Description

Doctor's Best Betaine HCL Pepsin & Gentian Bitters may support the stomach’s digestive capacity and optimises digestive efficiency. Betaine HCL may support the stomach's digestive capacity by decreasing gastric pH. Pepsin is an enzyme produced by the body to digest protein-containing foods in the stomach. Pepsin works in conjunction with stomach acid to support protein digestion. Gentian is an herb used to optimise digestive capacity. Its bitter nature may help to stimulate the body's production of digestive enzymes.

How Does It Work?
Betaine HCL is the HCL form of Betaine hydrochloride used as a nutrient to supplement the stomach’s own production of hydrochloric acid, or stomach acid. Stomach acid is normally produced by the parietal cells of the stomach and the function of stomach acid is to break down food that enters the stomach into smaller fragments and nutrient components. Betaine HCL has been shown to lower gastric pH which could potentially aid in the absorption of nutrients during a period of hypochlorhydria, or a lack of stomach acid. Gentian is an herb that is native to parts of Europe and Asia. The root has been used extensively by traditional herbalists to support digestive function due in large part to its bitter constituents. Various traditional texts classify gentian as a bitter tonic and digestive stimulant, due to its ability to promote the secretion of digestive enzymes. Gentian has been shown to stimulate gastric secretions, as well as promote cholereic activity.

Research suggests that the body’s capacity to produce stomach acid normally declines as we age. Stress and other factors may impact on stomach acid production as well. At the junction of the oesophagus and the stomach is the lower oesophageal sphincter (LES). The LES contracts when food enters the stomach and prevents back-flow. A major trigger for this process of tightening the sphincter is the presence of stomach acid.
