  • The food you eat travels from your mouth through your esophagus and into your stomach to be broken down into nutrients your body can utilize. After leaving your stomach‚ partially digested food passes into your small intestine‚ where it is broken down into even smaller components. Nutrients such as amino acids are absorbed from your small intestine into your bloodstream. Sometimes‚ you may experience issues with digestion‚ which can lead to a vitamin‚ protein or mineral deficiency. When your body lacks sufficient amounts of digestive enzymes and stomach acid‚ you can develop serious nutritional problems.

    Vital Nutrients’ Betaine HCL Pepsin & Gentian Root Extract provides both hydrochloric acid and the enzymes that help your gut break down protein more effectively. Since protein is one of the building blocks for cellular growth and repair‚ it's vital that your body digest and absorb enough of it. This supplement promotes the absorption of vitamin B-12 and iron. This supplement also works to balance the pH levels in the stomach and small intestine; if your gastrointestinal tract lacks the right level of acidity‚ your food won’t digest properly.

    Some of the ingredients contained in Betaine HCL Pepsin & Gentian Root Extract are:

    • Betaine HCL‚ which is a source of hydrochloric acid that aids in breaking down proteins and fats during the process of digestion. Hydrochloric acid also kills harmful bacteria that enter into the digestive tract.
    • Pepsin‚ which is an enzyme that breaks down protein.
    • Gentian root extract‚ which is an herb that relieves the symptoms of indigestion and heartburn. Additionally‚ it has the power to stimulate the secretion of saliva‚ an acid needed to begin the digestion process. Gentian root extract also has the ability to increase the production of gastric juice‚ and it accelerates the process of emptying the stomach.

    Each bottle of Betaine HCL Pepsin & Gentian Root Extract by Vital Nutrients contains 225 capsules. Since the manufacturer doesn’t provide a recommended dosage‚ you should consult your doctor other health care professional before using this product.

    Vital Nutrients provides a variety of effective‚ safe dietary supplements. All of their products are gluten-free‚ GMO-free‚ and packaged in BPA-free bottles.

    This works!

    I have been diagnosed with acid reflux disease and was prescribed acid blocking drugs by my surgeon. Knowing the side effects and long term risks of taking these drugs I was looking for an alternative natural way to treat my condition. After talking to my chiropractor and doing some research I decided to try Betaine HCL Pepsin & Gentian Root Extract by Vital Nutrients and because I trust this brand, I decided to give these a try. It has only been 4 days since I started taking these and my acid reflux is under controle. I did make some diet changes also, the biggest one being eliminating caffeine. I am really amazed how well this works.


    Pros

      It’s easy to take and it works.

    Cons

      Nothing

    I would recommend this item to a friend.

    Vital Nutrients Betaine HCL

    Betaine HCL Pepsin & Gentian Root Extract by Vital Nutrients has really helped with my age-related digestion problems, burping, etc. Be sure to take with food. It treats the problem systemically unlike most OTC products. I have been using this product for 2.5 years. It was recommended by my naturopath.


    Pros

      This product is a digestive aid and it really works well. Must be taken with a meal.

    Cons

      If you wait too long after a meal to take HCL it can cause an acidic reaction not dissimilar to indigestion itself.

    I would recommend this item to a friend.

    I didn't even buy this for Me

    I originally purchased Betaine HCL Pepsin & Gentian Root Extract by Vital Nutrients for my son. He's overweight and experiences the acid reflux and was taking way too many antacids. So, he's been taking digestive enzymes and the Betaine, Pepsin with Gentian - and has cut down on the antacids A LOT. Well, out of curiosity and after eating something spicy, I took just one because my stomach was making these crazy uneasy noises. It was amazing!!! My stomach stopped the embarrassing rumblings and it felt much less bloated!!! I will continue to use these in addition to my digestive enzymes on a daily basis. Was going to buy my own bottle - but I got the 225 capsule bottle - I think we can share for a while!!


    Pros

      It is simply amazing!!

    Cons


    I would recommend this item to a friend.

    Digestive Delight

    Betaine HCL Pepsin & Gentian Root Extract by Vital Nutrients is a delight for stomach distress caused by a lack of hydrochloric acid - a pitfall of the aging process. It has relieved the symptoms of having a sour, heavy feeling after meals. I use it daily after all meals.


    I would recommend this item to a friend.
