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.

After having my gaul bladder removed 15 years ago, I have suffered non stop with my digestive system. First told I had IBS then diverticulitis then inflammation of the bowl. To cut a long story short I read on a forum about this product, I am no doctor but along with cutting out products containing refined sugars and adding a good probiotic tablet to my diet along with this product...... Life has returned
