Let’s talk about the vagus nerve and digestion. One important function of the vagus nerve is regulating the hydrochloric acid in your stomach. A problem with the vagus nerve can lead to a cascade of digestive problems and health issues.
Acetylcholine is the main neurotransmitter involved in the vagus nerve. Acetylcholine needs vitamin B1, but a deficiency of B1 is a common problem. If you’re deficient in vitamin B1, your vagus nerve can’t make the hydrochloric acid you need.
A lack of hydrochloric acid can potentially lead to an increased risk of various health concerns, including:
• Acid reflux
• Problems digesting protein
• A lack of mineral absorption
• H. pylori
• Stomach cancer
• A lack of bile
• Leaky gut
• Immune problems
• Autoimmune problems
• Cognitive problems
• Mood problems
Consider taking natural vitamin B1 immediately. You can get it from nutritional yeast or a natural supplement. To increase hydrochloric acid naturally, try taking betaine hydrochloride.
If you have gastritis or ulcers, you may want to take zinc carnosine, but if you have SIBO, garlic may be beneficial. For stomach inflammation, try a carnivore diet.
