The digestive process is the key to good health and, when imbalanced, it brings consequences to our health.
Did you know that digestion starts in the mouth? When we chew, our saliva releases enzymes that break down the foods.
The food then follows to the stomach, which expands and liberates gastric acid.
The acid needs pH to dissolve the proteins and make vitamin B12 more accessible for the intestines. An excess of gastric acid can cause heartburn.
But what happens if our body doesn’t produce enough gastric acid?
When that happens, the body loses its capacity for processing proteins.
Exaggerating in the meals also overloads gastric acid production. Not to mention that when it happens, our body doesn’t absorb all the nutrients, and we end up malnourished, even when eating well.
Luckily, baking soda can be used to find out what is going on in your stomach. It is easy.
This is a homemade test, and you still need to talk to your doctor to analyze your case.
