Situations such as illness, gall bladder removal, overuse of antacids, and normal aging can contribute to insufficient secretion of stomach acid, pancreatic enzymes, and bile, and can adversely affect digestive enzyme activity and lead to occasional heartburn, gas, bloating, and other forms of gastrointestinal discomfort. Numerous studies have shown hydrochloric acid secretion in the stomach declines with advancing age. Betaine HCL & Pepsin can optimize stomach acidity, promote protein digestion and decrease symptoms of occasional heartburn.
Suggested Use: Take 1-2 capsules with each meal.
