Is your Body burning to tell you something?
Millions of people suffer from acid reflux disease. Acid reflux occurs when acid from the stomach flows backward into the esophagus, causing a burning sensation in the throat and stomach. It is often painful and uncomfortable and can last for hours. Most people will try to find relief in the form of over-the-counter antacids or prescription medications. Although these products may provide quick relief from the symptoms, if used long-term, they could mask the message that the body is really sending; revealing the underlying cause of the acid indigestion.
TAKE THE ACID REFLUX TEST
One common underlying cause is that the body may not have enough acid to break down protein being consumed. Perform this simple acid reflux test at home.
PREVENT ACID REFLUX
How do you prevent acid reflux? Changes in diet as well as taking a digestive enzyme supplement can help relieve the symptoms and repair the body. Here are some simple tips to help:
- Chew food thoroughly
- Drink only six ounces of water with each meal
- Balance is the key to support the digestive system and avoid acid reflux
- Take a supplement such as Advanced Digestive Enzymes with meals to help the body break down food
- At bedtime and on an empty stomach, take a supplement such as Advanced Probiotics to help support and repair the digestive system
HEALTHY TIP: Proper digestion of protein requires healthy levels of acid in the body so that enzymes can be activated to digest food in the stomach.
