ACID REMOVERS IN THE STOMACH

Food taken by us reaches the stomach through the Esophagus.  The acids secreted in the inner walls of the stomach react with this food and concentrates it.

Hydro Chloric Acid (HCL) is one of the acids secreted in the stomach. When we there is mental depression, this acid secrets more. So, itching comes in the stomach and becomes a cause for sores .

The concentration of HCL acid is 0.082M.when this rises up to 0.1M the inner walls of the stomach get erosion.   Due to this, heartburn comes. . to normalize the concentration of acid Antacids are helpful.
