Drugs like these have been known to cause your body to produce more of a hormone called gastrin, which is the substance that tells your body to produce more acid. This in the long run can actually make your acid reflux worse, especially when you stop taking the drug.
The side effects of these drugs can also increase and vary greatly when combined with other prescription drugs. I don’t know about you, but taking an all natural remedy as opposed to a harmful prescription drug makes a lot more sense to me.
Antacids aren’t any better. They simply mask the real problem of your acid reflux or heart burn. Not only that, but most antacids are known to contain large amounts of minerals such as sodium, aluminum, calcium, and magnesium. Ingesting excessive amounts of mineral imbalances can be extremely harmful and even lead to hypertension and Alzheimer’s disease.
So as you can see, there are plenty of reasons why you should look for a natural alternative to prescription drugs.
