Home remedies for acidity

The stomach normally secretes acid that is essential in the digestive process. This acid helps in breaking down the food during digestion. When there is excess production of acid by the gastric glands of the stomach, it results in the condition known as acidity.

Basil Leaves

The soothing and carminative properties of basil leaves can give you instant relief from acidity. At the first sign of gas, eat a few basil leaves or boil 3-4 basil leaves in a cup of water and let it simmer for a few minutes. Sip on it frequently.


It works as a natural antacid and helps dispel stomach gas.
You can add cinnamon powder to your soup or salad.


Eat a ripe banana for some relief. You could also eat an overripe banana to beat an especially bad bout of acidity, as they tend to contain more potassium which makes it the perfect antidote.


Improves digestion and aids in better absorption and assimilation of essential nutrients. It also protects your stomach against ulcers by promoting mucus secretion and reducing the effect of the acid on your stomach.


After all three meals take a small piece of jaggery and keep it in your mouth and suck to no more acidity.

Apple cider vinegar

Take 1 to 2 teaspoons daily of apple cider vinegar. Its great mixed with honey in tea or instead of lemon in tea. Vinegar is an acid with a pH of around 5. Therefore it helps with heartburn by lowering the pH (making it more acidic) of the stomach contents to improve digestion and reduce the pressure build up we’re looking to avoid.
