How to Get Rid of Acidity

Stomach acid helps digest food, activate enzymes, and destroy germs that make it to your stomach. However, stomach acid can also cause “heartburn” that burning or uncomfortable feeling in your chest. Chronic heartburn, also known as Gastroesophageal Reflux Disease (GERD) or “acid reflux disease,” isn’t due to “too much” acid, but acid in the wrong place (your esophagus instead of your stomach). Excessive production of stomach acid can cause erosions in the stomach and the duodenum (part of your small intestine), called ulcers or "Peptic Ulcer Disease". courtesy:
