Uses of Hydrochloric Acid (HCI)

Learn about the incredible uses of Hydrochloric Acid (HCL).

Hydrochloric Acid (HCI) Facts

  • Healthcare professionals agree that most people over age 40 start losing the ability to produce an adequate supply of hydrochloric acid (HCl).
  • Zypan, a source of hydrochloric acid, pancreatic enzymes and pepsin, aids in the digestion of fats, protein carbohydrates, and helps calcium absorption. 
  • Proper stomach pH leads to absorption of calcium, vitamin B12 and other nutrients and minerals. 
  • HCI increases phagocytosis (blood cells that destroy bacteria and cell waste in the blood stream). 
  • Acid reflux, hiatal hernia, burping and belching following meals, diarrhea or constipation can all be signs of inadequate hydrochloric acid.

Hydrochloric Acid (HCI) Uses


Why is hydrochloric acid in the stomach so important?
HCl increases bile and pancreatic juices, helping complete digestion of fats, oils, and starches, which can lead to less bloating, better mineral absorption and complete, efficient digestion.

Allergic Reactions

Hydrochloric acid improves the digestion and breakdown of protein complexes (allergens, toxic metabolites) which might otherwise pass into circulation and build up toxins.


Many stubborn forms of anemia involve deficiencies of certain amino acids with which hemoglobin and red blood cells are built.


The use of a natural hydrochloric acid aids in the utilization of calcium and other minerals as well as improving protein metabolism and relieving the gastritis, belching, flatulence, etc. The elevated blood levels of uric acid can be rapidly reduced and symptoms improved by using HCl.


HCl was my top pick for travel to Asia. Keeping your pH high in the stomach kills bacteria and other invaders that could lead to severe illness, infection, and days in a hotel room!


Improvement of the intestinal flora and other digestive improvements are affected through the use of hydrochloric acid in chronic constipation.


Hydrochloric acid restores normal acidity so natural secretion of insulin can maintain its activity. The hydrochloric acid also produces better liver and gallbladder action.

Weight Loss

Due to physical, mental and environmental stress, hydrochloric acid deficiency is present in the majority of patients I see. Heartburn is usually caused by a lack of hydrochloric acid, rather than excess acid. Hydrochloric acid deficiency slows digestion, causing food to rotten and ripen in the stomach. This leads to belching, bloating, and heartburn. HCl prevents this from happening by keeping your stomach at a pH 9, so it can easily digest and absorb nutrients.
