DigestMORE HCl is a comprehensive digestive enzyme formula that contains Betaine Hydrochloride (HCl) and butyric acid. DigestMORE HCl is helpful for those who suffer from heartburn caused by low stomach acid. A majority of people with heartburn do not produce enough stomach acid. Normally, the stomach is a sterile environment due to its acidic nature.
If there is a lack of hydrochloric acid (HCl) in the stomach, it is no longer a sterile environment and bacteria are able to proliferate. These bacteria will putrefy food in the stomach, releasing volatile fatty acids and gases. These gases cause bloating after meals, and it is these volatile fatty acids and stomach acid being forced up into the esophagus that causes heartburn. By ensuring adequate levels of hydrochloric acid in the stomach, especially at meal times, the underlying cause of most heartburn can be addressed.
The long term solution for eliminating heartburn (in those who do not produce enough stomach acid) is to ensure that the stomach is a sterile environment and to ensure food is easily broken down.
- Relieves heartburn after any sized meal
