Hyperacidity can cause gas, bloating, acid-reflux and stomach pain. While you may be tempted to reach for over-the-counter cures, there are foods that can assist to naturally ease the discomfort caused by hyperacidity.

1. Bananas

Ripe bananas increase the production of mucus in the gut, which prevents excessive acid formation and fights the effects of excess acid production.

2. Milk

Calcium is one of the main ingredients in over-the-counter antacids, and drinking a glass of cold milk can provide you instant relief by absorbing the excess acid produced.

3. Ginger

Ginger destroys the bacteria that causes acidity, helping decrease inflammation, reducing nausea and calming the stomach. Eat it raw or steeped in hot water for best results.

4. Garlic

Garlic is a natural remedy for indigestion; raw garlic kills the microorganisms that cause gastroenteritis but even cooked garlic consumed regularly eases acidity by aiding digestion.
