Sodium bicarbonate has been one of my favourite health products for many years. It's cheap to buy, easy to use and amazingly versatile. Commonly known as Bicarbonate of Soda or Baking soda, it is basically a salt comprising of two elements : Sodium Cation and Bicarbonate Anion. It is a white solid and crystalline, but often appears as a white powder.
Here's a list of some of the ways in which you can use Bicarbonate of Soda :
*Soothes mouth ulcers.
*Whitens your teeth.
*Use as a deodorant.
*Relieves itchy skin and sunburn.
*Helps keep the body's ph level normal which may help prevent cancer.
*May slow the progression of kidney disease and improve kidney function.
*Whitens your laundry.
*Remove stubborn carpet stains.
*Save a scorched pot.
*Multi-purpose bathroom cleaner.
