Then these other areas are going to tend to slow down this can cause a decrease in our stomach acid production which can not only make it difficult for us to initially start breaking down our food but it is also required for the signaling pathways that activate all the steps that follow it’s actually the low ph or the acidity of the stomach which signals to things

Like our gallbladder and our pancreas letting them know that they need to get prepared and that food is on the way one of the big issues here is when we have low thyroid contributing to low stomach acid production it traps us in one of those loops that we often talk about low thyroid causes problems with digestion and those digestive problems can then feed back

And cause issues with our thyroid gland additionally some other common causes of low stomach acid production include low glucose levels and low b vitamins the process of making stomach acid is very energetically demanding and both glucose and b vitamins are heavily involved in the energy production required for this process lastly be aware that certain kinds of

Food sensitivities and food reactions can also cause changes in stomach acid production i think people usually think about reactions to food causing an increase in acidity but that’s not always the case now some of these scenarios already sound like you you may be a good candidate to use apple cider vinegar but here’s some additional symptoms that you can look for

To make sure that it’s a good fit if you notice severe gas and bloating within 30 minutes of eating if you struggle to digest protein-rich meals or if you have a history of reflux all of these are big indicators that you could be dealing with a low acid environment in your stomach but keep in mind this is just the first step in the digestive process and issues

The apple cider vinegar usage as long as you continue to maintain the benefits eventually many of my patients go from using it three times a day to using it only one time a day in the morning by taking it before breakfast you can set yourself up for digestive success throughout the rest of the day while mixing one tablespoon of apple cider vinegar and water is

The easiest and quickest way to do things i usually recommend a slightly more complex recipe to my patients that way things are more enjoyable for them when we tend to enjoy things it makes it easier for us to be more compliant and see success long term so in addition to the one tablespoon of apple cider vinegar i’ll have my patients mix that with eight ounces

Of unflavored sparkling water one teaspoon of honey and either a quarter or a half of a squeezed lemon if you’re adverse to the taste of the apple cider vinegar this is a great way to do it and even if you like the taste this is a fun way to mix up your morning routine and give you an enjoyable beverage to go along with your breakfast so if you struggle with low
