How do people use lemon or lime juice for heartburn?


Answer by  HelpChat (494)

It is a common misconception that the root cause of heartburn is too much stomach acid. Many believe that the real problem is actually too little stomach acid, which results in improper digestion. Squeeze a lemon or lime in a glass of hot water and drink after eating.

Lime juice can be used to resolve heartburn issues by drinking one fluid ounce of it, as if it were a shot. To prevent heartburn put some lemon or lime juice in warm cup of water after eating and drink it slowly like it was cup of hot coffee.

Using a citric juice, as well as using a Tbs. of apple cider vinegar, is often done to promote digestion. Without the proper acids in your stomach, digestion is hindered, leading to increased heartburn, so by adding something acidic, digestion is thought to increase thus easing heart burn.

I've never used lemon or lime juice for heartburn, I feel like that would only make the heartburn worse. The best thing, I've heard, is Zantac heartburn medicine. Give that a try.

As odd as it sounds, heartburn is caused by a LACK of acid in the stomach. To balance the acidity in the stomach, people will often drink some sort of acid, such as vinegar, or lemon/lime juice. You can add it into some water to make it easier to drink.
