Will ginger help heartburn / acid reflux / GERD?

The following excerpt is from one of my customer’s review –

My favourite is of course is the crystallised ginger. This has twofold benefits for me . Firstly I use ginger as a health product as an effective treatment for a medical condition instead of using pharmaceuticals. Secondly, it is delicious as a treat! How amazing is that!! Ginger is a magical natural medicinal food and I can’t say enough about it but I will stop here, only to say that Áine in Blasta Delights has come as close as possible to produce a ginger product that is both unadulterated and potent.

The amount of information that I have gathered when doing these sort of researches is very broad. At the end of my blog I will have a series of links that will take you to the sources that I used. If you are having issues with viewing them please let me know. Some are only access through having a college email so I can forward you by email any further information that you’d like to read.

Acid reflux can be caused by food that is acidic or high in fat – like citrus fruits, tomatoes, onions, chocolate, coffee, cheese, and peppermint. Spicy foods or large meals can also be the root of distress.

Poor digestion from the lack of stomach acid can create gas bubbles that rise into your esophagus and throat, carrying stomach acid with it which creates heartburn.


Carminative Effect

Ginger as an important dietary agent which possesses carminative effect, decreases pressure on lower esophageal sphincter, reduces intestinal cramping, and prevents dyspepsia (indigestion), flatulence, and bloating.

Carminatives are food substances, which, when ingested, produce a sensation of intestinal warmth and are said to relieve the symptoms of postprandial (period after dinner or lunch) bloating by producing eructation and flatulence. Other foods that have carminative effects are cumin, fennel, cardamom, coriander, star anise, ginger, and peppermint.

Phenols are a compound in ginger.
Phenols can also be found in dark berries, cacao powder, herbs & spices like cloves, peppermint, anise, oregano, sage, rosemary and thyme. Nuts, flaxseeds, vegetables like artichokes, red onions, spinach, olives, and coffee and tea.

Its phenolic compounds are said to relieve gastrointestinal irritation and lessen gastric contractions. This means ginger can reduce the likelihood of acid flowing from your stomach back into your esophagus.
