Baking Soda vs Apple Cider Vinegar (ACV) for Indigestion: Which is Better?
Today we’re going to talk about which is better for digestion, baking soda, or apple cider vinegar (ACV)?
There is no doubt that both of these home remedies for indigestion work. But I want to talk about the long-term effect of baking soda vs. apple cider vinegar.
Hypochlorhydria is a situation where you either don’t have enough stomach acid, or the acid is weak. The purpose of stomach acid is to help break down protein, to help kill pathogens, and to help with the absorption of minerals and trace minerals.
Symptoms of hypochlorhydria:
• Acid reflux
• Stomach infections
Baking soda vs. Apple cider vinegar:
Baking soda for indigestion will make you feel better because it’s going to help remove some of that excess acid in your esophagus. But, the next time you eat, you’re still going to have the same symptoms because it’s not corrective. Baking soda also contains a tremendous amount of sodium. When you increase sodium, you deplete potassium, which is connected to many different conditions. You also deplete chloride. This can cause you to deplete hydrochloric acid in your stomach and then cause you to need more baking soda.
Apple cider vinegar
Apple cider vinegar is a great natural remedy for indigestion. You need to dilute it. Mix one tablespoon of apple cider vinegar in a glass of water and take it before you eat.
The fluids in your stomach should be acid, but the blood in the body should be slightly alkaline. Alkalizing the body is not the best thing to do in every situation.
Symptoms of acidosis:
• Irritated nerves
• Sighing frequently
• Sensitivity to light and sound
• A lump in the throat when you swallow
• Difficulty breathing in high altitudes
• Lactic acid
• Uric acid
