Data samples have shown that more than half of the American population over fifty years of age is chronically under-producing hydrocholoric acid, which can lead to various digestive and immune system troubles. But you don’t have to be over 50 to experience these issues. These days, it is becoming more common to see this problem in the younger population. The cause of this epidemic is the standard American diet, which does not promote healthy digestion. This diet is demineralized and lacks essential nutrients that we need to keep our bodies functioning properly. Surprisingly, an excessively low salt intake can also contribute to low stomach acid.
Although many cases of inadequate stomach acid production are misdiagnosed, it shouldn’t be that surprising: the symptoms of over and under production are the same. This is why it is crucial to visit a nutritionist for testing to determine whether you’re suffering from over or under production of these essential stomach acids.
What is Hydrochloric Acid?
Hydrochloric acid is naturally produced in the body to serve various functions. Some of its most important functions are breaking down proteins and preparing them for assimilation, acting as a barrier to kill potentially harmful micro-organisms, and acting as a venting mechanism for the excessive build-up of hydrogen ions in the blood and interstitial fluids. After the hydrochloric acid is combined with food, it flows down the alimentary canal and gets alkalized by pancreatic secretions.
How HCI by Premier Research Labs Can Help
If you’re experiencing the symptoms of low stomach acid (indigestion, gas, acne, food allergies, chronic fatigue), the first thing you should do is get tested by a healthcare practitioner. Because the symptoms of low stomach acid are identical to the opposite problem of excess stomach acid, you must be sure which problem you’re dealing with.
Once you’ve determined that your problem is indeed low stomach acid, supplementing with HCI can help increase your hydrochloric acid levels, which can help you digest food properly, absorb nutrients from your food and avoid the uncomfortable symptoms that come along with this condition. In addition to taking Premier Research Lab’s HCI supplement, you should also make an effort to reduce sugar and processed foods – both can diminish the body’s hydrochloric acid. You may also consider adding fermented foods, which can aid with digestion.
