Heartburn is a symptom in which food or stomach acid moves backwards, causing a burning sensation as if the esophagus is on fire. If the symptoms are severe, bad breath occurs, and if the symptoms are too severe, the risk of esophageal cancer increases. If you eat spicy food or fried foods, you can secrete too much stomach acid and cause reflux, which can cause heartburn. Other foods that cause acid reflux include coffee, chocolate, red meat, tomato sauce, and red wine. Eating more than usual or lying down right after eating can also cause acid reflux. U.S. health and medical media, ‘prevention.com’ introduced food to relieve heartburn.

△ Yogurt

Dairy products, including milk and ice cream, relieve heartburn. Calcium, which is rich in dairy products, also helps to tighten the esophageal sphincter. However, it is better to avoid products with a lot of sugar or high fat, such as ice cream. Unsweetened yogurt (yoghurt) or low-fat milk is preferred.

△ Pumpkin

The sticky mucilage on the surface relieves heartburn. Mallow is good for the same reason. But cruciferous vegetables are not good. Broccoli, bok choy, cabbage, etc. produce gas during the digestive process and cause belching. May trigger acid reflux.

△ Banana

Fruits with a strong sour taste, such as oranges and berries, can exacerbate heartburn. On the other hand, bananas, a soft fruit with low acidity, calm the stomach and neutralize stomach acid.

△ Ginger

Brew it as a tea or eat unsweetened ginger candy to relieve heartburn.

oatmeal, potato

The soft, chewy texture of oatmeal helps the esophageal sphincter to close properly. For the same reason, starchy potatoes are good.
