The Science Behind TUMSHeartburn can be triggered by a number of things:
• Spicy or fatty foods
• Eating before bed
About HeartburnFirst of all, heartburn has nothing to do with your heart. At the bottom of your esophagus there is a circular band of muscles, known as the lower esophageal sphincter, which acts as a valve to the stomach. The lower esophageal sphincter muscle (LES) allows food to enter the stomach and prevents stomach acids from coming back up into the esophagus. In some people the LES muscle doesn’t open and close properly. When stomach acid refluxes back into the esophagus it can cause a burning sensation in the chest. Since the the esophagus doesn’t have the same protective lining as the stomach, the acid can irritate sensitive tissues, which causes the pain known as heartburn.
What foods can cause heartburn?Although the actual cause of heartburn is physical, certain types of food tend to trigger heartburn. For example, chocolate contains compounds that could relax the LES muscle and allow the acid to enter the esophagus. Other foods, like spicy food and tomato base foods, directly irritate the esophagus. Some of the foods that can trigger heartburn are shown to the left.
What behaviors can trigger heartburn for some people?There are certain behaviors that can cause heartburn. Making a few minor adjustments in your eating habits could help. Here are four habits that could put pressure on your stomach that you should try to avoid if you want to reduce your chances of triggering heartburn:
• Eating too fast
• Eating a large meal
• Lying down after a meal
• Exercising after a meal
What physical changes can trigger heartburn?Your own body can act as a trigger and cause the pain of heartburn. It can be anything from pregnancy, anxiety, or weakened esophagus.
What can TUMS do to help?TUMS antacid, America’s #1 antacid,* goes to work in seconds. Many other heartburn medications are absorbed into the bloodstream and can take hours or days to fully work. TUMS antacid travels directly to the source of the heartburn. Once there, it neutralizes acid on contact for fast relief. And TUMS antacid tastes great too, giving you more flavor options that anyone else.TUMS antacid goes to work in seconds to start buffering and neutralizing acid in the esophagus and it keeps working as it dissolves, neutralizing gastric acid in the stomach.
