Betaine HCl

  • Item # 53348

As we age, normal gastric acid secretions are reduced. Individuals who have occasional heartburn may turn to medications designed for frequent heartburn sufferers, such as antacids and acid-blocker drugs. These can raise the pH in the stomach to reduce discomfort, but they also block the beneficial digestive effects of hydrochloric acid and pepsin.

Hydrochloric acid (HCl) secretion aids in protein digestion, activates the protein-digesting enzyme pepsin, fights off the undesirable overgrowth of unfavorable bacteria in the stomach and small intestine, and encourages the flow of bile and pancreatic enzymes. Hydrochloric acid is vital in nutrient absorption.

Enzymedica's Betaine HCl has been formulated with a gentle potency of protein-digestive enzymes that will help support the digestive process.

MucoSave® is a patented combination of extracts of prickly pear cactus (Opuntia ficus indica) and olive leaves (Olea europaea). MucoSave® is specially designed to support and maintain a healthy mucosal system in the stomach and is also helpful with occasional, minor gastric upset or irritation. MucoSave has been shown to exert protective effects on the stomach lining in research studies.1 This effect is especially significant in combination with HCl and pepsin to relieve occasional heartburn or indigestion.
