Heartburn is an irritation of the oesophagus (the tube that connects your throat and stomach). It's caused by stomach acid. This causes burning discomfort in your upper belly or below your breastbone.
Heartburn is more common during pregnancy. Most people experience heartburn after having a meal, but can also disturb people while they are asleep. People also may encounter heartburn after consuming some kind of food or drinking certain beverages.
Signs of heartburn include:
• A burning pain in the chest that normally occurs after consuming food and may occur at night.
• Pain that degenerates when lying down or bending over.
• Feeling or having a bitter or acidic taste in the mouth.
Some of the things you consume that caused heartburn include.
People who experience heartburn should limit their tomato intake. This is because tomatoes contain two types of acids (malic and citrus) that increase your heartburn risk. When you consume tomato-based products, your stomach makes gastric acid break down foods that are sitting in your stomach.
Caffeine is a major component of different varieties of both coffee and tea. However, coffee has been discovered to be a risk factor for heartburn in some people.
3. Spicy food
Spicy foods can cause heartburn in some people. They often contain a compound known as capsaicin, which may slow your digestion rate. This means food will sit in the stomach longer, which is a risk factor for heartburn.
Reduce your intake of these 3 things to lessen your heartburn risk.
