Product Notes:

If the prospect of tucking into a big meal has begun to fill you more with dread than joy because you're apt to suffer from gas, heartburn, or indigestion after, your stomach may not be producing as much hydrochloric acid (HCl) as it used to (which can happen as we age, or for other reasons). That impairs the initial digestion of the whole meal and the subsequent absorption of its protein content, since HCl converts another gastric juice into pepsin – an enzyme that breaks complex protein molecules down into smaller amino acid chains. To correct that, these tablets supply both more HCl to activate that process and some of those pepsin enzymes themselves to supplement the insufficient amounts of these digestive agents already being produced naturally.

The lower esophageal sphincter muscle is partially controlled by stomach acid levels; if they are low, the sphincter muscle may stay open, allowing food to go back up the esophagus (reflux). Because Betaine HCl plus pepsin increase stomach acid, this may reduce or even fully prevent reflux, while substantially improving your health and digestion.
