Digestion Stress?

Why so HCl Deficient?

  • Stress: Sympathetic overload shuts down the parasympathetic system.
  • Too much protein: Requires greatest amount of HCL (hydrochloric acid).
  • Poor eating habits:
    • Pig out all at once;
    • Don’t chew food well;
    • Drink too much water;
    • Drink liquid during meals.
  • Lack of Thiamine / Zinc: B1 and Zinc are both necessary for HCL production in the stomach. Zinc #1 deficient mineral.
  • Antacids: And other prescribed medications or drugs designed to suppress stomach acid production before it even gets started!
  • Alcohol robs the body’s ability to make HCL.
  • Salt Free Diets: Sodium need.
  • Aging: Decreased HCL production
