Review: "Hypochlorydia" means the inadequate production of stomach acid by the parietal cells in the stomach. "Achlorydia" means a complete lack of stomach acid production. Experts believe that about half of all people over 65 suffer hypochlorydia, as well as many younger people.
It’s vital that we have enough stomach acid to break down food and release nutrients, and to kill any opportunistic invaders entering our bodies via the mouth.
Hypochlorydia symptoms can include heartburn, indigestion, gas, burping, bloating, flatulence, stomach pain or ache, feeling too full after eating (unless you genuinely have eaten too much!), constipation, diarrhoea and breaking down nutrients in food insufficiently.
So, why might your stomach acid production be low? There can be many reasons. Stress can impair production. Trauma such as emotional shock or a burn can stop it suddenly. Alcohol and food allergy substances can damage the parietal cells in the stomach, and this affects production. Bacteria such as helicobacter pylori can also affect acid levels.

"I've been taking Digestive Compound with meals for the last six months. Before I began taking it -- during the day, and especially after meals -- I could feel tartar film on my teeth. I could literally scrape the muck off! Now that I take Digestive Compound, I don't have any tartar on my teeth. It is amazing. I've also noticed that I don't feel as bloated after meals."
-- John Simon, Tenterfield, NSW
"Thank you (and Australia Post) for your prompt service! I just received my order, the next day after ordering. I was stressing that I wouldn't get it before I depart tomorrow, and, wow, it's on my doorstep today. I know this sounds silly, but I almost feel that I'm addicted to Digestive Compound. I'm going away for a week, and was doubting that my body would function properly without it. Mind over matter maybe!"
