Excessive alcohol consumption, a meal that is too large, fatty or spicy, can put a strain on our stomach and cause heartburn, also called heartburn or acid reflux. This phenomenon occurs when stomach acid rises into the esophagus, resulting in a burning sensation in the chest and more or less intense discomfort. Generally benign and short-lived, these can still be annoying if they are frequent. Luckily, there’s a simple remedy to soothe them that you probably already have in your cupboard.

For fans of coffee all day long, beware of gastric reflux which can cause you discomfort! Due to its caffeine content, it makes reflux worse. If, however, you cannot do without hot drinks during the day, prefer tea, and particularly green tea, which contains fewer acids than black tea.

Dr Marie-Antoine Séjean, nutritionist, gives us a rather original tip for consuming your tea. Called “Russian tea”, this technique consists of letting your tea steep for as long as possible, keeping only one bag at most. To relieve your intestinal discomfort, you know what you have to do!

Aside from green tea, there are other alternatives to soothe your sore stomach. And among them, we find almond milk. The latter is alkaline, and easily neutralizes acidity. It is preferable to cow’s milk, since the latter has a high fat content which can aggravate reflux.

Known for its anti-inflammatory properties, ginger is also recommended when it comes to relieving heartburn. Whether consumed in your recipes or as an infusion, we highly recommend it!

Note that it remains important to hydrate throughout the day. According to Dr Marie-Antoine Séjean, “too concentrated blood can generate acidity”, hence the importance of drinking 1.5 L of water per day.
