Betaine HCL with pepsin and yellow gentian by Doctor's Best
Doctor's Best unique synergistic formula combining betaine HCL, pepsin and yellow gentian makes for a very powerful digestive aid. Betaine Hydrochloride (HCL) is the hydrochloride salt form of the amino acid-like substance betaine. Chloride contributes to normal digestion through the production of hydrochloric acid in the stomach. Pepsin is an enzyme that splits protein molecules in the early stages of digestion, in the stomach.
Contains yellow gentian (Gentiana lutea)
Yellow gentian is an herb also known as bitter gentian because it contains bitter substances. Gentian has been used since the Middle Ages for all kinds of disorders related to what this formula is intended for: digestion. Today it is widely used in herbal medicine.

Proper digestion is vital
Across several steps everything we eat -- proteins, carbohydrates and fats -- is reduced in size by means of enzymes, converted, absorbed and digested via our digestive system. Vitamins and minerals are thus released for use in the body.
Acidity in the stomach
When we chew food, the enzyme amylase is released in the mouth and the first breakdown of carbohydrates into glucose begins. The production of gastric juice has already started. The food then arrives in the stomach, where proteins are broken down into amino acid chains with the help of the enzyme pepsin. Betaine HCL contains 650 mg of hydrochloric acid and contributes to proper acidity levels in the stomach. Efficient digestion is important for the proper absorption of nutrients and for maintaining balance in the intestine.
Gastric juices play an important role in the conversion of food in the stomach. Gastric juices include hydrochloric acid, digestive enzymes, mucus and intrinsic factor. Intrinsic factor is a substance necessary for the absorption of vitamin B12 from food in the small intestine.
Caution is advised
Do not use in case of stomach or duodenal ulcers. Do you often use non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drugs (NSAIDs), aspirin, corticosteroids or prednisone and want to use this product? Then consult your doctor first.
