Betaine HCl provides 750 mg betaine hydrochloride along with pepsin, a key protein digestive enzyme produced in the stomach. This product is ideal for those who are 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 any type of ulcer or gastritis, or those with an overproduction of acid.
This product is in capsule form in order 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 utilize a higher potency Pepsin (1:15,000) to maintain efficacy while reducing input and improving manufacturability.
This product provides betaine hydrochloride (HCl) along with pepsin, one of the body’s key protein
digestive enzymes. Betaine HCl is ideal for individuals with low stomach acid who are looking to
support their digestive function.* Our formulation is in capsule form to ensure the delivery of betaine
HCl and pepsin to the stomach, where they are needed to initiate digestion.*
Betaine HCl is an excellent source of
hydrochloric acid, also known as stomach
acid. Supplementing with betaine HCl can
be very beneficial, as insufficient production
of hydrochloric acid is fairly widespread and
often overlooked. Certain situations, such
as normal aging, can decrease the body’s
natural production of HCl.
Hydrochloric acid is required for:
• The breakdown of protein for further
digestion in the small intestine
• The proper absorption of nutrients,
including vitamin B12 and minerals
such as calcium, magnesium, zinc, iron, and selenium
• A healthy immune system – HCl is naturally produced in the stomach and acts as a protective
barrier against harmful microorganisms in our food
Pepsin is the main enzyme in the stomach
needed for digesting proteins. The body’s
digestive process begins when HCl activates
pepsin and other digestive enzymes in the
stomach. Those who have lower levels of
HCl may have trouble producing pepsin,
as HCl is essential for the creation of this
Recommended Use: Take one capsule
before meals to support digestion
– especially the digestion of proteincontaining foods – or as directed by your
health care practitioner.
Do not take this product if you are diagnosed with ulcers, gastritis, duodenitis, gastric cancer, or an
overproduction of acid.
