Most of us at one point or the other have experienced a very discomforting and sometimes painful burning sensation in the stomach. This burning sensation occurs when the natural functioning of the LES – lower esophageal sphincter is hampered that allows the juices that form during the digestive process to flow back into it from the stomach which ideally should be swiftly moving through the LES into the stomach.
This disturbed digestive process causes excess acid in the stomach leading to heartburn and stomach burning. While there are many over-the-counter drugs to cure this, Gas-O-Fast offers 100% Ayurvedic and side effect free that contain digestive enzymes and remove acidity from the root, giving you instant relief from heartburn. Also, you can try these effective natural remedies for heartburn relief.
