Premier HCL (hydrochloric acid) by Premier Research Labs provides superior digestive support and promotes whole body detox with live-source‚ beet-derived betaine hydrochloric acid. It is also designed to help the body absorb nutrients‚ especially calcium‚ phosphorous‚ protein‚ B12 and iron.

HCL and Stomach Acid Production

Often‚ people who are suffering from indigestion‚ heartburn‚ gas or acid reflux think they are experiencing symptoms caused by the overproduction of stomach acid: But‚ the opposite is usually true. This misconception has been reinforced by those who prescribe acid-blocking medications whenever anyone experiences the slightest stomach discomfort.

Data samples have shown that more than half of the American population over fifty years of age is chronically under-producing hydrocholoric acid‚ which can lead to various digestive and immune system troubles. But you don’t have to be over 50 to experience these issues. These days‚ it is becoming more common to see this problem in the younger population. The cause of this epidemic is the standard American diet‚ which does not promote healthy digestion. This diet is demineralized and lacks essential nutrients that we need to keep our bodies functioning properly. Surprisingly‚ an excessively low salt intake can also contribute to low stomach acid.

Although many cases of inadequate stomach acid production are misdiagnosed‚ it shouldn’t be that surprising: the symptoms of over and under production are the same. This is why it is crucial to visit the doctor for testing to determine whether you’re suffering from over or under production of these essential stomach acids.

What is Hydrochloric Acid?

Hydrochloric acid is naturally produced in the body to serve various functions. Some of its most important functions are breaking down proteins and preparing them for assimilation‚ acting as a barrier to kill potentially harmful micro-organisms‚ and acting as a venting mechanism for the excessive build-up of hydrogen ions in the blood and interstitial fluids. After the hydrochloric acid is combined with food‚ it flows down the alimentary canal and gets alkalized by pancreatic secretions.

How HCI by Premier Research Labs Can Help

If you’re experiencing the symptoms of low stomach acid (indigestion‚ gas‚ acne‚ food allergies‚ chronic fatigue)‚ the first thing you should do is get tested by a healthcare practitioner. Because the symptoms of low stomach acid are identical to the opposite problem of excess stomach acid‚ you must be sure which problem you’re dealing with.

Once you’ve determined that your problem is indeed low stomach acid‚ supplementing with HCI can help increase your hydrochloric acid levels‚ which can help you digest food properly‚ absorb nutrients from your food and avoid the uncomfortable symptoms that come along with this condition. In addition to taking Premier Research Lab’s HCI supplement‚ you should also make an effort to reduce sugar and processed foods – both can diminish the body’s hydrochloric acid. You may also consider adding fermented foods‚ which can aid with digestion.

      After trying meds that specialist had me on that didn't help and caused other problems, I did research and decided to try taking HCL, 1 capsule after each meal and that helped so much. I had already been taking digestive enzymes that my naturopathic dr recommended that is also really important. I use either Similase Sensitive Enzymes or GB Digestive Enzymes, depending on what I eat. Taking 2 before a meal. Really important what one eats and how much at one time. Have to find what works for each person.

      Thought this was my life saver for acid reflux, it was truly amazing in the first two weeks. After the first 2 weeks I began to get stomach aches and feel nauseated all the time. When I stopped taking it, after going out of town and accidentally leaving it behind... My stomach stopped hurting and the nauseousness was gone. I had to take my prescription of pantaprontozol (unfortunately) during the trip- but at least I was able to eat and enjoy my trip.

      Pros

      The pills were small... That's about it.

      Cons

      The price is outrageous and it fooled me into believing it was working, while only setting me up for further problems

      I always mix up my digestive tonics, but always come back to this. The smell can be strong, but these are my favorite HCl capsules. Clears up the digestive tract.
