Sodium Bicarbonate is commonly known as baking soda. It has a wide variety of uses due to its alkaline property. It can alkalise your urine, as well as alkalise your blood in order to treat metabolic acidosis. It can also be used as an antacid to neutralise your stomach acid and hence relieve symptoms like indigestion and heartburn. It is one of the main ingredients in gripe water, which is often used for infant colic.
