Stop Heartburn Instantly:Neutralization of stomach acid





-an acid is a compound that produces hydrogen ions (H+(aq)) when dissolved in water-some acids are safe to eat (citric acid, acetic acid in vinegar), while others aren’t-many acids are corrosive and will react with metals-aqueous solutions of acids conduct electricity current, because of the ions present in the solution-In this reaction HCL (Hydrogen chloride) is the acid

-A base is a compound that forms hydroxide ions (OH-(aq)) when dissolved in water-common household examples include soap, baking soda, and antacids-although some bases are safe to consume/be in contact with, many bases are not -some people mistakenly think that acids are dangerous, and bases are not; truth is that both acids and bases can cause severe chemical burns-In this reaction the antacid consumed would be th base

-Gastric acid is a digestive fluid, formed in the stomach. It is composed of hydrochloric acid.The main job of stomach acid is to break down food into molecules your body can absorb.-However if your lower esophageal sphintcter relaxes or becomes weak stomach acid can flow backwards into the esophagus causing the burning sensation of heartburn.-To neutralize an acid a base needs to be added-Therefore a base needs to be ingested to even out PH levels in your esophagus to stop the heartburn.

Ways to neutralize stomach acid- Consume a glass of water mixed with sodium bicarbonate(baking soda)-Take antacids such as tums or rolaids.-Drink a full glass of milk.

Double Displacement Reaction (neutralization)Reaction with stomach acid and tums:CaCO3(s) + 2 HCl(aq) = H2O(l) + CO2(g) + CaCl2(aq)
