- Dietary Supplement
- Hydrochloric Acid Source
- Digestive Support
In the stomach, hydrochloric acid converts pepsinogen to pepsin, an enzyme that breaks down protein. Pepsin breaks down proteins into smaller, more easily absorbed substances. As people age, hydrochloric acid secretion may be reduced, which can result in decreased levels of pepsin. Without proper pepsin levels, the body has a difficult time digesting food. Betaine hydrochloride is used as a supplemental source of hydrochloric acid, which can be utilized by the stomach to produce pepsin. The combination of betaine hydrochloride and pepsin provide an excellent stomach tonic.

If you have a problem with stomach acid, or maybe your nails or hair don't grow well then you may want to try this product. For many years I couldn't donate blood because my iron was too low-that was with taking iron tablets. When I started the HCL not only did I stop the iron tablets but I could donate blood again and my fingernails grew for the first time in my life-no cracking peeling or chipping. When my iron got low again many years later I knew it was time to up the dosage again.
I have now used this for a month and I must say it is really easy on the stomach but still does the job. I find I do very well on the paticular brand and will buy it again!
cannot digest meat/protein or absorb vitamins without it

After a major b12 deficiency that was only corrected with taking the daily then weekly shots, my B21 started to decrease steadily afterward. I've also had a lot of trouble with constipation. I read about digestion issues caused by low stomach acid and tried this supplement. I take 2-3 pills after I eat meat and take 2 pills before bed when I take Selenium, B6, fish oil, Magnesium, B12, and D. My nails started growing at a fast rate and are very strong (this is highly unusual), my energy level has increased slightly (high levels of fatigue are normal for me), it has helped my facial/back acne too because I'm not constipated etc. (yes! yes!), and my B12 has stabilized (yes!). This supplement has been a real life saver for me. I experimented with how many I should take depending on what I eat and I can get 3-4 pills in until my belly feels warm, I just prefer the 2 pills. Don't take too many or your belly will ache/cramp and you might get a headache - start slow. Also, do not take without food on an empty stomach, it will hurt your belly with cramps. I also take Source Naturals Enzymes as well and usually only when I rarely meat, potato, beans or such items that usually give me bloating and constipation. There is milk in this product but it does not bother me that I've noticed. I cannot find it at a better price anywhere else for this size, quality and quantity. I hope it might help you too.

Most people don't realise how harmful ant-acid tablets are and that they only compound the problem in the majority of cases. When you experience heartburn and indigestion you most likely have NOT ENOUGH acid in your stomach - and not too much as the advertisers would have you believe. These Betaine Hydrochloride tablets re-balance the acid levels in your stomach by adding acid naturally derived from beetroot and aid in the proper and full digestion of your food thus ensuring you get maximum nutritional benefit. Although not a frequent sufferer of indigestion etc. I have used these tablets on and off for years and they have always worked for me. Please give them a try before you reach for harmful ant-acids.
