ACID reflux describes the unpleasant sensation of stomach acid travelling up towards the throat, leaving an unpleasant sour taste in the mouth. A burning sensation in the chest is also likely, so how can you prevent it?
Gastro-oesophageal reflux disease (GORD) is the diagnosis of repeated heartburn and acid reflux. Other symptoms can include: recurrent hiccups, a hoarse voice, bad breath, bloating and nausea. The NHS stated: “Your symptoms will probably be worse after eating, when lying down and when bending over.” Certain foods trigger or worsen acid reflux, such as coffee and chocolate, but which foods could help prevent heartburn?
Such foods can include: bananas, melons, cauliflower, fennel, and nuts.
Another way to prevent heartburn is to eat more watery foods that can dilute and weaken stomach acids.
