7. Chamomile Tea
A few cups of chamomile tea can help reduce the symptoms of a sour stomach.
Its anti-inflammatory nature helps the stomach muscles relax, which can reduce the pain and improve the digestion process. It also lowers gastric acidity.
- Put 1 to 2 teaspoons of dried chamomile flowers in a cup and pour boiling water over it. Cover and allow it to steep for 5 minutes. Strain, add a little honey and drink it.
- Alternatively, if you are using chamomile tea bags, pour water over the bag, cover it and allow it to steep for 5 minutes. Remove the tea bag, add a little honey and drink the tea.
8. Activated Charcoal
If you want quick relief from sour stomach symptoms, then try activated charcoal.
Activated charcoal can soak up the harmful acids and gases that accumulate in your gut. This in turn provides relief from indigestion, gas and a bloated stomach.
- One hour before eating your meal, take 1 capsule of activated charcoal with a full glass of water. After finishing the meal, drink another glass of water.
- Another option is to mix ½ teaspoon of activated charcoal powder in a glass of water and have it before eating your meal.
