Betaine HCl + Broad Spectrum Enzymes
Nutrigest is a potent combination of hydrochloric acid (HCl) and digestive enzymes to help support digestion in the stomach and small intestine. As we age and in acute or chronic illness, our bodies produce less HCl, necessary to denature proteins and begin the digestive process. HCl production also maintains a low pH in the stomach, thereby performing a vital role in supporting immune function. Enzymes are necessary for the complete breakdown of carbohydrate, fat and protein molecules.
Hydrochloric acid (HCl) denatures dietary proteins and facilitates the digestive action of enzymes. HCl also stimulates the pancreas to secrete more digestive enzymes when released into the duodenum from the stomach.
Protease supports the breakdown of protein, amylase supports the breakdown of carbohydrates and lipase supports the breakdown of fat.
Contains the amino acids glycine and taurine which are conjugated to bile acids in the liver, thereby aiding lipid metabolism and absorption.
