Baking Soda helps keep the body's pH alkaline. An acidic body cannot repair itself and cells don't like to reproduce. Staying alkaline helps keep you healthy.
I spent almost 30 years in clinical (medical) research, never heard such claim for Sodium Bicarbonate. May be it is the California culture. But no MD would recommend his patient taking Baking Soda, it is insane. It will affect the electrolyte balance of the body, significant to increase sodium body load, lead edema and high blood pressure.
It really makes no sense. I am pro choice; so I do respect it is your body your choice.
I am old school. Integrity is to do the right thing even when no one is watching.
