Have you ever experienced a heartburn and other associated symptoms of acid refllux? Reducing the intake of some certain types of foods that lead to that heartburn sensation is a good idea to start with. We recommend that your intake consists mostly of a low fat and plant-based options instead of high-protein meals. In addition to this, make sure you snack up after every few hours instead of feasting on huge meals and large quantities of drinks. Moreover, if you smoke often, try to restrain the habit, as it is also a vital contributor of acid reflux.
The following list exhibits some of the most common beverages and food items that trigger a heartburn sensation in people:
- Coffee or tea (especially right after eating)
- Supplementary beverages that include caffeine
- Carbonated beverages
- Citrus fruits, like oranges and lemons
- Tomatoes and products that include tomatoes (again..acidity)
- Milk Chocolate
- Fatty and spicy foods
- Onions and garlic
For making viable changes in your dietary routine, add 1-2 tablespoons of oatmeal in your breakfast or lunch. Oats tend to absorb the acidity.
Ginger is another remarkable source of reducing acid reflux and it keeps related symptoms to the minimum. Ginger is known to hold anti-inflammatory properties and helps in overcoming numerous gastrointestinal related ailments. Drinking ginger tea or smoothies is the perfect way to add this exceptional food component in your daily diet – just be careful if you have high blood pressure, then it is not recommended.
Other highly valuable food components that help overcome symptoms of acid reflux include aloe vera juice, bananas, melon, fennel, chicken and turkey, seafood, leafy green vegetables, celery, parsley, couscous, rice and many more.
Adding a combination of the above-mentioned food items in your daily routine not only diversifies your diet plan, but also helps in vigorously fighting against acid reflux. Furthermore, try not go to sleep right after dinner and make every bite worth the chewing. Chew slowly and sensibly – do not forget: your stomach has no teeth! Make those heartburn sensations go away by modifying your diet accordingly, swallow food in small quantities and do not mix many flavors and drinks while eating.
