More than 4,000,000 people in the USA suffer from stomach ulcers each year which can lead to abdominal pain, indigestion, and possibly surgical repair. Nearly, 40% of all adult Americans suffer from at least one bout of heartburn each month, a condition forming in the stomach which backs up into your lower chest area.
