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 may be used to neutralize excess stomach acid and promote an alkaline environment. However, a lack of hydrochloric stomach acid can give the same symptoms of indigestion as too much acid, so confirm before use.
Take not less than 1 to 2 hours before or after meals, with a full glass of water or as directed by a healthcare professional.
Talk to a doctor before use if: you have ever had any problems with your kidneys or liver, you suffer from high blood pressure or heart problems or you are on a controlled low salt (sodium) diet.
Do NOT take when full from food/drink. Only take a small amount.
As antacids inhibit folic acid absorption you may be advised to supplement with folic acid.
