Provide a boost to the digestive process in your body with Betaine HCL Pepsin and Gentian Bitters Capsules from Doctor’s Best®. Containing three vital nutrients to support digestion‚ these capsules may aid your stomach’s capacity.

Betaine HCL may come in handy when adequate acid is not produced by the stomach for proper digestion. It supplements the stomach acid necessary for the proper breakdown and assimilation of nutrients from food. Betaine HCL may restore acid levels and boost gastrointestinal activity.

Pepsin in this supplement from Doctor’s Best® is produced in the cells of the stomach lining and released when food enters the digestive tract. Pepsin potentially contributes to breaking down protein into smaller particles‚ known as polypeptides. If your body does not produce the right amounts of pepsin‚ then proteins may not metabolize properly in your digestive system.

Gentian root is an herb that may boost digestive abilities and tone the digestive tract. It has a bitter taste and steps up the production of digestive enzymes in your stomach. Gentian in Betaine HCL Pepsin and Gentian Bitters Capsules from Doctor’s Best® may relieve digestion troubles such as intestinal gas‚ loss of appetite‚ heartburn and vomiting.

      Good Product

      from BIRMINGHAM AL on 7/23/2019
      I take one with every meal, two with a very dense meal. I seem to be lacking enough hydrochloric acid to help me digest my food and ward off parasites. As we age our bodies can begin to produce less of this important acid.

      Pros

      It does what its supposed to do: helps with digestion.

      Cons

      Nothing

      Great Product

      from Mount Juliet TN on 7/18/2019
      Most people need more stomach acid not less. I was able to come off reflex meds. I take take 2-3 with each protein meal.

      Pros

      Great price at Pure Formulas.

      Dependable

      from BIRMINGHAM AL on 7/19/2018
      I needed something to help with digestion, and after trying many other products, Doctor’s Best Betaine HCl Pepsin & Gentian Bitters came out my pick, right amount of betaine, and, of course, you should always include some pepsin when taking betaine hci. I think the gentian bitters is just a bonus.

      Pros

      Good, dependable brand!

      Cons

      All the added ingredients - does the manufacturer really need to add silicon dioxide, stearic acid and magnesium silicate?
