/ 06:57 PM January 22, 2013

MANILA, Philippines – With the holidays now over, Filipinos focus on new beginnings for 2013 – new career, new relationships and new and improved health. After all the stress from last-minute shopping sprees, over-flowing food and booze from countless reunions and sleepless nights from holiday parties, more Filipinos may be at risk for hyperacidity.

To promote tummy health, Omepron (Omeprazole) has released the Tummy Tracker Facebook Application to start the year and to educate Facebook users on digestive health. This engaging app provides consumers with information on common recurring hyperacidity triggers and evaluates their lifestyle to determine the current health of their tummy.
Omeprazole (Omepron) is known to aid and provide long-term treatment to digestive problems such as hyperacidity, dyspepsia, gastritis and heartburn often caused by stress and an unhealthy lifestyle. Also known as a proton pump inhibitor (PPI), Omeprazole (Omepron) comes in a hard gelatin capsule that reduces gastric acid secretion.


PPIs, such as Omeprazole (Omepron), are the most potent drug for acid-related disorders, providing longer relief than any other drugs such as antacids. The result is optimum control in acid suppression, trusted by doctors and users.

Omepron’s Tummy Tracker Facebook App delves into the consumers’ tummy health by asking them questions about their daily diet, physical activity and general lifestyle. The tracker results will give an idea on how vulnerable the consumers are to acid-related gastro-intestinal disorders.  At the end of the tracker, consumers will also be led to a list of different local Gastroenterology Centers they can visit to consult about their digestive health.


“The Tummy Tracker App is another testament of our commitment to promote healthy digestive system among Filipinos. Through our Facebook application, we hope more Filipinos will be aware of their tummy’s health and will be proactive in putting a stop to the recurring hyperacidity that debilitates their daily activities,” said Renato T. Castañeda, Westmont General Manager and Division Vice President.

Omepron (Omeprazole) 20 mg is available for only P44/capsule through leading drugstores nationwide. You can also ask your doctor about it. It’s time to live a life less asim and to live more awesome with Omepron!

For cases of recurring hyperacidity that might need more attention, visit a doctor.
