Lamberts Betaine HCl 324mg/PEPSIN 5mg Description

Hydrochloric Acid is important for digestion

As we age, our bodies slow down and so do our stomachs!. Hydrochloric acid production often declines even though it remains important for the breakdown of food in the gut. Hydrochloric acid has several different functions; for example it sterilises the ingested food, acidifies it, and activates a powerful protease called Pepsin that breaks down protein as well as allowing vitamin B12 to be extracted from foodstuffs. The food then passes into the intestines, where it is further digested into the various nutrients ready for absorption.

This supplement will help to replace some of the lost acidity in the stomach, thus aiding the digestion of food. The tablets are designed to dissolve in the stomach where the acidity is required.

Betaine HCl 324mg /Pepsin 5mg:

  • Provides additional acidity to the stomach
  • Betaine HCL releases hydrochloric acid after swallowing, the same acid that is produced naturally by the stomach
  • These tablets are designed to dissolve in the stomach where the acidity is required
  • As we age our natural production of hydrochloric acid can decline, but its importance for the breakdown of food in the gut remains unchanged
  • Please read the cautions

The stomach naturally produces hydrochloric acid to keep its content acidic. This is important for effective digestion by enzymes and for killing pathogenic bacteria present in the food. Additionally, several minerals such as iron, calcium and zinc rely on this acid for their utilisation in the body.

Many factors can disrupt acid production, such as:

  • infections (even something as simple as a cold)
  • surgery
  • stress or trauma
  • fever
  • candidiasis
  • spicy foods
  • foods eaten too hot or too cold
  • certain drugs

Pepsin is an enzyme which helps digest proteins in our diet.
