Despite there being 2,113 research papers listed on Pubmed.com, most doctors still fail to understand how poor stomach acid creates so many of our digestive complaints.
Research started in the 1830’s shows that stomach acid needs to be strong in order to properly digest foods. Sadly, a MYTH of high acid was promoted for almost 30 years now… yet when doctors who regularly test stomach acid levels they find:
Dr. Steven Sandberg-Lewis (ND) a Professor of Gastrology says that in his clinic 75% of the patients who have reflux have also tested for having low stomach acid.
Dr. Jonathan Wright (MD) says in his book that 90% of the patients in his clinic have low stomach acid.
In other words, when doctors actually test those who complain of digestive upset, they find on average more people have low stomach acid production than high acid. Sadly, this means there’s high odds you could be suffering low acid production.
My guess is that your doctor never mentioned the issue OR has assumed that you have high acid production without performing testing.
This is unfortunate, because the treatments for high acid (such as PPI's) are linked to further digestive issues like SIBO, bone loss, kidney issues, and brain problems.
If you eat a healthy diet but still experience:
Occasional constipation, diarrhea, heartburn
Heaviness or fullness after eating
Bloating or gassiness
Burping and stomach noises
Hair, skin and nail complaints
Mood issues and lowered energy
A 2001 study showed 40 percent of Japanese men and women over 50 years of age suffered from achlorhydria (no stomach acid production).
In an American study, 31.5 % of men and women over 60 suffer from low acid production.
The really amazing thing about low stomach acid is that it doesn’t take long to find out if it’s part of the issues you're experiencing.
You can request your doctor to order you one of these 3 tests:
Direct Acid Aspiration
The Heidelberg Test
The SmartPill Test
However, there may only be 1,000 or so doctors who conduct them - and they often cost $300-$500 dollars.
But the good news is: There’s a much cheaper at-home remedy that will tell you (usually within 7 days) if you have low acid levels.
And if it turns out you don’t need stomach acid support, we’ll make sure you get your money back (minus shipping and handling).
Most people don’t know that a healthy stomach produces enough acid at each meal to be more acidic than battery acid. The human stomach is an amazing organ and needs the necessary acid to:
Begin the breakdown of your foods
Unfold “protein balls” so enzymes can do their work
Activate the protein enzyme, Pepsin
Liberate B12, calcium, magnesium and other essential minerals
Kill or sterilize incoming bugs that could harm us
Helps jumpstart peristalsis (digestive waves)
Signal the digestive hormone CCK to release bile salts and enzymes
HCL Guard+ is a biomimicking stomach support supplement designed to support each of the issues mentioned above, which makes us different from all the other supplements on the market. Until now, no one has attempted to holistically support the entire stomach.
Here’s What the HCL Guard+ Advanced Biomimicking Formula Does:
Which means you can…
There are 9 powerful reasons why HCL Guard+ is a premier professional grade stomach support supplement AND the only Holistic stomach support on the market.
Which is needed to protect vitamin B12 and allow it to be absorbed in the lower part of the small intestine. While it’s a normal part of stomach juices, it can be depleted in low acid situations causing B12 malabsorption issues.
Pepsin is a powerful protein breakdown enzyme in the stomach that is only activated at proper acid pH levels. Ours is the strongest on the market (pork based - 3000 to 1 strength), which means it could be 40% stronger than beef pepsin.
We include a generous amount of organic ginger powder, which is traditionally known to support the stomach but in recent research, shows it helps the lower stomach to produce stronger peristalsis waves.
DGL is a special form of licorice root that doesn’t raise blood pressure. It is used heavily in Asian countries to help heal the digestive cells and lining. DGL specifically helps soothe the stomach lining.
Each capsule of HCL Guard+ includes 550mg of betaine hydrochloride which is the main component of stomach acid and has been shown in research studies to restore proper acid levels.
Rest easy knowing we use no added fillers or junk into our capsules. Nothing but powerful ingredients to support your body!
HCL Guard+ contains no-gmo’s ever.
HCL Guard+ is hypoallergenic, so you can focus on healing - not inspecting your labels for hidden ingredients.
We all need community right now. Community to help us know what is normal or abnormal, or to get vetted ideas to ask our health practitioners about. You get that with HCL Guard+
Research studies in humans have studied doses of Betaine HCL from 1,500mg to 4,500mg. And doctors like Dr. Jonathan Wright have said that some patients take up to 6,500mg per meal.
As you can see, there is a wide range of possibilities.
The truth is you don’t need to take what others have taken - you need to take what your specific body needs. Stomach acid is like any hormone. You don’t want too little or too much. You want exactly as much as you need to be healthy.
Which is why…
Most People Need to Do an HCL Challenge…
The reason is your body, epigenetics, and diet are different from everyone else's. The idea that each person should take the same number of pills is an outdated, simplistic model of the human body. The HCL challenge helps you find your personal dosage and that’s when the magic happens!
After this, most people will take HCL Guard+ week-after-week, month-after-month for 12 to 36+ months.
During this time, powerful healing can occur and the body can sometimes return to making its own acid levels.
Please know, this is heavily dependent on age, previous medical history, and root causes.
Pioneered by Dr. Jonathan Wright and various Naturopathic Doctors the HCL challenge is simple and works like this:

"I have been struggling with severe SIBO symptoms for more than three years. I tried HCL Guard + because I clearly wasn’t able to digest food anymore despite taking probiotics and digestive enzyme supplements, reducing sugar, increasing fiber and water intake.
Relief came with my first dose. I take two capsules with protein meals. I am two months into HCL Guard and it continues to work (unlike other digestive supplements that stopped working within weeks of starting them.) It is the only digestive supplement I take now.
I am hopeful that HCL Guard continues to be the solution to my digestion issues. It’s allowed me to start living like a normal person again instead of living trapped in SIBO symptoms. Encouraged and grateful to have found HCL Guard+. I truly hope others are benefiting as well!"Kathleen Eppink
"HCL Guard supplement could not have come at a better time for me. I finally figured out I was not producing and HCL in my body.
I started with 2 capsules before my meal for the next few meals. I waited to see how my body would respond. The next day I awaited the true test results, which in my world means bowel movement (BM). I noticed I was more productive and my movement was easy with no pain.
I then increased my dosage to 3 capsules at the beginning of the next few meals to see how my body would respond with this dose and wow, incredibly better quantity, quality and ease of movement was perfect. This is now my new favorite supplement to take.
What I love are the ingredients are so gentle on my system. I feel so much better since I started taking HCL Guard+. I feel like my food is better digested since I started taking HCL Guard+.
I even took myself off them for a few days to see if I could notice a change. Yes immediately noticed that my body needed the support from the HCL Guard+ to help me digest my food and give me a new love for going to the bathroom.
I can't believe it has taken me this long to find a supplement that would help my gut issues and also help my bowel movements. Thanks making a quality supplement that has been engineered properly for those of us who really need it. "Karen Thomas, Functional Nutritionist
"Initially I was skeptical, I have a tenancy towards constipation and bloating and have for many years. My issues are systemic and have been happening for very long so I honestly didn’t think it would do much.
I started at 2 pills a meal, but once I started taking 4 pills of HCL Guard+ with my meals my bowel movements are more frequent and much easier to pass and I feel less bloating as well.
I know I have more work to do on systemic infections, but HCL Guard+ is making my life so much easier."Divya Menghani
"I'm still loving HCL Guard+ and I purchased multiple more bottles. I've seen increased transit / motility time on par with other motility-only supplements."L. C.

A: HCL Guard+ is for anyone who wants to get the most nutrients from their food. It’s for anyone who’s having sluggish, sour, heavy, or slow digestion.
It also helps for those who have SIBO and other infections and their peristalsis isn’t working as they’d like.
HCL Guard+ is for anyone who’s having lower than normal stomach acid levels. This could be a result of infections, high stress, aging over 50 and or other issues.
It’s especially helpful for increasing energy, mood, and hair / nail quality. These improvements are often a direct relationship to finally absorbing amino acids, B-vitamins and minerals.
A: It starts with the fact that HCL Guard+ is designed to help you heal your stomach cells and muscles. Retraining your stomach how to work so hopefully months in the future you won’t need it.
