Natural Factors Betaine Hydrochloride (90 Cap)
Production of stomach acid declines as we age, reducing the efficiency of digestion and nutrient absorption. Natural Factors Betaine Hydrochloride with Fenugreek supports normal digestion and acts as an effective digestive aid by promoting increased gastric acidity.
Each Capsule Contains:
Betaine Hydrochloride 500 mg
Fenugreek (Trigonella foenum-graecum) (seed) 100 mg
Vegetarian capsule (carbohydrate gum [cellulose], purified water), vegetable grade magnesium stearate (lubricant), silica.
Temporarily promotes lowering of gastric pH to aid in digestion.
Betaine hydrochloride increases the level of hydrochloric acid (HCl) in the stomach, which is necessary for proper digestion and assimilation of nutrients from food. Stomach acid assists in complete digestion of protein, encourages the flow of bile and pancreatic enzymes, renders the stomach sterile against orally ingested pathogens, prevents bacterial or fungal overgrowth of the small intestine , and facilitates the absorption of many vitamins, minerals, and amino acids.
Poor digestion can arise in the absence of adequate HCl, leading to a range of digestive symptoms, such as bloating, belching, indigestion, diarrhea, or constipation. Betaine hydrochloride helps restore the proper acid levels in the stomach and maintain healthy gastrointestinal function. Taking betaine hydrochloride prior to or during meals can help kick-start the digestive process and help the body digest and break down foods.
Fenugreek seeds help soothe the gastrointestinal tract by providing mucilage to calm inflammation by coating the lining of the stomach and intestines. Natural Factors Betaine Hydrochloride with Fenugreek supports normal digestion and helps gently increase stomach acidity.
