Goodnight Mr. Bhayu. Thank you for consulting HealthReplies.com
GERD is a condition where the boundary valve between the esophagus and the stomach is not closed completely, this causes acid to easily return to the esophagus, which causes discomfort in the chest such as burning and bitter behind the tongue. The increase in stomach acid can be triggered by several things, namely foods that are too spicy / sour, foods / drinks that trigger acid such as coffee / tea / chocolate, the gap between eating and sleeping that is too narrow ie <2 hours, eating foods that trigger acid without any neutral food that went in before. So to prevent an increase in stomach acid supplements should be eaten after eating this is related to the acid content in these supplements.
