In the stomach, hydrochloric acid converts pepsinogen to pepsin, an enzyme that breaks down protein. As people age, hydrochloric acid secretions may be reduced, which can result in decreased levels of pepsin, and difficulty digesting food. Betaine HCL is used as a supplemental source of hydrochloric acid to promote optimal digestion.
As a dietary supplement, take one to two capsules with or immediately following a meal. As a supplemental source of hydrochloric acid, best taken with a small amount of water.

- I have been diagnosed with gastroparesis and now I wonder about that!
Now that I'm using Betaine with my meals I no longer have the full filling I used to have sometimes six hours after my meals!! I think product is terrific!
