Hydrochloric acid is stomach acid and it helps you digest food, especially fats and proteins. You need adequate hydrochloric acid to absorb protein, calcium, vitamin B12 and iron. But that’s not all.
Hydrochloric acid suppresses the growth of ingested bacteria, thereby limiting bacterial counts in the upper small intestine. Diminished acid production (hypochlorhydria) is a risk factor for SIBO, and can develop after colonization with Helicobacter pylori.(2)
Premier HCL is derived from pine bark and made with 100% solvent-free vegetable capsules, excipient-free: no binders, fillers, glues or other toxic tagalongs. No animal testing. We love our fuzzy friends!
Insufficient digestive enzymes can also cause SIBO. Just like hydrochloric acid, digestive enzyme production decreases with age. By 70 years old, you produce only about 30% of the enzymes you need to properly digest your food. Yikes! This is a serious problem. For this reason, I take digestive enzymes, Premier Digest, before I eat especially cooked foods or in restaurants.
Premier Digest is a plant source broad spectrum digestive enzyme formula that is derived using a proprietary Japanese fermentation process. It supports key digestive needs such as fat, protein, starch, lactose, sugar, and fiber.
Another enzyme formula that I love which targets the stomach in a slightly different way, GastroVen, is a great addition to your digestive improvement arsenal.
GastroVen is a stomach centered digestive formula delivering a broad range of digestive agents, specifically high potency proteolytic enzymes.
GastroVen contains beyond organic grade 10 herbs:
Premier Neuroven is support for the entire neurological system. It contains phospholipids which are important for the construction of cell membranes, nervonic acid that’s a vital nutrient for brain development, L-carnosine which promotes nerve growth, and more.
Asta-Complete- FX contains astaxanthin, a natural algae extract that is a potent carotenoid antioxidant which helps neutralize free radicals. It can cross the blood-brain barrier and protect the brain and nervous system. Interestingly, astaxanthin does not oxidize after it does its job.
Nearly 200 scientific studies have documented the amazing immune and antioxidant properties of curcuminoids. Curcumin in turmeric has many protective functions: counters advanced glycation end products, cholesterol oxidation, central nervous system inflammation, and quenches a broad range of free radicals. Premier Turmeric helps promote healthy digestion, peristalsis, and decreases gas.
CoQ10 is known as coenzyme Q10 or vitamin Q. It is a powerful antioxidant that helps protect the body from free radicals. Vitamin Q plays a vital role in energy production. It protects dopamine producing neurons and defends against mitochondrial damage from excitotoxin exposure.
DHA is a key Omega 3 fatty acid known as docosahexanoic acid. It supports the brain, nerves, eyes (extensions of the brain :), and heart. It’s helpful and vital for coordination, learning, memory, and healthy moods. DHA protects from neurodegeneration and is recommended to be taken with an effective antioxidant (like the ones mentioned above). This DHA is derived from marine algae rather than fish.
Max B is a vitamin B super hero. Max B is derived using probiotic bacteria to produce natural vitamin Bs in their potent end chain coenzyme forms. Vitamin B blocks glutamate toxicity, decreases homocysteine levels, and boosts mitochondrial energy. It supports mood, the proper development of the nervous system and brain, and has powerful anti-stress effects.
HCL helps not only absorb protein, calcium, vitamin B12, and iron, avoid gas, bloating, and acid reflux (because you are digesting instead of fermenting food), suppress growth of ingested bacteria and candida it also helps avoid brain-gut mood imbalances according to studies conducted in Japan.
DHA aka docosahexaenoic acid is a key Omega 3 fatty acid that is important for the brain, nervous system, eyes, and the list goes on. This DHA is a plant source derived from non-GMO micro-algae so it is free from heavy metals or other potential pollutants found in fish oil.
Adaptogen-R3 contains digestive enzymes protease, amylase, lipase, and others along with turmeric and noni that studies have shown is wonderful for both the guts and the brain. But wait there’s more. Adaptogen-R3 also supports the body in times of stress with powerful ingredients like rhodiola rosea, ashwaganda, ginseng, prickly pear, and others.
