Betaine Hydrochloride

Betaine Hydrochloride

Hydrochloric acid (HCL) initiates the conversion of pepsinogen to pepsin & assists protein digestion. HCL renders your stomach sterile against orally ingested pathogens, prevents bacterial & fungal overgrowth of your small intestine, encourages the flow of bile & pancreatic enzymes, aids the absorption of folic acid, vitamin C, beta-carotene, iron, calcium, magnesium & zinc.*

Stomach acid secretion decline with advancing age. Such decline may increase the risk of malabsorption & certain clinical conditions.*

It is estimated that 30% of those over 60 years of age in the U.S. have atrophic gastritis, a condition of little or no acid secretion by the stomach. Forty percent of postmenopausal women have low basal gastric acid secretion.*

Common symptoms of decreased stomach acidity:

  • Bloating, belching, burning, & flatulence immediately after meals.
  • Indigestion, diarrhea, or constipation.*
  • A sense of fullness long after eating.*
  • Multiple food sensitivities.*
  • Nausea after taking supplements.*
  • Rectal itching.*
  • Iron & calcium deficiencies.*
  • Dilated blood vessels on the cheeks & nose.*
  • Undigested food in the stools.*

Unfortunately, the symptoms of too little acid can mimic the symptoms of too much acid & an inflammation of the lining of the stomach can be associated with too little as well as too much acid. A general guideline is that hyperacid states may be more in those who are younger & low acid states are more likely in those over 50 years of age.*
