Gastroesophageal reflux disease (GERD) is a common disorder of the upper gastrointestinal tract which is typically characterized by common symptoms that include heartburn, empty belching, and regression of gastric contents. Often the ailments are also known as burning behind the breastbone, hyperacidity, acid reflux, or pain in the upper abdomen. This disease is much more represented in Europe and USA than in Asiatic countries.
How to fight this troublesome condition?
Chlorella and Young Barley Grass are multi-functional plant food. Their beneficial actions are less and less questioned. Among the supporters of Green Food, there are good experiences in its use in gastro-esophageal reflux disease. In medical language, it is gastroesophageal reflux disease (GERD), and colloquially - heartburn.
It has long been believed that the cause of esophageal reflux is the excessive secretion of gastric acid. Today, specialists agree that the cause of this disease is a disorder in the form of regurgitation of the lower esophageal sphincter. This is the section of the digestive tract at the end of the esophagus before entering the stomach. When the muscles of the esophagus weaken at this point, they do not sufficiently close the esophagus from the acidic contents of the stomach. Hydrochloric acid, one of the components of gastric juice, is responsible for the acidity of the stomach contents.
The good influence of Green Food, in this case, is comprehensive. Green Food has an alkaline effect. It acts as a natural acid neutralizer, possibly as a weak base. It reduces or even suppresses gastric acidity, reducing or suppressing the risk of damage to the esophagus - not only its mucosa but also the muscles of the lower esophageal sphincter. This reduces the risk of regurgitation of the lower esophageal sphincter.
Green Food has a good ratio of carbohydrate - fat - protein, with a total of 100g of Barley and Chlorella, in favor of protein. It is the predominance of protein that improves the condition of the weakened lower esophageal sphincter and makes its function, i.e. the ability to close, back to normal. It does not allow gastric juice to enter the esophagus. Protein has the ability to stimulate the hormone - gastrin. In turn, gastrin stimulates the lower esophageal sphincter to close. In this way, the protein, through gastrin, improves and regulates the activity of the lower esophageal sphincter.
Protein also stimulates the secretion of gastric juice, which means also hydrochloric acid. And plant protein to a fundamentally lesser extent than animal protein. This explains why esophageal disease does not worsen when eating Green Food.
The beneficial effects of Green Food for gastroesophageal reflux disease are complex, with various substances contained in Barley and Chlorella contributing to this.
Green Barley has a relatively high proportion of total sugar per 100 g dry weight. Sugars can weaken, possibly worsen, the function of the lower esophageal sphincter and thus worsen the symptoms of reflux esophageal disease. However, this phenomenon was not observed when consuming Green Barley. This can be explained by the fact that the described effect of sugars concerns only refined sugar, consumed additionally in extreme excess. Meanwhile, Green Barley does not contain refined sugar.
Green Food can also help with gastroesophageal reflux disease due to the content of substances with anti-inflammatory properties. In the course of GERD, the esophageal mucosa is often inflamed. The antioxidant effect of Green Food is also beneficial. Esophageal reflux is a disease that develops as a result of overeating, poor lifestyle, and obesity.
As described above, Chlorella and Young Barley can help, but at the same time but also it is very crucial to pay more attention to your lifestyle and fitness.
