Digestion. Many people think having stomach acid is bad
and that it can cause a variety of stomach problems, including stomach ulcers. In truth, you need your stomach acid for proper
digestion of carbohydrates and proteins. While too much stomach acid can lead to problems,
just the right amount is necessary for good health. Stomach Acid and Protein Breakdown. Without stomach acid or by taking too many
antacids, the proteins in your diet can’t be broken down. Stomach acid causes denaturation of proteins,
which involves opening them up from their coiled state so that enzymes can trim them
down to become amino acids, which are the building blocks for other proteins in the
body. Low stomach acid can lead to a deficiency
of protein. This means that your body must take protein
from sources within the body, such as the muscles and joints. Muscle weakness and arthritis can come out
of not having enough protein in the diet. Stomach Acid and Calcium Assimilation. You need enough stomach acid to cleave the
calcium from whatever protein it’s on and to allow for the digestion and uptake of calcium. A lack of adequate calcium absorption can
lead to diseases and problems such as osteoporosis and muscle cramps. Dealing with Low Stomach Acid Conditions. If you are compulsively taking antacids or
suffer from a disease that results in low stomach acid, there are things you can do
to improve your nutrition in spite of the low acid production. Here are some tips: • Eat protein at the start of the meal. Most of the stomach acid is excreted as soon
as you begin eating. If you eat carbohydrates such as is in a salad
for the first course of your meal, you waste the stomach acid, which is washed out by the
carbohydrates, leaving very little to digest the protein you will eat later. When you eat your meat course, nothing is
left in the stomach to digest it with. This leads to protein malabsorption and protein
deficiency. • Try taking an acid supplement. If you suffer from severe lack of stomach
acid or if eating the protein at the start of the meal doesn’t work, you may need to
take betaine hydrochloric acid tablets. One or two of the tablets should be taken
following the meal. If you take the tablets before the meal, the
natural production of your stomach acid will be inhibited. The idea is to help your stomach make as much
of its own acid as possible and supplementing the acid your stomach makes with the hydrochloride
tablets. Once you have enough stomach acid (by stopping
antacids or by taking a hydrochloride acid supplement), you need the digestive enzymes
that work on the proteins in that type of environment. These digestive enzymes serve to cleave off
the amino acids for maximal digestion. Some products for low acid conditions and
stomach trouble contain both the stomach acidifier (hydrochloric acid) and pepsin, which is the
enzyme needed to digest protein. Pepsinogen is the actual pro-enzyme secreted
by the stomach. It turns into its active form, pepsin, which
acts on the stomach proteins to reduce them to amino acids. Pepsin works best under the acidic conditions
of the stomach so without stomach acid, the pepsin will not function properly. If pepsin doesn’t do its job, there is no
other part of the digestive tract that can take up the slack and you will become protein
deficient. Stomach Acid and Pathogens. If you don’t produce enough stomach acid,
you are more prone to getting overgrowths of parasites, fungi, and bacteria in the stomach. This can negatively impact your health in
many ways. Stomach acid also helps keep you from getting
food poisoning and actually prevents stomach cancer. If you’ve liked the video give it a thumb
