I heard drinking too much coffee is bad for the stomach, because it adds too much to gastric acid.?

It can be.

Gastric
Yes, there's a change in the acid, but for most people the change is not enough to make a noticable difference. And if there is a difference noticed, choose a different beverage.

Why does anxiety seem to produce more gastric acid in stomach?

Anxiety

What's the difference between mucus and stomach (gastric) acid?

2 different things

Gastric
Mucus is a clear secretion, made by a variety of glandular-type cells in the nose, sinuses, gut; typically not acidic in nature. Stomach acid is just that; made by specialized cells in the stomach. The stomach lining also secretes mucus, and has a layer for protecting stomach lining cells from acid, enzymes, and food stuff. Break in the mucus layer can lead to ulcers, not usually excess acid.

Do B complex supplements need gastric acid to be absorbed in the body or passes the stomach, without any kind of digesting?

NEED FOR B12
