Endo-met Betaine HCL and Pepsin (90 Tablets) | Endo-met Labs
Betaine HCL and Pepsin from Endo-met Labs is a supplement that contains specific nutrients required for the digestion of protein in the stomach. Hydrochloric acid is necessary to activate pepsin, the major proteolytic enzyme in the stomach. Without adequate hydrochloric acid and pepsin, protein digestion is impaired. Poor protein digestion can result in food allergies, flatulence and inadequate absorption of peptides and amino acids from the intestinal tract.
One Tablet of Endo-met Betaine HCL and Pepsin Contains:
- Thiamin (as thiamine hydrochloride) is a stimulator of hydrochloric acid production.
- Niacin is required by the secretory part of the parietal cells of the stomach for normal secretion of hydrochloric acid.
- Vitamin B6 (as pyridoxine hydrochloride)
- Betaine Hydrochloride is an analog of hydrochloric acid derived from beets, betaine HCl substitutes for inadequate stomach acid but does not prevent normal acid production.
- Pepsin N.F. is a proteolytic enzyme that begins the breakdown of peptide bonds of protein foods
Suggested Use: One tablet daily, or as directed by a physician.
How Supplied: Bottle of 90 tablets.
PRECAUTIONS WITH BETAINE HCL AND PEPSIN
If this product is administered to those having excess hydrochloric acid, it can produce symptoms of heartburn and the dose should be reduced until symptoms subside. Slow oxidizers with zinc deficiency are occasionally unable to tolerate Betaine HCL and Pepsin. When zinc is added to the program, this problem generally clears up.
DR. LAWRENCE WILSON, M.D. uses Betaine HCL as a secondary digestive aid as explained on www.drlwilson.com:
"Betaine HCL and Pepsin is a digestive aid. I much prefer GB-3, however. For the reasons why, please read the article entitled GB3. Betaine HCl and pepsin can be added as a secondary digestive aid, and is helpful in a few cases. However, it is somewhat stimulatory. Dosage: 1-1-1 or 2-2-2 with meals. Some doctors use much more, but I do not find it necessary and, in fact, prefer GB-3 most of the time. If GB-3 causes diarrhea, which it does on occasion, I prefer Enzaid over Betaine HCL and Pepsin. Dr. Eck used this product, however, so the ARL computer often recommends it."
