It can be used to counteract the gastric acidity, the burning sensation that may happen after very heavy meals or due to an excess of coffee or alcohol, stress and bad habits such as eating fast. The baking soda has in fact an alkalizing effect able to counteract the acidity and, in addition to this, it acts also very quickly but it has contraindications, as it will be explained better in the following. But now, how to take baking soda? Take a glass of water and pour 1 teaspoon of baking soda together with the juice of a lemon. Mix and drink a couple of hours after meals, in this way you’ll also help the liver to purify and remove toxins circulating in the body. However, this is intended as an emergency remedy and should not be understood as a treatment prolonged over time because the risk is to obtain the opposite effect since, due to a too alkaline environment, the stomach should produce more acidity. Moreover, the effect is short. Bicarbonate soda should be avoided during pregnancy, high blood pressure and kidney problems. This remedy, drunk a couple of times a day, also helps against cystitis, in fact, the baking soda prevents bacteria from attaching to the walls of the bladder and fights inflammation, however, the considerations already seen are the same.
