If you’ve ever experienced a burning sensation in your chest after you eat, you’re certainly not alone! Acid reflux, or gastroesophageal reflux disease (GERD), is a massive worldwide problem. So many people are suffering from this on a daily basis and it is likely due to confusion and misinformation we have been given on how to properly treat our body.
What if we told you, you could completely eliminate heartburn by relieving the root cause of the problem: low stomach acid. It is a common misconception that heartburn, indigestion and acid reflux are caused by too much stomach acid, when in all seriousness – it’s not enough! Evidence indicates that probiotics can help protect the stomach lining and prevent regurgitation.
Why is stomach acid important for the body?
Stomach acid, or gastric acid, is a watery, colorless fluid that’s produced by your stomach’s lining. It’s highly acidic and helps break down food for easier digestion. This helps your body absorb nutrients more easily as food moves through your digestive tract. In fact, stomach acid actually helps with vitamin B12 absorption too!
What is Acid Reflux? Here are acid reflux symptoms
Heartburn – This is a burning pain sensation that’s often felt in the lower section of the chest, essentially where the esophagus lays. The burning sensation can even move up the throat, depending on the severity of the acid reflux. It’s important to note that despite its name, this condition has nothing to do with the heart.
Regurgitation – Regurgitation is the sensation of acid backing up through the throat and at times to the back of the mouth. This sensation produces a bitter or sour taste and is often accompanied by wet burps.
Dyspepsia – Dyspepsia is a medical syndrome often characterized by general stomach discomfort. Dyspepsia can cause burping, nausea after eating, stomach fullness, bloating, and upper abdominal pain.
So, how does drinking Jun help?
Lucky for all of us, Jun is packed with both prebiotics + probiotics! The prebiotics come from the raw honey while the probiotics come from the fermentation process.
Fermented vegetables and foods & drinks (like Jun!) have probiotic effects that can improve digestion, fight harmful bacteria and reduce inflammation from low stomach acid. Spread the word! Taking handfuls of tums is old news! Eat + drink fermented foods as if they were a prescription and we bet you’ll be feeling better in no time!
