Re: --Clarification and correction Answer--

Your stomach makes HCl to allow optimal conditions for the enzymes that initiate digestion, then the stuff hits the small intestine where HC03- is secreted to alkalinize the mixture so that other enzymes that further digest the nutrients can function optimally. It isn't the acid or base per se that eats up stuff, it's the enzymes. They need basic conditions to break down yeah, but the basic conditions don't break them down.
