AOR Mastica Chios 400mg 120vcaps



For decades, it was believed that ulcers were caused by having too much acid in the stomach. Spicy foods and stress were targeted as acidic culprits; antacids, or more powerful antisecretory drugs like omeprazole (Losec® or Prilosec®), were prescribed in order to suppress the body's ability to make the "offending" stomach acid. Well, it's true that the gnawing, burning pain of an ulcer flares up when acid burning into the injured stomach wall. But the acid doesn't cause the ulcer itself. Instead, recent research has proven that ninety percent of peptic ulcers, and sixty to eighty percent of gastric ulcers are caused by germs - by an infection with the bacterium Helicobacter pylori.
