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.

I am pleased to hear that you have 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 cause irritation if the digestive issues are not being caused by low stomach acid.

"Excellent results "

Having never previously suffered from heartburn or indigestion, I was recommended this product, for an annoying acid taste and burning which began to occur. I’m told it’s an age thing. I have to say, they worked their magic, and now I swear by them! They work quickly too. Not sure if it’s advised, but I have even taken them on an empty stomach, will no ill effects. I would highly recommend for minor stomach issues, without hesitation.

After years of digestive problems I needed to do something about it. A recent GI Map test showed I wasn''t digesting my food properly, especially fats, Betaine is really helping and I feel better for it. I searched for a quality product at a good price and believe I have found it here.
