Stomach Dysfunction

Approximately 90 percent of Americans produce too little HCl.
 
So, what happens if you do not produce enough HCl?

Our first line of defense against pathogenic microorganisms is gone:
– Yeast, prions, bacteria, viruses, parasites, etc… are actually little proteins.
– When the pH is correct in the stomach, pepsin digests these microorganisms…they become food.
– When the pH is not correct, an environment is created in which these organisms thrive and raise havoc in the GI tract.
