10 Foods That Stop Heartburn

Ginger

Ginger has been long used in folk medicine for treating heartburn and acid reflux. People often chug ginger ale to deal with an upset stomach and similar digestive problems. The benefit comes from anti-inflammatory properties that would reduce the inflammation caused by acid in the esophagus. It is easy to add ginger to the diet, such as chewing on like candy, steeping in boiled water for tea, or grating and slicing into recipes. You can also toss some ginger in a smoothie, water, or juice and take a sip after each meal. [2]
