Victims of acid reflux are tortured by heartburn every day. While there are over-the-counter medicines like antacids that can provide relief, many of these treatments only offer short-term solutions. The first step that an individual can take in the treatment of heartburn, is a change of diet and lifestyle. Certain foods, such as citrus and spice, along with specific activities like smoking and eating three hours or less before bed, can aggravate acid reflux.
After these lifestyle changes, a healthy and all-natural way to treat acid reflux is with aloe.
Aloe’s soothing properties treat pain associated with acid reflux that forms in the esophagus and all the way to the large intestine. Aloe vera is recognized as a natural treatment of inflammation due to the bradykinin, salicylate, and other natural steroids it contains, as well as plenty of vitamins A, B, C, and E. These vitamins are anti-oxidants as well, helping to dispel toxins caused by acid reflux, while eliminating swelling.
By reducing hydrochloric acid production and slowing gastric emptying, aloe vera effectively helps to make digestion more effective, while producing less acid.
Finally, Aloe actually coats the lining of the stomach through a special polysaccharide found in the plant, which also aids in tissue repair and growth.
With such advantages, any acid reflux sufferer should add aloe to their diet. However, it is important to ingest aloe that is specifically prepared for internal use, to ensure maximum benefits.
