Tummy Troubles | The Importance of Stomach Acid

There’s a problem you’ve likely never heard of that contributes to the development of many chronic health problems, including excess or deficient weight, poor muscle tone, mood disorders, arthritis, osteoporosis, autoimmune diseases, and even cancer. And although you may be unfamiliar with this problem, there’s a high probability that you have it. In fact, some health experts believe that your chance of having it are about the same as your age. So, if you’re 50, there’s a 50% chance you have it. If you’re 70, there’s a 70% chance you have it.

The problem is hypochlorhydria, a fancy name for low stomach acid. The ironic thing bout this health issue is that most people who have it think they have the opposite problem. They believe they have too much stomach acid because they often suffer from acid indigestion, heartburn, or acid reflux.

Based on this incorrect assumption, they take antacids, or even acid blockers, trying to fix their tummy troubles. This approach not only fails to correct the real problem, it actually causes their health to further deteriorate.
