- Promotes Digestive Efficiency
Betaine HCL/Pepsin/Gentian Bitters contains three nutritional factors that perform complementary functions designed to support the efficiency of the digestive process. Supplementing with Betaine HCL may support the stomach's digestive capacity. Pepsin is an enzyme produced by the body to digest protein-containing foods in the stomach. Pepsin works in conjunction with stomach acid to support protein digestion. Gentian is an herb used to promote digestive capacity and tonify the digestive tract. Its bitter nature may help to stimulate the body's production of digestive enzymes.
For even further enhancement of digestive support, use this supplement in conjunction with Best Digestive Enzymes-All Vegetarian, a uniquely formulated, full-spectrum high potency digestive enzyme blend.
Take 1 capsule with each meal, or as recommended by a healthcare professional.
Gelatin (capsule), stearic acid, magnesium silicate, silicon dioxide.

This digestive aid does seem to help. I have always struggled against the common "logic" that directs us toward reducing stomach acids when experiencing digestive upsets. If I have "stomach" issues, I seem to tolerate a V8 juice better than any other liquid. Contrary to common wisdom, you would think that the acidity would cause rather than resolve issues with reflux or indigestion. However, I have found in using this product that my food seems to break down more efficiently and progress through the stomach sooner. It would seem that retaining a volume of unprocessed retained foods in the stomach that created or aggravated my issues. While results with such products vary from person to person, I have found adding this occasionally at known "problem" meals has definitely removed the unwanted after effects for me personally.
As a "femme d'un certain age" (48, if you must know), I am assuming that my stomach acid is no longer as strong as it used to be (that's what you read, at least). I take these to try and ensure that I absorb nutrients better and don't waste the good food I make for myself and my family. When I run out of them, I do feel the difference, so I've already re-ordered these several times. I can definitely recommend them, particularly if you are low in magnesium. You need strong stomach acid to absorb magnesium, so I sometimes even take these on an empty stomach (just one capsule) when I take my Dr's Best High Absorption magnesium between meals. With meals which are high in fat and/or protein, I sometimes take two. Oh, and I also like the fact that these also contain the gentian bitters. I sometimes use a liquid bitter and they do help to calm your stomach if you've had a heavy meal. So, five stars for this one, too!!!

I have been telling people about this product for years. It has made a huge difference to reducing bloating and enabling absorption of minerals such as iron and zinc. I have trailed taking minerals and testing levels after 3 months using this product with taking minerals and not, and the serum results were amazing, my levels really picked up using this. The Ph of my stomach must have always been too high as I have always had bloating and low mineral status, this has changed everything. This is part of my secret to treating IBS successfully!
Value for money

I like the addition of gentian bitters in the formula. It helps stimulate the production of hydrochloric acid in your stomach. The price is excellent. The health benefits from betaine HCL are amazing especialy if you are blood type A. If you take a lot of supplements you need this. It helps with absorption of nutrients.
