Factors which can lead to indigestion and heartburn
Smoking - the chemicals in tobacco can increase the amount of acid produced by the stomach and also prevent the oesophageal sphincter from working properly.
Being overweight - the extra pressure on the stomach can cause indigestion. If this pressure pushes acidic stomach contents back up the oesophagus, heartburn can occur.
Diet - what you eat and the way you eat has an effect on your digestive system. Over-indulgence in certain foods including spicy or greasy foods can increase the amount of acid your stomach produces.
Chocolate and coffee - can also hamper the function of the oesophageal sphincter.
Alcohol consumption - alcohol can increase the amount of acid your stomach produces.
Stress - stress or anxiety can disturb your nervous system and impact upon stomach contractions during digestion.
Pregnancy - heartburn and indigestion may be caused due to the pressure of the baby on the stomach. Hormonal changes may cause a relaxation of the oesophageal sphincter and iron tablets taken during pregnancy may also cause indigestion.
