Betaine Hydrochloride with Fenugreek
Betaine hydrochloride, derived from beets, increases stomach acid to enhance digestion. This is especially important for older persons, particularly those over 60, who may not produce enough stomach acid to properly digest food and nutrients.
What does Betaine Hydrochloride with Fenugreek do?
HCL makes the stomach produce more acid and also stimulates the secretion of pancreatic enzymes, further aiding digestion.
Not only does insufficient stomach acid interfere with digestion, a low level of stomach acid can increase the potential and severity of certain bacterial and parasitic intestinal infections. The low pH created by HCL destroys microorganisms that enter the gastrointestinal tract.
Nutritionally-oriented health care practitioners note that persons with chronic health problems such as gallstones, allergies, and asthma, often do not produce enough stomach acid.

Who should use Betaine Hydrochloride with Fenugreek ?
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.
