Gastric Acid Balance -- Heartburn & Gastritis Not Always Caused by Too Much Acid - Page 2

Conclusion
Healthy digestion and absorption of nutrients is dependent upon the secretion of gastric acid.  When gastric secretions are reduced, the result can lead to nutritional deficiencies and a variety of chronic disorders.  Low secretion of gastric acid can also allow orally-ingested pathogens to prevail and contribute to their overgrowth in the stomach and small intestine.  Hydrochloric acid (HCL) supplementation is a safe and effective means of restoring normal gastric levels, particularly in cases where age or chronic conditions indicate that nutrients, particularly B vitamins and minerals, are not being properly utilized.
