Low Stomach Acid Contributes to Heartburn, Dysbiosis, & Other Gut Issues

Heartburn is often caused by stomach acid that is TOO LOW… NOT too high. Many people are shocked when they hear this, but it’s absolutely true. Low stomach acid leads to a whole host of digestive issues that cause inflammation, swelling, and fluid retention in the stomach and digestive tract. pH, Pylori infection, and SIBO are highly opportunistic and thrive in low acid environments. These and other infections that crop up when stomach acid is too low aggravate all of this inflammation. Inflamed tissue swelling even just a little cause a build-up of intra-abdominal pressure (IAP) over the long term. This pressure build-up impacts tissues such as your hiatal sphincter as well as your esophagus, which leads to stomach acid being able to navigate into the esophagus causing pain and discomfort.

HCL With Betaine Hydrochloride Supports Optimal Gastric Acid Balance

My HCL formula contains Betaine Hydrochloride which supports optimal gastric acidity. Betaine, an amino acid, is a derivative of choline, a vital micronutrient. Amy combined betaine with hydrochloride in order to create the perfect PH optimizer for your stomach. My HCL formula adds just the right amount of acid to the stomach’s gastric juices in order to support optimal digestion, mineral absorption, enzyme activation, and microbe balance.

Stomach Acid pH Balance Enables Nutrient Absorption

Minerals like iron, calcium, and magnesium need optimal stomach acid to be absorbed! That’s right, in the foods we eat and the supplements we take, iron, calcium, magnesium, and other minerals are bound to other molecules, such as organic acids, or amino acids. The bonds between the atomic mineral itself, and the acid it’s bound to need to be broken down, or ‘cleaved’ by our gastric juices. Without the correct PH and right amount of stomach acid, those bonds cannot be broken down and mineral absorption plummets, leading to essential mineral insufficiencies.

HCL With Betaine Hydrochloride Supports Your Immune System’s First Line of Defence

HCL supports healthy gastrointestinal microbe balance and immunity. Stomach acid is your intestines’ first line of defense against invaders! When stomach acid is too low, ingested viruses, molds, undesirable bacteria, and even parasites can survive passage into the small intestine, large intestine, and colon. There, these opportunistic microorganisms are free to cause all manner of health problems from dysbiosis and SIBO, to candida and parasitic infection. Supplementing with HCL helps fortify your gastric juices with the acid it needs in order to reach the proper PH to be able to provide an inhospitable environment to these would-be commensal invaders.

Betaine HCL Can Help You Repair Leaky Gut

Do you have food sensitivities? We'd venture to guess that if you’re reading this, you’re dealing with one or more food sensitivities now, or have dealt with them in the past. Oftentimes, food sensitivities are the result of leaky gut, which can actually be proliferated by a lack of stomach acid! When stomach acid is low, bacteria, yeast, parasites, and even undigested proteins can damage the intestinal barrier. This leads to increased intestinal permeability which can lead to food sensitivities, and ultimately, autoimmunity. HCL promotes the proper PH in the stomach and small intestine to support proper digestion of potentially inflammatory proteins as well as creates an inhospitable environment for would-be opportunistic microorganisms.

Who Should Take HCL With Betaine Hydrochloride

HCL is the perfect digestive aid for anyone who:

  • Is concerned about leaky gut
  • Is wanting to support normal esophagus, stomach, and small intestine PH
  • Wants to support optimal microbial balance in the stomach and small intestine
  • Needs additional digestive support
  • Needs additional support absorbing dietary minerals


  • Is dealing with gas, bloating, and weak digestion
