Stomach is a organ that plays role in digestion, secretion, motility, intoxication and absorption functions. pH of stomach pH changes between 0.9 - 2.0 [1]. Gastritis is known as the inflammatory reaction of the stomach wall from the mucosa to the serosa. Inflammatory lesions can be acute erosive gastritis or chronic atrophic gastritis [2].

The basic principle in treatment of gastritis is that reduce the amount of stomach acid (antacids, H2 blockers, proton pump inhibitors, etc.) and to treat the underlying disease (stress/acute gastritis, H. Pylori infection, B12 deficiency, etc.). Oral supplementation of  B12, iron and folic acid are recommended for the treatment of clinical symptoms in the early stages of pernicious anemia caused by autoimmune atrophic gastritis.
