The food you eat travels from your mouth through your esophagus and into your stomach to be broken down into nutrients your body can utilize. After leaving your stomach‚ partially digested food passes into your small intestine‚ where it is broken down into even smaller components. Nutrients such as amino acids are absorbed from your small intestine into your bloodstream. Sometimes‚ you may experience issues with digestion‚ which can lead to a vitamin‚ protein or mineral deficiency. When your body lacks sufficient amounts of digestive enzymes and stomach acid‚ you can develop serious nutritional problems.

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.

Each bottle of Betaine HCL Pepsin & Gentian Root Extract by Vital Nutrients contains 225 capsules. Since the manufacturer doesn’t provide a recommended dosage‚ you should consult your doctor other health care professional before using this product.
