I've been giving Caleb 2000 mg. of sodium ascorbate to try to help with histamine/his allergies. It occurred to me today--am I compromising his digestion by lowering stomach acid with the sodium ascorbate?
The natural mineral form is known as nahcolite. It is found in its dissolved form in bile, where it serves to neutralize the acidity of the hydrochloric acid produced by the stomach, and is excreted into the duodenum of the small intestine via the bile duct. It is also produced artificially./QUOTE]<br><br>
So that makes a lot of sense then! But I am not sure if sodium bicarbonate and sodium ascorbate are in any way related. I mean, they have different structures and everything, unless it is the sodium part that does that?
