Do you have a bowel movement for every meal you eat? Anything less is constipation, which leads to low energy and illness. Do you get heart-burn or acid reflux? Don't ever use an anti-acid product - they make it worse. And, even if you are eliminating properly, it doesn't mean you are absorbing the nutrients from your food.
If you only took one supplement daily, it should be HCL. I find it important for anyone over 25 and crucial for anyone over 40, for so many reasons. Next would be Digest.
As we age, the stomach's ability to produce enough hydrochloric acid & the small intestine's ability to produce enough digestive enzymes to digest the food is on a steady decline. By the time we're 70, they're producing 10% of what they produced when we were 20. That causes 3 problems:
1) We're not getting the nutrition and energy from the food because much of it is not getting digested. This can cause fatigue, illness and also weight gain because the body is always asking for more.
2) The undigested food will rot as it moves through the digestive system. Some of this rotting food will get reabsorbed and pollute the body as toxins, raising risk of illness. Plus the body will have to work harder to deal with the toxins, so it's a double whammy energy wise leading to more fatigue.
3) The rotting food is a perfect breeding ground for all sorts of infestation...bacteria, yeast, parasites.
The right dose of HCL and Digest for your age and weight will properly digest the food in the stomach, so you can absorb the nutrients. HCL will also kill any bacteria that happens to come in with the food itself, so it doesn't have a chance to start populating in your intestines.
It's also the instant remedy for acid reflux, which happens due to a lack of HCL, leading to rotting food which causes lactic acid and the acid reflux. Taking anti-acid drugs is actually the worst thing you can do because it further suppresses the HCL production, making you even worse down the road. Like most drugs, it's treating the symptom but ignoring the cause, even contributing to the cause.
Perhaps as important, taking HCL Activator with HCL will remethylate your cells. We sacrifice a third of our life span by eating cooked food without HCL (to understand why, read my HCL web page below). By remethylating the cells we regain that lost life. The methyl groups also protect us from disease, because without them, the junk cancer and viral genes get expressed more easily. This is why so many in old age are suffering so greatly. The HCL Detox Kit can prevent this and vastly raise the quality of life.
The reason HCL declines with age is that we are eating a cooked food diet when our bodies were engineered for a raw food diet. HCL was meant to be an anti-infective agent for the whole body and to be used for digestion sparingly. But cooking the food destroys the natural enzymes in the food to help it digest itself. Plus, our soil has become so deficient that even raw foods don't have adequate enzymes and require some HCL & Digest.
I can't emphasize enough what a mistake it is to overlook your body's need for HCL and what a gift and huge benefit it will be for you.

Bernard Jenson, a famous natural health doctor, who lived a long life last century, used to say, "Take care of your stomach for the first 50 years and it will take care of you for the next 50 years." We say take care of your stomach and body your entire life - and live with extraordinary health, with the energy and passion to love life and make a difference.
