|When we eat food, our body needs to break it down into usable nutrients and vitamins. The process of this breakdown starts off in the stomach. The stomach secretes an acid that is essential in the digestive process, as this acid helps in breaking down the food during digestion.
Usually, protective mechanisms in the stomach and proximal intestine make sure that the acid levels are in balance. However, when the stomach produces too much acid, it results in a condition known as Acidity, or APD. Excess gastric acid is more prevalent in the morning when the stomach is empty.
