What Is Cream Of Tartar?

Cream of tartar is a powder also known as potassium hydrogen tartrate in the chemical circles. It’s the sediment that comes from the bottom of a wine barrel. However, it doesn’t contain any alcohol, so don’t worry.

Here are just some of its amazing benefits:

Quit Smoking

Cream of tartar doesn’t only help you eliminate nicotine from your body, some even say that it can create an aversion for the taste of cigarettes. If you’re trying to quit smoking drink cream of tartar mixed with some orange juice, it works best like that.

The orange juice replenishes your body’s vitamin C levels, which are depleted as a result of the chemicals in cigarettes. The elevated levels of Vitamin C further help your body flush nicotine.

One of our sources confirmed the effectiveness of this mixture and said it helped him smoking. He was drinking a medium glass of orange juice with half a tsp. of cream of tartar every night for a month.

Reduce Arthritis Pain

There are 2 milligrams of magnesium in just 100 grams of cream of tartar. According to Dr. Sircus, magnesium “modulates cellular events involved in inflammation.” In laymen’s terms, if you have arthritis cream of tartar will be your new best friend.

NaturalRemediesCenter.com recommends mixing 2 tbsp. of cream of tartar with 3 tbsp. of Epsom salt in your daily bath. Soak in this concoction for 30-40 minutes at least once a day. If you have localized arthritis pain you can halve the cream of tartar and Epsom salt quantity and use a bucket instead.

Relieve Urinary Tract Infection

Says that cream of tartar can relieve UTIs by altering your urine’s pH level and creating an unfavorable environment for the bacteria responsible for the infections. Mix 1½ tsp. of cream of tartar with 1 cup of warm water. Add a few drops of lemon juice and consume the mixture once or twice a day.

Clear Acne

Theodora Pennypacker a writer for Leaf.tv says: “cream of tartar’s acidic properties make it a great acne-fighting, cleaning agent for your skin. You don’t apply the cream directly to your face, though. Rather, you create a drink with 1 teaspoon of cream of tartar and 8 ounces of water or orange juice.

Make sure you drink this mixture every day and gradually it will help you flush out all the toxins and bacteria which are the root cause for your skin problem.
