Hydrochloric acid (HCl) is an important gastric secretion that enables the body to break down proteins, activate important enzymes and hormones, and protect against bacterial overgrowth in the gut.

Achlorhydria (the complete absence of stomach acid) and hypochlorhydria (low stomach acid) are common digestive problems. Symptoms of low stomach acid include heartburn, indigestion and bloating, among others. Additionally, a number of chronic health conditions are correlated with impaired acid secretion, including allergies, asthma and gallstones.
