This is good news and is a very real alternative to the proton ion pumps. Another valuable addition would be DGL Licorice which effectively stops excess acid production. There are many reasons not to take pharmaceutical medications for ulcers and excess stomach acid. Glutamine Supplements Show Promise In Treating Stomach Ulcers
"Nearly 20 years ago, it was discovered that bacteria known as Helicobacter pylori were responsible for stomach ulcers. Since then, antibiotics have become the primary therapy used to combat the H. pylori infection, which affects approximately six percent of the world population and is also a primary cause of stomach cancer. But today the bacteria is growing increasingly resistant to antibiotics."

"Our findings suggest that extra glutamine in the diet could protect against gastric damage caused by H. pylori
," says senior author Susan Hagen, PhD, Associate Director of Research in the Department of Surgery at BIDMC and Associate Professor of Surgery at Harvard Medical School. "Gastric damage develops when the bacteria weakens the stomach's protective mucous coating, damages cells and elicits a robust immune response that is ineffective at ridding the infection." Eventually, she notes, years of infection result in a combination of persistent gastritis, cell damage and an environment conducive to cancer development.
