Greasy fried foods are common causes of indigestion

Indigestion Treatment

Rennie is a fast-acting, effective remedy for indigestion. When symptoms hit, Rennie quickly gets to work to relieve painful symptoms.

There are times when indigestion can’t be avoided, but Rennie’s antacid-based calcium carbonate and magnesium carbonate formula works quickly, neutralising excess stomach acid, turning it into water and other natural substances to help keep your stomach happy. Rennie acts directly on the cause of the problem, which is the acid in your stomach, and works physically rather than by entering the bloodstream.

Rennie can be taken day or night to relieve painful symptoms fast. Learn more about the full range of Rennie products.

What you can do to avoid indigestion?

Make sure you’re eating enough fibre. For healthy, steady digestion, you need a variety of different fibres, such as brown rice, whole meal bread, fruit, veg and grains.  But be careful not to go too far the other way – too much fibre can cause bloating and digestive issues.

Take time to chew your food properly; chunky food is harder for the stomach to break down and digest. Try to sit down when you’re eating.

Easier said than done, but you might find that taking a bit of time out, learning some breathing exercises or learning how to relax your mind will provide you with a lot of relief.

Fatty and/or processed foods are much harder to digest. Cutting back on greasy fried foods ease your stomach’s workload. Try to eat more lean meat and fish, drink skimmed milk and grill rather than fry food. Herbs are a good alternative to spices. Acidic drinks such as coffee can also make indigestion worse.

Large meals stretch your stomach and increase upward pressure where the oesophagus meets the stomach, which can lead to indigestion. Try eating six smaller meals instead of three larger ones. This can stop the stomach becoming too full, and prevent the production of excess stomach acid.
