5 foods that will reduce your heartburn

Heartburn is a problem that can occur with digestion, but since many people experience it as a burning sensation in their chest, the name “heartburn” was coined. A number of different foods can cause heartburn in people, and it likely varies a bit from one person to another.

(1) Melons

Scoring a bit higher on the alkaline scale than bananas, melons, with a pH of about 6.1, are also an excellent choice for breakfast or a snack any time of the day. When they are at their best, they are very sweet and juciy, especially watermelon

(2) Bananas

Bananas help reduce their acid reflux, while a small minority – around 1 percent – say that they actually cause more digestive problems than they help. Bananas have a pH of around 5.6, which makes them a logical choice for most people who suffer from heartburn.

(3) Salads

Salad provides a host of benefits beyond just helping to cut down on your chances of experiencing heartburn, so there is more than one good reason to make it a regular part of your diet. Although most ingredients in a salad are great for reducing heartburn, it should be noted that things like onions and tomatoes might be best left out of the mix since they do contain higher levels of acid.

(4) Ginger

It’s quite unlikely that you’ll want to pick up a piece of raw ginger and start chomping on it, but it can be used to prepare many dishes and give them that unique and distinctive flavor. It’s been used for centuries to help ease digestive problems and for good reason. In addition to using it while cooking, it can also be added to smoothies to provide a little heartburn-busting goodness to an already-healhty drink.

(5) Oatmeal

Oatmeal has a lot going for it, and all of it is good. Known mostly as a breakfast staple, oatmeal can be worked into a number of other things including cookies. Oatmeal has the ability to help soak up excess acid in the stomach, and make heartburn less likely. Oatmeal is also very filling, and is something that will stick with you and help keep you feeling full for hours.
