The better digested our foods are, the less likely they are to cause occasional heartburn, making enzymes a great choice for relief.*
How does digestion affect heartburn?
While the foods we eat may have a big impact on whether or not we feel the symptoms of occasional heartburn, our digestion plays an equally important role. If our gut has difficulty breaking down difficult foods like carbs and fat, it can end up giving us a whole host of uncomfortable symptoms, including heartburn and indigestion.
How can enzymes help?
Enzymes are a great natural solution for digesting troublesome foods that cause occasional heartburn and indigestion.* Each type of enzyme targets and breaks down a different food, providing just the support the gut needs.* While enzymes naturally occur in the foods we eat, the process of cooking destroys them. Our levels of naturally-produced enzymes often lower with age, making it necessary to take an enzyme supplement for the proper digestion we need.
What is the difference between frequent and occasional heartburn?
Often at the pharmacy or your doctor's office, you may see products like proton pump inhibitors that are offered for those with frequent heartburn. Frequent heartburn is a medical condition best suited for these drugs. However, many individuals only experience heartburn occasionally — especially from certain foods or diets. Dietary supplements like Acid Soothe can support occasional heartburn sufferers, without the negative side effects of frequent heartburn medications.*
