Natural Factors Betaine HCL 500mg 180caps
As we age, production of stomach acid declines, which reduces digestion & nutrient absorption. Natural Factors offers an effective digestive aid containing 500 mg of Betaine HCL with 100 mg of fenugreek. Together they help to stimulate secretion of pancreatic enzymes, reduce gastric inflammation and promote healthy digestion.
What is Betaine HCL?
Betaine hydrochloride contains approximately 23% hydrochloric acid, commonly known as stomach acid. It is naturally sourced from beets. Stomach acid initiates the digestive process by beginning the breakdown of food, especially protein. It is also an important protective mechanism against infection by killing any microbes that are contained in our food or water.
Most importantly Betaine HCL helps to increase stomach acid and assist digestion. This is especially important for older persons, particularly those over 60, who may not produce enough stomach acid to properly digest food and nutrients. HCL makes the stomach produce more acid and also stimulates the secretion of pancreatic enzymes, further aiding digestion.
