Though most assume that heartburn and acid reflux are a result of too much stomach acid, these are actually symptoms of low stomach acid. One of the low stomach acid symptoms is heartburn and acid reflux.It is counterintuitive because acid reflux can allow the acid to irritate your esophagus and throat. However, the valve between your esophagus and stomach closes in response to enough acidity levels in the stomach.If the valve doesn’t close properly, you have insufficient stomach acid production.
Unfortunately, most people reach for antacids or stomach acid-blocking drugs, which further reduce stomach acid levels.While these drugs do curb the symptoms and allow the esophagus to heal, they do not fix the root cause of acid reflux and heartburn.Instead, they cause further problems due to low stomach acid, such as nutrient deficiencies, improper gut movement, and increased risk of foodborne illnesses.
To address the heartburn and acid reflux, it is best to figure out the root causes.Identify foods and situations that trigger the symptoms and avoid them.Then, support healthy stomach acid levels with a betaine hydrochloride supplement like HCL Breakthrough so the valve between the stomach and esophagus can work naturally.This will also prevent other long-term health risks from having no stomach acid.
Your stomach acid is critical for healthy digestion by:
Low stomach acid, which tends to happen with aging and stress, can have ripple effects throughout the digestive system and thus the body. Without enough stomach acid, it takes your body significantly more energy and enzymes to digest food.
People with low stomach acid tend to struggle with bloating, indigestion, post-meal fatigue, acid reflux and heartburn. Many also have low appetite and nutrient deficiencies. In some cases, incompletely digested proteins can contribute to leaky gut or become food allergies.
HCL Breakthrough supports healthy stomach acid levels to ensure optimal digestion and reduce digestive discomfort.
Once your food leaves the stomach, the acidity stimulates a wave-like gut movement, along with pancreatic enzyme and bile secretion. Therefore, inadequate stomach acid can cause sluggish gut movement and insufficient overall digestion, which create a perfect environment for bacteria and yeast overgrowth.
A classic symptom of slow gut movement is constipation and long transit time. Worse yet, when the yeast and bacteria ferment food in the small intestine, it can cause gas and bloating. Small intestine bacterial overgrowth (SIBO) is also associated with many chronic health conditions including fibromyalgia, anxiety and depression.
For most people, improving stomach acid with a high-quality betaine HCl supplement like HCl Breakthrough can promote healthy gut movement. However, if you may have SIBO, you’ll need to see a qualified practitioner for testing, diagnosis, and treatments. While restoring healthy stomach acid levels should be a key part of any gut healing protocol, HCL Breakthrough is not FDA approved to treat or diagnose any disease.
Stomach acid is important for the absorption of essential minerals including iron, calcium, zinc, magnesium, zinc, copper, and manganese. It also activates intrinsic factor, which is necessary for vitamin B12 absorption.
People with inadequate stomach acid often become deficient in these minerals, which may manifest as iron-deficiency anemia, reduced bone density, and weakened immune system. You can supplement with these minerals but if you can’t absorb them, you’ll be wasting money on the mineral supplements.
By supporting healthy stomach acid levels, HCL Breakthrough can help improve the absorption of these key minerals and vitamin B12. Many of our users find it helpful to add HCL Breakthrough along with high-iron foods and supplements to increase their iron levels.
Gastric acid secretion plays a key role in helping to denature proteins, which open up their chemical structure and make them more easily accessible to enzymes. Also, inside the stomach, the acid activates digestive enzymes including pepsin and rennin. The lack of stomach acid can reduce these steps, leading to poor protein digestion.
Many people with low stomach acid feel stomach heaviness or are tired after meals. They may also struggle to build muscles because they cannot effectively digest and absorb proteins.
Restoring stomach acid with HCL Breakthrough can ensure healthy protein digestion, which will relieve post-meal fatigue and heaviness. If you are working to gain muscles, you may also get better results by adding HCL Breakthrough.
One of the critical roles your stomach acid plays is to sterilize your stomach content. The acidity kills most yeast, bad bacteria, and parasites, which are opportunistic infections. Low stomach acid leaves the door wide open for these infections, which may increase your risk of food-borne illnesses and chronic gut infections.
By increasing stomach acidity, HCL Breakthrough improves your stomach’s natural ability to kill these infections before they take hold in your body.
Betaine is a B-vitamin found in high concentration in beets. Betaine hydrochloride (HCl) is a salt of betaine and HCL. Once in the stomach, it releases the hydrochloric acid, which is the same as your stomach acid.
In a clinical study of healthy volunteers, betaine HCL supplements effectively reduced stomach pH by about 4.5 within about 30 minutes.
Most people can use some stomach acid support because stress and aging reduces stomach acid. If you experience indigestion, acid reflux, GERD, stomach discomfort, or feeling fatigue after meals, regular use of betaine HCL with meals may provide some relief. Also, if you are low in some minerals or vitamin B12, it is a good idea to support your stomach acid levels with betaine HCL.
Your stomach naturally releases stomach acid about 30 minutes into your meal. It is, therefore, best to take HCL Breakthrough with food.
HCL Breakthrough Questions:
The only sources of pepsin available are from the stomachs of animals, such as pigs or cows. Some people are allergic to pork or beef, or have dietary restrictions that don't allow these foods.
People with low stomach acid are more likely to develop acid reflux or stomach ulcers. Among these people, the damage to the mucosa and stomach lining are caused by pepsin more than the stomach acid itself [R]. Therefore, we chose another form of plant-based proteases instead.
Nowadays, most people suffer from low stomach acid and suboptimal digestion due to:
Other than digestion, stomach acid is important for sterilizing your foods before it reaches further stages of your stomach. Also, the acidity triggers the secretions of digestive enzymes and bile, and wave-like gut movement that moves your food along. Having low stomach acid can result in overall poor digestion and gut movement, and possibly overgrowth of gut pathogens.
HCL Breakthrough can increase stomach acid and jumpstart more natural HCL production. It also contains a comprehensive combination of digestive enzymes to further help optimize digestion. The benefits of HCL Breakthrough include:
People with low stomach acid tend to have some nutrient deficiencies and digestion symptoms. For example, they may feel a heavy sensation in their stomach and bloating, especially after meat-heavy meals.
You should start from 1 capsule and gradually increase the dosage until you start to feel your digestive symptoms improve, as long as you don’t experience any negative symptoms.
Once you reach your optimal dose, you will immediately experience:
Within a few weeks, you may observe the improvement in your nutrification (nutrient absorption and assimilation), even though you’re eating the exact same food. For example, you may feel more energy as you absorb more iron. Or you may get better gains with your muscle mass from improved protein digestion.
HCL Breakthrough is not recommended for children.
HCL can be corrosive to teeth and irritate sensitive tissue. Therefore, HCL Breakthrough capsules should not be dissolved in beverages.
The recommended dosage for HCL Breakthrough is 1 capsule with each meal or within 30 minutes of eating a meal. Dosage information can be found on the bottle’s label.
Consult your medical practitioner prior to starting any new supplement, especially if you have a medical condition.
The optimal time to take HCL Breakthrough is 30 minutes after your meal.
Taking HCL Breakthrough before a meal may turn off stomach acid production for this meal as it may create a false experience of heartburn.
Store HCL Breakthrough in a cool and dry place.
HCL Breakthrough bottles contain 90 capsules.
Do not use if ulcer or gastritis are present.
