HOW CAN SOBBA HELP REDUCE ACIDITY

SOBBA is concentrated hydrogen carbonate (bicarbonate) plus mineral ions – Sodium, Chloride, Calcium, Potassium, Magnesium and other trace minerals, used to maintain optimum health and as a supplement to certain types of diseases, depending on the number of drops you take in per day.

SOBBA’s main ingredient is bicarbonate, a compound used as an antacid to treat HEARTBURN, INDIGESTION and UPSET STOMACH.

YOUR BODY IS PRODUCING BICARBONATE

Your body produces bicarbonate in the lungs, kidney and is being released by your stomach to act as a protective barrier coating the walls of the stomach to prevent you from getting ulcers and erosions. Your pancreas likewise releases bicarbonate to protect your intestines in the same manner.

A NEW DRUG COMBINES PROTON PUMP INHIBITOR – OMEPRAZOLE WITH SODIUM BICARBONATE TO ATTAIN ZERO HEARTBURN

Omeprazole works by decreasing the amount of acid your stomach makes. It belongs to a class of drugs known as proton pump inhibitors (PPIs). Sodium bicarbonate is an antacid that reduces stomach acid and helps omeprazole to work better.

Prolonged use of Omeprazole to control acid is likewise not recommended. Studies show long term use decreases calcium and magnesium absorption as well an increased risk acquiring Clostridium defficile and Community Acquired Pneumonia infections.

IS SOBBA SIMILAR TO BAKING SODA (Sodium Bicarbonate) ?

In some ways yes but not entirely so. SOBBA is a mixture of bicarbonate (HCO3-) combined with other electrolytes – Sodium (Na+), Potassium (K+), Magnesium (Mg++) Calcium (Ca++) and Chloride (Cl-) plus other trace elements.
Secondly, SOBBA does not alter the taste like Baking Soda do making it more avid to drink. You can place it in any drink like coffee, tea or juice without altering its taste.
