Baking Soda; the miracle.

Baking soda or Sodium Bicarbonate is derived from the natural mineral called Natron.

Humans produce acid with almost all bodily functions. Acid helps in many of the processes our bodies under go to keep us alive and healthy. The thing we often do not realize is the over abundance of Acid that is detrimental to our over all well being.

This over abundance of acid can cause many different problems from heart burn to longer term negative health effects such as osteoporosis. Also, feelings of inflammation and gas are irritated by acid and actually cause a lot of the fatigue and headaches we as humans tend to experience on a day to day basis.

That is where the alkaline chemistry and all of its divinity come into relieve our pain caused by an extreme imbalance in our pH levels.

The opposite end of this acid-alkaline spectrum can be found in baking soda, a cheap, inexpensive, easily accessible mineral derivative. A small amount mixed in with water can reduce the un-ease and rawness of high acidic levels.

There are other benefits of ingesting a small amount of baking soda from reducing and eliminating acne, to calming an upset stomach. Also, of course the use of baking soda as a cleaning ingredient. Eliminating stains from teeth and also as a gentle exfoliant for the skin. Because of its anti-septic properties baking soda, or sodium bicarbonate is a miracle that we often overlook.

Being more aware of our pH levels on the acid-alkaline scale is a huge asset to further our health and overall life. Of course to much of this mineral derivative can also have poor effects as with any other induction to our living bodies. The key here is balance, how every scale should be placed.
