Betaine HCl and Pepsin from Lamberts provides the body with hydrochloric acid to supplement low acid production and prevent recurring heartburn and acid reflux. The stomach naturally produces hydrochloric acid to keep its contents acidic. This is important in order to provide the right conditions for effective digestion and for killing harmful bacteria present in food. It also allows Vitamin B12 to be extracted from the food we eat. However as we get older, the amount of stomach acid produced decreases which in turn can cause heartburn. Without sufficient stomach acid, incomplete digestion can result in fermentation. This causes irritation, discomfort, creates gas, constipation and/or diarrhoea. This then backs up into the oesophagus causing the symptoms of heartburn. Incomplete digestion can also cause nutrient deficiencies, as food is not being digested properly. Betaine HCl and Pepsin from Lamberts is suitable for anyone who is looking for indigestion relief such as older adults (55+) or those with a compromised digestive system.
Pepsin is one the main digesting enzymes produced by the stomach and its role is to digest proteins. By including pepsin in these capsules, it further enhances digestion as proteins are hard to digest and undigested protein is one of the major causal factors for heartburn. Betaine HCl and Pepsin tablets are designed to dissolve in the stomach to further enhance the acidic conditions.
