Orange Juice

Well - orange juice is definitely a no no with acid reflux. Does anyone think or have tried with success vitamin C? I was just wondering because cold and flu season is upon us and I used to drink OJ all the time before this...

Thanks!

Re: Orange Juice

HI an in-law of mine has to peel her green peppers before she uses them but I don't know if she has acid reflux. Green peppers are said to have vitamin C in them. Has anyone here tried peeling a green pepper to use it with success?

Additionally, most brands of orange juice have a lot of added sugar (sugar has a highly acidic affect on the body), so you could try raw oranges as opposed to orange juice.

However, I highly recommend fresh, raw, green kale. It is a natural anti-acid. I added it to my diet a couple of weeks ago and have never been more regular in my life.
I would have thought that a raw orange was pretty acidic and was supposed to stay away from them all together in any form? I will have to try the kale. Never have before. Thanks!

Re: Orange Juice

Thanks for the replies everyone. I WAS going to start a new thread but hopefully others will read this. I had already purchased the vitamin c pills like a dummy before I came on here and decided to take them for the last 2 days now and am in total misery. I won't take anymore. It may be just a fluke, but I'm pretty sure this is what is causing my pain because I am currently dieting and eating EXTREMELY healthy foods and know what to avoid with my acid reflux. I will see in a couple of days I guess and see if I feel better....
