Gastric hyperacidity occurs when the gastric acid-producing parietal cells in the gastric mucosa release too much acid over a longer period of time. Acidification of the stomach is reflected in various digestive problems such as acid reflux, heartburn or stomach pain.

Further tips and information on treatment
