What Summer Delights Trigger Indigestion?

During the summertime many people enjoy barbecues, food from county fairs, and sodas.  All of these foods upset your digestive tract and trigger indigestion. Some foods can be carcinogenic. Taking antacids to relieve stomach upset may seem like a quick fix, but it can have long-term effects on your health.

Common Foods that Trigger Digestion Upset

Fried Foods

Fried foods like french fries, fried chicken, onion rings, and deep-fried snacks are popular choices. However, they can be high in fat, greasy, and heavy, which can cause digestive issues that trigger indigestion and discomfort. It is best to avoid cooking in oil as can turn into trans fats, leading to weight gain and other health problems.

Also fried foods will take longer to digest. Their high fat content can contribute to the relaxation of the lower esophageal sphincter (LES), allowing stomach acid to flow back into the esophagus and trigger heartburn symptoms.

Spicy Foods

Many people love spicy dishes, such as hot peppers, salsa, or spicy barbecue sauces. Unfortunately, these foods can trigger heartburn or worsen symptoms for those already prone to acid reflux or gastrointestinal issues.

Citrus Fruits

Although refreshing, citrus fruits like oranges, lemons, grapefruits, and tomatoes can be acidic and irritate the digestive system, leading to heartburn or discomfort for some individuals.

Barbecue and Grilled Foods

Grilled meats and barbecued are favorite summer dishes.  However, it’s important to avoid overcooking or burning your meats and veggies on the grill as burnt food is carcinogenic  and can initially cause heartburn or indigestion, especially when consumed in large quantities. It’s best to cook and grill your food slowly.

Carbonated Beverages

I know people love soda, carbonated water, and fizzy drinks. These drinks are usually full of sugar, artificial dyes and can introduce excess air into the digestive system, causing bloating, belching, and discomfort. Additionally, sodas interfere with calcium absorption and weaken bones.

Ice Cream and Frozen Treats

Indulging in ice cream or frozen treats is a beloved summer activity. However these treats often contain high amounts of fat, sugar, and dairy, which may trigger digestive issues like heartburn, bloating, or lactose intolerance symptoms in some individuals.

Ideas to Consider

It’s important to think twice about consuming these unhealthy foods as they can harm your stomach initially and have long-term effects on your health. Overeating can also make you uncomfortable, so it’s best to practice moderation. Healthy fats are acceptable, but don’t overindulge. Spices can be healthy too, but use them in moderation. Remember to eat slowly and pay attention to your own food sensitivities. Upset stomachs on hot days can be particularly unpleasant.

Antiacids are Not the Solution

Instead of relying on antacids, which can make it harder for your stomach to digest food, consider using probiotics. For on-the-go probiotics that work immediately, I recommend products like Root Beer Belly, Pre+Probiotics or Apple Cider Vinegar Gummies. Remember, I always give my customers wholesale pricing.

Root Beer Belly is a root beer flavored microencapsulated probiotic sprinkle providing you with 5 of the most advantageous probiotic strains on the market. Microencapsulation makes is more likely that a probiotic will survive stomach acidity allowing it to cultivate and provide you with several benefits starting with a healthy digestive and immune system.
