Becoming More Heart Healthy

A common heartburn medication may also play a role in making you more heart healthy.

Researchers in Japan say the same chemical reaction that causes heartburn also appears to weaken and damage diseased hearts.

They have found the medication, known as Pepcid, could not only ease your heartburn, but help slow the progression of chronic heart failure.

Doctors say much more research needs to be done before they would advise heart patients to take Pepcid or any other heartburn medication for heart treatment.
