A lot of people take baking soda for acid reflux. Is this good or bad?

The stomach should be extremely acid with a pH between 1-3. This is normal. You need your stomach acids to be at that pH to digest proteins, kill microbes, and absorb minerals.

When food goes through the stomach and then into the small intestine, the pancreas releases bicarbonate.

Our bodies are supposed to have bicarbonate in the small intestine, not the stomach, to neutralize the stomach acid so it doesn’t damage the small intestine. Bicarbonates are alkaline.

Baking soda is sodium bicarbonate. If you’re putting baking soda into your stomach, you’re going to mess up your digestion down the road.

Instead of just trying to treat the symptoms, you need to ask yourself why you might be getting acid reflux to begin with.

Normally, the valve at the top of the stomach isn’t shutting, so the stomach acid is going up into the esophagus. This could happen due to a vitamin B1 deficiency or because you don’t have enough stomach acid. The valve actually closes if you have enough stomach acid.

Taking apple cider vinegar or betaine hydrochloride can help increase stomach acid and potentially help with acid reflux. A combination of betaine hydrochloride and zinc carnosine may also be effective.

Potential side effects of taking too much sodium bicarbonate over time:
• Vomiting
• Diarrhea
• Kidney damage
• Depressed breathing
• Worsened cardiac heart failure
• Cerebral hemorrhage
• Calcium deficiency
• Potassium deficiency
• Belching/bloating
