Betaine HCl - Case (12 Bottles)
Betaine HCl Benefits
Betaine HCl increases stomach acid, which triggers the pH-dependent conversion of pepsinogen—an inactive substance—into pepsin, the active form of the enzyme we need to break down protein.
Betaine HCl helps to kill off harmful microbes and potential foodborne bacteria, preventing the pathogens from migrating into the small intestine.
HCl encourages the flow of bile and pancreatic enzymes to facilitate the digestion of other types of food, like fat.
Betaine HCl has been used to increase potassium levels in people with hypokalemia—low blood potassium.
Some research has shown that as many as 40% of people with acne also have hypochlorhydria, suggesting that boosting stomach acid with betaine HCl may be able to help these inflammatory skin conditions.
