Heartburn and indigestion can keep you up through the night and is not only painful but also frustrating – a good night’s sleep is so critical for your health, but this pain is preventing you from sleeping well. In this article we outline some simple tips to prevent heartburn and indigestion at night.

Since stomach acid can sit in your stomach for a longer period when you are lying flat throughout the night this can more easily cause heartburn. These symptoms can be extremely painful, so it is crucial to try to minimise them as much as possible by some straightforward lifestyle adjustments. These are our four best pain-relieving tips:

  1. Leave time between eating and sleeping
    It is important to give your digestive system a rest and a chance to empty before going to sleep. We recommend eating your final meal of the day three to four hours before going to sleep to allow your digestive system optimum time to properly digest your food

  2. Stress and anxiety
    Stress and anxiety is a major contributor to heartburn. Anxiety can decrease the pressure on your lower oesophageal sphincter, the muscular band at the bottom of the oesophagus which controls food and liquid moving into the stomach. If the pressure of this band is abnormally low, it means stomach acid can flow up from the stomach causing heartburn. Try to do more activities that help reduce stress and anxiety. Fifteen minutes each day of yoga or meditation can have a significant impact on both your gut and mental health.

  3. Wear the right clothes to bed
    Don’t choose anything too restrictive and tight around your waist as it can put pressure on your stomach which may lead to indigestion and heartburn..

  4. Try REZCUE
    Unlike common products on the market which just offer short-term relief, REZCUE both soothes and heals the gut lining through the combined benefits of our unique blend of zinc carnosine and L-glutamine, both of which have been scientifically shown to be extremely beneficial for the GI tract meaning REZCUE can help to prevent acid reflux and heartburn.
