Heartburn or reflux is caused by a weakness in the sphincter that closes off the top of the stomach from the esophagus. It can be aggravated by spicy foods, allergies, obesity, digestive enzyme deficiencies, stress and hiatus hernias. Fortunately there are several natural heartburn supplements that can help treat reflux effectively. Deglycyrrhizinated licorice, or DGL, heartburn supplements in chewable form helps to coat the mucous membranes in the digestive tract and reduce the inflammation. Improving the efficiency of the digestive system by using digestive enzymes and probiotic supplements will also help to reduce the symptoms of heartburn. Both of these heartburn supplements help the body to break down food and move through the digestive tract more efficiently. This helps to prevent the food from remaining in the stomach for too long creating a build-up of acid that can escape into the esophagus, as well as helping the body to gain maximum benefit from the nutrients in the food. Barberry and Devil’s Claw herbal heartburn supplements have anti-inflammatory properties that can help heal the inflammation of the esophagus caused by the acid. Devil’s Claw can also help to lower the hyper-acidity in the stomach and Barberry has the added bonus of helping to boost the immune system. Calcium Magnesium is useful for helping to neutralize the acid in the stomach and is most effective as a heartburn supplement in the chewable or liquid form. Aloe Vera juice also helps to soothe irritation that is caused by reflux. Complimenting your heartburn supplements with lifestyle changes can help to eliminate heartburn symptoms. Losing weight is beneficial, even if you’re only those annoying 10 or so pounds overweight. This is because extra abdominal fat presses on the stomach, pushing the acid up into the esophagus. Avoid trigger foods such as chocolate, fried and fatty foods, highly spiced foods, raw onions, garlic, and vinegar. Other triggers that should be avoided are alcohol, caffeine, carbonated drinks and smoking. Using Body Energy Club’s natural heartburn supplements can provide long-term relief of chronic heartburn or reflux while providing your body with added health benefits that don’t come with the use of pharmaceutical treatments. Before starting any new supplements it is important to check with your doctor to make sure that they are right for you, especially if you have a medical condition or are taking prescription medications.+ Read less >
