Why agent works

Apple cider vinegar, an acid, causes the esophageal sphincter to contract and keeps acid in the stomach.

Just a small correction,

Just a small correction, apple cider vinegar is not a base, it is an acid. The reason it might work as a remedy for heartburn is because it closes the sphincter between the esophagus and the stomach. If you add baking soda and water, however, you create a buffering solution which will help neutralize stomach acid.

Well I must say that I

Well I must say that I suffered from heartburn this evening. It felt like my left breast was on fire. I tried the Apple Cider Vinegar and was so surprised at how fast it worked. I took it straight, one teaspoon, although I was shocked at the horrible taste it was very effective. Thanks for the much needed help!!
