IndigestionSTOP | Natural Digestive Enzyme Support

Indigestion with its varied symptoms is no joke, and yet the underlying issue in many cases is a simple case of low digestive enzymes and low HCl production. We have long been taught that high stomach acid (HCl) levels produce the burning, acid, bloating, belching, gas, and gastric distress symptoms we associate with indigestion. Experts have found, however, that both low levels of HCl and high levels of HCl produce the same indigestion symptoms and that 30-50% of people over the age of 60 don’t produce enough stomach acid.

What does this mean? It means that all the acid suppressants we take may not be addressing the underlying indigestion issue for many of us. As we age, our stomach acid levels decrease. Is it any coincidence, then, that our baby boomer and elderly populations are far more likely to battle indigestion on a regular basis?

What’s Happening in Your Stomach

Acid indigestion happens when the lower esophageal sphincter (LES) stays open as food is eaten, allowing stomach contents and acid to flow up into the esophagus. There are many triggers for this issue including:

  • Overeating or eating too fast
  • Inadequate chewing, swallowing air
  • Stress
  • Obesity
  • Alcohol and smoking
  • Fatty, sugary, fried foods
  • Spicy foods, chocolate, tomato-based foods
  • Hormone medications
  • NSAIDS, iron salts, potassium chloride
  • Food allergies
  • Digestive enzyme deficiencies

Besides the common heartburn and reflux symptoms that often come with indigestion, less distinguishable symptoms also point to acid indigestion:

  • Chest pain/shortness of breath
  • Difficulty swallowing/hoarseness
  • Excessive fullness after eating, especially in conjunction with a chronic cough
  • Abdominal swelling after meals
  • Sore throat/nausea
  • Bad breath

It’s important to determine whether you are producing too much HCl or too little. A doctor can do a gastric analysis to find this out. If the answer is too little, a condition that causes the same burning acid indigestion symptoms as too much HCl production, then supplementation with digestive enzymes can be very helpful to address the underlying deficiency. ǂ

Digestive Enzymes in Your Supplement

A full-spectrum supplement like IndigestionSTOP tackles indigestion with a variety of ingredients that are targeted at the specific issues associated with indigestion. These ingredients are completely natural and are not buffered with any extra ingredients or additives that can further aggravate indigestion.

  • Betaine Hydrochloride (HCl) – a natural acid that boosts stomach acid levels for more complete digestion. ǂ This ingredient will not aggravate acid issues if your stomach acid levels are too low but rather address them at their source and help with the initial breakdown of food into macronutrients. ǂ
  • Plant-based digestive enzymes – these enzymes include protease, amylase, lipase, and cellulase to help you break down proteins, carbs, fats, and vegetables/fruits. ǂ They are activated in the small intestine, the area that takes the stomach’s macronutrients and further breaks them down so they can be absorbed through the intestinal walls for nourishment. Like HCl production, our levels of digestive enzymes produced by the pancreas reduce with age. We also don’t tend to eat enough raw fruits and veggies, our primary source of dietary digestive enzymes, to help us break down our food properly. Low levels of digestive enzymes while we eat contributes to indigestion, slow digestive transit time, and an irritated “leaky” intestinal lining that is allowing too-large undigested particles to pass through and activate inflammation in the body.
  • Natural soothing herbs – these include gentian root, ginger, meadowsweet, and peppermint that help soothe nausea, stomach upset, and sour stomach. ǂ This blend has a settling effect on the stomach and also soothes the intestinal lining. ǂ

How to take IndigestionSTOP
IndigestionSTOP offers several important digestive benefits:

  • Helps break down food in the stomach by boosting HCl levels for more thorough, contained digestion ǂ
  • Supports further nutrient breakdown and nutrient absorption in the small intestine ǂ
  • Promotes a settled, soothed stomach and digestive environment to help relieve indigestion with select herbal extracts ǂ

This product is formulated to stop indigestion before it starts. ǂ It’s recommended that you take two capsules with a meal before indigestion symptoms begin. Avoid trigger foods and limit your fluid (water) intake with meals to prevent stomach acid dilution. Otherwise, drink plenty of water between meals and begin introducing more fiber/whole foods to your diet.
