Many women experience heartburn for the first time during pregnancy — and though it's common and generally harmless, it can be quite uncomfortable. Heartburn is an irritation of the esophagus that is caused by stomach acid which creates a burning discomfort in the upper abdomen or below the breastbone. Symptoms of heartburn include a chronic cough, chest pains, and burning.
Heartburn in pregnancy may occur because of changing hormone levels, which can affect the muscles of the digestive tract and how different foods are tolerated. Pregnancy hormones can cause the lower esophageal sphincter (the muscular valve between the stomach and esophagus) to relax, allowing stomach acids to splash back up into the esophagus. In addition, the enlarged uterus can crowd the abdomen, pushing stomach acids upward. According to the NIH, more than 80% of all pregnant women report symptoms of severe heartburn, particularly during their second and third trimesters.
Recent scientific findings are suggesting that the most effective methods of naturally alleviating heartburn during pregnancy are through the use of dietary supplements.
But how do you know which nutrients are backed by scientific research and studies? Read on to see the list we have compiled regarding the top nutrients which help lower abdominal pain and cramping caused by severe heart during pregnancy...
