Stomach Acid Problems

By Team TNV

Gastric Acid is the acid responsible for food digestion in the stomach.

Made up of hydrochloric acid, sodium chloride and potassium chloride, its normal pH ranges between 1.5 - 3.5.

Anything less or more leads to stomach acid problems.

Do you bloat, belch and flatulate after meals?

You may actually be a victim of stomach acid issues.

When you're always full and doesn't feel like eating even when you've not eaten anything, this can be a result of stomach acid problems.

Stomachaches, diarrhoea and constipation are also signs of stomach acid problems.

Heartburns that extend from the stomach to the chest and perhaps throat are also signs.

Other signs include feeling irritated, vomiting and finding undigested food substances in your stools.

Stomach acid problems can be caused by alcohol, stress, malnutrition, poor dietary habits and advancement in age.

Are you experiencing any of these listed symptoms?

Don't hesitate to see the doctor!!

Lack of proper medical attention may result in stomach lining damage and gastric ulcers, and finally, stomach cancer.

However, you need to take certain precautions like reducing stress, eating foods that are high in complex carbohydrates and avoid alcohol, oily and processed foods.
