As a natural process stomach secretes the acid that is essential to digest food and requires no remedy. This produced acid helps to break down the food during the digestion process. When there is an excess production of this acid by gastric glands of stomach, the resulting condition is termed as acidity. Acidity is further responsible for the symptoms like heartburn, dyspepsia (indigestion) and ulcer formation. Acidity also has a higher incidence in nervous and emotional individuals. It usually occurs after meals and by excess abdominal pressure such as straining or lifting weight. Dyspepsia refers to the aching or burning pain in upper abdomen that is associated with the feeling of nausea or indigestion.
