Experiencing painful heartburn and gas?

It’s not uncommon. Many everyday activities can trigger heartburn and gas: from overeating to eating too fast, to what you’re eating (think spicy or fatty foods). Other behaviors, like stress, can lead to heartburn and gas symptoms.

Learn more about the causes of heartburn and gas, along with what you can do to prevent and manage them. And for fast relief, the #1 doctor-recommended liquid antacid brand Mylanta has a range of products to help soothe both heartburn and gas and bring relief.

Causes of Heartburn

Stomach acid is necessary for normal digestion, but when it moves from the stomach up the esophagus, that’s when you feel the burn we call heartburn. Lots of things can cause it. The good news is, there are lots of good treatments, too.

Heartburn Prevention

So many of the things we encounter every day can trigger heartburn. Eating too much, eating too quickly, eating fatty foods, and being overweight are just a few of the causes of heartburn.

Heartburn Relief

When heartburn prevention tips don’t work, many seek heartburn relief from medications like Mylanta. Occasionally, more severe symptoms may require a doctor’s care.

What Is Breakthrough Heartburn?

This is of special interest for heartburn sufferers who are taking an acid-reducing medication as part of their heartburn prevention treatment. The term “breakthrough heartburn” refers to heartburn symptoms that can occur even while taking a preventative heartburn treatment.
