Yesterday, I wrote about the potential effect of bicarbonate on uric acid. There is actually some possibility that bicarbonate, which is alkaline, can reduce the amount of purines in the food you eat - but only if you can make it penetrate the cell walls. Which happens when you chew your food. But that is not when mos people (including me) drink their supplements.
