    The milk of magnesia is a suspension of magnesium hydroxide in water, which is a strong base that is used to neutralize excess stomach acid. The presence of stomach acid or hydrochloric acid (HCl) that is known to be a strong acid will react with the strong base and neutralization reaction occurs since conjugate partners produced negligible strength where the products are a salt and water.
