Acid reflux occurs when the valve that connects the stomach to the esophagus, or food pipe, is weakened. When this happens, stomach acid flows back into the food pipe. Because stomach acid is an irritant, the lining of the food pipe also becomes inflamed, and this can cause discomfort. Acid reflux or heartburn is one of the most common symptoms of a more chronic, yet common, disease of the digestive system called gastroesophageal reflux disease (GERD). This article explains the drinks that people who experience acid reflux should not consume, as well as beverages that can serve as a replacement.
