"In most cases, acidity is a by-product of poor lifestyle. If you tend to sleep late, eat at odd hours, overeat in most of the meals -- you will surely become a slave to antacids," said nutritionist Juhi Kapoor

Food habits, overeating and erratic sleep schedules can all contribute to stomach-related issues like cramping, growling and even acidity. While working on lifestyle habits is a must, one can begin by incorporating some foods that can help.

Nutritionist and Ayurvedic practitioner Juhi Kapoor shared a few foods that she suggests one must have regularly to beat acidity.

“In most cases, acidity is a by-product of poor lifestyle. If you tend to sleep late, eat at odd hours, overeat in most of the meals — you will surely become a slave to antacids,” she said.

What is acidity?

Acidity occurs in the stomach when there is excessive secretion of acids in the gastric glands which can be triggered due to spicy foods, or a long gap between meals.

Three foods to beat acidity

Banana: Start your day with a banana. That “will solve half your acidity concerns”

Basil seeds: Drink one glass of water with 1-2 tsp of sabja seeds soaked in it. Remember, basil seeds are cooling in nature. “Avoid it during periods or if you have cold/cough,” said Kapoor.
