Drinking Baking Soda for Health Benefits | How To Improve Your Health

– Welcome to MarcusG.tv. I'm Chef Marcus Guiliano. I'm a chef on a mission. This mission is baking soda. Now, most of us think of
baking soda as something you keep in the refrigerator
or for a baking recipe. They don't really realize the benefits and the power of baking soda. Baking soda, known as sodium bicarbonate, has so many uses, and it's so
cheap and inexpensive to use. So as a chef and a food
health nut, here are some of the things that I've
learned to do with baking soda. To give a little history, ancient Egyptians used this
natural mineral called natron, which contains sodium bicarbonate. They used this for medicinal
purposes and for cleaning. In 1791, Nicolas Leblanc, French chemist, produced sodium ash, known
as sodium bicarbonate, for the first time, and
in 1846, two New Yorkers started the first commercial
production of baking soda. So, first off, our bodies produce sodium bicarbonate naturally. It's produced in our pancreas, and it's used as a buffering
system to buffer the acids for our digestion and
for our body functions, and if we're not producing enough of it, that's when we possibly could
have health consequences. One of the first things
people use baking soda for is to brush their teeth. I think that's really one
of the more common uses besides the refrigerator
and in baking recipes. People know that you can
buy baking soda toothpaste, or you can just simply
gargle and wash your mouth and brush your teeth with a little bit of baking soda and water. Plaque-busting, because we
use it to brush our teeth. It is very effective for plaque-busting. One of the more common
uses for baking soda now is to alkalize our bodies. If you've read The pH Miracle
by Doctor Robert Young, he talks about the body's
pH and how important it is to keep our pH up, because
disease usually happens in an acidic body, right? So a lot of people are now
using baking soda to boost their alkalinity, and one
of the best ways to do that is probably two to three
teaspoons per gallon of water. Now, I know baking soda is
gonna have a slightly salty, tangy taste; however, if
you're doing two to three big teaspoons per gallon,
you're not gonna taste it nearly as much as doing
one teaspoon per glass, which is what you would
do for acid reflux. Yes, acid reflux. It works phenomenal with acid reflux. As a young chef, I had
terrible acid reflux because I was eating the
food that I was cooking for our guests, and that
food was lamb, foie gras, and I'd throw an occasional salad in there so I had my healthy kick,
right, you know, a salad, with a sugary, oil-based
dressing, not knowing the damaging effects of
the food that I was eating. I was having acid reflux so
bad that my doctor in Colorado wanted to operate, because
none of the medicine that he was prescribing
was actually working. I always had Tums on my
nightstand on my bed, and there were many nights
I would just sit up in bed and drink water and take
Tums because I couldn't, I had such bad acid
reflux I couldn't sleep, and it was terrible. After I altered my diet,
that went away, of course, but my doctor never told
me to alter my diet. My doctor was like, just,
let's take this medicine. Let's take this medicine. Here's this, and none of it was working. Now, if I happen to get acid
reflux, I take baking soda, and it goes right away. Literally within a matter of 60 seconds, the relief is on, and it is amazing. I wish I knew that when
I was actually suffering. But because I was suffering
from that medical condition and several others, it actually
helped me to actually change my diet and change the way
I look at food, and in turn, change the way that I
cook food for our guests, because I do have a confession,
the food that I was cooking, I was killing you. I was killing me and I was
killing you because it was all fancy, high-fat, high-preservative, high-cholesterol foods that
just weren't necessary. They were just not necessary. You can make food taste
good without all of that. Another great source of
it or great use of it would be colds and flus. You can take a half a
teaspoon six times daily the first day that you get
the onsets of flu or a cold, and then decrease that
over the days to four, five, three half-teaspoons per day. Another great way to use
baking soda is to combine it with apple cider vinegar,
real apple cider vinegar, and take what's called a detox bath. Now, I love to take
these when I feel achy. You fill the bathtub
up with as hot of water as you can possibly sit in it, right? You put your cup of baking soda… You put your cup of apple cider in, then you put your baking soda
in, and I would put maybe a half a cup of baking soda,
and you submerge your body into that, when it's as
hot as you can stand it, and you just sit there and let
the water totally cool down. The hot water opens your
pores, the baking soda and the apple cider
vinegar start to detox you, pull stuff out of your cells. See, baking soda, sodium bicarbonate, is a detoxifier as well because it pulls excess lactic
acid out of your system, and if you're an athlete, you definitely wanna
avoid lactic acid, right? That's the stuff that
builds up when you're doing endurance runs, cycling,
swimming, things like that. So, believe it or not, there's
a term called soda doping. They used it with horses for a long time, even in the Olympics, to do
something called soda doping, which is take a teaspoon
and a glass of water of baking soda and consume
that before your endurance. Now, there are studies out
there, the last study I read, was in an hour-long endurance
activity, such as running, swimming, you can shave
almost 10% off of your time, because as the lactic
acid starts to build up. the sodium bicarbonate, the baking soda, is dumping the lactic
acid out of your system. So the next thing is,
okay, if it's dumping it out of my system while I'm
working out, what happens if I'm intentionally
poisoning myself with alcohol? I don't drink as much as I nearly used to, because I've learned to alter
my diet, alter my lifestyle, and be a lot healthier, but
however, there were many times when I was drinking, I
could say, you know what? I wanna lessen my hangover,
I wanna lessen the effects of the alcohol, I wanna
dump some of the toxins, and I would drink a teaspoon
of sodium bicarbonate in water before I went to bed. And everybody that I told to
do this to that was drinking did it with amazing results,
like, oh my gosh, Marcus, thank you very much,
I didn't realize that. Now, I'm not advocating
drinking alcohol here, okay? When you drink alcohol, you
kill millions of brain cells, you kill millions of liver cells… It's not a matter of your
body only thinks your having one drink and there's certain
cells that aren't gonna die. Every drink produces cell death, okay, and long-term effects of that
are not good for your body. Short-term aren't either, so
I'm not advocating drinking, I'm just saying, if you do
drink, you need the detox bath. You can also do a foot
soak in baking soda, take, you know, a quarter cup of baking soda, which is about three
tablespoons of baking soda, put it into a foot bath,
and soak your feet in that. It'll get rid of nice aches
and pains and make your feet feel revitalized, especially
if you're a runner. I just got done running some trails and my feet are a little
bruised up from that. I wasn't wearing the right shoes. So baking soda bath, here my feet come. Probably one of the biggest
benefits of baking soda is for cancer treatment. Now, you can Google this and
find this all over the web. You can find true testimonials
of people that are basically on their deathbed
or with months to live, that after nothing was working,
after chemo wasn't working, radiation, they resorted to baking soda, and you can hear real
testimonials of real people, and in fact, there's doctors,
many doctors around the world, that prescribe to it. You can look at Doctor Tullio from Italy who has successfully treated
breast cancer and other cancers with baking soda, with oral baking soda. You don't have to do it intravenously. It's orally done. And he has amazing results. You can also read the book, Rich Man's Poor Man's Cancer Treatment by Doctor Mark Sircus. It is a phenomenal short
read, and it talks all about how baking soda is used
to help with cancer. And so, read the book,
listen to the testimonials. If you're concerned about cancer, whether you have it or whether
you think you might get it, because you so-called have
genes that might get cancer, okay, now I wanna say
something about genes, okay? Lifestyle triumphs genes any day. Because a lot of people
say, it's in my genes. My family has breast cancer,
issue of breast cancer, heart disease, whatever. Lifestyle triumphs, lifestyle triumphs genes any day. Okay? Eating French fries, eating foie gras, eating fried foods, eating
sugar, refined sugar, not fruit, but refined
sugar, like corn syrup, drinking sodas, potato
chips, eating hot dogs, eating a lot of meat… That triumphs your genes any day. So, alkalizing your body. Eating lots of fruits, lots
of veggies, preferably raw. Keeping the fat down in your
diet to a certain, you know, to a certain range. Not overdoing the fat. That triumphs your genes any day. And that right there is the
most powerful thing ever, because you don't have to say, I'm doomed because of my genes. It's not necessary. Between baking soda naturally
occurring in our environment and our body's environment
because it's produced by our pancreas, baking
soda is a win-win-win, and the third win comes because
it's so inexpensive to buy. Now, I don't buy the
traditional mass-marketed big brand baking soda. I actually buy Bob's Red Mill. So, it might cost you more
than a buck, but realistically, at a buck-fifty, two bucks,
it's one of the best single investments you could make
for your health and longevity. I do promise that. So, do some research on baking soda. I would definitely recommend getting on the baking soda bandwagon. Trust me, you'll love it. And it's not only for
cooking and the refrigerator. I'm Chef Marcus Guiliano. If you like this video, please

  1. My only question/concern would be… If we are to use 3tsp baking soda per gallon of water. Is that healthy from a sodium intake standpoint? I mean 1/4tsp of baking soda is 11% the recommended daily allowance of sodium. So therefore, 3tsp in gallon of water means you are at 132% RDA of sodium, in just your water. That's without ANY food or other drinks. So are you not blowing your sodium levels through the roof by doing this? And isn't that alone unhealthy? I am honestly asking…..

    Any answers/advice/opinions are welcomed. And thanks in advance.

  2. I took some last night. The next day I was not hungry and controlled my binging all day. Heard it good for weight loss. Just about 1/2 teaspoon.

  3. I googled if drinking liqor kills brain cells. Did the results lie? I was told it affects how we think but that its a myth that it kills brain cells.

  4. I have not watched yet but, do not take BS close to a meal as it can block absorbsion of Iron.
    I mix BS with pure Vit. C, it makes a great Fizz! lol Add Pure Asprin (baking soda acts as a buffer to protect the stomach). Also add Nacent Iodine 🙂
    Nothing wrong with Arm & Hammer BS, it's ingredients? 100% BS! 🙂
    My mom has use A&H BS all her life, she is 99 years old, (she will turn 100 this December 25th 2019 !!)

  5. Hi Marcus you are 110 percent wright about baking soda, but when you get acid reflux believe  it or not it's because you don't have enough acid in your stomach, and baking soda neutralises acid which we need to digest are food! it's more your blood that needs to be alkaline and raw beets will help with oxygen in the red blood cells, ATB Wayne UK.

  6. If you have a uti just try it. Just down 2 teaspoons in about 16 oz water. I swear I was at the gates of hell with a uti, had tried everything including antibiotics. In desperation, tried baking soda, which I imagined was just too simple and silly to work, but ALL symptoms were gone in an hour. Yep. After three weeks of suffering. I take a quarter teaspoon a day now.
