What causes acidity?

Acidity arises from an overproduction of stomach acid, causing gastric juices to flow from the stomach into the lower esophagus. This not only brings about stomach discomfort but also triggers symptoms such as a sour taste in the mouth, difficulty swallowing, indigestion, and chest or stomach pain. While occasional acidity might not signal serious health concerns, recurring episodes—occurring at least two or more days per week—could suggest an underlying disorder.

Identifying Signs of Acidity

Heartburn & Indigestion

Burning Sensation in the Chest or Upper Stomach Region, lasting from minutes to hours

Regurgitation

Sensing the Movement of Undigested Food, Bile, or Stomach Acid in the Throat

Sour Aftertaste

Detecting a lingering Bitter or Sour Taste
in the Mouth, often accompanied by Regurgitation

Difficulty Swallowing

Experiencing Difficulty in Swallowing as Excess Stomach Acid Causes a Sense
of Fullness, Slowing Food Movement
Through the Food Pipe

Sore Throat

Irritated vocal cords, hoarseness in voice

Root Causes of Acidity

Acidity is triggered by a range of factors that contribute to the excessive production or reflux of stomach acid. Key causes are:

  • Unhealthy Eating Habits

    Poor dietary choices, such as consuming spicy, oily, or fatty foods, can elevate acidity risks.

  • Excessive Stress

    High-stress levels can stimulate acid production in the stomach, leading to increased acidity.

  • Certain Medications

    The use of specific medications, especially those affecting stomach acid levels, can contribute to acidity.

  • Lifestyle Factors

    Habits like smoking and indulging in oily or spicy foods can heighten susceptibility to acidity.

  • Underlying Health Conditions

    Conditions such as hiatal hernia, gastritis, or gastroesophageal reflux disease (GERD) can contribute to chronic acidity.

  • Overeating

    Consuming large meals or lying down immediately after eating can disrupt the normal functioning of the lower esophageal sphincter, causing acid reflux.

  • Pregnancy

    Pregnant women may experience acidity due to hormonal changes and pressure on the stomach.

  • Lack of Physical Activity

    Sedentary lifestyles may contribute to acidity; regular exercise can aid in digestion and prevent acid reflux.
