Why Heartburn Happens

There is no one thing that triggers heartburn in everyone. Your body is unique. Sometimes what triggers heartburn is an effect of your body’s internal processes; other times it can be triggered by food and drinks, your lifestyle, weight, pregnancy or medical conditions.

But no matter the trigger, heartburn can be treated.

^ It’s possible while taking Nexium 24HR. Use as directed for 14 days to treat frequent heartburn. Do not take for more than 14 days or more often than every 4 months unless directed by a doctor. Not for immediate relief.
