Mode of Action of Omee 20mg Cap

How Does It Work?

Omee 20mg Cap composition reduces the amount of acid secreted by the stomach by inhibiting a cellular-level pump in your stomach called the proton pump, which is essential for acid production. The stomach will secrete much less acid when proton pump is blocked. This alleviates your symptoms caused due to acidity.
