Drinking Baking Soda Discovered as New Autoimmune Therapy
Researchers reveal that drinking baking soda reduces the destructive inflammation of autoimmune diseases, according to a new article published on April 25, 2018.
A team of physicists from Medical College of Georgia revealed that a daily dose of baking soda may help reduce the destructive inflammation of autoimmune diseases such as rheumatoid arthritis. They prove how this antacid can encourage human spleen to promote an anti-inflammatory environment that could be therapeutic for inflammatory diseases.
They conducted an experiment to prove that when rats or healthy people drink a solution of baking soda, or sodium bicarbonate, the acid generation in the stomach is triggered to digest the next meal. This also alerts the mesothelial cells placed on the spleen, which further carries the information to the body indicating no need for mounting a protective immune response.
“It’s most likely a hamburger not a bacterial infection. Drinking baking soda, the MCG scientists think, tells the spleen — which is part of the immune system, acts like a big blood filter and is where some white blood cells, like macrophages, are stored — to go easy on the immune response. “Certainly drinking bicarbonate affects the spleen and we think it’s through the mesothelial cells,” said Dr. Paul O’Connor, co-author of the study.
Clinical trials on lab rats have shown that a daily dose of baking soda helps reduce acidity in the stomach as well as slows down progression of kidney disease. This is thus, used as a therapy for patients suffering from such diseases.
