Stomach secretions are made up ofhydrochloric acid, several enzymes, and a mucus coating that protects the lining of yourstomachHydrochloric acid helps your body to break down, digest, and absorb nutrients such as protein. It also eliminates bacteria and viruses in the stomach, protecting your body from infection.
