Sodium Bicarbonate Side Effects
-Increased level of body pH (metabolic alkalosis)
-Worsening congestive heart failure
-Severe muscle spasms and contractions (tetany)
-Swelling in the feet, ankles, and lower legs
-High levels of sodium in the blood
Used judiciously (not too hard and not too much), it can be okay. I prefer tooth and gum toothpaste.
