The stomach naturally produces hydrochloric acid to provide the right conditions for the digestion of food, absorption of nutrients and for killing harmful bacteria present in food. It is also necessary for the absorption of Vitamin B12 to be extracted from the food we eat. However, as we age, the amount of stomach acid produced decreases which in turn can cause heartburn and reflux. Betaine HCl and Pepsin from Pure Encapsulations provides 520mg of Betaine HCl per capsule with additional 21mg of pepsin. This ensures sufficient stomach acid to digest food completely and ensure it doesn’t just sit and ferment, creating gas and inflammation.
It also contains digestive enzymes to support protein, carbohydrate, fat, fibre and dairy digestion and alpha-galactosidase to relieve occasional bloating and gas. 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 and indigestion. Poor digestion can also cause nutrient deficiencies, as food is not being digested properly.
As a food supplement, take 1 capsule, 3 times daily, with meals, or as directed by a healthcare professional.
