Baking Soda

I saw this post in another thread, but thought I'd ask it myself. Would it be possible to use baking soda as a possible pH buffer. Without going into all the specific chemistry, I would think that it would work just like, say, calcium carbonate (oyster shell), although you would probably have to add a bit more to reach a neutral pH. But then again, I'm new to all of this, so maybe it won't work. Any thoughts?

Baking soda can be used to increase alkalinity. As far as in a casing layer though, I don't think the effects would last to the first flush.

I wonder if there's any difference between having calcium ions floating around vs. sodium ions from the baking soda. Anyone know?
