The Magnesium Miracle-Dr. Carolyn Dean

Most people blame too much stomach acid as the cause of indigestion when in fact stomach acid is natural and necessary for health. Stomach acid is indispensable for proper digestion as well as a healthy immune response. Blocking stomach acid for long periods can lead to many serious health issues. When stomach acid is low, many essential nutrients cannot be absorbed, including amino acids, vitamins and essential minerals such as magnesium, iron, calcium and zinc.

Acid blockers such as Nexium, which has recently received approval for a nonprescription over-the-counter version called Nexium® 24HR (esomeprazole 20 mg), have the following stated safety warnings and serious side effects according to their officially published literature.
Low magnesium levels in your body. This problem can be serious. Low magnesium can happen in some people who take a proton pump inhibitor medicine for at least three months. You may or may not have symptoms of low magnesium.
Chronic (lasting a long time) inflammation of the stomach lining (atrophic gastritis). Using Nexium for a long period of time may increase the risk of inflammation to your stomach lining. You may or may not have symptoms. Tell your doctor if you have stomach pain, nausea, vomiting or weight loss
