Paheli is suffering from indigestion due to acidity. Is it advisable to give her orange juice in this situation and why?

Answer :

No! She should not take orange juice in case of acidity. During acidity, the amount of hydrochloric acid present in our stomach (for digestion of food) rises. Giving orange juice which itself is sour and hence acidic (contains citric acid) will increase amount of acid more and worsen the condition. Instead she should be given basic substances like Milk of Magnesia for treatment.
