What's In Baking Soda?

The natural ingredients in baking soda provide its neutralizing effects to help detoxify the body and relieve infections or inflammation. The neutralizing properties also make it a natural option for household cleaning to remove stains or rid areas of odors.

The main ingredient in baking soda, also called sodium bicarbonate, is sodium. There are about 150 milligrams of sodium in an eighth of a teaspoon of baking soda, or about 600 mg in a serving size.

Since baking soda is taken orally for disorders such as stomach problems or coughs, people on sodium-restricted diets should consult a doctor and take sodium bicarbonate with caution.

The sodium helps baking soda to dissolve easily in water. Anyone taking it orally mixed with water should wait for the baking soda to completely dissolve before consuming it for its full effectiveness.

Sodium bicarbonate also contains hydroxide that provides the alkaline properties, which often help heal imbalances in the body that may cause heartburn, acid indigestion or upset stomach. The fizz when mixing baking soda with water is from the carbon and oxygen that form carbonate.

The alkaline properties of baking soda help neutralize and balance acids in the body to relieve ailments. These same properties work in household cleaning by absorbing unwanted odors without harmful chemicals or toxins. Baking soda can also be found in beauty products as a skin exfoliant.

As a home remedy for health problems, baking can should be taken over short periods of time to relieve acute conditions. Taking it regularly for more than a couple of weeks can deplete the body of essential vitamins and minerals.
