Baking soda is responsible for the transport of oxygen: dilates the blood vessels and releases the oxygen into the tissue, which means that increases the pH value.
Most of us at home, can find baking soda- a white powder that we usually use for cleaning or cooking. But, this white powder has another much more important role-it can save lives.
In the latest study of the University of Utah, scientists have revealed that older people, with low bicarbonate levels (an ingredient which can be found in baking soda) have a 24 per cent higher risk of dying an early death.
Results that were published in some medical magazines suggest that increasing bicarbonate levels can prolong a person’s life.
A team of scientists investigated how measurements of pH, carbon dioxide and bicarbonate are associated with long-term survival in healthy older people. They analyzed data from 2,287 participants. This data started being collected in 1997.
Even though it is not very unusual or rare, still, low level of bicarbonates is not a worldwide known medical condition. Baking soda is responsible for the transport of oxygen: dilates the blood vessels and releases the oxygen into the tissue, which means that increases the pH value.
Elevated pH value of urine prevents crystallization in the urinary tract.
It has been established that uric acid can cause diabetes, heart diseases, heart attacks, kidney stones, gout. Also fungi can produce a toxic compound named alloxan, which could cause diabetes and finally, cancer.
Very high acidic pH value leads to deterioration of the cells, which could be the reason of some very serious health problems, such as cancer, cardiovascular diseases, diabetes, osteoporosis, heartburn. The usefulness of baking soda can be supported by the fact that biological life has better function in a non-acidic (alkaline) environment.
The levels of bicarbonates can be elevated by eating fruits and vegetables or taking pharmaceutical baking soda.
The oral administration of sodium bicarbonate as a detox cleanse diminishes the severity of the changes produced by uranium in the kidneys. It can also prevent bladder infections, gout, arthritis, fever, and assist the activity of the pancreas for which is known that produces the most of the bicarbonate and also is responsible for the insulin production.
Be careful! For oral administration, use only pharmaceutical baking soda which does not contain aluminum!
