The stomach is largely responsible for the digestion of proteins and the conversion of minerals into an absorbable state. The stomach secretes gastric acid, hydrochloric acid (HCL) and various hormones and enzymes. Gastric acid secretions decrease with age and low gastric acid, or hypochlorhydria, is associated with many diseases and symptoms of disease. This is not surprising, as poor or insufficient digestion leads to nutrient deficiencies, poor elimination and toxic overload.
Betaine HCI: Increases the acidity of the stomach so the protein digesting enzyme, pepsin can be activated.
Pepsin: Breaks down protein into smaller units (polypeptides) in the stomach, preparing them for further breakdown and absorption in the small intestine.
Protease: Is an enzyme released by the pancreas into the small intestine for the digestion of proteins.
Glutamic Acid: An amino acid that has been shown to be important for the integrity of the mucosal lining of the stomach.  Glutamic acid has been used therapeutically to treat peptic ulcers.


Adults take 1-4 capsules daily with each main meal, or as professionally prescribed.


Not to be taken by those using anti-inflammatories, aspirin, corticosteroids or those with a peptic ulcer.

Each Capsule Contains:

Betaine HCI 300mg
Pepsin 75mg
Protease 50mg
Glutamic acid 75mg

A positive for these capsules. I have been taking an anti-acid pill for a couple of years to help with an upset stomach after drinking full milk or anything pastry. I had read that these types of pills reduce your nutrient intake so I looked for something more natural. These capsules give me relief if I take them immediately after eating. They settle my stomach and now after a few weeks of taking them I find that I have to just take 1 pill as maintenance with my 3 main meals. More than happy with this product. Thank you Healthpost for the reasonable price too and always very quick delivery :)

I have tried other digestive enzymes which gave me headaches. HCL has been super for my digestion. My nausea went away almost instantly and whats even better is this is the most affordable version of HCL I have found so I will constantly be ordering this one.

As directed by my health practitioner, I was advised to get some HCI due to my extreme nausea & bloating ever time I ate. I started using this at ever meal for 4 months, my bowls started to be more regular and the nausea went away. I dont need it so much anymore but have it on hand when I have steak for dinner!

Find this product very beneficial for belching due to poor digestion - better than HCI on its own
