Magnesium Remedy
for Heartburn REVEALED

Here we are discussing whether magnesium for heartburn can be depended upon.

Heartburn, that defines a burning sensation behind the chest bone, is felt when part of the acidic stomach contents occasionally reflux back into the esophagus (tube that carries food and beverages into the stomach) due to the inappropriate opening of the lower esophageal sphincter (LES). Since the inner lining of the esophagus is not so adequately reinforced with mucosa like the stomach, it gets irritated, thus causing the burning sensation in the chest (mistakenly considered as near the heart) - this is why it is commonly referred to as "heartburn".

As one of the commonest symptoms of gastroesophageal reflux disease or GERD, it affects millions of Americans who turn to anti-acidic formulations for relief from the burning sensation and the accompanying discomfort. Since magnesium hydroxide can readily interact with the acidic fluid, thus neutralizing it quickly, providing the much needed relief, magnesium for heartburn have gained in popularity. Available in emulsified form, it can be taken neat and being almost tasteless, creates no problems too.

However, most of the anti-acidic formulations have certain basic disadvantages as well as side effects that are harmful to the body and magnesium salts are no exception to this rule. Though they can consistently 'block' the secretion of stomach acids, thus providing quick relief, they also end up blocking the absorption of nutrients and often hinder the process of digestion, creating other more complex problems.

As a matter of fact, the stomach acid (hydrochloric acid) is an essential chemical that the body prepares itself for breaking down the proteins into amino acids that are used by the body. Any deviation from this normal practice is liable to harm the very process of nourishment that is so very vital for sustenance. Besides, the anti-acidic property of magnesium for heartburn can merely suppress the condition but can never address the basic cause of the digestive problem. At best (or rather worse) it helps continuing the cycle of heartburn, acid reflux and more drugs. Instead, a holistic approach to the problem by way of changing the lifestyle, selecting the food that does not prompt acidity and leading a regulated life brings about a better solution.

Nevertheless, magnesium compounds are available in several formulations including magnesium carbonate, magnesium trisilicate and magnesium hydroxide, i.e. the 'milk of magnesia' all of which can reduce the gas in the stomach, alkalize and neutralize the acids, restrict their over production and even provide a barrier, controlling the backflow (reflux) of acidic stomach contents to the esophagus. But alas, one of the major side effects of all magnesium for heartburn is diarrhea.

As mentioned above, magnesium for heartburn is never a permanent treat - at best it can provide temporary relief. For a permanent treat, you have to turn to holistic remedies. Conventional medicines can treat only the symptoms of the disease and tends to ignore its root causes (which can be many and complicated), and this is why, even after the symptoms are gone with treatment, they often return after a while. But holistic remedies on the other hand reach out to the root causes of the disease and tries to solve the problem.

This is why you must not completely depend on magnesium for heartburn and instead turn to holistic remedies.
