Drinks That May Trigger Heartburn

Preventing heartburn isn't just about food choices. Certain drinks can make heartburn more likely.

Caffeinated beverages boost acid in the stomach and alcoholic beverages can relax the lower esophageal sphincter, leading to heartburn. And sodas, regardless of caffeine, can bloat the stomach, which may lead to heartburn.
