That healthy glow is actually related to blood production and circulation. Blood deficiency is commonly discussed in Eastern Medicine and connected to many health problems. Without enough circulating blood and fluids, our tissues lack nourishment, especially our hair and skin. Nutrients and herbs that support blood production are vital to a healthy glow. This includes nutrients that optimize the stomach and ensure proper digestion.
- HCL Low stomach acid, also known as hypochlorhydria, is much more common than people realize. Common signs of low stomach acid are bloating, gas, belching, diarrhea, hair loss, heartburn, parasites, and intestinal infections. This means the food is only being partially broken down which releases gas as the food ferments. With adequate stomach acid, gases do not develop and the food will move quickly out of the stomach to undergo proper nutrient assimilation. Supplementing with HCL during meals is the most efficient way we have found to solve this problem. Digestive bitters, apple cider vinegar, lemon, and ginger also support HCL production and are encouraged but results vary. The foods we eat are also a common problem as most grains and other rich foods absorb many of the limited gastric juices the stomach has available.
- Vitality A traditional Chinese formula that is full of blood building, digestive, and circulation supporting tonic herbs. When the body is stressed even slightly, its digestive capacity is greatly limited. The use of tonic adaptogens like in the formula support the body's vital processes, like digestion, especially during times of stress (R).
- Chlorella Our favorite, truly natural “multi-vitamin,” chlorella supports blood building in a few ways. First, it supplies excellent blood building minerals like iron, chlorophyll, and folic acid. Second, it assists digestion by supporting HCL with its natural pepsin enzyme and other cofactors. Third, it has gentle detoxification properties which support purification of the blood resulting in healthier circulation.
