Composition of Nahcolite
Nahcolite is a soft, colourless or white carbonate mineral with the composition of sodium bicarbonate.
It is found dissolved in many mineral springs.
Health Benefits of Nahcolite
Nahcolite can be used in traditional applications of sodium bicarbonate—e.g. in baking soda and toothpaste.
Sodium bicarbonate is one of the most useful substances in the world of medicine. It can be used to promote health and help cure cancer, kidney disease and a wide range of acute and chronic illnesses. Nahcolite dissolves existing uric acid kidney stones and prevents the development of new ones. It kills the bacteria that cause urinary tract infections, and is also used to treat urinary tract infections.
Nahcolite neutralizes stomach acid. Sodium of Bicarbonate acts as a buffering agent to preserve muscle performance and prolong endurance. It also prevents heartburn and indigestion and helps with an upset stomach.
History of Nahcolite
Nahcolite is found in large quantities in the central salt body of Searles Lake, California, and as concentrations up to 1.5 metres thick in oil shale deposits in the Piceance Basin of the Green River Formation in Colorado, where it is commercially mined. It also has been mined in Botswana and Kenya, and there are sizable deposits in Uganda, Turkey, and Mexico.
