Digestive Support—For Relief of Indigestion

If you’ve tried over-the-counter products for indigestion, relief of indigestion symptoms, and heartburn, you’re probably not stopping indigestion before it starts. Most medications simply suppress or block stomach acid production—that’s what they’re designed to do. However, many people are actually battling too little stomach acid production and it is this low production that triggers their acid indigestion.

How can this be? Haven’t we always been told that acid indigestion symptom such as burning, belching, gas, bloating, and reflux are due to too much stomach acid? It turns out that the reverse is also true. Experts have found that reduced stomach acid production produces the very same acid ingestion symptoms as too much stomach acid. For people with too little stomach acid, acid blockers aren’t doing a thing for their indigestion.

Too Much or Too Little Stomach Acid?

The symptoms of low hydrochloric stomach acid (HCl) production and over production are similar. They include:

  • Stomach pain/gas
  • Nausea/vomiting
  • Heartburn/reflux
  • Bad breath/acne
  • Diarrhea/constipation
  • Loss of a taste for meat
  • Candida infections/parasites
  • Food allergies/iron deficiency
  • Bloating/distended abdomen

For those with low stomach acid, indigestion, relief of indigestion, and indigestion prevention is a matter of addressing the deficiency. A health care professional can test you to see if your levels of stomach acid are high or low. TIP: test your stomach acid levels at home with pH testing strips. Test your saliva first thing in the morning and again ½ hour after eating breakfast. You should see an increase in pH by 2 whole numbers if stomach acid levels are adequate.

Acid blocking medications reduce your production of stomach acid by inhibiting the body’s natural production of HCl. They also alkalize the stomach, which triggers the body to produce more HCl, thus requiring you to take more antacids to block the production. The indigestion cycle is not corrected but merely palliated, and acid indigestion relief happens only temporarily when acid production is blocked.

You need adequate levels of stomach acid (HCl). Besides breaking down food into chyme, HCl supports many important digestive functions including:

  • Triggering the lower esophageal sphincter to close, preventing a gurgling up of acid and stomach contents into the esophagus
  • Breaking down proteins and supporting vitamin B12 and mineral absorption
  • Sterilizing food by destroying potentially harmful bacteria and microbes
  • Signaling the pancreas to release enzymes into the small intestine for further digestion

Supplement for Indigestion, Relief of Indigestion

Betaine hydrochloride (HCl) is a natural acid taken in indigestion supplements that helps boost stomach acid action and relieve indigestion, heartburn, and bloating/gas issues. ǂ Betaine HCl helps to destroy bacteria in the stomach, helps to break down food in the stomach, and helps to offset reflux, acid indigestion, and heartburn issues by supporting healthy levels of stomach acid instead of blocking it. ǂ The issue for many people is not an over production of stomach acid but inefficient digestion in the stomach that triggers their indigestion.

Supplementing with betaine HCl is not enough, however. IndigestionSTOP is a natural supplement containing HCl plus added plant enzymes to support proper digestion below the stomach, in the small intestine. A stressed digestive tract prone to indigestion puts a lot of strain on the pancreas, which produces digestive enzymes. By supplementing with plant enzymes, you can help ensure that the body is getting enough enzymes to finish nutrient breakdown in the small intestine so maximum absorption can happen. ǂ

Look for these plant enzymes in your indigestion supplement:

  • High levels of protease for protein digestion
  • Lipase for important fat digestion
  • Amylase for carbohydrate digestion
  • Cellulase to support healthy blood glucose levels

IndigestionSTOP also contains herbs that support a healthy intestinal lining and that soothe/settle the stomach. Nausea, sour stomach, gas, and bloating are some of the most uncomfortable symptoms of indigestion. Herbs such as ginger, peppermint, meadowsweet, and gentian root all help alleviate stomach and intestinal upset. ǂ

Tips to STOP indigestion
Incorporate these indigestion, relief of indigestion tips into your daily routine:

  • Supplement with betaine HCl, digestive plant enzymes, and soothing herbs.
  • Reduce stress when eating by not eating in a state of anxiety, sitting down to eat (not in a car), and taking enough time for a meal.
  • Chew each bite at least 20 times to begin food breakdown and carbohydrate digestion in the mouth. This takes a great burden off the stomach.
  • Reduce liquid consumption during meals to a small glass of room temperature water or tea. Excess liquid consumption dilutes stomach acid and cold beverages put added stress on the digestive tract.
  • Pay attention to food combinations. Fruit should always be eaten alone. Do not combine protein-heavy portions with starchy carbohydrates as this slows down digestion. Avoid trigger foods such as chocolate, diary, caffeine, and spicy foods if they exacerbate indigestion.
  • Avoid overeating, even of “healthy” foods
