9 Ways to Use Organic Sodium Bicarb
We believe Miracle Products Organic Super-Natural ‘Aluminum Free’ USP & Food Grade Sodium Bicarbonate is the very best on the market! Much of the available sodium bicarbonate is a man-made product, not Natural and certainly not Organic.
Commercial brands of sodium bicarbonate are synthetic, manufactured using a chemical process through which carbon dioxide and ammonia are passed into a concentrated solution of chloride. Crude sodium bicarbonate precipitates out and is heated to form soda ash, which is then further treated and refined to form sodium bicarbonate. Although this method of producing baking soda ash is widely used, it is also problematic because the chemicals used in the process are pollutants.
Organic Sodium Bicarbonate is Super-Natural, harvested from deep underground ancient mineral deposit of naturally occurring Sodium Carbonate & Bicarbonate. The mix is brought to the surface where a simple filtering, refining and curing process produces a premium Food & USP Grade Aluminum Free Sodium Bicarbonate. (Aluminum <1ppm, not detected)
There are no chemical reactions and nothing added.It’s just pure organic bicarbonate, in it’s natural state just as the earth made it!
Few suppliers of Sodium Bicarb can claim that their product is of Natural origin, and fewer still can lay claim to a Natural Bicarb that is also Organic, but Miracle Products can! Our Bicarb is certified Organic in the USA by OMRI; a leading USA and Canadian Organic Certifier!
Australian Organic Certification rules prevent transfer of the OMRI Organic Certification title and thus limit marketing and labeling our Bicarb as ‘Organic’ and not Certified Organic. But for many of us this is just ‘red tape’ as it has been certified Organic by OMRI in the USA.
Why Should I Have Organic Sodium Bicarbonate?
One of the most potent and effective alkalizing agents for the human body is sodium bicarbonate. Over acidity can become a dangerous condition that weakens all body systems and is very common today. It gives rise to an internal environment conducive to disease, as opposed to a pH-balanced environment which allows normal body function necessary for the body to resist disease. A healthy body maintains adequate alkaline reserves to meet emergency demands. When excess acids must be neutralized, our alkaline reserves are depleted leaving the body in a weakened condition.
Many Experts Believe that Alkalizing Your Body is the Most Important Thing You can do for Your Health! Most alkalizing protocols are not ideal; they can be expensive and wind up only alkalizing the gut and extracellular matrix. Digestion should be and needs to be acidic in order to digest foods. The Mitochondrial Cocktail is easy to make and stimulates hydrochloric acid in the gut to aid digestion while boosting mitochondria and alkalizing from inside the cell.
9 Uses for Organic Sodium Bicarbonate?
#1 Mouth Care
The mildly abrasive qualities of bicarbonate of soda, along with its disinfecting quality make it an excellent tooth polish. A paste of Organic Soda Bicarbonate with powdered Celtic sea salt and water can be used as brilliant toothpaste to keep teeth clean and white. To freshen breath, consider adding a few drops of peppermint oil to the bicarb and salt, mix and store in a container. Mix one part salt to two parts bicarb. Pour a small amount of the bicarb mix into the palm of your hand, wet your tooth brush and press into the powder to make a paste and brush as usual.
