As we age, production of stomach acid declines, which reduces the efficiency of digestion and nutrient absorption. Natural Factors Betaine Hydrochloride with Fenugreek supports normal digestion and acts as an effective digestive aid by stimulating the secretion of pancreatic enzymes and reducing gastric inflammation.
Uses & Benefits
Increases stomach acid to properly break down food
Enhances digestive function
Reduces gastric inflammation
Betaine hydrochloride increases the level of hydrochloric acid (HCl) in the stomach necessary for proper digestion and assimilation of nutrients from food. HCl assists in complete digestion of protein by activating pepsinogen to pepsin, 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.
In the absence of adequate HCl, poor digestion can arise 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 to kick-start the digestive process and help the body digest and break down foods.
Fenugreek seeds help sooth the gastrointestinal tract by providing mucilage to calm down inflammation by coating the lining of the stomach and intestines. Natural Factors Betaine Hydrochloride with Fenugreek supports normal digestion and helps alleviate any symptoms of digestive insufficiency.
