Betaine HCL – Supplements for Psoriasis II. – The Best Supplement for Many Psoriatics!
Every psoriatic who never tried this supplement should give it a try. The studies confirmed that many chronic illnesses are accompanied by the low stomach acid. Enough stomach acid is an extremely critical factor for overall health. Everything what you eat is not actually in your body until it goes through stomach (where the pathogens are meant to be killed by the stomach acid) and the nutrients are subsequently absorbed in the intestines. Ideally you stomach should have the pH about 1-3, however our modern diet depletes the stomach juices and high refined carbohydrate foods are a big enemy for your digestion.
Since the stomach acid production is very dependent on B-complex vitamins, zinc (and functional adrenal glands) it is very important to supplement these nutrients. If somebody is deficient in any of these the problems will come up. As the stomach acid production is decreasing the stomach becomes more alkaline and the opportunistic bacterium like H. Pylori may colonize it. H. Pylori is known to be able to suppress the HCL production so it is the vicious cycle and the longer you are in it the harder for body to restart the sufficient HCL production.
When you supplement with Betaine HCL your body gets incredible health support in the form of Betaine which is a great methyl donor (helps methylation – gene expression, production of enzymes, detoxification, etc.) and HCL kills the bacteria in the stomach. It is well known that many chronically ill people have their stomach colonized with bacteria which should be normally exist in the intestines only.
Betaine HCL doesn’t affect just your stomach it activate the whole digestive process (pancreas, liver). First it will clear the stomach of the pathogens, subsequently the HCL will stimulate the pancreas to produce the digestive enzymes which helps to digest the food (as a result improve the food allergies), also the enzymes are absorbed into the blood where they helps the body to dissolve the blood clots (microclots) which in my opinion play a big role in development of psoriasis plaques. Also the liver is stimulated to produce the bile salts what will kill the bacteria in the small intestine (bile acids are important in healing the leaky gut) and it is also the way liver uses to pump out the toxins out of it. Now when you know how this process works it is easy to get rid of psoriasis, isn’t it? Add to the regimen the quality fish oil – omega 3 fatty acids – 3 grams a day, vitamin D3, zinc, high quality b-complex and probiotics and you will be amazed how easy it is to send your psoriasis away!
Many of the psoriatics have so low stomach acid that they can take over the 10 capsules per meal (I do not recommend that!) and never experience the stomach pain. For everybody without the stomach ulcers or similar stomach problem Betaine HCL might be the right supplement.
For first time when you take Betaine HCL you should try one capsule with meal and if you don’t experience any pain in the stomach then take two capsules with the another meal and continually raise the number of capsules you take if you never experience the pain. At maximum you shouldn’t take more capsules per meal than about 5 (15 a day). However I would recommend to stay with at maximum 3 capsules per meal with every one of the three meals (9 capsules a day). After the two-three weeks you should see an improvement in psoriasis and in 4-8 weeks many skin patches should be away as
