Nutrient Composition and Nutrient-Nutrient Interaction in the Prescribed Diet that Eliminates Heart Burn Symptoms

Tecklah Usai, Cuthbert Zvidzai, Trust Mushawarima

A well planned and selected diet can reduce or eliminate symptoms of heart burn and esophageal erosions. This study analysed nutrient content of a strict diet on relieving gastro esophageal symptoms caused by excessive production of gastric acid. The food tests were carried out to establish the amounts of nutrients (vitamins, mineral elements, proteins, fats and carbohydrates) which were available in the breakfast, lunch and supper. This study established that the nutrients in the diet were provided in adequate amounts. The nutrient-nutrient interaction was also recognised.
