Antacids

Antacids

What is antacid?
Antacids are substances that are taken to neutralize too much acid in the stomach. Too much acid is what causes heartburn and other stomach illnesses.

How do antacids work?
The antacids work by coating the stomach; thereby neutralizing excess acid. It should be taken 1 hour after meals or when GERD usually happens. However, if you experience symptoms right after meals, it may be best to take antacid before meal time.

This come in either liquid or tablet forms that are sometimes chewable. The liquid works faster in providing relief from symptoms. However, please be forewarned that symptoms are only temporary and antacids do not prevent the symptoms from coming back.

What are the active ingredients present in antacids?
All antacids contain at least one of these: calcium, magnesium, sodium and aluminum.

There are times when we suddenly feel a sharp pain in our stomach or get indigestion. It can also be because we are experiencing heartburn. Heartburn is a common reaction among people who experience a high level of acid content in their stomach. And this can be caused by so many factors on top of the food choices that we eat.
