Does lime juice provide heartburn relief?
Acid reflux is when acid burns your esophagus. I know lime is citrus, which is acid - so I am wondering whether anyone else could find perhaps Ayurvedic advice online (URL resources, if possible). Additional Details
When you're at a bar; "Bitters & Soda", a carbonated drink made with bitters drunk quickly eliminates heartburn as well as eating an apple, but I am expecting an answer providing a supporting web link.
The last thing you want to do is increase the acid you already have. Lime juice would increase the problem not solve it. If it is minor heart burn vanilla ice cream works the best. I had really bad acid reflux through 2 pregnancies and it was the only thing that worked. Good luck
Wjat's Ayurvedic? Well I don't think lime juice relief heartburn! Chamomile tea is what I use when I get heartburn!
don't.............it just increase it.........better to just eat bread..........
It worked for me.
A tspn of baking soda in warm water with a 1/2 juice from a lime.
Got it from an ayurvedic source. Dr. Vasant Lad. "Ayurvedic Cooking for Self-Healing"
(sorry no website)
Old bartenders remedy for heart burn and uneasy stomach: Half a glass of Sprite or 7up, no ice, shake table salt 3 or 4 times into the glass. As it foams up drink it down. "Bartender's Bromo"
Did you know that foods are either acid-forming or alkaline forming? Too many acid forming foods definitely contribute to heartburn. Alkaline forming foods neutralize acid in the human body. Lime juice, in addition to most uncooked fruits and vegetables, is alkaline-forming, and in the human body it neutralizes acid and helps to maintain a normal pH. I do not get heart-burn (maybe once in 10 years), but I eat alot of alkaline forming foods. I think that lime juice would be beneficial for heartburn. But I also know it is better to prevent heartburn by eating some uncooked vegetables with your cooked foods. It wouldn't hurt to try it.
There is a definite possibility that lime juice (and other citrus juices) may improve some cases of acid reflux.
One possible mechanism is via D-limonene - a component of various citrus fruits, including limes. Here is a quote from the scientific literature: "Because of its gastric acid neutralizing effect and its support of normal peristalsis, it (D-limonene) has also been used for relief of heartburn and gastroesophageal reflux (GERD)."
Best wishes and good luck.
Yes "Fitness-fan" does have correct answer.
The magical chemo-lab called human body is actually changing the acid in the citrus fruit into alkaline substance and helping to relieve the burn in your stomach. It also help to alkalize the whole of human body, which, due to the junk-food we consume is more on the acidic side.
Lime and all other citrus are alkaline forming foods. These are commonly referred to as alkaline foods.
Therefore like other citrus lime if taken by itself or diluted in pure water should provide heartburn relief.
For faster relief go on 4 days of pure fresh raw fruits, nuts, raisins, and water.
First thing in the morning have a glass of orange juice followed by a bowl of mixed fruits. Water in between. Then 2 hours later have some mixed nuts and raisins. Later in the day have fruits again and mixed nuts, water in between. The raisins and nuts should created a crave for water . Drink up to 10 glasses of water each day.
You have this problem because your digestive system is too acidic. (The optimum pH range for human tissues is between 7.35 to 7.45) It is this acidity that is causing the burning problem. You need to have more alkali forming foods in your diet.
Whither you decide to try the above or not, your meals should mostly be looking like these:
1). A meal consisting of of meat or fish,
1 or 2 complex carbohydrate (eg. yam, potatoes, pumpkin etc)
a mixture of raw vegetables, (eg. lettuce, tomatoes, cucumber, broccoli, yellow or red sweet pepper, shredded carrots)
varied mixture of steam vegetables (eg a leafy vegetable and/or string beans, or a vegetable salad)
If you'd like to add drink - preferably vegetable juice.
2). Another is a mixture of different fruits with nuts and seeds
3). Another is a mixture of different raw vegetables, nuts, and seeds.
You should be eating more of the alkaline forming foods. The following will give you a list of acid forming foods and alkaline forming foods.
The following will give you more explanation about alkali forming foods:
Please do not eat fruits with any other food or within an hour before or after any other meal. You should be eating fruits as a meal. The same thing goes for fruit drink.
