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.

Have been taking this for a month with my evening meal (largest of the day) and the chronic indigestion/bloating has definitely improved.

"Digestive Ease"
By Anonymous , 24 Apr 2019
Like many others I have had plenty of digestive problems: pain, bloating,gas and malaise. I was diagnosed with gastritis and prescribed acid reducing medication. This exacerbated my problems. Counterintuitively I tried Nature’s Best Betaine HCL. ( I had done as much research as I could). I have found much improvement and am very grateful for the increasing wellbeing that I am experiencing as a result of this product.

I found the tablets to be too large and difficult to swallow. Therefore I did not use them. I did not know the size of the product before purchasing. Maybe too much "filler".

Thank you for your review.

I am sorry to hear that you have been experiencing difficulty in swallowing our tablets. For future reference we are able to send out a sample of any of our tablets / capsules (excluding THRs) should you wish to assess the size of them.

It is impossible to make tablets and capsules without the use of excipients or inactive ingredients. We never use an ingredient simply to bulk up a product: all our excipients have a very important role to play and allow us to make supplements which will maintain their integrity in the pots, will break down rapidly once in the body and will contain accurate levels of the active compounds stated on the label. They are all considered to be inert and safe for human consumption at levels much higher than our products will provide.

"I don’t think this product is going to help me"

I haven’t noticed any difference, sadly, in my digestive problems when taking this product. I was very hopeful but perhaps my digestive issues aren’t caused by low acid.
Recommend to a friend: Don't know
Thank you for taking the time to leave a review.

If you have not done so already, it may be worth discussing your symptoms with your doctor, as they would be best placed to advise you whether your symptoms are being caused by low stomach acid.
