Exfoliation and Skin Whitening... Do you know one of the reasons why people have the tendency to have darker skin? It is because they rarely exfoliate. Sometimes, soap and water and even the use of bathing liquids are not enough. There is a need to exfoliate the skin. This can be done with the use of Baking Soda that is sometimes mixed in with lemon if you would like to whiten the area. The Baking Soda paste is usually applied to areas that are prone to darkening such as the underarms, elbows, and knees.

Natural Teeth Whitener…To keep your teeth looking pearly white, you can create your own paste with a teaspoon of Bicarbonate Soda and water. Once a week, rub the paste gently onto your teeth, let it sit for about five minutes, and then rinse your mouth. This is such an ideal natural way to whiten your teeth and eliminate bad bacteria without using any questionable chemicals as well.

Enhanced Athletic Performance… Some studies show that Bicarbonate of Soda can help you perform at your peak for longer, especially during anaerobic exercises or high intensity training and sprinting. During high intensity exercise, your muscle cells start producing lactic acid, which is responsible for the burning feeling you get during exercise. Lactic acid also lowers the pH inside your cells, which may cause your muscles to tire. Baking Soda has a high pH, which may help delay tiredness, allowing you to exercise at your peak longer. For example, one study found that people who took Baking Soda exercised for an average of 4.5 minutes longer than people who didn’t take it. One study recommends taking 300 mg of Bicarbonate of Soda per 33.8 ounces (1 litre) of water one to two hours before exercising. Another study added that taking it three hours before exercise results in less gastrointestinal discomfort.

Remove Pesticides…Recent research has found that soaking vegetables and fruit in a Bicarbonate of Soda wash is the most effective way to remove pesticides without having to peel them.
