Acidity Control

The most common problems associated with acidity are heartburn and acid reflux. Heartburn is that uncomfortable burning sensation in the center of the chest, especially after eating a large meal. Acid reflux occurs when you taste regurgitated food or a sour, bitter liquid in the back of your mouth or throat. Stomach acidity can be very unpleasant and occur at the most inconvenient times, but, in general, acidity can be treated quickly and simply with drugs or supplements.

Notes
There appears to be a reliable and fairly notable decrease in nausea symptoms with 1-3g of ginger associated with pregnancy and seasickness (not the maximum amount consensus for post-operative nausea).
There appears to be a rise in serum gastrin levels following ingestion of melatonin in persons with stomach ulceration, this increase is assumed to be associated with the ulcer healing effects of melatonin.
