Betaine HCL provides digestive support for individuals with low stomach acid or for those consuming a high protein diet. Delivering 750mg of betaine hydrochloride with added pepsin, this product will effectively assist the stomach in digesting proteins and absorbing key nutrients that rely on adequate stomach acid for optimal availability to the body. It is also useful for supporting a healthy microbial environment within the stomach and intestines. It helps those with heartburn and upper gastrointestinal symptoms of gas.
Betaine HCL increases natural acid and enzymes of the stomach and therefore should not be used by individuals with gastritis, ulcers, duodenitis, or conditions related to an overproduction of acid. If you have any “upper tract” GI symptoms you will never have a perfect GI tract which is symptom free without this product. If you have been on long term proton-pump-inhibitor medication you likely need this plus digestive enzymes.
