Betaine HCl with Pepsin and MucoSave® can help to acidify the stomach, activate the digestive process, and soothe the stomach lining, alleviating occasional heartburn and indigestion.*
MucoSave® is a patented combination of different extracts of prickly pear cactus (Opuntia ficus indica) and olive leaves (Olea europaea), providing a gentle soothing effect.*
Low Stomach Acid Support*
As we age, normal gastric acid secretions are reduced. Individuals who have occasional heartburn may turn to medications designed for frequent heartburn sufferers, such as antacids and acid-blocker drugs.
These over the counter medications raise the pH in the stomach to reduce discomfort, but they are a poor solution as they block the beneficial digestive effects of our natural hydrochloric acid and pepsin.
Soothing Digestive Relief*
Enzymedica’s Betaine HCl has been formulated with a gentle potency of protein-digesting enzymes that will help aid the digestive process.*
Hydrochloric acid (HCl) secretion aids in protein digestion, activates the protein-digesting enzyme pepsin, fights off the undesirable overgrowth of bacteria in the stomach and small intestine, and it encourages the flow of bile and pancreatic enzymes.*
HCl acid is vital in nutrient absorption.*
