You might be surprised to learn that cream of tartar is extremely beneficial to the body. For example, it can help in the quick removal of nicotine, which normally takes between 48 and 72 hours to leave the body. Cream of tartar, also called potassium hydrogen tartrate, is the sediment leftover in wine barrels. Therefore, it contains no alcohol.
Cream of tartar causes cigarettes to taste horrible, and when mixed in with orange juice, it can boost the levels of vitamin C and help flush out nicotine faster. If your goal is to quit smoking, add a half teaspoon of cream of tartar to a medium glass of orange juice before bed every night for 30 days.
Drop In Blood Pressure
Most people don’t know it, but low potassium levels can increase their chance of suffering from high blood pressure. Luckily, there are 16,500 milligrams of potassium in 100 grams of cream of tartar. If you’ve been told you have a potassium deficiency, consider adding a teaspoon of cream of tartar in water and drink before bed.
Ease Arthritis Pain
100 milligrams of cream of tartar has two milligrams of magnesium, which will help with inflammation-related conditions such as arthritis. To alleviate arthritis pain, add three tablespoons of Epsom salt and two tablespoons of cream of tartar to a bath and soak for 30 minutes a day (two times a day, if you can).
For more localized pain, reduce the concoction by half.
Clear Up Acne
Cream of tartar has acidic properties that can fight acne and clear up skin blemishes. Give your body a detoxification and eliminate acne-causing bacteria by drinking eight ounces of water or orange juice mixed with one teaspoon of cream of tartar.
Alleviate Urinary Tract Infections
Cream of tartar can alter pH levels in the body, treating urinary tract infections. Just add one and a half teaspoons of cream of tartar to one cup of warm water with several drops of lemon juice. Be sure to drink this several times a day.
