Science & Research

Verifiable Science

Betaine HCl and pepsin are gastric-juice components essential to the digestion of food and absorption of most nutrients.1 In particular, betaine HCl is necessary for adequate absorption of protein, calcium, vitamin B12 and iron.2 The low pH of the stomach's hydrochloric acid destroys ingested bacteria and microorganisms.3,4 This formula can be beneficial for anyone seeking enhanced digestive function.
