Core Tip Japanese apricot (JA), which is eaten as a daily food in Japan, is considered to have medicinal benefits. We focused on the effect of JA on gastroesophageal reflux disease (GERD)-related symptoms in this study. First, GERD-related symptoms were examined in 1303 Japanese individuals using the validated questionnaire, the Frequency Scale for Symptoms of GERD (FSSG). JA was consumed daily by 392 subjects. Then, FSSG scores were compared between subjects who took one or more JA daily and those who did not. This study indicates that daily intake of JA improves digestive dysmotility symptoms, resulting in relief of GERD-related symptoms.
