What is Sodium Bicarbonate?
Sodium Bicarbonate, also known as baking soda or bicarbonate of soda, is a derivative of carbonic acid - a type of mineral acid formed from water and carbon dioxide. It is used as an artificial leavening agent and is also used for therapeutic purposes.
What does Sodium Bicarbonate do?
Sodium Bicarbonate, also known as baking soda, is used to relieve heartburn, sour stomach or acid indigestion by neutralizing excess stomach acid and promoting alkaline environments. However, a lack of hydrochloric stomach acid can give the same symptoms of indigestion as too much acid, so confirm before use.
