Acid reflux is a common digestive condition, with over 60 million Americans navigating the symptoms monthly. And if you’re familiar with the heartburn, nausea, burping, and stomach pains, you’re likely no stranger to antacids either. Lifestyle and dietary changes are often sensibly advised, but there’s another option worth exploring too — vitamins. Here’s what to know about managing acid reflux symptoms with key vitamins.
The Nutrient/Acid Reflux Relationship
Multiple studies have linked specific nutrients to symptom management for acid reflux.
- B vitamins. Increased intake of several B vitamins may help reduce the risk of reflux esophagitis, an inflammatory condition in the esophagus that stems from acid reflux. Another study showed greater efficacy from a B vitamin supplement than an over-the-counter acid reflux treatment.
- Vitamins A, C, and D. Research on antioxidant supplementation used for patients with gastric ulcers and cancers shows that this sort of therapy may also benefit people with acid reflux.
The best case scenario is a nutritious, varied diet that ensures you get all of the vitamins and minerals you need. But nutritional gaps are a reality for just about everyone, and streamlining vitamin intake can be key if you’re struggling with reflux. That’s where IV drips come in. Unlike traditional supplements that must navigate the digestive system, a vitamin-rich IV is rapidly and completely absorbed for far greater efficacy.
