Product Information

This is a specialist product for aiding digestion which supplies a relevant level of betaine, a compound that releases hydrochloric acid, plus pepsin, an enzyme that breaks down proteins in food.

The stomach naturally produces hydrochloric acid to keep its contents acidic. This is important for effective digestion by enzymes and for killing pathogenic bacteria present in the food so that the ingested food is sterilised. It also allows Vitamin B12 to be extracted from the food we eat. However as we age, we tend to produce less acid and so a supplement can be useful to help replace some of the lost acidity.
Daily Intake
As a food supplement to aid protein digestion, take 1 tablet with each main meal, to a maximum of 3 per day. Swallow the tablets whole. Do not exceed recommended daily dose.
Food supplements should not replace a balanced diet and healthy lifestyle.

"Made no difference"

I bought this for my husband who has severe bloating every evening after a light dinner. I had read somewhere that HCI could help, but unfortunately it made absolutely no difference to him. I suppose I was hoping for a miracle cure, so am disappointed.

Thank you for taking the time to leave a review.

I am pleased to hear that your husband has not found this product helpful. We would normally suggest that anyone wishing to use this product should get their stomach acid level tested by their doctor prior to using this product, as this may not be of benefit to those who do not have low stomach acid. I have contacted you directly to discuss this further.

I am taking this product in the middle of my main meal to help with my excess acidity. I have been living on antacids and now find that although it is early days yet, I have cut right down on my antiacids and am feeling a lot better. Other people have managed to balance their stomach acids and give up antacids altogether. I hope to achieve this. Well worth a try.

"Effective!!"

To help my stomach digest my food, having been put on medication by the Dr., much prefer the more natural way.
Not been taking it for long, hence four stars!

We would not recommend supplements instead of prescribed medication, unless you discuss this with your doctor first and they are happy for you to do so. We would also suggest that you keep your doctor informed of any supplements that you are taking.
