Lamberts Betaine HCl with Pepsin
Lamberts Betaine HCl 324mg/Pepsin 5mg 180 Tablets provides additional stomach acidity, as Betaine HCl releases hydrochloric acid after swallowing, identical to that produced naturally by the stomach. Hydrochloric acid has several different functions; for example it sterilises the ingested food and activates a powerful enzyme called pepsin that breaks down protein, as well as allowing vitamin B12 to be extracted from foodstuffs.

What is Betaine Hydrochloride?
Betaine Hydrochloride is an organic compound and vitamin-like substance found in many different foods such as sugar beets, spinach and grains. It is currently recommended by medical professionals, as a supplemental source of hydrochloric acid in the stomach.
What does betaine hydrochloride do for the body?
Research has confirmed that Betaine HCl benefits those suffering from digestive upsets such as hypochlorhydria, a deficiency of stomach acid production. In most cases a healthy stomach can produce enough gastric acid to kill off harmful organisms. But when people experience stomach acid deficiencies, they are more likely to have bacterial and intestinal infections, as well as an increased level of harmful organisms.
In medicine, Betaine HCl is recognised as a powerful digestive aid for those who may have been a poor diet, experience prolonged dehydration and/or generalised Stress. It has also been shown to offer digestive support to elderly individuals and perimenopausal women. It is also a crucial compound in balancing homocysteine levels, a condition related to severe heart disease.
