Can Heartburn Sufferers Consume Products Containing Vitamin C?
Assalamu’alikum Doctor, If you have an ulcer, do you consume Zevit Grow?
Hello Adi Pratama Putra, thank you for asking HealthReplies.com.
Heartburn is a term to describe gastric pain. Gastric pain itself can be caused by dyspepsia syndrome, gastritis, peptic ulcers, and others. This condition can be exacerbated by stress, eating too much and fast, late eating, smoking, drinking alcohol, taking certain drugs.
The product you mentioned in the question contains vitamin C and is acidic. This acid content can increase stomach acid, especially if you consume it in an empty stomach condition. Therefore, if you want to consume the product, make sure you have eaten heavily beforehand. If you are still nauseous, heartburn, feels painful, and become a lot of belching, it is advisable not to consume the product. The natural source of vitamin C can also be obtained from fresh fruits with bright colors such as apples, oranges, papayas, dragon fruit, etc. If your heartburn still feels, you can take antacids (over-the-counter at pharmacies) 1 hour before eating or immediately after eating.
