Supplements To Eliminate Acid Reflux
If this is your first time on this site, I first recommend you read my 5 Amazing Supplements for Acid Reflux article. In it, I explain the most common, though seldom know root causes of reflux. Additionally, I explain in detail the purpose and benefits of each of the below supplements as it relates to getting rid of your acid reflux for good.
Starting these supplements enabled me to discontinue the prescription acid reflux medications and antacids immediately. In fact, taking them would have been counterproductive. Once my body reached normal digestive efficiency and natural acidity, with no reflux symptoms, I was additionally able to discontinue use of the supplements. In all, I took the supplements for 8 weeks and was able to eliminate my reflux for good!

Digestive Enzymes – Taken with every meal to support digestion and alleviate indigestion. These enzymes which help the body breakdown proteins, fats, milk sugars, fiber and carbohydrates.
HCl – Taken with every meal to encourage stomach acid and pepsin production. Pepsin is one of the primary digestive enzymes that helps you break down proteins into smaller components. Dose of HCl should vary with meal complexity as explained in the 5 Amazing Supplements for Acid Reflux article and my free personal journal and acid reflux transition guide. Note that Hydrochloric Acid is naturally produced by your stomach so this supplement is used to restore normal levels of acidity. Those with ulcers or inflammatory issue should avoid increasing stomach acidity.
ACV – Apple Cider Vinegar is taken with every meal as it help kill pathogens, including bad bacteria that multiply in low acid conditions. Furthermore, it is rich in enzymes and pre-biotics which promote return of beneficial bacteria in your stomach. You have probably seen ACV recommended for weight loss, reflux, skin and many other things. Did you know, you should avoid taking in liquid form, even if diluted or from a straw as it is corrosive to teeth and already sensitive soft tissues? Here, I recommend in pill form which can safely dissolve in your stomach which is designed to handle high acidity. Those with ulcers or inflammatory issue should avoid increasing stomach acidity.

As mentioned above, I first recommend you read my 5 Amazing Supplements for Acid Reflux article. In it, I explain the most common side effects of prolonged acid reflux medication use. Additionally, I discuss these side effects at length in my YouTube video.
I took Proton Pump Inhibitors (prilosec, nexium, omeprazole, etc…) for 15 years and as a result developed several neurological, neuromuscular issues (memory issues, brain fog, anxiety, fatigue, tingling, full list in the article…). These are caused by Vitamin B12, Calcium, and Magnesium deficiencies. These are in turn are due to inability to properly break foods down so they can be absorbed.
Thankfully most all have been reversed by discontinuing the medication and my recovery accelerated, using the below vitamins:
B12 – Vitamin B12 helps support energy metabolism, nervous system health, and helps convert food to energy
Magnesium – Magnesium is important for many systems in the body, especially the muscles and nerves:
