It's known that proton pumps exist in all cells in our bodies and help us to get rid of damaged proteins (present a disposal system).

PPI's (omeprazole, pantoprazole, esomeprazole, lansoprazole and other prazole) shut down this little pumps in our stomach, therefore we get a higher PH and the lining can eventually heal by time.

Do these drugs shut down all the pumps across our body or do they just target the ones inside the stomach?
