Hypochlorhydria – A bit of a mouthful, but surprisingly common! Symptoms of low stomach acid are related to impaired digestion, increased susceptibility to infection, and reduced absorption of nutrients from food. Many chronic health conditions have been associated with low levels of stomach acid. These include conditions such as allergies, thyroiddys function, acne, psoriasis/eczema and autoimmune disorders. If you have questions or concerns about your symptoms or risk factors for low stomach acid production, speak with a healthcare practitioner. They can help develop a treatment plan that is best for you.
