In today's time it would not be wrong to say “You are what you digest”.
Now, the question arises how to identify, know the exact reasons and find out simple yet best techniques to have instant relief from gas or acidity. Jump in!
What Is Gas or Acidity?
Does it mean there is an excess of acid in our Stomach?
Is this the reason why we take Antacids, so that acid in our stomach gets dissolved? No, it's not like that.
The cause of the disease is our stomach’s inability to produce enough Acid to digest the food. Our Stomach acid is our friend and not our enemy.
Using Antacid can provide you temporary relief for your problem but it doesn't get cured and relapses with more force the other time.
You should not try to reduce stomach acid as many crucial functions of our body depend on it.
- The Stomach Acid helps in complete absorption of Nutrients, Vitamins, Minerals, Antioxidants, Polyphenols and much more.
- It holds the potential to kill any sort of bad bacteria or viruses that goes to the stomach via. our food.
- It helps in the better digestion of food because if your stomach acid is high, you will not face the issue of Acid Reflux.
Reasons For Gas or Acidity
- The biggest underlying reason for gas or acidity in the low production of the stomach acid while its the myth deeply ingrained in our mind that acidity occurs due to the presence of excess acid.
It's really not like that, it's because of the low levels of stomach acid or HCL required for the complete digestion of the food, and hence it remains undigested producing harmful toxins which can contribute to the onset of various diseases. Having low levels of Hydrochloric Acid (HCL) can result in issues like Mineral shortages, Autoimmune reactions and skin issues.
- The other reason which equally contributes to Acidity is stress, it sucks a lot of things from our body. If your mind is involved in multiple tasks, you are disconnected with your food and result in eating food quite fast or rather gulping it.
There are multiple enzymes involved in the proper digestion and absorption of food, hence it becomes necessary to maintain good relations with your food, so that the gas is not formed out of it.
- If you take heavy or hard to digest foods like Pulses, certain lentils are mainly carbohydrates and high protein that sets in the stomach, if there is not enough production of Acid to digest and it starts to ferment leading to the formation of Gas.
Formation of gas is a red flag which states to avoid eating those foods in the evening time.
- Acidity occurs to those who intake a lot of Anti-Inflammatory Medicines like the medicines you take for Headache, Fever, Cough and cold all of these largely reduces the stomach acid.
This should never happen as these lead to numerous deficiencies in your body to which occurs dark circles, skin loses its vitality and elasticity, brittle nails.
- Water having PH level seven is Alkaline, so avoid taking water with food as it calms down or rather extinguishes the acidic environment of the stomach required for the proper digestion and it doesn't move down leading to Acidity and Acid Reflux.
- One of the most neglected factors of gas or acidity is lying down after having meals but is equally important to look after it.
As you lie down a lot of pressure is put to the Cardiac Sphincter and it faces a violent push. Therefore I recommend not eating at least two hours before sleep.
Functions of Stomach Acid (The Science behind it)
The Acid in our stomach is very important because it digests our food. It takes out the protein from our food, but why does our body need Protein? To make our skin tight.
If you face hair fall, or your skin has become loose or saggy, if your nails do not grow, the reason behind it is that Protein is not being digested for which level of stomach acid is required to carry out its breakdown process.
Stomach acid or Hydrochloric acid (HCL) and other gastric juices plays a key role in destroying the bad bacterial growth, thus helping in the expansion of the good bacteria essential for our digestive organs to carry on its process without any hindrance.
As the ingestion of food takes place, our stomach gets the signal to get ready to produce the enzymes and the acid for the digestion process. Our Stomach and food pipe are divided by a gate known as Cardiac Sphincter because it has direct relation with the heart.
Cardiac Sphincter is a muscle that becomes tight and narrow as soon as it gets the signal that food is coming, and forms a gap from where the food gets down into the stomach.
But due to less acid in the stomach the food doesn't get digested and instead of going down it reverses upwards, because of the presence of gas in the stomach and also due to the gap that stays open.
Although what should happen is as soon as the food enters the stomach, the gate (Cardiac Sphincter) must be closed but it becomes tight because of the stress in our environmental factors.
In Fact, every muscle gets affected by the stress factors as the body starts preparing itself to run away from diseases.
Your brain and your thoughts are related to digestion. Know this!
