Do You Know: You can chew a piece of clove after a meal to lessen the discomfort caused by acidity.

Clove has long been used to treat acidity and prevent flatulence, and is beneficial for heartburn, stomach acidity and indigestion. Clove has alkaline and carminative properties which help to ward off the effects of excess acid produced in the stomach and gastrointestinal tract.

A Times of India article suggests the following: “Whenever you experience heartburn and other acid reflux symptoms, chew 3-5 cloves until the juice is released into your digestive tract.”
