My stomach gurgles so loudly that my fifth-grade students all erupt into giggling fits! And it happens all the time-even when I’ve just eaten and don’t feel the least bit hungry. Is my body trying to tell me to eat more?
It’s unlikely, especially if you’ve just eaten a balanced meal and feel satisfied. Instead, your grumbles are more likely the result of a hydrochloric acid (HCl) deficiency. This enzyme aids in the digestion of protein and the absorption of nutrients. In addition to stomach rumbles, symptoms of HCl deficiency include weak fingernails, prominent facial capillaries, bloat and constipation. If these sound familiar, consider taking an HCl supplement. Follow label directions for use. Try UNI KEY Health’s HCl! And since HCl deficiency has been linked to conditions such as osteoporosis and arthritis, you might ask your doctor to test your levels.
