Sodium Bicarbonate


I read on Thibarmy that you’re currently (or were recently) using 12.5 grams of SB twice daily. Do I recall you writing here that you were sensitive to sodium and it leads you to become hypertensive? If so, does this present you any issues?


Sodium bicarbonate doesn’t have the same issue as sodium chloride (table salt).It’s the combination of sodium and chloride that increases blood pressure. If you take in WAY too much it can have an effect, But at that dose never had any issues and I measure my blood pressure daily.


I think I read that same article. The one where he talks about taking Metamucil and SB? Whatever you don’t don’t mix them together in a protein shake. It just turns into this disgusting abomination with the texture of clumpy syrup.
