As we age, the digestive enzymes in the stomach get depleted, consequently producing less acid than required, thus resulting in acid reflux. The stomach, in turn, has to work harder to break down the food. The churning causes the stomach juices to enter other unwanted areas of the body. A common effect of this is the burning sensation felt in the middle of the chest, known as heartburn. Heartburn is a painful aspect of the aging process. Also, acid reflux may be quite limiting when it comes to enjoying your favorite foods. Here are some home remedies for heartburn that offer long-term solutions.
