Recently, researchers have found that drinking baking soda may help people prevent autoimmune diseases.
Autoimmune diseases are caused by a dysfunction of the immune system.
Normally, the immune system can protect the body from inflection and diseases. But when things go wrong, the immune system can attack healthy cells, tissues, and organs.
This can cause autoimmune diseases, which include type 1 diabetes, multiple sclerosis, rheumatoid arthritis, and other diseases.
In the current study, researchers from Augusta University in Georgia tested if baking soda could help prevent autoimmune diseases.
Baking soda is known as a natural cleaner. It can provide lots of health benefits. Many people use it to kill bad bacteria in the mouth and prevent tooth decay.
The researchers found that drinking baking soda could help fight the inflammation of autoimmune diseases.
In rats and healthy people, drinking baking soda helped the stomach make more acid to digest the next meal.
It also helped prevent the stomach from mounting a protective immune response.
According to the researchers, baking soda could tell the stomach it is a hamburger, not a bacterial infection.
In addition, the researchers found that drinking baking soda could help slow the progression of kidney disease.
The team suggests the shift from inflammatory to an anti-inflammatory profile occurs in multiple regions in the body after drinking baking soda.
It can be a really safe and easy way to treat inflammatory disease.
One author of the study is Dr. Paul O’Connor.
The finding is published in the Journal of Immunology.
