3 Reasons You Should Put Baking Soda in Coffee

Even if you cook on a regular basis, the suggestion of using baking soda in coffee could be very out of the left field. It’s because baking soda is not a popular ingredient for these situations, especially in beverages. 


In fact, it is also often termed as the less popular counterpart of baking powder. Those who are affiliated with baking or cooking know the reason behind this phenomenon. 


But if you fall under the group that doesn’t have any information about that mentioned difference, then all you need to do is to read through the following information (trust us, it’s worth it).


Due to being pure sodium bicarbonate, baking soda doesn’t have any acidic properties and remains alkaline. To provide an acidic reaction, it has to be mixed with a substance that overcomes its alkaline properties, causing the chemical reaction needed for baking and other uses. 


That is why, those recipes which call for acidic reactions lean towards baking powder, which packs its own acidic element in the form of cream of tartar.


Since most baking recipes call for baking powder, it pushes baking soda behind in terms of demand. But here’s where it gets interesting: the ingredient proves to be more useful than what meets the eye.

For starters, using baking soda in coffee could provide some surprising benefits. From taking care of your digestive system to getting some much-needed pain relief, here are a few reasons why you should start thinking about adding baking soda to coffee today.

1. It Prevents Heartburn

If you are one to consume coffee every chance you get, then you might be familiar with the feeling of heartburn or acidity. That sometimes comes with your daily fix of caffeine. Specifically, that type of heartburn is associated with having inexpensive coffee or medium roast coffee. Which is often made of coffee beans that are prone to make their consumers feel acidic.

Using baking soda in coffee could overcome the acidity in such coffee beans, leaving you with nothing but the distinct kick that’s associated with your favorite beverage. It’s due to baking soda’s alkaline properties, which make sure that the coffee beans’ acidity is taken care of just through a small amount of the ingredient.

The use of baking soda to soothe heartburn and acidity is so widely popular that some professionals even go as far as to recommend having it in pure water as well. But if your goal is just to take care of the acidity caused by coffee, then using it with your cup of joe would suffice.

2. It Helps With Stomach Ache

For those with a sensitive digestive system, drinking coffee also translates to unwanted stomach ache. This is quite a common occurrence for those who have certain digestive issues. Where even a shot of espresso could trigger serious stomach ache.

In order to prevent this in an easy manner, try adding baking soda to a coffee whenever possible. This would help you stay comfortable while also letting you enjoy your beverage. Once again, it’s all due to baking soda’s inherent properties. Which soothe your stomach against acidic agents and provide you with timely relief.

3. It Helps With Acid Reflux

If you suffer from conditions such as acid reflux. Then using baking soda in coffee could help you enjoy your drink while. Also steering clear of triggering any stomach ulcers. This effect usually comes about due to the acidic properties of certain coffee beans. 

But even if you use an expensive coffee, it is going to have some level of acidity to it. If you face issues such as acid reflux or stomach ulcers, drinking coffee might trigger them.

To ensure that you are staying safe from such problems, make sure that you are adding baking soda to coffee. This would let you have your coffee in peace without having to worry about flinching with a stinging feeling afterward.

Baking soda is a very simple ingredient, but using it the right way could bring you much-needed relief. For those suffering from chronic digestion issues, it could be the answer to their silent prayers that allows them to enjoy their cup of coffee without having to bear any consequences for it.


It's a great time of year for walking or hiking! Walking can boost both your physical health and your mental well-being. Plus, it's something you can do while safely social distancing. But if you find walking boring or repetitive, try these ideas for turning an everyday stroll into an adventure that can spark your creativity and help take your mind off your stress.

Design a scavenger hunt:

Print out a list of things you might find in your neighborhood or on a trail, then check them off as you go. Your heightened sense of observation might help you see your familiar route in a whole new light! If you're walking with family or friends, challenge them to a friendly competition to see who can spot each thing first - or the most.

Pick a podcast:

 If you typically listen to music while you walk or run, consider checking out a podcast instead. Ask yourself: Are you in the mood to be entertained or educated? What topics interest you? Then search for something new or ask a friend for a recommendation.

Practice moving meditation:

 Walking meditations can help relieve stress and increase mindfulness. They're a great option if you want to bring your body and mind in sync without sitting still. You can find guided walking meditations and tips online. Walking meditations don't need to belong, so they're ideal if you only have time for a walk around the block.

Dial-up the fitness:

 You'll get a bigger return on your exercise investment if you add cardio or strength training intervals to your walk. Some walking trails have built-in activities you can stop and do along the way. Or you could simply pause periodically to do things like push-ups, jumping jacks, or high knees to keep your heart rate up and work for more muscle groups. Add some hand, wrist, or ankle weights if you want to challenge yourself.

Stop to smell the roses:

Take your dog for a walk and follow their lead. Stop when they stop. See what they see (or smell). Don't have a dog? Offer to walk a neighbor's furry friend. You'll gain a new perspective and accomplish a good deed.

Dementia 'The long goodbye’

 The heartbreaking challenges of dementia are a daily reality for many older adults and their families. Symptoms of dementia include a gradual loss of memory and a decline in language and problem-solving skills to the point a person is unable to perform everyday activities or live on their own. 

Dementia may be related to several disorders that cause abnormal brain changes, with Alzheimer's disease responsible for 60 to 80 percent of cases.

Currently, more than 5 million Americans are living with Alzheimer's, and the number is projected to reach nearly 14 million in the next 30 years.

Alzheimer's disease is the sixth-leading cause of death in the U.S. People age 65 and older survive an average of 4 to 8 years after diagnosis, but due to the slow and uncertain progression of the condition, some people may live up to 20 years with Alzheimer's. And though dementia typically affects people over 65, this serious mental decline is not a normal part of aging.

If you notice one or more signs of dementia in yourself or another person, don't ignore them. You can use the Alzheimer's Association's warning signs worksheet to document any symptoms and discuss them with your doctor.

Alzheimer's and dementia symptoms:

Poor judgment and decision-making Inability to manage a budget Losing track of the date or the season Difficulty having a conversation Misplacing things and being unable to retrace steps to find them

Typical age-related behavioral changes:

Making a bad decision once in a while Missing a monthly payment Forgetting which day it is and remembering it later Sometimes forgetting which word to use Losing things from time to time

Diagnosis and treatment:

Health care providers have a number of ways to measure a person's cognitive abilities and assess what is likely normal aging versus the first signs of dementia. They can also help identify when memory loss might be linked to treatable causes like depression or sleep disorders. 

Although there is no cure for progressive forms of dementia like Alzheimer's, there may be ways to alleviate some of the symptoms and help people maintain normal activities for as long as possible. 

These include: 

• Taking prescription medications called cholinesterase inhibitors 

• Maintaining healthy sleep patterns

• Eating a healthy diet

• Getting regular exercise 

• Cognitive stimulation and socialization


Herbal or alternative remedies may also promise certain benefits but should only be used in consultation with your doctor.

Tips for caregivers:

Caring for a loved one with dementia is difficult, and nearly 60 percent of caregivers rate the emotional stress as high or very high. The Alzheimer's Association has the following suggestions for managing common behavior changes related to dementia.

Six in 10 people with dementia will wander. Reassure the person if they feel lost, abandoned, or disoriented. Plan and stick to a daily routine to build the structure. Keep car keys out of sight and use 

devices that signal when a door or window is opened.

Aggression and anger:

Try to identify if they are in pain or what might have triggered the behavior. Be positive and reassuring. Call 911 in emergency situations. If the person is in a safe environment and you are able, walk away and take a moment for yourself.

Memory loss and confusion:

As memory loss becomes more severe, a person may not recognize family members or locations. Stay calm and try not to take it personally. Use photographs and other thought-provoking items to remind the person of important relationships and places

Anxiety and agitation:

 Find out what may be causing the agitation and try to understand. Create a calming environment and use phrases like, “You're safe here." Use art, music, or other activities to help engage the person and find outlets for their energy.

Musical memories are often preserved in Alzheimer's patients because those brain areas are largely unaffected by the disease.

What your teeth may be telling you?

“What does my mouth have to do with my overall health?" you might ask...

Well, more than you might have imagined ...

How can we prevent the bad guys from taking over? Keep up with the basics:

“What does my mouth have to do with my overall health?" you might ask...

Well, more than you might have imagined ...

- Brush at least twice a day

- Floss daily

- Eat well-plenty of fruits and vegetables

- Use a mouthwash with fluoride

- Check-in with the dentist twice per year at a minimum

What your teeth may be telling you?

Oral health, which includes your mouth, teeth, and gums, can be an indicator or an actual sign of other health problems (or a warning of what's to come). From chronic conditions to lesser-known connections to oral health, here are some of the ways your mouth may be sending you messages.

A little bit about bacteria:

We know our mouths are hubs for bacteria – largely the good kind – but because the mouth serves as the gateway to the digestive and respiratory systems, striking that “good balance" of bacteria is key. So too much bad bacteria built up in the mouth can cause a whole host of issues - including oral infections, periodontitis (gum disease), and/or tooth decay. No fun.

Oral health connections:

Some health issues have true connections to oral health, and in some cases, one actually influences the other.

Mental health issues:

Depression, anxiety, and other mental health disorders have a connection to dental diseases. Losing interest in self-care and daily hygiene can result in more cavities and gum disease.


Defined by bone loss and bone-weakening, this disease has been commonly linked to bone loss of the jaw, as well as tooth loss.


If you've been diagnosed with diabetes or have a hard time controlling your glucose levels, you're at greater risk for gum (periodontal) disease. Diabetes puts you at higher risk for gum and bone infections, which can lead to tooth loss, persistent bad breath, problems chewing, and interference with gum healing (even when treated).

Immune-related conditions:

Autoimmune disorders like Lupus, Rheumatoid Arthritis, and Celiac disease, as well as some cancers and HIV/AIDS which can cause compromised immunity, may make it harder to fight off infection (like too much bad bacteria in your mouth).

When oral health goes south:

Body organs and systems can be impacted by less-than-optimal oral health.

Coronary arterial disease:

Clogged arteries have been closely linked to tooth loss and gum disease.

Heart infections (or endocarditis):

Bacteria from your mouth travels through your bloodstream and lands inside the lining of the heart, which can negatively affect heart valves. If you needed yet another reason to pick up that floss every night, cardiovascular disease and clogged arteries have been linked to the "inflammation and infections” caused by oral bacteria.


Similar to the way bacteria can travel to your heart, germs from your mouth can also land in your lungs and cause pneumonia or other respiratory illnesses.

At-risk pregnancy:

If you have a history of gum disease, keep in mind the risks of low birth weight or premature birth, and talk to your doctor and dentist about these potential complications.

How to Get Rid of Stretch Marks in a Week _ Stretch Marks Treatment Home Remedies 100% Working


Stretch marks

Stretch marks, also called striae, happen when your skin changes shape rapidly due to growth or weight gain. They aren’t a sign that anything is wrong with your health.

Both men and women can get stretch marks. Pregnancy and puberty are the two most common times in life to get stretch marks.

At first, a stretch mark will appear as a thin red or purple line on your skin that takes on a different texture than the surrounding skin layer. Eventually, most stretch marks fade and take on a lighter or almost translucent coloring, and become shiny.

Getting rid of stretch marks in a completely natural way isn’t likely. They’re a type of scarring that rarely fades enough to become invisible. However, there are some remedies that can help minimize the appearance of stretch marks and help them to fade more quickly.

1. Vitamin A

Vitamin A is referred to as a retinoid. Retinoids make skin appear smoother and more youthful. They’re used in many over-the-counter topical cosmetic creams.

Simply using a topical extract of vitamin A, or taking vitamin A orally, can contribute to your skin’s health and overall appearance. A diet rich in certain foods, such as carrots and sweet potatoes, might also help you increase your vitamin A levels.

In an older study in 1996Trusted Source, researchers identified retinoids as helping the appearance of stretch marks. Further research is still necessary to identify all of its effects on stretch marks.

2. Sugar

Some people swear by sugar as a naturopathic microdermabrasion method.

Microdermabrasion performed by a dermatologist is one of the few clinically proven methods to make stretch marks fade. So this home remedy seems worth a try.

Rubbing a sugar scrub on the skin will exfoliate the area. To do this:

Mix one cup sugar with 1/4 cup of a softening agent, like almond oil or coconut oil, before mixing to the consistency of wet beach sand.

Add some lemon juice.

Scrub the mixture on the part of your body where the stretch marks are.

Repeat several times a week while in the shower, making sure to rub the mixture on for 8-10 minutes.

3. Aloe vera

While little clinical evidence exists for aloe vera as a stretch mark cure, pure aloe vera is both a natural healing agent and a skin softener. This makes it an ideal home remedy to try for stretch marks.

Apply pure aloe vera from a plant to your stretch marks daily after your shower.

4. Hyaluronic acid

Collagen is the protein in your skin that allows it to keep its shape and appear healthy. As we age, collagen decreases in our face and our bodies.

Collagen production can be simulated rusted Source with hyaluronic acid. Hyaluronic acid can be absorbed by consuming a capsule or extract.

5. Coconut oil

Since stretch marks are scarring from skin damage, coconut oil might help heal the appearance quickly.

Coconut oil has been studied trusted Source for its healing properties and was found in rats to reduce the time it takes for skin wounds to heal.

Applying virgin coconut oil to your stretch marks each day might take away some of their red appearances. Unless you’re allergic to coconuts, this oil is considered safe.

Other treatments

Laser therapy, needling, and microdermabrasion are three clinical treatments for stretch marks.

Microdermabrasion involves exfoliating the skin in a way that at-home remedies cannot. Research has shown that microdermabrasion improved the appearance of stretch marks.

Needling, which is a relatively new treatment in which collagen is injected underneath the top layer of your skin, may also trust Source to be effective.

Most of these treatments aren’t typically covered by insurance, and they can be costly. Only a dermatologist can tell you whether you’re a candidate for these procedures.

Who gets stretch marks?

There are common misconceptions about stretch marks and who gets them. The truth is that genetics is the strongest predictor of stretch marks.

According to the Mayo Clinic, women are more likely to get them, especially those who are pregnant. Other risk factors include:

  • being on corticosteroid medication
  • losing or gaining weight rapidly
  • having breast enlargement surgery


The best treatment for stretch marks appears to be prevention. By keeping your skin hydrated, you can help keep the elastin that your skin needs to keep from scarring.

Using topical creams such as coconut oil will keep your skin moisturized and make stretch marks less likely.

Even without treatment, almost all stretch marks will fade over time. Rarely will stretch marks stay as prominent as when they initially appear.
