Product Overview

  • Often people will have a hard time digesting food because of a lack of stomach acid to break it down, in which case using a supplement to increase stomach acid production may be of benefit to your digestion. Stomach acid helps break down the food into smaller pieces, making it easier to pass through the digestive system. 
  • Some classic symptoms of poor digestion would be gas, bloating, stomach aches, and intestinal infections, which could all be a sign of low stomach acid levels. 
  • If you are travelling or going abroad, then you may be unsure of the food quality, and as such a supplement with HCl could be of benefit to you because it will help digest that food easier by assimilating it. 

Key Ingredients and Benefits

  • Designs for Health have included Betaine HCl as one of the two ingredients in this supplement. Betaine HCl will help produce stomach acid which digests and breaks down food in the stomach, so if you do not produce enough stomach acid then this will increase to levels which are sufficient to improve your digestion. 
  • Pepsin is the other ingredient, this will specifically breakdown proteins, so if you follow a higher protein diet or if you notice you struggle to digest certain high protein foods, then the Pepsin will be able to break these proteins down better to help them pass the stomach with less difficulty. 

Recommended Usage and Guidelines

The recommended dose is 1 capsule, but this will ultimately vary on your individual digestion.  It is best to take this before a meal in order to increase the stomach acid to break down the food. As with anything, consult your practitioner to get the best advice for yourself. *Do not take if you have a stomach ulcer or gastritis.
