NOW Betaine HCl

NOW - Betaine HCl with Pepsin

Regular price
Sale price

Info: 120 Capsules

As we age, we tend to produce less stomach acid, which leads to less activation of pepsin -- the main digestive enzyme required to breakdown protein -- which then makes it much more difficult to fully digest high protein meals (and thus leading to: dyspepsia). This product is formulated for maximum potency to immediately address both links in that chain. It combines 648 mg of 10 Grain Betaine Hydrochloride (naturally occurring in beets) with 150 mg Pepsin (derived from animals) that is standardized to national formulary requirements. You may also want to take it on occasion even if you aren't suffering from low HCl production -- after a particularly large, high-protein meal.

Product Notes:

Given the role of proper digestion in delivering nutrients to the immune system, some believe that chronically low hydrochloric acid is the catalyst for many diseases, and Betaine HCl may be of help in treating abnormally low levels of potassium (hypokalemia), hay fever, anemia, asthma, atherosclerosis, yeast infections, diarrhea, food allergies, gallstones, inner ear infections, rheumatoid arthritis (RA), and thyroid disorders.


Each capsule contains:
Betaine Hydrochloride (Beta vulgaris) (beet rhizome): 648 mg
Pepsin (NF 1:10000) (Sus scrofa) (wild boar stomach): 150 mg (500FCC PU)

Non-medicinal ingredients: Capsule (gelatin, water), Magnesium Stearate (vegetable source) and Silica.
