If You Have Heartburn, Drink…

Water or Tea

There’s an old wives' tale that says to drink milk to avoid heartburn, especially middle-of-the-night heartburn. But that daily dose of milk could end up aggravating your heartburn. Dairy can trigger certain stomach acids that cause heartburn, and most experts agree that eating or drinking anything too close to bedtime will only add to heartburn woes. It’s best to avoid caffeine, carbonated soft drinks, and alcohol to prevent heartburn, and instead drink water or tea to ease the pain. Some say that herbal teas, like slippery elm, licorice root, or chamomile tea, can protect your esophagus and stomach lining and soothe away heartburn.
