Did you know that one of the underlying causes of most digestive disorders is low stomach acid!
Did you know that you are not supposed to take an antacid for more than eight weeks period?
Many people are not aware that their stomach is not making enough stomach acid, especially if they are popping antacid like candy.
Stomach acid known as hydrochloric acid (HCL) is necessary for many bodily functions especially for aid in food digestion.
Many people take an antacid to alleviate heartburn or ingestion, but what is not known in most cases by lowering the acid causes more problems in the long run. The biggest problem your body won’t be able to make enough stomach acid to do a proper job in keeping your gastrointestinal tracts healthy and support your immune system
What does HCL do –
• Breaks down food for digestion, including proteins
• Kills toxic bacteria in foods
• Kills pathogens that are ingested
• Balances the pH levels (acid/alkaline level) in the stomach
• Supports immune health in the small intestines

Protein eater – HCL activates an enzyme called pepsin so that it can digest proteins. Protein is critical for the maintenance and building blocks of every cell in including collagen, hormones, neurotransmitters, enzymes, antibodies, hair, skin nails and muscles and other bodily functions.
Love Sushi? -HCL also assists killing microorganisms that exist in the food we eat, especially if you like to eat raw food like sushi. It also prevents food from sitting and fermenting in the stomach.
