Magnesium and Acid Reflux: A Hidden Link?

Millions of Americans suffer every day from acid reflux or heartburn. Is there a link between magnesium and troubling acid reflux?
Acid reflux occurs when the strong acids needed to help digest food in the stomach are allowed to backflow up into the esophagus. If the sphincter muscle located between the stomach and esophagus responsible for preventing reflux is weak, heartburn can become a chronic problem that leads to GERD (gastroesophageal reflux disease).
