Lansoprazole capsules provide instant relief from acid reflux, heartburn, and stomach ulcers. This medication eases these recurrent symptoms by inhibiting the production of acid in the stomach. The capsules are available in strengths of 15mg or 30mg.
Stomach acids are significant for the digestive process. They act by breaking down food prior to it reaching the intestines. Usually, the oesophagus is guarded against these acids by the oesophageal sphincter. This sphincter is comprised of a group of muscles that form a one-way barrier; allowing food to enter the stomach, but preventing acids from leaving. However, sometimes, this sphincter can weaken, which allows stomach acid to pass through this barrier and enter the oesophagus. This is acid reflux. Heartburn is a consequence of acid reflux, caused by acid ‘burning, the tissues of the oesophagus. Heartburn has nothing to do with the heart. It gets its name purely because the burning sensation is felt in the chest.
Many of us will experience the occasional bout of heartburn. However, some sufferers can experience these symptoms very frequently – this will likely be due to gastro-oesophageal reflux disease (GORD). Lansoprazole is a prescription-only-medicine for GORD and other related conditions, such as stomach ulcers and an inflamed oesophagus. Lansoprazole works by inhibiting the activity of proton pumps (proteins that produce acids in the stomach). This decreases the levels of acid in the stomach, relieving the associated symptoms of acid reflux.
