Stomach acid can accelerate the digestion of food and promote food absorption by the body. It is an indispensable presence in the stomach. When there is too much secretion, it will have negative effects, easily damage the mucous membranes, and bring some uncomfortable reactions to the body. When these reactions of the body occur, without timely conditioning, the stomach will be further damaged.
How does the body react when stomach acid increases?
When there is too much acid in the stomach, the most common reactions are acid reflux, heartburn, and burning. Because the acidic liquid increases, it needs to be excreted in time, and the acidic liquid will flow back, making people feel acidic. The acidic liquid is very corrosive. When the acidic liquid is refluxed, it will cause a burning sensation in the back of the thorax, which is often called heartburn. At this time, the sensitivity of the mucosa will also increase, and a series of burning sensations will occur. There are also many people who experience digestive discomfort when their stomach acid increases.
Increased gastric acid is related to people’s emotional factors and diet. Under stress, depression and fatigue, nerves that control gastric acid secretion will be stimulated to accelerate acidic fluid secretion. Irregular diet and frequent cold and spicy irritating food will also have a bad effect on the stomach, making acidic liquids increase. It is necessary to release stress and relieve tension during conditioning, but there should be some taboos in diet.
Most carbonated drinks are acidic and will increase the rate of acidic fluid secretion in the body. Carbonated drinks also contain carbon dioxide and other gases, and intake of carbonated drinks will increase gas intake. A large amount of gas mixed with acidic liquid will cause secondary damage to the mucosa. After the body has an uncomfortable reaction, carbonated drinks are the first food to be avoided.
Similar to carbonated beverages, starchy foods also produce a large amount of gas when they are broken down. They also cause stomach damage. Foods with high starch content are not suitable for ingestion, such as potatoes, potatoes, taro, and lotus root. , Pumpkin, banana, etc. It is worth mentioning that you can ingest a small amount of noodles. Noodles are slightly alkaline and can neutralize acidity and reduce the amount of acidic liquids.
Coffee strong tea should also avoid mouth. The caffeine in coffee strong tea will have an adverse effect on the body. It also has a certain irritation that will promote the secretion of acidic liquids. Some people will add a lot of sugar to the coffee when they drink coffee to increase the taste of coffee. The intake of sugar will promote the secretion of gastric juice more quickly, which is undoubtedly to blame the stomach.
One type of vegetable that is easily overlooked is broccoli. Broccoli is a very good health ingredient. If there is no problem with the stomach, eating broccoli is very good, but when the gastric acid is secreted too much, it should not be eaten again, because broccoli contains a lot of soluble dietary fiber, and this kind of diet Fiber will produce a lot of gas when the stomach breaks down, which will cause the stomach to be harmed.
While avoiding these foods, we also hope that everyone will develop a regular diet and eat regularly on a daily basis so that the stomach can adapt to people’s eating habits. In the long run, it will not only relieve the stomach acid, but also reduce the chance of stomach problems. Many people have heard the saying that ten people have nine stomachs, and the reasons for ten people with nine stomachs are becoming more and more irregular with the current young people’s eating habits. If this can be changed, the stomach will benefit from it.
