Product overview
Enzymedica's Betaine HCI has been formulated with a gentle potency of protein-digestive enzymes that support a healthy digestive process. Hydrochloric acid (HCI) secretion supports protein digestion, the activation of the protein-digesting enzyme pepsin, healthy gut balance, bile flow, and pancreatic enzymes.
  • Betaine HCl supports healthy acid levels so your stomach can naturally digest properly and absorb nutrients.
  • Plant-based enzymes are added to support gentle digestion, while MucoSave®, a combination of prickly pear and olive leaf extracts, supports a healthy stomach lining.
  • Hydrochloric acid (HCl) and pepsin are essential to digestion and nutrient absorption, and without enough, gut-related issues, including occasional heartburn, may occur.
What is the natural solution?
As we age, we produce less digestive acid, which can lead to occasional heartburn and indigestion. While those with frequent heartburn may turn to antacids and acid-blocking medications, occasional heartburn sufferers have other options. Betaine HCl and Pepsin, a protein-digesting enzyme, can support those with occasional heartburn.
How is pepsin created?
Most supplements contain pepsin from porcine (pigs). Betaine HCl from Enzymedica uses a blend of fungal protease enzymes that act as pepsin, supporting the breakdown of proteins in an acidic environment, but with an entirely vegetarian approach.
Why is Betaine HCl better than other supplements?
Betaine HCl is formulated with MucoSave® to support a healthy mucosal system in the stomach. Made from extracts of prickly pear cactus (Opuntia ficus indica) and olive leaves (Olea europaea), MucoSave® supports a healthy stomach lining and acidity levels necessary for digestion.

Enzymes are the energy of life

Enzymes are needed for every chemical reaction that takes place in the human body. Every single one of us produces two types of enzymes - digestive and metabolic. Digestive enzymes are the heroes of digestion - they let you enjoy the foods that you love and get the most out of their nutrients; a lack of these enzymes can lead to food intolerance and digestive discomfort. On the other hand, metabolic enzymes catalyse and regulate every single biochemical function in the body. Each Enzymedica product is specifically formulated to provide targeted support for common digestive discomforts, food intolerances, cardiovascular health, proper immune function or healthy cytokine responses to help you find balance and be at your best.

Sometimes, your body doesn’t create enough enzymes to digest the foods you eat. Digestive enzymes can support healthier digestion and gut-related immune health. Try our award-winning enzymes to help you enjoy the foods you love!
Food sensitivities and intolerances are common and foods containing gluten, casein, dairy lactose, and phenols are frequent triggers. Food intolerances don’t have to leave you worrying with every bite. Feel the freedom of proper digestion!
Enzymes are the “energy of life.” Every organ, tissue, and cell in our body depends on the reactions of metabolic enzymes and their energy factor. Find the enzymes that are right for you and feel the Thera-blend™ difference.
Designed specifically to support your microbiome. All AquaBiome™ products are produced from sustainably sourced Peruvian Anchoveta and hero EPA, DHA, and DPA, the “missing omega”. Discover next level microbiome support!

I've suffered from a feeling of fullness after almost every meal and difficulties digesting foods for many years and my health practitioner suspected that I have too low stomach acid. This is the first supplement which has helped me feel much better!! Finally I can eat larger meals again and eat out more frequently.

I have spent 2 years with stomach issues that the gastroenterologists could not figure out, even after several scans, some of which I had to pay for out of pocket.I decided to do my own research and found that some people as we grow older, cannot produce the amount of betaine we need to digest our food properly. This works! I experience much less heartburn and stomach upset now. I usually only take one capsule with one meal and that does the trick. It seems if I take another capsule with another meal on the same day, I get some discomfort, but ymmv.


I've tried a number of Betaine HCl products. This is my favorite. I believe it helps the breakdown of my food. I have no adverse effects and plan to continue using this digestive aid. Thank you for the excellent product.

Literally the best product for my acid reflux. If my belly starts to hurt I take one of these and I feel better. I am on my 3rd bottle and will always buy this product!


It is definitely doing what it says it does, for me. Very impressed.
