The multi-billion dollar antacid industry has you believing that stomach acid is bad for you.
Assist Dairy and Protein supports your digestion with plenty of HCL, which your stomach desperately needs in order to properly break down foods and assimilate nutrients.
While you may use antacids for heartburn relief or indigestion, they are not a cure for what causes these problems in the first place. Contrary to popular belief, indigestion is usually caused by low stomach acid — also called hypochlorhydria — and it affects up to half of our population.1

Low stomach acid eventually creates a vicious cycle: low stomach acid = low minerals = acidic blood. This cycle continues because acidic blood further creates low minerals and low stomach acid.
Low DHEA and high cortisol affect your brain and behavior, but that’s not all. The vicious cycle of low stomach acid affects your inner ecosystem too. Low stomach acid can lead to more bad guys (pathogenic bacteria, candida and viruses) than good guys (healthy microflora), thus lowering your immunity.
Here are some of the common symptoms and disorders caused by low stomach acid:1,3
If you’re sick and tired of feeling sick and tired, The Body Ecology Antiviral Protocol has answers.
Here are the 3 key ways to increase your stomach acid:
As you eat a healthy Body Ecology Diet, you will find your digestion improving. You may notice that you experience heartburn relief, less indigestion and improved energy. Or perhaps, if you have had long-standing digestive problems, your journey to health may take a bit longer. Be patient as you go step by step towards true health.
