. You can keep the resulted mixture for a week in the fridge.
Coconut water is rich in minerals like iron, magnesium, manganese, calcium and zinc. Also, it is rich in B-vitamins such as niacin, thiamin, riboflavin and pyridoxine. The potassium levels reduce during exercising, but coconut water is highly high in this mineral.
2. For relieving acid reflux
Having too little acid in your stomach causes acid reflux. Improve this by combining 2 tablespoons of raw apple cider vinegar into a 6-8 once glass of water. Then, add ¼ teaspoon of baking soda to this mixture. Drink it after the foam reduces.
3. Boost your metabolism with green tea and baking soda
You can improve the exercise effects and lose weight more quickly by drinking green tea regularly.
Catechins, theanine and caffeine are the three green tea compounds that are thought to promote weight loss. They put an obstacle to enzymes that are responsible for fat storage in the body.
Mixing the powerful properties of baking soda and green tea, you boost your fat burning power and support finest pH in the body. It is essential for balance.
Excess acid will be stored in fat cells when a pH factor is not optimal. A person that has too much acid in its body can’t burn fat well and also may feel fatigued and ill.
Try to consume organic green tea combined with ¼ teaspoon of baking soda to an 8 ounce cup each day.
