Betaine HCl with Pepsin
Betaine HCl provides 750 mg of betaine hydrochloride and Pepsin, a key protein digestive enzyme produced in the stomach. This product is ideal for those looking to support their stomach’s digestive function. Taking one capsule before a meal aids digestion, especially the digestion of protein-containing foods, and helps with the assimilation of nutrients.** This product is not recommended for anyone diagnosed with ulcer, gastritis, or overproduction of acid.
This product is in capsule form to ensure the delivery of betaine HCl and Pepsin to the stomach, where they are needed to initiate digestion. It has recently been reformulated to utilise a higher potency Pepsin (1:15,000) to maintain efficacy while reducing input and improving manufacturability.
Often, people will have a hard time digesting food because of a lack of stomach acid to break it down, so using a supplement to increase stomach acid production may benefit your digestion. Stomach acid helps break down the food into smaller pieces, making it easier to pass through the digestive system.
Some classic symptoms of poor digestion would be gas, bloating, stomach aches, and intestinal infections, which could all be a sign of low stomach acid levels. If you are travelling or going abroad, you may be unsure of the food quality, and as such, a supplement with HCl could benefit you because it will help you digest that food easier by assimilating it.
Pepsin is the other ingredient that will specifically break down proteins, so if you follow a higher protein diet or notice you struggle to digest certain high protein foods, then the Pepsin will be able to break these proteins down better to help them pass the stomach with less difficulty.
As a dietary supplement, take one to four capsules between eating a solid meal or as directed by your health care practitioner.
