What are PPI's

Proton pumps are found in our stomach lining. Their role is to pump hydrogen ions from the stomach lining into the stomach to create the gastric acid we need to digest food and kill bacteria.

Protein Pump Inhibitors (PPIs), binds to these proton pumps and stops them from pushing hydrogen ions into the stomach. This means the stomach produces less gastric acid.

By blocking the proton pumps, PPIs act on stomach acid at the source. This makes the stomach less acidic and less likely to cause heartburn symptoms.
