Burning, chest tightness, pain, and inflammation. Heartburn and reflux can be irritating or downright painful – affecting approximately 1 in 5 adults. Heartburn/ GERD occurs when stomach acid backs up into the tube that carries food from your mouth to your stomach (esophagus). Unfortunately, many foods and beverages can trigger heartburn, including chocolate, peppermint, alcohol, and fatty foods. Acidux uses a unique blend of 6 herbs that help to relieve inflammatory conditions of the digestive system. Calendula and meadowsweet offer antacid, anti-inflammatory effects. Meanwhile, chamomile, licorice, and ginger settle the stomach, even as marshmallow soothes the tissues of the digestive tract in a powerful combination that helps to quench the fires of heartburn.
