The first time I ever experienced heartburn was when I was a few months pregnant. It was like a fire that wasn’t quite in my belly or my chest, and I felt just awful. I was terrified there was something wrong, but a quick Google search revealed it was just heartburn. But it felt SO MUCH WORSE, and that’s how my husband ended up at Walgreens at 2AM buying antacids. Ever since then, I’ve kept antacids in the cabinet. But it seems after I turned 45 they found a new home – in my purse!

I recently got to try Boiron Acidil Meltaway Tablets, which are homeopathic melting tablets for occasional heartburn, upset stomach or acid indigestion symptoms. They can be taken before or after a meal that you may absolutely love, but discover one day it doesn’t love you back. It’s no fun to indulge and end up with bloating, gas or the dreaded flaming heartburn. The Acidil tablets melt under your tongue pretty quickly and have absolutely no taste.
Made with Plant-Based Active Ingredients
Boiron Acidil is the #1 best-selling heartburn homeopathic medicine in natural food stores, and made with sustainably sourced, plant-based active ingredients:
- Abies nigra 4C HPUS—Relieves stomach pain after eating*
- Carbo vegetabilis 4C HPUS—Relieves stomach bloating with gas*
- Nux vomica 4C HPUS —Relieves heartburn due to excessive eating and drinking*
- Robinia pseudoacacia 4C HPUS—Relieves heartburn with acid indigestion*
The letters HPUS indicate that this ingredient is officially included in the Homeopathic Pharmacopœia of the United States.
The last time heartburn snuck up on me was on one of my favorite nights- Taco Tuesday! We waited too long for a table so I was starving by the time we got to the table. I dove right into my favorite Spicy Jalapeño Margarita and gobbled a pile of chips and salsa on a very empty stomach and instead of feeling better, I suddenly felt very very Wrong. I thought I was going to be sick. The burning was in my chest and kept getting worse until I realized what was happening. It was the heartburn again! I had to leave dinner immediately and find a store with antacids. I didn’t even get to have my tacos.
So this time I at dinner I came armed with the Boiron Acidil. I took one before the meal as a precaution, but near the end I started to get that familiar burning sensation. I immediately let two tablets dissolve under my tongue and the discomfort slowly eased up. The instructions are to let two dissolve for the first dose and then follow up with two more every 15 minutes up to an hour. I feel like it was effective at putting that fire out before it started to grow and plan to keep these little tablets in my purse now.*
