Betaine hydrochloride (Betaine HCL) is an acidic form of betaine, a vitamin-like substance found in grains and other foods. Betaine HCL is a supplemental source of hydrochloric acid for people who don't make enough on their own.
The acidic environment in the stomach helps to break down dietary fats and protein for better assimilation of the smaller nutritional components in the body—proteins into peptides and amino acids, fats into fatty acids.
Hydrochloric acid (HCL) helps in the digestion of fats and proteins. As we get older, the stomach’s ability to secrete HCL weakens. Lowered acidity in the stomach is a leading cause of digestive complaints. Insufficient acidity leaves undigested food particles to rot, disallowing vital nutrients to be absorbed. It also creates an environment more prone to support the proliferation of potentially harmful microorganisms.*
