Hydrochloric Acid Needed for Protein Digestion
The production of hydrochloric acid (HCL) is usually impaired in those with gut imbalance. Often we think acid reflux or GERD is due to too much acid in the stomach, but it is often a need for more. When the body does not have enough HCL to digest, (especially proteins), the result can be that burning sensation in your chest and throat. Supplements can help.
Take one or more pills, depending on the size of the meal, just prior to eating. HCL can be very helpful while the gut is healing to assist in the digestion of proteins. I like the products Metagest by Metagenics, and GastroDigest II by Vervita because one pill has broad spectrum enzymes, hydrochloric acid, pepsin and more. It is a small pill that can be crushed with a pill crusher and added to any food or beverage, www.vervitaproducts.com.
