Secret Ingredient for Digestion & Detoxification
Betaine Hydrochloride – Endocrine Boost Supplement
Within the United States, the market share for over the counter (OTC) gastrointestinal products is in the billions of dollars. Coupled with an American fetish for eating unhealthy foods, more gastrointestinal products will continue to be released and prescribed, continuing to drive the market share upward. This has become a highly profitable trend for pharmaceutical companies and it is extremely easy to understand why: We have been taught to assume that virtually all stomach problems can be treated by an antacid – but what if this only further compounds the problem?
Symptoms of an over-production of stomach acid and an under-production of stomach acid are almost identical, yet again we see a “one size fits all” approach to stomach health. If we are failing to digest foods properly, it would behoove us to fix the problem rather than simply treat the symptoms. For this reason, betaine hydrochloride may be beneficial to aiding digestion and our overall health.
Hydrochloric acid has many functions, including as the primary digestive juice responsible for breaking down proteins so these may be assimilated by the body. Betaine hydrochloride (betaine HCL) helps the body to break down the fats and proteins from the foods we eat. It therefore has an essential function for metabolizing food and assimilating nutrients, such as protein, vitamins, calcium and iron. Those without adequate hydrochloric acid may have a harder time getting the necessary nutrients from their diets. While a healthier diet is always beneficial, this may not be enough if we already are having chronic problems from years of poor nutrition or poor absorption of nutrients. Betaine HCL would greatly improve the health of those who otherwise cannot properly metabolize foods.
In addition to aiding digestion, betaine hydrochloride also has certain detoxification properties. Studies have shown that betaine HCL may benefit those suffering from hypochlorhydria, which is a deficiency of acid production in the stomach. As healthy stomachs should produce enough acid to kill bacterial and parasitic infections, those suffering from these ailments may actually have hypochlorhydria. Unfortunately, if they are complaining about stomach pain, they will likely be given antacids which will only worsen this problem.
Problems with low stomach acid seem to increase with age. Studies have shown that half of those over the age of 60 do not produce enough stomach acid. Anyone who chronically suffers from cycles of diarrhea and/or constipation, acid reflux, belching after meals, feeling bloated after meals, flatulence or multiple food allergies may be having problems with hypochlorhydria. Other chronic conditions may result from this, including autoimmune disorders and thyroid disorders. Those who are not able to properly metabolize food might also have increased problems related to type 2 diabetes and blood glucose maintenance. Treating these other ailments may only be treating symptoms of a larger disorder. We cannot be healthy if we do not have a healthy digestive tract.
Anyone suffering from type 2 diabetes, prediabetes or insulin resistance will particularly benefit from a healthy digestive tract, lest these conditions worsen. Amino Diet has taken this all into consideration, which is why betaine HCL is a fundamental part of our Endocrine Boost supplement. Digestive health is a fundamental cornerstone for wellness, yet this is often overlooked as symptoms related to poor digestive health are treated, ignoring the cause. This is one key approach to a comprehensive system of health and wellness, which aims to heal the entire body and is part of our commitment to you: You are seen as an entire person rather than a collection of symptoms. Each ingredient in this supplement and each step of the Amino Diet Diabetic Program are clinically designed so our customers can achieve the total wellness they seek.
