Take An Amino Acid Supplement When You Have A History Of GERD And Hiatal Hernias
Sorry to ask. If I have a history of GERD u0026amp; HIATUS HERNIA. I want to consume Fitness supplements like L-Carnitine for fat burning / diet. Is it safe for me?
Hello Anton, Thank you for the question.
Gastroesophageal reflux disease (GERD) is a condition where stomach acid returns to the esophagus due to weakening of the lower part of the esophagus. Hiatus hernia is a condition in which a portion of the upper part of the stomach enters the chest cavity through a gap in the diaphragm muscle. Both of these conditions cause similar symptoms: burning rada in the pit of the stomach or chest, often belching, sour or bitter taste in the mouth, shortness of breath. L-Carnitine is an amino acid that can convert fat into energy. This supplement can cause side effects such as nausea, vomiting, heartburn, and diarrhea. Although there are potential side effects on the digestive tract, you may try using this supplement. However, if there are annoying side effects, then you should stop taking this supplement. Side effects can generally disappear after stopping use of this product. Do not hesitate to consult the closest general practitioner if you experience any annoying side effects for more than 3 days. Please follow the product usage instructions on the product packaging.
Hopefully this information helps you.
