There is a lot of talk about ‘Gut Health’ these days and I subscribe to the idea that it is important. However, I love a good cup of coffee.

You will possibly know that it is good for our gut to be more alkaline than acidic and here’s the rub, my beloved cup of coffee is acidic. Not the best for my gut health.

This is where the magic happens. It really is alchemy. If you add a tiny bit of bicarbonate of soda to your cup of coffee, it turns an acidic drink into and alkaline drink. Amazing!

I still try to stick to a maximum of 2 cups a day as that caffeine can play havoc with getting a good night’s sleep.
