DIGESTIVE SUPPORT WITH BETAINE
Our Betaine supplement is a unique formula containing Betaine HCl, Bogbean extract and Papain – three ingredients that together assist digestion by supporting the natural stomach acid production and the breakdown of proteins. The Bogbean extract (10:1) is a source of valuable bitter substances which are known support the function of Betaine HCl in increasing the flow of stomach juices. The Papain from papaya is an enzyme that breaks down proteins from food – just like pepsin, a digestive enzyme in the stomach that requires an acidic environment to function optimally.
Each capsule contains 500 mg Betaine HCl (=380 mg Betaine), 100 mg Bogbean extract & 100 mg Papain (100.000 U/g). A lot of Betaine capsules contain synthetic additives like magnesium stearate and microcrystalline cellulose. Our Betaine HCl supplement is free from such additives. Moreover, they are suitable for vegans.
SPECIALLY DEVELOPED FOR
When the stomach doesn't produce enough gastric acid, digestive problems including indigestion, bloating and heartburn can occur. In the long term the lack of stomach acid may lead to nutrient deficiencies as key minerals and proteins can't be efficiently absorbed into the body.
