Hyperacidity is caused by excess acid in our stomach. Our stomach produces acid in order to facilitate digestion of our food. But when there is too much acid in the stomach, we call this Hyperacidity.
LINIMENTS, OILS & OINTMENTS
Topical products are often used because of the warming sensation these provide. But did you know that it only provides external relief and does nothing to neutralize the acids inside your stomach?
Studies have shown that continued use of topicals may damage your stomach lining and could worsen to ulcer.
COMMON TREATMENT MISTAKES
Drinking warm water may provide warming and soothing relief for hyperacidity but the truth is, water does not have an effect on hyperacidity. You need an antacid to neutralize the excess acids in the stomach. The continued use of warm water slowly damages your stomach, which can eventually lead to ulcer.
While avoiding triggers of hyperacidity should be a fundamental step – over-the-counter (OTC) solutions such as antacids are a common solution because they neutralize the acidity of the stomach quickly; increasing its pH level. Once the antacid does its job, relief may immediately be felt with less stomach pain. Kremil-S Tablet is one such example of an antacid. However, there are products like Kremil-S Advance that not only neutralizes acidity, but also reduces acid production in order to provide longer-lasting relief versus antacids only.
STOMACH PAIN & ULCER
Sometimes, hyperacidity is commonly mistaken for a simple stomach ache. Hence, it is very important to take note of how often you suffer stomach pain, and if you suffer from symptoms like bloating, burping, sour taste in the mouth. Because prolonged hyperacidity, if left untreated, may lead to ulcers or other complications.
