Good health depends on adequate digestion. From a nutritional point of view, the level or quality of health can be traced to the level of digestive functioning.
The stomach produces a variety of substances that promote digestion and assimilation; gastric juice contains hydrochloric acid and pepsinogens (precursors of the family of proteolytic enzymes called pepsins). Parietal cells produce both stomach acid and intrinsic factor, a protein required to bind vitamin B12 prior to its absorption in the small intestine.
Inadequate production of hydrochloric acid can result in impaired uptake or deficiency of all B-vitamins, especially B12, potentially leading to muscle weakness and neurological deficit.
WHY SUPPLEMENT WITH HCL PLUS?
While impaired digestion may result from mechanical means, such as improperly chewed food, it is far more likely to be the result of poor diet, nutritional deficiency (as a direct result of antacids and similar medications), or inadequate HCl production.
Compounding this decline, the incidence of low stomach acid increases with age. Studies estimate it impacts 30-60% of people over the age of 50.
Functional deficits of HCl have been associated with gas, bloating, indigestion, malodorous breath and sweat excretions, anaemias resulting from nutrient deficiency, leaky gut, food allergies, joint inflammation, hair loss, and environmental sensitivities.
