Finding Relief

It doesn’t only happen after Thanksgiving dinner. Your heartburn can occur throughout the year, and be caused by culprits ranging from certain foods to tight clothing, and even the way you sit or recline. For simple ways to feel better now, read on for these tips for fast heartburn relief.

How to Get Fast Heartburn Relief

Belt Icon

Loosen your belt

Sometimes tight clothing compresses your stomach, which can heighten your heartburn symptoms. After you take an antacid (like TUMS®), loosen your belt to take some of the pressure off.

Chewing Gum Icon

Chew gum

Not only is it fun, but chewing gum can help extinguish heartburn. It stimulates saliva flow, which lowers acid levels in the mouth and esophagus.

Standing Icon

Get up, stand up

If you're lying down, sit or stand up. When you lay flat, your esophagus and stomach are on an even plane. This makes it easy for stomach acids to flow into your esophagus, which can cause heartburn. And sitting at a 45° angle could compress your stomach and make symptoms worse.

TUMS in Hand

Reach for TUMS®

TUMS® goes to work in seconds to start neutralizing gastric acid in the esophagus, where the pain of heartburn starts.* It keeps working as it dissolves, going to work fast to relieve the pain of heartburn.

 

*Onset of acid neutralization does not imply onset of symptom relief.
