Take 1 capsule with each meal, or as recommended by a healthcare professional.
A complete formula supplementing hydrochloric acid deficiency and restoring normal pH of the stomach. The supplement should be taken with meals rich in proteins. The recommended dosage is 1 capsule with a meal containing proteins.
The level of hydrochloric acid deficiency is an individual matter; it can be determined by a test after which you can decide on a dosage perfect for you. In that situation, it is recommended to start the therapy with 1 capsule and increase the dosage gradually, adding another capsule to the next meal, until the symptoms of hyperacidity occur (a burning sensation in your chest, burping). Subtracting 1 capsule from the number of capsules that caused the above-described symptoms will give the right dosage for your individual needs.
Do not use the product in the case of a stomach ulcer.
Dietary supplement complementary to a diet for athletes. It can not be used as an alternative or substitute for a varied diet. It can not be used as an alternative or substitute for a varied diet. Do not exceed the recommended daily intake. Best before: the expiry date on the bottom or side of the packaging (min. 3 months of shelf-life). Should not be administered to nursing mothers and pregnant women. Keep in dry and dark place, at room temperature not exceeding 25°C, and away from children.
Betaine HCl - betaine hydrochloride, a highly bioavailable form of trimethylglycine. As the name suggests, TMG constitutes a derivative of the protein amino acid glycine, enriched in three methyl groups. It naturally appears in the roots of red beet. It demonstrates a wide influence on the human organism and is willingly used in supplementation.
Betaine constitutes one of the elements of methylation process as a donor for methyl groups in the reduction reaction of homocysteine to methionine, positively influences the level of S-adenosylmethionine in the system and is conducive to the activation of folates. In this way, it holistically influences proper energy metabolism in the organism and has positive influence on maintaining proper mental functions (by the promotion of SAMe concentration in the organism). Research suggests that it may be directly used in order to decrease the level of homocysteine in people who note its excessive concentrations.
Moreover, trimethylglycine has osmotic properties and increases hydration of cells. This has positive influence on their metabolism and may promote efficiency of their work. In relation to myocytes, this activity is similar to the activity of creatine and is indicated as a probable mechanism of promoting the efficiency of skeletal muscles, as a result of supplementation with betaine. This scope of activity of TMG, however, is still under research - scientists are looking for further mechanisms responsible for the stimulation of effort abilities resulting from supplementation with betaine.
The supplements containing betaine hydrochloride are also used by people with stomach achlorhydria in order to decrease pH of stomach juice. The key role is played here by acid radical of this compound. Therefore, people who deal with hyperacidity should be especially careful with supplementation of this form of trimethylglycine.
Pepsin - the proteolytic enzyme of gastric juice, which is produced of the pepsinogen, secreted gastric mucosa. This reaction occurs only in an acidic environment. Pepsin is responsible for the initial stage of digestion of proteins, and thus breaking them into smaller molecules - polypeptides and oligopeptides, which are degraded into separate amino acids during the further digestive process. Insufficient amount of enzyme leads to disruption of protein digestion process. Supplementation with pepsin not only leads to a proper amount of this component, but also is directly stimulating the endogenous conversion of pepsinogen to pepsin and therefore operates two separate pathways.
