    Question about heart burn

    Primal Fuel
    I have, since going primal, done my best to not eat before workouts because I have realized that it is what causes the heartburn I get towards the end of each intense session. It doesn't matter what the food is, it always leads to the burn of indigestion, and acid ending up in my mouth.

    However, Last night I did swim sprints and event though all I had was some coffee and bone broth (finished by 11am), I got heartburn at the end of my workout (which I did at 6pm).

    What is going on here? All I'd had since 11 was water, how is this causing reflex?

    Can anyone shed some light on this issue?

    Thanks in advance,
    Sam

    I'm guessing Hypochlorydria. I'd google and give a try to a Betaine HCl protocol. Worked wonders for me to correct identical symptoms.

    Thanks for that great suggestion Rich, I knew someone out there would have some personal experience. I think I'll try dosing myself wit apple cider vinegar before meals and maybe before workouts. If that doesn't work I'll give the Betaine a try.

    I'm not how much the ACV will do to help your stomach restore its endogenous acid production the way Betaine HCl does, but if it helps, you have a pretty good indicator that acid production is the problem. Chris Kresser did a great series on heartburn/GERD that I highly recommend.

    Are you taking a probiotic? Do.

    I'm not taking a pro-biotic supplement, but I eat a lot of greek yogurt and kombucha.
