Not just that, it even works as a venting system for our stomachs. When our systems breakdown food there is a natural waste by-product, hydrogen ions. Swanson Hydrochloric Acid (with Pepsin) has been noted for its use as a venting mechanism for those hydrogen ions away from our delicate digestive system.
What is perhaps not so commonly known is that under and overproduction of stomach acids like Hydrochloric acid actually have quite similar effects on our bodies.
