Quantum HCL 90 (Formerly Betaine HCL)
Natural source, beet derived betaine hydrochloric acid (650mg) 90 Vcaps
Betaine hydrochloride is also known as hydrochloric acid (HCL) or stomach acid. It helps digest food by breaking up fats and proteins. The low pH of the stomach's hydrochloric acid also destroys ingested bacteris and other microorganisms. Adequate levels of HCL are necessary for adequate absorption of protein, calcium, vitamin B12 and iron.*
Healthy stomach acid is needed for a healthy digestive tract. If you have low stomach acid, even the best food cannot be properly digested. Healthy stomach acid helps kill disease-causing microbes and parasites routinely found in the food you eat. If you have low stomach acid, these infecting invaders may not be destroyed by your stomach's acid bath.*
Low stomach acid can also cause indigestion. Believe it or not, too little stomach acid is the most common cause of an acid stomach, not. Some people take antacids to relieve the uncomfortable acid feeling in their stomachs (common after eating high protein or high fat meals). But the vast majority of those with an "acid stomach" suffer from not enough acid. They simply can't digest what they've eaten. For some, an antacid may temporarily relieve a queasy stomach, but in the long run, regular use of antacids make the problem worse.* excess acid
Quantum Betaine HCL assists the body's natural stomach acids in the digestion and absorption of nutrients, especially protein, calcium, magnesium, phosphorus, iron, and B-12. Taken along with digestive enzymes (see DiamondZyme) Quantum Betaine HCL can eliminate indigestion, "queasy" stomach, and chronic heartburn.*
