Betaine HCL 250 Caps
This supplement provides a blend of betaine HCl with pepsin, in order to best support healthy acidity within the stomach, gastric functioning and protein digestion.
Histamine intolerance has shown to impact acidity within the stomach, as well as nutrient absorption. Additionally, other factors associated with histamine intolerance, such as stress, have shown to also impact healthy production of stomach acid.
Sufficient amounts of stomach acid are needed to absorb vitamins and minerals, as well as to break down proteins into usable amino acids. Therefore, any reductions in stomach acid can produce a cycle of poor digestion, causing further stress and symptoms.
Additionally, having enough stomach acid is necessary to protect and maintain our gut bacterial balance, by protecting against potentially pathogenic microbes that may attempt to enter the digestive system. Stomach acid is therefore also important to protect and maintain a healthy bacterial balance within the gut. Due to the strong connection between bacterial balance and histamine intolerance, it is important to help maintain a healthy microbiome through sufficient stomach acid levels.
Take 1 or 2 capsules at the beginning of each meal, or as recommended by your healthcare professional.
