All these factors increase the secretion of Hydrochloric acid which is the important component of digestive juices leading to Acidity.
The stomach and some other inner organs which take part in breaking down the food secrete different ferments and hydrochloric acid. Although necessary, the stomach must also be protected from these ferments and acid. If the acid due to the temporary weakness in the normal sphincter mechanism enters the lower part of the Oesophagus it may lead to heartburn. Ulcers can occur if there is an imbalance between the different protecting stomach factors and the stomach juices which help to digest the food. Duodenal ulcers are much more common than gastric, because the first ones arise in the lining of the upper part of the small intestine, and gastric ulcers occur in the stomach.
