Reducing Heartburn Pain

Reducing Heartburn Pain

Heartburn is very frustrating because one of the problems is it is hard to distinguish from actual heart pain. The thing about heartburn that you have to realize is there are certain things that make heartburn worse; acid, alcohol, caffeine, tobacco. All of those things will build up stomach acid, and as they do, it can make that heartburn worse. One of the things I believe that’s very important in dealing with heartburn is you also elevate the head of the bed. If you go to bed, make sure you actually have your head a little higher. Gravity will help you deal with it. That certainly will help with the symptoms.

Caffeine Content in Energy Drinks

Caffeine Content in Energy Drinks

Johns Hopkins doctors want warning labels on caffeinated energy drinks. The scientists who study energy drinks say the beverages should have these labels displaying the caffeine content and warnings about possible health risks from too much caffeine. Some of the energy drinks contain as much as 14 cans of Coke. A regular 12 oz can has 35 mg of caffeine and a cup of coffee has between 80 and 150 mg. Energy drinks contain up to 500 mg of caffeine.
