Betaine HCl 648 mg - 120 Caps
  • Digestive Enzyme
  • with 150 mg of Pepsin

NOW Betaine Hydrochloride with Pepsin is formulated for maximum potency.  It combines Betaine Hydrochloride (naturally occurring in beets) with Pepsin that is standardized to National Formulary requirements.  This blend is encapsulated for quick delivery and is a great complement to any dietary regime.

By the time people reach the age of 40 or 50, stomach hydrochloric acid concentration is much lower and attributable to age-related immune and auto-immune conditions, including diabetes, cancer and obesity - particularly abdominal fat - hence the so-called "middle age spread." Use of betaine hydrochloride has frequently been credited with flattening the stomach for this reason. If food is not processed effectively by the stomach, it is as if the body is being starved of a healthy diet with the same potential health consequences due to an inefficient or sub-optimal immune system.

All disease arises from either low immunity, abnormal immunity or auto-immunity, including cancer, the immune system as a whole being ultimately dependent on gut flora of the stomach and digestive tract.  Betaine hydrochloride (betaine HCl) increases the concentration of hydrochloric acid in the stomach relative to how much is taken before meals. This enables the stomach to much more completely dissolve and process foods right down to base nutrients, as well as produce methyl groups, an important element in preventing cancer and other diseases.
