Since I was in college, I have had issues with heartburn.  Depending on what I would eat, I would have serious discomfort day and night.  To the point that over the years I try to stay away from many of my favorite foods.  I’ve had countless nights that I slept at an incline to ease the discomfort.  One of my favorite meals is keilbasa in spaghetti sauce but, it would trigger my frequent heartburn so I would try to avoid it.
During this time of year, it’s the worst feeling to see a large table spread of amazing foods and not be able to partake in them out of fear of what may come.  My favorite part of the holidays is the food so finding a way to enjoy it with everyone else is very important to me.
Nexium® 24HR Capsules 42ct are great if you have frequent heartburn….like me.  It is easily found at your local Walgreens.
Nexium®24HR Capsules is for the treatment of frequent heartburn.  It’s best to start taking this product a few days before a party or special dinner is coming up as it may take up to 1-4 days for full effect.  The great thing is that it will keep working even after you indulge.
Now I can even have my famous homemade cranberry-orange sauce during the holidays without salivating watching everyone else dig in.  The hint of orange from the orange juice and zest really just take this recipe over the top!
I have always bought cranberry sauce from the store in the past but, 2 years ago I decided to venture out and try to make it my from scratch.  I wanted to add a special twist that would make it different from the original.  I was so shocked how simple and easy it was to make and it was way better than anything from the store.  I hope you will get to try it this holiday season.  (Recipe below)
One pill provides all day and all night protection.  This is fantastic because, most of my issues tend to happen at night when I lay down and get relaxed.  So, this holiday I will be eating all the acidic, spicy and fried foods my heart desires with Nexium®24HR Capsules in tow.
