Baking soda is one of the most popular household products used nationwide to clean, scrub, polish, wash, cook, bake, deodorize, and yes, even use to neutralize the unpleasant burning sensation of heartburn.
Just open the fridge of about any American citizen living in the United States, and you will probably discover, discreetly hidden behind the groceries, the well-known orange box Arm & Hammer Baking Soda.
This product increasing popularity for multiple uses goes way beyond eliminating fridge orders.
Nowhere on this planet will you find a cheaper price for a product that will effectively whiten your teeth.
If you want whiter teeth just sprinkle the powder on top of your tooth paste and brush.
You will immediately experience a feeling of cleanliness in your mouth and within a few days of repeating this process you will notice your teeth getting whiter. Please note that, Arm & Hammer sells a formulated whitening toothpaste. But for myself, I have found it more effective at whitening my teeth by sprinkling the powder on top of my favorite tooth paste when brushing.
It' s also a great product to use when heartburn occurs.
I remember after eating breakfast in a restaurant, I started to get heartburn. Feeling uncomfortable, I immediately walked towards the front counter asking the waitress if they had something to soothe the pain of heartburn.
The cook kitchen who overheard the conversation, concocted a drink and told me to drink it slowly. After only a few minutes, my heartburn disappeared.
When asking him for the recipe, he told me that he simply mixed 1/2 tablespoon of baking soda in a glass of water and added carrot juice to enhance the flavour.
Since that episode, I experimented with several different mixtures. I have notice better results when combining the Baking soda recipe for heartburn with natural vegetable juice like carrot, broccoli, celery or spinach instead of mixing it with fruit juices like orange, banana, strawberry and apples.
I prefer using this product instead of antacid tablets because it' s far less diluted with chemical preservatives. Baking soda is a natural heartburn home remedy that effectively encounters the pain caused by acid reflux.
When talking to my doctor about the effectiveness of Arm & Hammer Baking Soda for my heartburn, he mentioned that it' s not recommended for people with high blood pressure because it contains too much sodium to be taken regularly. WARNING: if you have high blood pressure or any medical condition, do not use baking soda for heartburn before consulting with your doctor.
