· Infrequent and moderate consumption of alcohol stimulates gastric acid secretion, while higher doses inhibit it. Inhibited gastric acid secretion will result in poor digestion and lead to GERD amongst other problems. Chronic alcohol consumption also causes inflammation throughout the digestive tract, specifically to the gastric mucusal layer. Alcohol is a stressor, which as we discussed earlier can elicit a stress response that will decrease motility in the intestines. Decreased digestive motility equates to a longer transit time, allowing for bacterial overgrowth which may cause gas and abdominal discomfort.
