Solgar Betaine Hydrochloride provides a safe and effective dose of Hydrochloric acid (stomach acid) plus pepsin, an enzyme that breaks down proteins in food. Prolonged poor digestion can lead to digestive discomfort, belching and bloating and poor health, so supporting healthy digestion is important for long term health and wellbeing.
The stomach naturally produces hydrochloric acid to keep its contents acidic. This is important for killing opportunistic pathogens, releasing other digestive enzymes and Vitamin B12 synthesis. However as we age, our product of acid decreases, so a supplement can be useful to help replace some of the lost acidity.
