BETAINE HCL & Pepsin 90 Capsules

The healthy stomach normally secretes adequate amounts of Hydrochloric acid (HCl) and Pepsin for the complete digestion of foods, in particular proteins. Many factors can disrupt acid production such as infections (even something as simple as a cold), surgery, stress or trauma, fever, candidiasis, spicy foods, foods eaten too hot or too cold and certain drugs.

Recommended Daily Intake:

One capsule taken three times daily with food, or as professionally directed. NB: HCL & Pepsin capsules should not be opened or chewed.
