Baking soda has an important role in alkalizing the body and acts as an agent that contributes to the pH balance. Moreover, baking soda can return the alkaline/acid balance in the body if the body suffers from excessively acidic condition and give you heartburn relief.
For most people, heartburn, acid reflux, and indigestion are not due to too much stomach acid (HCl), but a lack of it. If your stomach acid is not produced in enough amount, the food will stay in the stomach for hours and will churn for longer period.
When the food does not keep moving on through the GI tract, it sits in the stomach and ferments. This causes a level of discomfort that feels like reflux.
Baking soda helps to overcome the stomach acids. It prevents acid reflux. It also helps with heartburn, indigestion, and upset stomach. It works by lowering acidity level, thus reducing the possibility of stomach contents moving back into the esophagus. This in turn reduces the burning sensation in the throat and chest associated with this condition.
