Here's an easy way to prevent acid reflux:
Pop a stick of gum into your mouth after a meal. According to Kings College London researchers, chewing gum can reduce heartburn related symptoms by boosting production of saliva, which is alkaline and helps neutralize stomach acid.
More saliva also means more swallowing which stimulates the muscle contractions that help digest food, researchers say. Stick to sugarless gum, they advise, and if you're not the gum chewing type, a sugar free hard candy or lozenge may have a similar effect.
