  • Key features:

    • Maintains a healthy pH in stomach and small intestine

    • Promotes protein digestion

    Betaine HCl Pepsin & Gentian Root is a combination of nutrients that may be beneficial for promoting healthy digestion when taken at the start of a meal. Gentian, a bitter herbal, combines with Betaine HCl to help maintain a healthy pH in the stomach, supporting normal protein digestion, mineral, small intestine pH, and B12 absorption. Pepsin is the chief digestive enzyme in the stomach, which breaks down proteins into polypeptides. Pure uncut Pepsin is the preferred form and free of lactose, which may aggravate digestive complaints in lactose-sensitive individuals. Betaine HCI Pepsin Gentian Root Extract is often taken with Pancreatic Enzymes.
