Apple cider vinegar is continuing to trend like crazy these days

Some people have claimed that taking apple cider vinegar has helped to relieve symptoms of heartburn

In cases where the acid reflux is caused by low stomach acid, apple cider vinegar can help because its acidity can help assist in the digestion of food

If food is better digested in the stomach, it is able to empty into the small intestine at the appropriate rate, thus reducing reflux

However, if the acid reflux is the result of too much stomach acid, apple cider vinegar is like throwing fuel onto the fire

Additionally, if you have ulcers, taking apple cider vinegar can be incredibly irritating, painful, and dangerous

Gut specialists can evaluate your need for digestive enzymes that contain HCl and pepsin, which your stomach naturally produces

They can also assess for gut bacteria imbalances, bacteria/yeast overgrowth, compromised gallbladder function
