Betaine HCL


Suitable for Vegetarians


Higher Nature Betaine HCL is a stomach acid supplement to aid digestion, prevent bloating, gas, acid reflux and heartburn.

Proteins such as cheese, beans, steaks and other meats can be hard to digest. The stomach makes hydrochloric acid to help us digest protein, but when we are rushing or as we grow older, a Betaine HCl supplement taken with meals may be of value. Betaine HCL provides a natural source to take with meals or just before a meal when appropriate.

The increase in hydrochloric acid helps to break down hard to digest protein rich foods such as meat and pulses which prevents the stagnation of these foods that may result in constipation and other digestive problems including reflux and hyperacidity . Incomplete digestion is also linked to non specific allergies.

A hydrochloric acid supplement, betaine hydrochloride is the acidic form of Tri-Methyl Glycine (TMG).

Benefits of Betaine HCL for the stomach:

  • Providing the delivery form of hydrochloric acid, essential for digestion
  • Levels of stomach acid naturally decline with age or with busy lifestyles
  • Low levels can cause discomfort and bloating
  • Provides a natural source of HCL
  • HCL is needed for adequate vitamin B12 absorption

Dosage: Take 1-3 Betaine HCl capsules, immediately before or during a meal.

Does not contain salt, wheat, gluten, maize/corn, yeast, lactose, dairy products, artificial preservatives, colours or flavourings. Vegetarian and vegan.


Not suitable for individuals with history of gastritis or stomach ulcers


One capsule typically provides: 300mg Betaine hydrochloride.
