Kirkland Signature Acid Controller 20mg., 250 Tablets
Who gets heartburn?
More than 60 million Americans experience heartburn at least once a month. Some studies suggest that more than 15 million Americans experience heartburn symptoms each day. Being pregnant or overweight can make you more likely to have heartburn.
Physicians Recommend Famotidine
Famotidine is the #1 recommended H2 blocker active ingredient for the over-the-counter (OTC) acid reducer category in the US. H2 blockers "like Famotidine" work by decreasing the amount of acid made in the stomach.
Don’t wait until you feel the burn. Heartburn relief begins with prevention. Take Acid Controller 10-60 minutes before eating or drinking the food and beverages that may cause indigestion. Block stomach acid production before it starts.
Fact: Chronic, Untreated Heartburn is Uncomfortable…and Dangerous
A study that was published in the New England Journal of Medicine found that chronic, untreated heartburn markedly increased the risk of esophageal cancer. In patients with longstanding, severe unresolved heartburn (e.g. frequent symptoms 20 years duration), the risk of developing esophageal cancer was 43.5 times as great as for those without chronic heartburn.
Fact: Eating Before Going to Bed Can Trigger Heartburn
You will probably experience the unpleasant side effects of nighttime frequent heartburn if you find yourself eating late at night. According to a survey by the American Gastroenterological Association (AGA), three- quarters of the respondents reported that nighttime heartburn either keeps them from falling asleep or wakes them up during sleep.
Fact: Holidays Can Be Heartburn-Free
When asked to name their worst "heartburn days of the year," those with frequent heartburn most often cited Thanksgiving (43%), followed by Christmas/Hanukkah (35%), and July 4th and New Year's Eve (both tied at 14%). When celebrating, take Acid Controller before eating to block stomach acid production before heartburn strikes.
