Healthy Digestion

Description :

Acid reflux is when some of the acid content of the stomach flows up into the esophagus - into the gullet, which moves food down from the mouth. The stomach contains a strong acid, hydrochloric acid, to help with the efficient digestion of food and to protect against, for example, bacteria. It is the burning sensation that you feel in the chest and throat just after a meal. It is also known as heartburn as a result of the formation of acids in the stomach. Acid reflux occurs because the smooth muscles and hormones in the lower oesophagus sphincter, which are responsible for the opening and the closing of the oesophagus end during swallowing, weaken. As a result the lower oesophagus sphincter doesn’t close and so cannot maintain the pressure between the stomach and the oesophagus. This makes it possible for the acids to back up causing acidity and heart burn.
