Actually,it’s because you don’t have enough acid.Acid digests food.When you don’t produce enough acid your stomach makes it’s own,thats what causes heart burn/
acid reflux". Then thats when it can burn your esophagus.Try some organic apple cider vinegar when this happens.Works great for me.
I haven’t tried ZMA yet. So that’s not an issue, but it’s good to know I don’t have to worry about taking an antacid when I need one.
When I bulk, I ocassionally have the same problem with acid. Usually when I eat things like tomato sauce and certain meats.
Another thing to think about. All multi vitamin/mineral supplements have calcium. So if calcium decreased nutrient absorption, then that would mean a lot of people that are trying to bulk or even get the most out of their food, wouldn’t want to take a multi vitamin/mineral supplement. That just doesn’t make sense.
Also, having an excess amount of acid is an abnormal condition that happens in your stomach. When you neutralize the out of control acid, your simply bringing it back down to around where it should be. If anything, I see that as being beneficial for absorption. However, if this is happening to you all the time (every day). I would definetly see a doctor. If you let it go and only take Tums over and over and over, eventually you will end up with esophagus damage or cancer from the acid.
