What’s causing this button-popping bloat? No matter what I eat-even healthy stuff-my stomach bloats so badly, I need to unbutton my pants. My doctor says it’s just part of aging, but I’m only 36! What is he talking about, and how can I fix it?

Something I often see in clients is low production of hydrochloric acid (HCI), the body’s main digestive “juice.” This can come from factors like chronic use of antacids and overconsumption of processed foods. The result: Protein is not digested properly, which causes gas buildup and water retention, leading to stomach bloat. Other symptoms include fatigue, brain fog, constipation, hair loss and dry skin.

If your doctor determines this is the case, you can restore HCI levels by supplementing with HCL+2 ($23 for 180 caplets, at http://www.unikeyhealth.com/ or call 800-888-4353). Take one or two caplets before each high-protein meal until bloat disappears (about one to two weeks). Then take at least one caplets weekly for maintenance.
