The stomach naturally produces hydrochloric acid to keep its contents acidic. This is important for effective digestion by enzymes and for killing pathogenic bacteria present in the food so that the ingested food is sterilised. It also allows Vitamin B12 to be extracted from the food we eat. However as we age, we tend to produce less acid and so a supplement can be useful to help replace some of the lost acidity.
If you have not done so already, it may be worth discussing your symptoms with your doctor, as they would be best placed to advise you whether your symptoms are being caused by low stomach acid.
I wish the tables were smaller.
I am sorry to hear that you have been experiencing difficulty in swallowing our tablets. For future reference we are able to send out a sample of any of our tablets / capsules (excluding THRs) should you wish to assess the size of them. I have contacted you directly to discuss this further.
It is important to ensure that you have low acid before trying this product.
