New To Keto But Want To Grow Your Knowledge?
More specifically, you want help with The Importance of Hydrochloric Acid (HCL)?
hey guys dr. Burke here in this video we’re going to talk about the importance of hydrochloric acid or stomach acid your stomach acid is probably one of the most important fluids in your entire body because the Cascade of a negative effects that occur without this acid are huge let’s go through each one of them so normally in your stomach you need a very very strong acid that means a low pH so one two three so it goes on a scale from 1 to 14 so one to three is very very acid so we need a very very strong acidic stomach and that’s why when people say oh yeah our bodies are supposed to be alkaline well what about the stomach they’re probably talking about the blood but your stomach needs to be very very acid now here’s the thing as you age your you lose your stomach acid okay and when you lose your stomach acid a lot of things happen in a negative way let’s just take one thing if the stomach is not acidic you will not release the main enzyme called pepsin now what is pepsin and what is an enzyme an enzyme is something called a catalyst or a thing that helps beat up a chemical reaction in the body it helps you to break things down or builds something back up so what’s interesting about enzymes is is they basically don’t necessarily get used up after they do the work they’re kind of like a self propelling energy that does all the work but doesn’t use up its energy it’s pretty wild it’s but it speeds up the chemical reaction so pepsin is a main catalyst or enzyme that breaks down protein okay so that’s what it does but it takes a pH between one two and up to three to release this enzyme so if you’re not releasing this enzyme you can’t break down protein one of the most common symptoms would be intestinal gas that’s when we know we’re not getting this release of this pepsin okay you’re also going to get bloating and other things but what happens too is that valve on top of the stomach is controlled by the pH so the valve won’t necessarily close if the pH is not strong so that’s called acid reflux you know or GERD that’s basically because your stomach is not asked enough what’s really ironic is the way they treat it is they give you an anti acid so you’re going to feel better but then you’re going to feel worse because you’re taking the acid out of the system what they should do is put more acid in there to fix it but they don’t really do that one of the challenges with having this valve not closed tightly is that the enzyme splashes up into not just the acid but the enzyme can go right up all the way up your esophagus up into your your larynx and your vocal cords and that can create chronic coughing it can create chronic hoarseness it can create like that little lump in your throat a chronic cough irritation asthma that’s because this enzyme is going right up in here and the main reason is because this is not acid enough so then it leaks up into the esophagus so that’s one symptom the three main purposes of the acid or number one to help break down proteins number to absorb minerals and number three kill off microbes so like if you see like a dog for example eat like yous like eat raw meat you know there’s microbes and bacteria and our dog has a really strong stomach acid and so that acid is just going to kill all that bacteria well we also have the acid there to kill microbes as well in case there’s so we cannot have any extra invading microbes come through the stomach so it’s if we don’t have an ambassador we get a bacterial overgrowth so you might have extra you know bacteria that shouldn’t be there and you leaky gut because undigested protein can leak through the system and create all sorts of immune reactions because then it goes through the lymphatic system in your immune system attacks it as being a foreign body and bam allergy because allergies are always two proteins right so I wonder why it starts with the stomach acid that’s why so many people if they just get the stomach right everything will do really really good and then we have Candida up see normal in your friendly stomach in your friendly bacteria in your stomach and your gut you actually have a normal Candida in there that’s supposed to be helpful to you it’s not a bad thing it’s only when it has an overgrowth if the pH is not correct if the pH is too alkaline you’ll get an overgrowth of the fungus type Candida okay so that will happen and that can happen in the mouth the vaginal area and your intestines and your toenails all over the place so that’s one thing also h pylori h pylori lives in an alkaline environment in fact it’ll it’ll even alkalis your stomach to live it doesn’t survive at an acid medium so normally like I think most people actually have h pylori in their stomach that’s a negative microbe I mean it’s it’s a it’s a neutral microbe that can activate and cause damage if it’s becomes unfriendly but it’s really controlled by the environment if that environment is too alkaline that h pile already kicks in there and you can have all these main side effects from that inflammation gastritis all those things so we have that issue and then we also have rosacea rosacea is the red face that comes from low stomach acid as well that’s one of the symptoms GERD we talked about that acid reflux bloating gas indigestion is basically all that means is you don’t have enough stomach acid okay it could be that you’re also taking anti acids which then causing less acid and stomach or even stress can deplete your asses your stomach bad food junk food sugar a lot of things take that asset out of stomach diarrhea you know can do it as well because you lose all your stomach acid vomiting people that have a bulimia because they vomit they can lose their stomach acids so that’s that’s some causes now let’s get into undigested protein in your stomach if you can’t break down protein in your stomach and break down into amino acid then you can’t build body tissues so there goes the hail hair nail skin muscle protein not to mention neurotransmitters like adrenaline tryptophan all these amino acids that are supposed to be there to help build your hormones I mean serotonin is a pleasure hormone so if it’s made in protein so if you’re that stomach is not right you’re not gonna have the building blocks to make those neurotransmitters or like hormone type things but they travel to the nervous system and then the last thing that we’ll do it to controls the absorption of minerals so without that stomach being pH you can’t poll in calcium you can’t pull in magnesium or zinc or iron so you have something called anemia even pernicious anemia basically it’s low iron and it could be also b12 different forms of anemia but if you can’t pull in that iron then you get a whole series of additional side effects one is anxiety OCD sleeping problems tinnitus it’s ringing the ear palpitations of the heart hair loss it genus like you can see the cascade of effects that occur from not having the stomach right and because you have an acid reflux condition or GERD you’re thinking I have too much acid and you’re basing all the therapies on the wrong solution and that’s where people kind of go from bad to worse and they’re treating all these other conditions when they if they just fix the stomach a lot of things will improve so I think fixing the stomach will fix all the different PHS in the body that’s just my personal opinion when the b12 you need a strong acid in your stomach to digest button b12 so if you don’t have b12 you have visual changes gait problems fatigue tingling numbness memory problems a whole bunch of things because b12 is involved in your DNA that’s involved in your brain tissue it’s involved in your immune system your energy your metabolism so many things so there what I recommend of course you can some of the other videos I recommend apple cider vinegar for those people that don’t like to tape up soda vinegar I do have something that you can take in a pill form and it’s called apple cider vinegar plus because I I have 50% of this is absolute vinegar powder and 50% of its betaine hydrochloride which is an acidifier so this is what I take between me I’m actually right before a meal to acidify my stomach and what it does is it starts to naturally give you the acids that you’re missing so you can start building up that acidifier and start to really correct the deeper cause I always recommend taking one before a meal with each meal and then the next day take two before each meal and then take three before each meal until you feel really really really good in your stomach and you’re digesting because you want to gradually increase the acid some people need a lot of Siddha fires to help fix your stomach and they might even need six initially to fix it and then it you can back off over time but you want to gradually go into it you don’t want to just take the huge amount wrap up the bat but it’s more I like it because it’s corrective because once you have how to chloric acid your body will tend to actually recycle it and it’ll start working better so it’s a great solution to fix a lot of problems naturally without having to make it worse okay so it’s more corrective than anything so I just wanted to touch on the importance of how to chloric acid and give you some of the functions of what it does and a deeper understanding of the of some myths that people have about it so thanks for watching I’ll see in the next video
This Post Was All About The Importance of Hydrochloric Acid (HCL).
Here’s The Video Description From YouTube
Dr. Berg’s Digest Formula:
Dr Berg talks about the importance of hydrochloric acid in our stomach. He explains what is hydrochloric acid and how to build hydrochloric acid inside our stomach. This is the most important fluid inside our body and without this acid in stomach our body will have a lot of problems. The stomach acid needs to be very strong (acidic) preferably in the range 1-3. If the stomach is less acidic it will not release pepsin (which is an enzyme for chemical reactions and is responsible for breakdown of proteins). This leads to bloating, gas, indigestion, acid reflux, lack of protein breakdown and diminished mineral absorption. The 3 major health benefits of hydrochloric acid are to help breakdown proteins, absorb minerals, kill microbes. Junk food, stress, antiacids, diarrhoea, vomiting can cause low stomach acid.
Low stomach acids can trigger Gas, Indigestion, Bloating, Iron deficiency (anaemia), Soft tissue calcium build up, Low B12, Constipation, Red cheeks, SIBO (small intestine bacterial overgrowth), Leaky gut.
Aging leads to low stomach acid and people tend to gradually loose stomach acid. As we age, we lose our stomach acids, in fact, by age 70, we have only 25% of our stomach acids left.
The importance of enough hydrochloric acid (HCL) in the stomach is vital. As we age, we lose our stomach acids, in fact, by age 70, we have only 25% of our stomach acids left. This leads to bloating, gas, indigestion, acid reflux, lack of protein breakdown and diminished mineral absorption.
Low stomach acids can trigger:
Iron deficiency (anemia)
Soft tissue calcium build up
SIBO (small intestine bacterial overgrowth)
The reason apple cider vinegar works is because of the acidifying effects and not for any other significant reason. But this is why ACV improves energy, weight loss, detox, sluggishness, sleep problems, etc.
