Acid Reflux And Foods To Avoid
Acid reflux is a condition in which acidic gastric fluid from the stomach is regurgitated into the esophagus, causing heartburn which is the most common symptom. The stomach produces acid normally, gastric acid, to cleanse the food eaten by destroying harmful bacteria. And when this acid mixed with food is regurgitated back up the esophagus it produces a burning and sometimes painful sensation. If individuals eat a reasonable amount of foods, it is let out into the duodenum a little at a time for further digestion. If people eat too much, however, the stomach becomes highly pressured and relief is needed, above the stomach is the sphincter muscle that relaxes allowing gas and liquid to escape. Acid reflux is linked to eating certain foods and the best stratagem is to avoid these foods entirely if one has the tendency to suffer from bouts of acid refluxes. Foods to avoid that are Problematic
- Carbonated Beverages
- Contains caffeine, which has been known to relax the sphincter muscle promoting acid reflux.
- Chocolate is high in fat, more specifically fatty acids.
