How to get rid of Chronic Acid Reflux?

Updated: May 7

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 the USA than in Asian countries.

How to fight this troublesome condition?


Chlorella and Young Barley Grass are multi-functional plant foods. Their beneficial actions are less and less questioned. Among the supporters of Green Food, there are good experiences in its use in gastroesophageal reflux disease. In medical language, it is gastroesophageal reflux disease (GERD), and colloquially - heartburn.

It has long been believed that the cause of oesophagal 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 oesophagal sphincter. This is the section of the digestive tract at the end of the oesophagus before entering the stomach. When the muscles of the oesophagus weaken at this point, they do not sufficiently close the oesophagus 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 oesophagus - not only its mucosa but also the muscles of the lower oesophagal sphincter. This reduces the risk of regurgitation of the lower oesophagal sphincter.


Green Food can also help with gastroesophageal reflux disease due to the content of substances with anti-inflammatory properties.

Green Food has a good carbohydrate-fat-protein ratio, with a total of 100g of Barley and Chlorella, in favour of protein. The predominance of protein improves the condition of the weakened lower oesophagal sphincter and makes its function, i.e., the ability to close, back to normal. It does not allow gastric juice to enter the oesophagus. Protein can stimulate the hormone - gastrin. In turn, gastrin stimulates the lower oesophagal sphincter to close. In this way, the protein, through gastrin, improves and regulates the activity of the lower oesophagal sphincter.

Protein also stimulates gastric juice secretion, which means hydrochloric acid. And plant protein to a fundamentally lesser extent than animal protein. This explains why oesophagal 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 oesophagal sphincter and thus worsen the symptoms of reflux oesophagal 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 oesophagal 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 also it is very crucial to pay more attention to your lifestyle and fitness.
