Pass on any fruits in the citrus family. Instead, go for low-acidic options like berries, bananas, or pears tossed over low-fat yogurt.
Skip spicy fried foods and reach for grilled meats and veggies. If that sounds too bland, remember that most herbs aren’t off limits.
If you’re having pasta, don’t toss it in tomato-based sauces. Instead, put pesto sauce on your noodles. Go easy on the garlic though, since garlic can be a possible heartburn trigger.
Say no to coffee, caffeinated beverages, late-night snacks, and peppermint tea. Try any other caffeine-free herbal tea instead.
SLEEP WITHOUT STRESS
Raise The Head Of Your Bed
Research shows that elevating the head of your bed results in fewer acid reflux episodes. You can also try a wedge pillow if you don’t want to put blocks under the bed itself.
Slip Into Something More Comfortable
Clothing that’s tight around your stomach adds pressure, which can force acid up. Try changing into loose workout clothes or pajamas to prevent this from happening.
Sleep On Your Left Side
People who sleep on the left side tend to have shorter bouts of reflux than those who sleep on their right.
Don’t Lie Down Too Early In The Evening
You might feel like relaxing on the sofa after dinner, but try to sit up or stand for three hours after eating. Gravity will help keep the acid down where it belongs.
Imagine Uninterrupted Sleep
Don't let frequent heartburn wake you up. Nexium® 24HR reduces heartburn interruptions to help you sleep peacefully through the night.
Switch Up Your Workout
When it comes to your digestive system, not all workouts are created equal. High-impact exercise, like running and jumping, triggers heartburn more than gentle forms like swimming.
Time It Right
Hitting the gym right after a meal can be a recipe for heartburn. Wait at least two hours before working out.
Lay Off The Protein And Fat
If you work out at the end of the day, don’t order a steak burrito bowl for lunch. Foods high in fat can bring on the burn, as they can cause the muscles keeping the acid in the stomach to relax at the wrong time.
Fill a water bottle and sip before and during your workout. Water keeps your digestive tract running smoothly.
Nexium® 24HR has really worked for me. I even put it to the test with spicy tacos, red wine, coffee, and salsa in one night. Never felt any heartburn at all. I have suffered for years. So glad I tried Nexium® 24HR!
