Drinking milk before sleep provides relief from acidity.


: It is not true. Often milk ends up causing acid stomach during sleep. To understand the whole situation, we have to realize that the problem roots from eating too much at dinner time. Eating a big meal at dinner causes excess stomach acid production. Drinking milk could be a quick fix to the acid stomach problem. Unfortunately, milk has a rebound action and would eventually encourage secretion of more stomach acid, which causes the acid stomach. To solve the problem, try adjusting your diet by eating a small meal at dinner and have a small snack such as crackers before sleep.
