Baking soda, How to Fight Against Autoimmune diseases?


According to American researchers, a daily dose of baking soda could help reduce the destructive inflammation caused by autoimmune diseases like rheumatoid arthritis or multiple sclerosis. Baking soda enthusiasts often think of it as a miracle product. Inexpensive and ecological, it is often used as a beauty product (toothpaste, shampoo, skin care, etc.), in maintenance products (anti-lime, fungicide, scouring powder, deodorant, etc.), but also for health such as sore throat or stomach ache. Researchers from the Medical College of Georgia (United States) have just found a new use for it: soothing the immune system. Their research was published in The Journal of Immunology.

BICARBONATE "SOOTHES" THE RATE
In autoimmune diseases such as rheumatoid arthritis, multiple sclerosis or Graves' disease, our own immune system attacks us. Researchers have just discovered that baking soda soothes inflammatory reactions, which could be a new avenue in the fight against autoimmune diseases.
Researchers found that when a person drank a solution of water and baking soda, their stomach became more active to digest the next meal, and poorly studied cells - mesothelial cells - sent a message to the spleen to tell it that it is not necessary to trigger an immune response: "It is probably a hamburger and not a bacterial infection", humorously illustrates in a press release Dr. Paul O'Connor, author of the study.

MACROPHAGES CHANGE SHAPE
The role of the spleen is to filter the blood and to purify it, but also to manufacture white blood cells, the cells of immunity. “Drinking baking soda definitely affects the spleen and we think it's through the mesothelial cells,” says O'Connor. But that's not the only thing they observed.
After drinking baking soda, macrophages (cells of the immune system found in the blood, spleen, and kidneys) went from an M1 form which promotes inflammation, to an M2 form which, on the contrary, reduces it. This would be due to the drop in acidity caused by the ingestion of baking soda. "It is potentially a very safe way to treat inflammatory diseases," the scientist optimistically concluded.
