    Popular stand-up comic Brian Regan has a sketch where he goes to the doctor plus gets a list of items that cause heartburn. He's dumbfounded. "Yeah, I learn this. I learn how to get it," he states with a confused watch his face, "It's like having a cannonball wound plus acquiring a list . . . '1) Don't stand straight facing a cannon.' I have a cannonball wound! Do you may have certain cannonball-wound ointment?"

    Sadly, Mr. Regan's hope to fight heartburn about a remedy-basis merely is not the ultimate answer. Taking antacids like Zantac plus Pepcid can alleviate the signs of heartburn temporarily, nevertheless they aren't the cure, plus heartburn can still result damage if it isn't prevented at the source.

    • Chocolate.Everything superior causes heartburn, evidently. Chocolate contains theobromine, another chemical which relaxes the LES plus lets acidity into the esophagus.
    • Fatty or fried foods plus large meals. Fatty food or eating large amounts slows down digestion, plus the longer food remains in the stomach, the more quickly the food can be forced into the esophagus.
    • Tobacco. The chemicals in smokes plus other cigarette products decrease the LES, consequently over time it just lets more food back to the esophagus.
    • Citrus fruits, tomatoes, plus other highly acidic foods.

    Avoiding the things inside list plus developing superior nourishment plus fitness habits can cut back found on the number of times you may have to take heartburn drugs, plus keeping the acidity from the esophagus will help it to last happily for much longer.
