Low gastric acid can leave the body vulnerable to a number of diseases and health complications. Stomach acid, also referred to as gastric acid, is essential for the digestive process.

Cimetidine was a huge commercial success; by some accounts, it was the first blockbuster drug.
The foam forms a physical barrier to the reflux of liquid. At the same time, the antacid bound to the foam neutralizes acid that comes into contact with the foam.
