Betaine HCI 180c is available by Pharmax.
Features & benefits
? Betaine HCl lowers stomach acid to aid the metabolism of proteins, increase absorption of minerals (notably calcium) and provide a barrier for entry of microorganisms into the G.I. tract
? Can be supplemented between meals
The stomach, due to its hydrochloric acid content, is a hostile environment for microbes. The acidity acts as a first line of defence against infections. Recent evidence shows that the loss of gastric acid production is generally the result of often-undiagnosed asymptomatic atrophic gastritis.
To set up a treatment program for atrophic gastritis, it may be beneficial to supplement bet ween meals to minimize re-infection. A supplement that contains pepsin may cause irritation of the lining of the stomach if taken on an empty stomach. Betaine HCl can also be supplemented with meals.
