Chances are excellent that you've probably said something
like this many times in the past:
"Mexican food tonight? Yikes-better have the Tums ready!"
Commercials for antacids joke about people getting
indigestion (remember the one with the guy groaning, "I
can't believe I ate the whooole thing"?) and then show
the smiles and instant relief from the antacid.
But in reality taking antacids is the worst thing you can
Antacids typically contain one or more of these ingredients:
- Calcium carbonate (the same kind found in calcium
- Aluminum salts
- Magnesium salts (think Milk of Magnesia)
- Sodium bicarbonate (baking soda)
They all neutralize your stomach acid, and that is problem
number 1. It might feel nice in the moment, but it's very,
Because your stomach needs acid to break down proteins
(and to do other things which I'll talk about below). So
if you take away the acid, you take away your body's
ability to digest your food.
And that's NEVER good.
The physical cost of antacids
The effects of this come out in different ways depending
on your antacid of choice:
Aluminum salts dissolve slowly in your stomach and cause
Magnesium salts act quicker and lead to diarrhea.
Bicarbonate of soda releases carbon dioxide gas and causes
burping and belching.
Calcium carbonate antacids (like Tums or Rolaids) are the
type that is most touted by the pharmaceutical companies.
After all, you get some much-needed calcium with your
antacid. That's great, right?
First of all, when you stop your digestion with antacids,
your body can't effectively absorb nutrients anyway. So
don't think your bones are staying strong and osteoporosis-
free from Tums. They are not.
Calcium carbonate acts quickly like magnesium salts, but
stays around and neutralizes stomach acid for a long period
of time. So that means it can cause either constipation OR
What makes this scenario even worse is that calcium
carbonate antacids like Tums and Rolaids are like candy--
chewable and fruit or mint-flavored. So people tend to
overuse them, compounding the damage they're causing.
But wait-there's more going on here:
Now, in addition to bringing your digestion to a
screeching halt and hampering your body's ability to absorb
nutrients, antacids cause even more harm.
When they neutralize your stomach acid, they raise the pH
in your stomach from about 2 (very acidic) to between 3 and
4. That might not seem like a big change, but it wipes out
99% of your stomach acid.
This is bad because, in addition to breaking down food,
your stomach acid also acts as a natural protective barrier
for your body. Every day you take in foods and
environmental toxins that have the potential to make you
very ill or even kill you.
But they don't, because stomach acid usually destroys
these dangerous invaders...but if the stomach acid isn't
there, the harmful microorganisms have the "run of the
house." And that can mean disaster.
Also, when you so drastically change your stomach's pH,
you also completely upset the natural balance of flora in
In other words, antacids are murder--literally--on the
beneficial probiotic bacteria in your gut.
Without a healthy population of beneficial bacteria in
your gut, you're susceptible to digestive problems,
infections of all kinds, food allergies and leaky gut
syndrome. (This is where your intestinal wall becomes
porous and toxins can seep out all over your body.)
What about PPIs and H2 Blockers?
Proton pump inhibitors (PPIs) and H2 Blockers are no better.
Instead of neutralizing your stomach acid, they stop your
body from being able to produce or secrete it.
But you're still left with the same problems as with
antacids because your stomach acid is not there doing its
And to boot, long-term use of PPIs causes up to a 59%
increased risk of hip fracture. This is because PPIs
reduce the ability of your bones to absorb calcium.
The perfect solution
Instead of taking antacids and playing Russian roulette
with your health, doesn't it make sense to eliminate the
need for antacids to begin with? And while you're at it,
help counteract the harm that's been done if you've been a
Tums-popper for a long time?
