I use Sodium Bicarbonate and Potassium Bicarbonate (I use more PB than SB) for athletic performance enhancement, but have found that it has numerous health and therapeutic benefits. I thought your article about baking soda had a lot of good information. I had not thought about neutralizing citric and acetic acid before consuming them to prevent the need for the pancreas to do so. Of course, the byproduct of SB production in the pancreas is acid which goes to the blood. I was surprised you had not included sodium bicarbonate or potassium bicarbonate as a remedy for osteoporosis and Omega 3s a remedy for DVT to reduce inflammation.
