Gastroesophageal reflux - also known as reflux or acid regurgitation - is a disorder that occurs when the stomach contents return to the esophagus, or the muscular tube that conveys food and fluid from the mouth to the stomach, causing a painful burning sensation in the stomach, due to the acid gastric juices that corrode the walls.

When it occurs regularly and frequently (more than twice a week), it is called gastroesophageal reflux disease.

However, getting rid of it is simple, just adhere to a diet that contains the following seven foods.

  • 1. KEFIR. It is a drink obtained from the fermentation of milk that helps digestion and soothes the digestive tract. It has a fresh taste and is very nutritious; a perfect substitute for dairy products which, on the other hand, should be avoided in case of acid reflux. 
  • 2. FERMENTED VEGETABLES. Kimchi, sauerkraut or other fermented vegetables also contain lactobacillus, which is extremely effective in preventing heartburn.

  • 3. ALMONDS. Rich in healthy nutrients, they have a high mineral content (calcium and magnesium) which rebalance the acidity in a natural way; it is advisable to consume them especially on an empty stomach or between meals, as snacks. 
  • 4. APPLE CIDER VINEGAR. It is advisable to mix a spoonful of raw apple vinegar in a cup of water and drink it before meals. It can improve digestion, but only in the case of a lack of acid production by the stomach, as it activates pepsin, an enzyme that digests proteins. 
  • 5. COCONUT WATER. Rich in potassium and electrolytes, it helps the body to stay hydrated. It is advisable to drink it during the day and before going to bed; it can also be transformed into kefir, increasing its effectiveness.

  • 6. GREEN LEAF VEGETABLES. Rich in nutrients, these vegetables are also easier to digest, so consuming them is a great way to prevent acid reflux. Also try cucumbers and artichokes, both of which are alkaline. 
  • 7. GINGER. It has protective effects on the stomach, helps to regulate acidity, stimulates digestion, and the production of digestive enzymes. It should be taken after meals, in a tea with honey, but be careful: in some cases, ginger may have an irritating effect.
