What Experts Say
Betaine hydrochloride is an acidic form of betaine, a vitamin-like substance found in beets and plants. Some doctors recommend it as a supplemental source of hydrochloric acid for people who are deficient in stomach acid.*
Pepsin is the main digestive enzyme in the stomach. It further aids in the digestion of protein, turning them into polypeptides (short-chain amino acids that form protein molecules).*
This digestive enzyme — produced in the pancreas, mouth and stomach — helps break down dietary fats so the intestines can easily absorb them. It also allows nutrients and waste to move through cellular walls.*
The digestive enzyme amylase, found in saliva and pancreatic fluid, helps convert starch and glycogen into simple sugars.*
Protease Peptidase Complex with Exopeptidase and DPP-IV Activity
Digestive enzymes found in the pancreas and the stomach that help break down proteins into amino acids, which the body uses for energy. They also play a vital role in blood clotting and cell division.*
A digestive enzyme found in the small intestine of humans and other mammals. It's essential to the complete digestion of whole milk, as it breaks down lactose, a sugar which gives milk its sweetness.*
This digestive enzyme is a key to bone health.* Commonly found in plant material, it helps break down grains, legumes, seeds and corn.

I have been struggling with bloating and burping for as long as I can remember, which is something I've been trying to solve over the years. I also experienced the occasional heartburn, so I was ready to try something for healing and relief. Upon the first time of taking this, my bloating and burping went away, and the heart burn has stayed away! Wish I'd have tried enzymes sooner!

This has changed my life!
I’m amazed. I struggle with acid reflux and have had months where I throw up excessively. I’ve been on Omeprazole since March because it is the *only* thing that has helped me. Since March, I’ve been trying to ease myself off of it because it’s not a good medication long term and it doesn’t actually heal the cause. Cue Black Friday: I’ve been taking this supplement for a week and have been off Omeprazole since, have had regular bathroom schedule since taking it (never been a thing for me), and have not thrown up or had any acid reflux. This product is absolutely worth it. I usually can’t go 6 hours without Omeprazole. I have not had it in a week now!
Thank you for the amazing testimony, Kelsey! We are so glad our HCI + Enzymes are working so wonderfully for you! Our HCI helps to promote the production of stomach acids, supports the digestion of proteins, and helps to promote a healthy gut! Thank you so much for the 5 star review and take care! :)
It works for me.
I take it in my last meal with some good fat (coconut/olive oil) and it helps me go to the bathroom .
This is great news!! HCI + Enzymes helps to trigger critical digestive activities, like releasing pancreatic enzymes and bile to break down food into smaller particles, which are more easily converted and assimilated into useful nutrients in your intestines. We are glad to hear it's helping you!
