Bananas can cause heartburn?


So odd question, does anyone know if bananas can cause heartburn? Following the paleo diet and I had banana mash with blueberries and cinnamon and now I have horrible heartburn.

  1. Yes !!!! So much heartburn I feel like my throat is burnt from all the acid

  2. If its really bad, mix 1 tsp of baking soda with 8 oz of warm water and drink..

  3. Baking soda is acid reducer and works great for heartburn

  4. Apple cider vinegar is great for reducing heartburn.

  5. I am on prescription meds for heartburn, but at times still get STRESS heartburn where my ears burn also…baking soda takes it righy away. You cant do it alot due to sodium levels, but a quick fix is good. Plus you done have to drink the full 8 ozs either..

  6. Not for me, but my cousin can’t eat them unless she cooks them. Riper bananas are much easier to digest. I’m a little suspicious of the cinnamon, though…

  7. It’s probably because it’s high in histamine, at least for me that discovery was a game changer. When I looked up the list of high histamine foods it was the connection between all the things that gave me heartburn (sadly, also bacon and vinegars). I was already on autoimmune paleo diet but heartburn didn’t get better until I cut out my daily banana and spinach
