Stomach acid is a vital component in the breaking down of food into molecules that are small enough to be processed by the gastrointestinal system. When you eat food, you chew the food into smaller pieces to help the stomach. Once in the stomach, the process of breaking down continues and it is important for the breaking down process for the stomach acid levels to be between 1 and 3. Acid is used to break down food into smaller molecules that the intestines can then process to provide you with the nutrients contained in your food. Certain medications also require stomach acid to be within 1 and 3 in order to be broken down and absorbed.
