The number 1 sign of aging is a gradual decline in gastric acid secretion or stomach acid.
Lack of stomach acid is a major cause of aging. Theoretically, this sign is apparent in people who are over 65 years old. However, many younger adults are beginning to have this condition, manifested as gallstones, heart disease, asthma, eczema, psoriasis etc. This may be due to chronic stress and poor diet.
Lack of stomach acid causes poor nutrient absorption and abnormal bowel flora, which are causes of many diseases including H.pylori infection (related to stomach cancer), candidiasis, memory loss, Parkinson’s disease, mood swings, depression, various cancers, premature aging of the skin, fatigue etc.
As mentioned in my book – You are what you can digest.
I have specially formulated a new remedy called Phyto-nzyme, which is a gentle yet powerful remedy to prevent and treat digestive health conditions. In addition to being a digestive aid for carbohydrate, protein, and fat metabolism, it is a good formula to improve liver function and good bowel flora (the friendly bacteria).
Take 2.5 to 5ml in 20ml water 15 minutes before a meal and see the difference.
However, Phyto-nzyme may not be suitable for those with duodenal ulcer and hyperacidity. It is not advisable to take long term commercial antacids such as omeprazole, as they suppress stomach acid. You can resolve the hyperacidity with lifestyle changes, right diet, and herbs such as yarrow (as in Hi-pep).
