Low Stomach Acidity Test
A normal stomach acid creates a pH of 1.5 to 2.5. But as we age, the parietal cells in the stomach lining produce less stomach acid (HCl). Stomach acid is necessary for absorption of many minerals but is also our first line of defence against food poisoning, H.pylori, parasites, and other infections. Without adequate acid, we leave ourselves open to decreased immune resistance.
