Natural source, beet-derived betaine hydrochloric acid.
Betaine hydrochloride is also known as hydrochloric acid (HCL) or stomach acid. It helps digest food by breaking up fats and proteins, assists the body’s natural stomach acids in the absorption of nutrients, especially protein, calcium, magnesium, phosphorus, iron, B12.
Healthy stomach acid is needed for a healthy digestive tract. If you have low stomach acid, even the best food cannot be properly digested. If you are unable to absorb nutrients properly, this can lead to a range of health problems.
To add to this, as we age we typically produce less hydrochloric acid (HCL) which reduces our ability to efficiently absorb nutrients from food. Reduced HCL production affects the amount of protein and calcium we can absorb and can interfere with bone metabolism.
Incomplete protein metabolism can imbalance intestinal flora from putrification and the production of endotoxins. Betaine hydrochloric acid helps insure proper absorption of nutrients.
Natural Digestive Support
Premier HCL contains betaine hydrochloride to help provide digestive and detoxification support.
Betaine hydrochloric acid, or betaine HCL, may help increase stomach acid, or hydrochloric acid.
As we get older, we generally produce less stomach acid, which reduces our ability to efficiently absorb nutrients from food. Stomach acid helps digest food by breaking up fats and proteins. Less acid means we cannot absorb as much protein and calcium, and it also affects bone metabolism. Adequate levels of HCL are also necessary for adequate absorption of vitamin B-12 and iron.
Taking betaine HCL may help promote the proper absorption of nutrients.
Meanwhile, not getting enough protein can lead to an imbalance in intestinal flora.
The low pH of the stomach acid also destroys ingested bacteria and other microorganisms routinely found in the food you eat. If you have low stomach acid, these infecting invaders may not be destroyed by your stomach's acid bath.They may result in infections, which may over time lead to other symptoms.
