The stomach is high in the abdominal cavity, just below the diaphragm. The stomach is part of the digestive system and has two different functions: digesting food and it plays an important role in the defense against microorganisms. The optimal functioning of the stomach is influenced by all kinds of factors. Maintaining normal acidity in the stomach is therefore of great importance.
The digestion of fats and proteins starts in the stomach. The stomach makes gastric juice. This juice contains stomach acid and enzymes that help with the digestion of food. One of those enzymes that the stomach produces is pepsinogen. This enzyme is converted to pepsin by stomach acid. In addition to the digestion of nutrients, heartburn also protects against invaders.
