Acid reflux is when stomach acid rises up past your stomach into your oesophagus, which can bring with it symptoms of heart burn, like chest pain and a burning sensation in the chest and throat.
Acid reflux is most commonly caused by excess stomach acid through diet and food choices, as well as how much you eat, amongst other factors too, however these are the external variables you are able to control.
To manage symptoms of acid reflux and to treat it you can make a few lifestyle changes like controlling the types of food you eat which may cause the body to produce excess acid. Controlling how much you eat can help to manage symptoms too. If you have implemented these actions but still find you are suffering from acid reflux symptoms, another method of acid reflux treatment is acid reflux tablets.
Acid reflux tablets are similar to heartburn tablets as they work to neutralise stomach acid. The way in which the do this is by counteracting acid with alkalines which are contained within antacids. Alkalines and antacids are on the opposite end of the pH scale to acids, so using these balances out the acidity levels of your stomach. They also contain ingredients such as aniseed which works as an anti-inflammatory to help cool the burn and soothe your stomach and throat.
