Heartburn or GERD can Kill

Heartburn is a common annoyance. The busy lifestyle, quick meals, fatty or spicy foods all contribute to the occasional need of a chewable pain reliever. The acceptance of heartburn as an inconvenient, but natural, part of the daily grind can blind you to the warning that a severe heartburn symptom can bring.

Heartburn as a Disorder

Heartburn can be a symptom as well as a disorder. Simple heartburn or GERD can be controlled and dealt with. However, heartburn can signal the presence of a much more serious problem. If it’s heartburn, you will have a burning sensation in the chest usually after eating. There may be a spread of the burning to the throat, sometimes accompanied by a bad taste, difficulty in swallowing, belching, coughing, hoarseness and/or wheezing.

It can become worse by lying down or bending over or by eating. Relief can come from an antacid. While the more severe heartburn symptoms may be mistaken for a heart attack, simple heartburn is usually not made worse by exercise. If there is any concern that the pain may signal a heart attack, get help quickly.

Antioxidants In Acai Berry

By Dana Hawkes

The acai berry diet has seen many media mentions as of late. Many people have heard of the acai berry and the acai berry diet from their favorite TV shows. While they may have heard about all of the possible health benefits of the acai berry diet, they have most likely heard of the antioxidant properties.

Antioxidants help to meet the free radicals in the body. Antioxidants, by doing so, can help to prevent certain kinds of heart disease and certain kinds of cancer. Antioxidants are extremely healthy for the body.

The acai berry is known for having antioxidants. While most people know that the berry is high in antioxidants, they fail to understand the range. The acai berry has the highest level of antioxidants of any food that we known. The acai berry is the most antioxidant rich food. No food comes near to the antioxidant properties of the acai berry.

The antioxidants in the acai berry can be had through different acai berry diet products. Acai berry juice features all of the antioxidants of the acai berry. It may often be paired with juices of other fruits that have antioxidants. Acai berry diet supplements and pills also feature antioxidants. These pills may be in the form of multivitamins, or 100% acai pills. Both pills will feature high amounts of antioxidants.

The amount of antioxidants in each acai berry diet product will change, depending on the manufacturer. The best way to get the most antioxidants in your diet is to pair the acai berry diet with other foods. Eating various fruits (such as strawberries and blueberries) and drinking green tea will give you more antioxidants. These antioxidants are helpful, no matter the food or concentration that they come from.
