Heartburn is often caused by stomach acid that is TOO LOW… NOT too high. Many people are shocked when they hear this, but it’s absolutely true. Low stomach acid leads to a whole host of digestive issues that cause inflammation, swelling, and fluid retention in the stomach and digestive tract. H. Pylori infection and SIBO are highly opportunistic and thrive in low acid environments. These and other infections that crop up when stomach acid is too low aggravate all of this inflammation. Inflamed tissues swelling even just a little cause a build up of intra-abdominal pressure (IAP) over the long term. This pressure build up impact tissues such as your hiatal sphincter as well as your esophagus, which leads to stomach acid being able to navigate into the esophagus causing pain and discomfort. My HCL formula contains Betaine Hydrochloride which supports optimal gastric acidity. Betaine, an amino acid, is a derivative of choline, a vital micronutrient. I combined betaine with hydrochloride in order to create the perfect PH optimizer for your stomach. My HCL formula adds just the right amount of acid to the stomach’s gastric juices in order to support optimal digestion, mineral absorption, enzyme activation, and microbe balance. Minerals like iron, calcium, and magnesium need optimal stomach acid to be absorbed! That’s right, in the foods we eat and the supplements we take, iron, calcium, magnesium, and other minerals are bound to other molecules, such as organic acids, or amino acids. The bonds between the atomic mineral itself, and the acid it’s bound to need to be broken down, or ‘cleaved’ by our gastric juices. Without the correct PH and right amount of stomach acid, those bonds cannot be broken down and mineral absorption plummets, leading to essential mineral insufficiencies.
- MAINTAINS HEALTHY GASROINTESTINAL MICROBE BALANCE AND IMMUNITY: Stomach acid is your intestines’ first line of defense against invaders! When stomach acid is too low, ingested viruses, molds, undesirable bacteria, and even parasites can survive passage into the small intestine, large intestine, and colon. Supplementing with HCL helps fortify your gastric juices with the acid it needs in order to reach the proper PH to be able to provide an inhospitable environment.
- CONTAINS BETAINE HYDROCHLORIDE WHICH SUPPORTS OPTIMAL GASTRIC ACIDITY: Betaine, an amino acid, is a derivative of choline, a vital micronutrient. I combined betaine with hydrochloride in order to create the perfect PH optimizer for your stomach. Adds just the right amount of acid to the stomach’s gastric juices in order to support optimal digestion, mineral absorption, enzyme activation, and microbe balance.
- HELPS ALLEVIATE FOOD SENSITIVITES: When stomach acid is low, bacteria, yeast, parasites and even undigested proteins can damage the intestinal barrier. This leads to increased intestinal permeability which can lead to food sensitivities, and ultimately, autoimmunity. HCL promotes the proper PH in the stomach and small intestine to support proper digestion of potentially inflammatory proteins as well as creates an inhospitable environment for would be opportunistic microorganisms.
- ASSISTS IN THE BREAKDOWN OF PROTEIN INTO CONSTITUENT AMINO ACIDS: HCL is the perfect digestive aid for anyone who is concerned about leaky gut, is wanting to support normal esophagus, stomach, and small intestine PH, wants to support optimal microbial balance in the stomach and small intestine, needs additional digestive support, needs additional support absorbing dietary minerals or is dealing with gas, bloating, and weak digestion.
