A year into the Specific Carbohydrate Diet, I’d feel good for a few days… but then I’d be stuck on the toilet again. It was SO frustrating, especially since I knew I could feel A LOT better. And I definitely wasn’t anywhere near my “feel good zone.” I was convinced my stomach was broken and wouldn’t ever work right.
So, what did I do next?
I did what any good Health Engineer would do: spend weeks researching how digestion works. And it turned out the next tweak made all the difference in the world. I started taking a supplement that finally turned my digestion around.
In fact, taking 6 of these pills with every protein heavy meal literally “fixed” my digestion. Between you and me, I don’t think I would’ve made it much longer without it. It was exactly what I needed to get over those miserable OFF days. As it turned out, it had everything to do with stomach acid.
Did You Know Stomach Acid Is Good for You?
Thanks to our current society, most of us have horrible stomach acid production and that means a “broken” digestive process.
Things like stress, processed junk food, and the rampant use of Proton-Pump Inhibitors (Prilosec), antacids, NSAIDs, inflammation, and autoimmunity create a recipe for low stomach acid…
… without it, you’ll never absorb nutrients like B12, iron, copper, zinc, folic acid, and calcium.
… without it, your immune system will constantly fight pathogens your stomach acid was supposed to kill.
… without it, you’ll never get rid of painful stomach problems.
In fact, if you’re struggling to digest meat (especially red meat), or suffering from gas, bloating, and GERD, you most likely have low stomach acid. Stomach acid is the 1st step in the delicate ballet of digestion, so it’s very important to get it right or the whole process will be “broken.”
