Sodium bicarbonate is an antacid utilized to alleviate symptoms of heartburn and acid indigestion. In certain medical conditions, it may also be prescribed by a physician to neutralize the acidity of the blood or urine.

This medication works by reducing the levels of stomach acid, making it an effective remedy for heartburn, indigestion, and stomach discomfort. Note that sodium bicarbonate provides rapid but temporary relief, and should not be relied upon as a long-term solution.
