Not enough stomach acid? Malabsorption issues?
June 21, 2019 Report
You might not be producing enough stomach acid. I've had malabsorption issues throughout my life. I found myself feeling quite fatigued several times and always feeling so full for a long time after I would eat. I would tend to become low on iron alot of times as well.
Hmmm. Finally discovered I actually have low stomach acid. I did go to a Naturpath myself and I never recommend people diagnose themselves. I started taking 1 capsule of Douglas Labs Betaine Plus before every meal and am not feeling like my food is just sitting there churning for hours. It definitely helps with my digestion issues.
It contains 645 mg of Betain Hydrochloride and 140 mg of Pepsin. We need sufficient hydrochloric acid in order to break down our foods properly and the pepsin helps breakdown protein.
If you have been diagnosed with underactive stomach, Douglas Labs Betaine Plus capsules might be something you might want to try! The capsules are vegetarian and easy to swallow.
