About Vitamins.co.nz Doctor's Best Betaine HCL Pepsin and Gentian Bitters

Betaine HCL/Pepsin/Gentian Bitters contains three nutritional factors that perform complementary functions designed to support the efficiency of the digestive process. Supplementing with Betaine HCL may support the stomach's digestive capacity. Pepsin is an enzyme produced by the body to digest protein-containing foods in the stomach. Pepsin works in conjunction with stomach acid to support protein digestion. Gentian is an herb used to promote digestive capacity and tonify the digestive tract. Its bitter nature may help to stimulate the body's production of digestive enzymes.

For even further enhancement of digestive support, use this supplement in conjunction with Best Digestive Enzymes-All Vegetarian, a uniquely formulated, full-spectrum high potency digestive enzyme blend.

 

How Does It Work?

Betaine HCl is the HCl form of Betaine hydrochloride used as a nutrient to supplement the stomach’s own production of hydrochloric acid, or stomach acid. Stomach acid is normally produced by the parietal cells of the stomach and the function of stomach acid is to break down food that enters the stomach into smaller fragments and nutrient components. Betaine HCl has been shown to lower gastric pH which could potentially aid in the absorption of nutrients during a period of hypochlorhydria, or a lack of stomach acid. Gentian is an herb that is native to parts of Europe and Asia.

The root has been used extensively by traditional herbalists to support digestive function due in large part to its bitter constituents. Various traditional texts classify gentian as a bitter tonic and digestive stimulant, due to its ability to promote the secretion of digestive enzymes. Gentian has been shown to stimulate gastric secretions, as well as promote choleretic activity.

Research suggests that the body’s capacity to produce stomach acid normally declines as we age. Stress and other factors may impact on stomach acid production as well. At the junction of the esophagus and the stomach is the lower esophageal sphincter (LES). The LES contracts when food enters the stomach and prevents backflow. A major trigger for this process of tightening the sphincter is the presence of stomach acid.
