    I've used baking soda to counteract. MCS exposure. I don't know about dog but I'd be curious

    I used 1/4 tsp in 4 oz water. How were you going to take it?

    I too read that baking soda would improve brain fog.

    I took as much as 3 t/p per day and still no effect.

    So, for me, it did not work.

    I don't know the exact answer, but it may help by reducing acidity in the gut (and maybe in the brain?) when conditions are too acidic. One of the things that causes my brain fog is pressure in the bowel (e.g. from trapped gas), which could act via the vagus nerve, but that's not the only cause. I am taking sodium bicarbonate (the chemical name for baking soda) long-term for perceived acidosis.

    Just found a site that analyses research on supplements, and it has a huge amount of info on sod bic.

    It may not act fast.
