Heartburn, Indigestion and Misery on Me

October 23, 2019

Heartburn and indigestion are common problems that can make eating difficult. There are several things that could potentially cause these problems, and the solution may depend on the cause. Poor gut health is believed to be one of the root causes of many common health issues, and repairing the gut may be key to heartburn and indigestion relief. In today's episode - Heartburn, Indigestion and Misery On Me - we'll discuss some common causes, and what you can do about it.

 

Common Causes of Heartburn:

  • Laying Down After Eating
  • Low Stomach Acid
  • Obesity
  • Overuse of Ibuprofen
  • Hiatal Hernia
  • Smoking

Heartburn and indigestion can be difficult to get over, and each person is different. If you have low stomach acid, then supplementing with betaine may help. Quitting smoking and maintaining a healthy weight may also help, as well as provide other health benefits. Avoiding large meals, especially at night, and not laying down after eating may also help reduce heartburn and indigestion. A healthy gut is necessary for overall good health, so do your best to keep your gut happy and healthy.

 

Products Mentioned in Today's Show

GI Support Vanilla - GI Support includes a high-dose of L-glutamine (4 g), which serves as nutrition for the gut lining. It provides 400 mg of deglycyrrhized licorice root extract (DGL) and 75 mg of aloe vera extract, both of which protect and promote the health of the gut mucosa. N-acetyl glucosamine and zinc may help boost GI integrity.

 

Acetyl L-Carnitine - The acetyl group can serve as a metabolic source of acetylcholine, a brain neurotransmitter, while the L-carnitine component carries fatty acids into mitochondria of nerve, heart, and muscle cells for use in energy production. Other actions benefit membrane stability, production of nerve growth factor, and cerebral blood flow.
