Optimal signaling occurs when there is a low ph in the duodenal bulb. (i.e. Proper stomach acid production). 80-85% of your food is "digested by your pancreatic enzymes. (guyton). ...Read more

Any way to cure the intrinsic factor in the digestion system for the absorption of vitamin B12 complex?
Yes and No: Most intrinsic factor deficiencies are due to either partial gastrectomy or auto-antibodies that attacked the parietal cells of the stomach. In both, the damage may already be done. However, you can get B12 in the body in a few ways. 1) take a higher dose of B12 starting at 2mg (literature supported), 2) take sublingual drops (salivary gland absorption), 3) get im injections of methyl b12. ...Read more

Sure it does...: The high acid environment of your stomache, inresponse to food ingestion, is needed to activate some digestive proteins such as enterokinase and tripsynogens (and many others) to help digest the foods u consume. Antacid use is thus not natural and can affect the process of digestion, but some people need antacid to help with pain/ulcers etc...It is compliacted process. Have fun learning. ...Read more
Please clarify: Hi. Protein structure depends on salts, pH, presence or absence of amphipathic structures (membranes), presence or absence of other proteins, etc. Protein structure is not influenced by insulin per se. In the organism, insulin is anabolic and fosters protein synthesis, but the structure of the protein is not within the purview of insulin action. So I'm not really sure what you're trying to ask. ...Read more
