There are two functional causes for heartburn, gerds, indigestion and stomach bloating that need to be talked about in more detail. Your problems can stem from either a lack of enzymes or a lack of proper gastric stomach acid. Here’s a good way to know which one you may be deficient in.
If you have heartburn, stomach acid reflux, abdominal bloating, stomach discomfort and gas that occur within the first 15 to 30 minutes after you eat, the cause is likely low gastric stomach acid secretions. If these affects happen after 45 minutes, the cause could be a lack of sufficient enzymes.
Gastric stomach acid or hydrochloric acid (HCL), can be taken as a supplement at mealtime. Begin slowly with about 600 mg. at one of your large meals. If it does not aggravate your symptoms, take 2 at the next large meal and so on until you feel a warmth in your stomach. At that point you know you can back off one tablet and know that whatever dose your at, will be correct for you. Of course take smaller doses at smaller meals.
You can also try digestive enzymes. These actually help a lot of people since most foods we eat are cooked and the enzymes are destroyed at any temperature over 120 degrees. Digestive enzymes are best taken from multi-enzyme vegetarian sources. Look for supplements that contain bomelain and papaya these are protein digesting enzymes. Follow the label for correct dosage.
