Hi everyone,
 
Is low acid coffee ok to use for gerd?  Has anyone tried it, and what do you think?
 
Desperately wanting coffee!

Hi Nolique,

I have been drinking the Simply Smooth and haven't had any problem. I drink two 12oz cups every morning but I put milk in it. I think it tastes fine and with it I get my coffee fix.

Hi Nolique,
 
There are several coffees that have low acid.  One in particular is really good.  www.healthwisecoffee.com .  Can drink quite a bit without problems, and great taste.  Others you might look at also are Puroast, and Hevla, which I've also tried.  But HealthWise is better to my taste. 
 
Good luck!

Hi everyone!
 
We have the puroast brand here (at the grocery store).  I thought I would try it.  It is great to find out about the other brands too.  Sometimes I get nervous about trying coffee again after having the gastritis issue, but it is so hard not to have some caffeine each day to stay moving!  The green tea doesn't cut it sometimes! :(

Hi Nolique,
Speaking from personal experience here, the trigger for me wasn't the acid in the coffee but was the caffeine in the coffee so any kind of low acid remedy didn't work. I ended up quitting caffeine all together and I'm really much better for it. I sleep better than I ever did when I drank coffee and I wake more rested so I don't need the upper of the coffee anymore. Probably more importantly (at least for me) when I need to be awake I can still have a little bit of caffeine and it's much more effective than it ever was before.

I know cutting out caffeine is a tough road but I ultimately found it rewarding. It's nice not to NEED a drug every morning.
