HEARTBURN AND YOUR DIET
When you think of heartburn triggers, you might think of spicy foods or highly acidic foods. But those aren't the only food-related heartburn triggers - things you eat and drink every day could contribute to your heartburn pain.
HEARTBURN CAN BE TRIGGERED BY THESE FOODS:
- Citrus fruits
- Spicy foods
THESE BEVERAGES CAN TRIGGER HEARTBURN:
- Carbonated drinks
- Caffeinated drinks
- Fruit juices
When it comes to diet, it can be difficult to properly manage and prevent heartburn and acid reflux. Instead of avoiding certain foods altogether, try keeping track of what foods trigger heartburn for you and eating milder versions of those foods instead.
You can also try remaining upright after eating or laying on your left side while sleeping. Maintaining an active lifestyle by doing small things, like taking walks after eating, can have a positive impact on preventing heartburn.
If these tips don't work for you, remember that Gaviscon® antacids provide fast-acting, long-lasting relief from heartburn and acid indigestion.*
