HCl, a Natural Remedy for Heartburn?
Hydrochloric acid (HCl) is the acid produced in the stomach. When this acid washes into the esophagus, a person experiences heartburn. Hydrochloric acid plays a crucial role in digesting animal proteins, yet hydrochloric acid levels can become deficient with factors such as age, stress, smoking and poor diet.à HCl is responsible for unwinding protein and activating pepsin, a powerful protein-digesting enzyme made in the stomach. When levels of hydrochloric acid are deficient, a person may be unable to thoroughly digest protein and may experience heartburn.à
The HCl in Heartburn Prevention provides a missing component for proper digestion and stomach function in individuals who produce too little stomach acid.à In addition to HCl, Heartburn Prevention contains the enzymes protease, amylase and lipase to aid in the digestion of protein, carbohydrates and fats, which can be difficult to digest for many people.à
Heartburn Prevention is an advanced digestive enzyme supplement formulated for the prevention of occasional heartburn and contains betaine hydrochloride from beets and 3 plant-based digestive enzymes. Heartburn Prevention can be taken by anyone who experiences occasional heartburn or eats a high-protein diet.à
