Sodium Bicarbonate and Performance

By Stephen McCarthy, The McCarthy Project

armandhammer_logoThe subject of baking soda use for performance has been misunderstood.  As a ergogenic aid in the short term, it has had mixed results. On the other hand, as an immune system booster and long term performance enhancer, the results stand for themselves.  As always, the following information is meant to be the start of your journey on elite performance, not the solution.

“Sodium Bicarbonate (NaHCO3) commonly called baking soda is a natural substance used in the human body within the bloodstream to regulate pH as a counterbalance to acid build up, which is critical to life. It affects the pH of cells and tissues, balances cell voltage, and increases CO2 which helps with oxygenation. Sodium Bicarbonate is a powerful medical tool that everyone would benefit by knowing more about.

Sodium Bicarbonate can be used as a first line of defence for a vast range of sickness including, cancer, flu, diabetes, kidney disease and even the common cold. Sodium Bicarbonate can be used in many forms whether transdermally in a bath, orally or nebulised for lung conditions. It is so powerful in it’s ability to detox that it can even be used against radiation exposure.” Dr. Mark Sirucs, author of Sodiium Bicarbonate: A Full Review
