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.
Acidity is triggered by a range of factors that contribute to the excessive production or reflux of stomach acid. Key causes are:
Poor dietary choices, such as consuming spicy, oily, or fatty foods, can elevate acidity risks.
High-stress levels can stimulate acid production in the stomach, leading to increased acidity.
The use of specific medications, especially those affecting stomach acid levels, can contribute to acidity.
Habits like smoking and indulging in oily or spicy foods can heighten susceptibility to acidity.
Conditions such as hiatal hernia, gastritis, or gastroesophageal reflux disease (GERD) can contribute to chronic acidity.
Consuming large meals or lying down immediately after eating can disrupt the normal functioning of the lower esophageal sphincter, causing acid reflux.
Pregnant women may experience acidity due to hormonal changes and pressure on the stomach.
Sedentary lifestyles may contribute to acidity; regular exercise can aid in digestion and prevent acid reflux.
