Although prevalent, heartburn is a painful condition.
People say it feels like a burning, agonizing agony that travels from the lower chest to the mouth. Another typical symptom of heartburn is a sour aftertaste in the tongue.
The following foods, according to Healthline, can induce heartburn:
Spicy foods frequently have the side impact of heartburn. It's unclear precisely how they cause heartburn, though.
It has been demonstrated that chilli caps can improve gastric accommodation, or the relaxation of the top part of the stomach, in people with GERD.
Studies show that GERD patients have a stronger stomach accommodation response. Because the LES is more flexible, heartburn might happen.
Onions, especially raw onions, may trigger heartburn, according to several studies.
Like the other things on this list, onions frequently cause heartburn in people with GERD. It is believed that onions make heartburn worse, though the precise mechanism is unclear.
It was discovered that individuals with heartburn would consume a standard cheeseburger one day, followed by an onion-topped variation of the same burger the following day. When compared to the burger that didn't have an onion, the heartburn sensations from the onion burger were significantly worse.
These mints, like peppermint and spearmint, are frequently used to address digestive problems. On the other hand, some research suggest that these mints may cause heartburn.
Research has demonstrated that peppermint lowers LES pressure and causes dyspepsia.
After consuming citrus drinks, heartburn symptoms could appear. Heartburn is a typical sign of gastroesophageal reflux disease (GERD).
The precise process by which citrus juices cause heartburn is unknown.
Another well-known cause of heartburn is eating chocolate. Chocolate's cacao and caffeine can loosen the LES and increase acid exposure in the stomach.
Studies have shown that eating chocolate can reduce LES pressure, which may help to explain why so many people feel heartburn afterward. Eliminating chocolate from the diet may reduce heartburn symptoms, but this has not yet been demonstrated.
It might be a good idea to cut out chocolate from your diet if you experience heartburn after consuming it.
Alcohol consumption ranging from moderate to excessive may make GERD symptoms like heartburn worse.
Because the LES is relaxed when drinking alcohol, stomach acid can leak into the esophagus and cause heartburn. This is what causes the burning sensation.
Fries and pizza are examples of foods rich in fat that can cause heartburn.
Although researchers are still learning about the processes by which fats promote GERD symptoms, high fat diets may exacerbate heartburn by promoting the release of chemicals that irritate the esophagus.
