Everybody enjoys eating spicy food. When the mouth watering dishes are gulped down in unlimited quantity, it leads to acid reflux which is called acidity.
It is a condition where the person experiences a burning sensation in the chest. The gastric glands in the stomach produce acid which is required for digestion. During acidity the same acid flows back up into the food pipe.
Acidity is also called acid reflux which is a condition characterized by heartburn that is felt around the lower chest area. Gastroesophageal reflux disease (GERD) occurs when stomach acid frequently flows back into the tube connecting the mouth and stomach (esophagus).
