Boston, MA (PRWEB) January 24, 2014

Health Nutrition News has released a new video and article on treating acid reflux by eating specific probiotic rich foods. Although acid reflux disease, also known as gastroesophageal reflux disease (GERD), is extremely common and rarely serious, people who suffer its symptoms know how irritating it can be. Making a few lifestyle changes, using probiotic supplements, and including specific foods in a diet can treat cases of acid reflux.

The representative from Health Nutrition News discusses how bacterial overgrowth is a major contributor to acid reflux and restoring a healthy balance of intestinal bacteria is an important aspect of treatment. Along with performing several other functions essential to digestive health, beneficial bacteria (probiotics) protect against potential pathogens. The experts cite clinical studies that have shown how probiotics can prevent and treat hundreds of common ailments, including acid reflux problems. Probiotics are live micro-organisms that, when administered in adequate amounts, provide a health benefit to the host by restoring a healthy gut flora.

The diet foods suggested by the nutritionists are naturally fermented foods that help correct acid reflux problems. Some examples of fermented foods are fermented vegetables, yogurt, kefir, and miso. What’s more, fermented milk products like kefir and yogurt offer more benefits than beneficial bacteria alone, including minerals, vitamins, protein, amino acids, and healthy fats.

For those diets restrict dairy, but would still like to get the benefits of probiotics, homemade sauerkraut provides one of the widest varieties of beneficial bacteria that are known to protect against all kinds of digestive troubles including acid reflux problems. All of that said, probiotic supplements are sometimes necessary and can play a crucial role in treatment and recovery. For example, there are times when access to homemade sauerkraut or other fermented foods is impossible and it might be beneficial to acquire a probiotic supplement to take for acid reflux relief.
