I really think it depends on what the cause of your acid reflux problem is. I also have leaky gut syndrome, which is causing my digestive upsets. I absolutely have to avoid acidy foods or I pay for it. I know people who have acid reflux, but no other problems, and they seem to be able to tolerate certain acidy foods. I guess you'd have to try it to see where you fit in. I did, and it didn't work.
