Betaine hydrochloride digestive support – Promotes optimal stomach pH* – Supports protein digestion* – Provides 1,500 mg of betaine hydrochloride per serving (2 capsules per serving)Betaine HCl includes 1500 mg of betaine hydrochloride per serving, to help promote an optimal stomach pH and to support protein digestion. One of the stomach’s primary functions is the secretion of hydrochloric acid (HCl). HCl improves protein digestion and the absorption of several nutrients, including iron, calcium and vitamin B12. The median daily pH level of the stomach is approximately 1.4, slightly above the 0.8 pH level of secreted stomach acid. Betaine is a naturally occurring component of foods such as beets, spinach, and whole wheat. Betaine HCl is commonly used to supplement gastric acid levels: in a recent clinical study, a single 1500 mg serving of betaine HCl was effective in supporting an optimal stomach pH in healthy participants. Within 30 minutes of ingestion of the betaine HCl supplement, participant mean stomach pH was significantly reduced.*
