Vital Nutrients’ Betaine HCL Pepsin & Gentian Root Extract provides both hydrochloric acid and the enzymes that help your gut break down protein more effectively. Since protein is one of the building blocks for cellular growth and repair‚ it's vital that your body digest and absorb enough of it. This supplement promotes the absorption of vitamin B-12 and iron. This supplement also works to balance the pH levels in the stomach and small intestine; if your gastrointestinal tract lacks the right level of acidity‚ your food won’t digest properly.

Some of the ingredients contained in Betaine HCL Pepsin & Gentian Root Extract are:

  • Betaine HCL‚ which is a source of hydrochloric acid that aids in breaking down proteins and fats during the process of digestion. Hydrochloric acid also kills harmful bacteria that enter into the digestive tract.
  • Pepsin‚ which is an enzyme that breaks down protein.
  • Gentian root extract‚ which is an herb that relieves the symptoms of indigestion and heartburn. Additionally‚ it has the power to stimulate the secretion of saliva‚ an acid needed to begin the digestion process. Gentian root extract also has the ability to increase the production of gastric juice‚ and it accelerates the process of emptying the stomach.
