ulcer is an open sore that forms on your stomach lining. The ulcer itself is
medically called ‘peptic ulcer’, which also can occur on the inside lining of
the small intestine’s upper portion (this is called duodenal ulcer).
sore develops along the path for what you eat and drink travel during
digestion. So it could be quite painful if you consume foods /beverages that
irritate the lesion. The good news, many people with the disease can still eat
normally — whatever they want as long as they stick to a healthy-balanced

called ‘hydrochloric acid (HCl)’ during the process of digestion. The pH of
this substance is between 0.1 and 1.0 which is probably the most acidic thing
known. HCl is one of the main components for gastric juice with pH of about
2.0! With digestive enzymes, digestive juice processes what you eat and drink.
you know that the digestive liquids of the stomach are already very acidic.
Eating acidic foods actually don’t have a significant effect to make the
