Betaine HCI w/ Fenugreek
-Betaine hydrochloride increases stomach acid to enhance digestion. HCl assists
in protein digestion by activating pepsinogen to pepsin, renders the stomach
sterile against orally-ingested pathogens, prevents bacterial or fungal
overgrowth of the small intestine, encourages the flow of bile and pancreatic
enzymes, and facilitates the absorption of several nutrients including folic
acid, ascorbic acid, beta-carotene, non-heme iron and some forms of calcium,
magnesium and zinc. However, in the absence of adequate HCl, poor digestion can
arise leading to bloating, belching, indigestion, and diarrhea or constipation.
Numerous studies have shown acid secretion declines with advancing age and
impaired HCl production and secretion is correlated with a variety of clinical
conditions, including food allergies, asthma, diabetes, thyroid disorders,
osteoporosis and arthritis. While the underlying etiological factors leading to
impaired or absent HCl secretion are not well understood, long term
supplementation is generally safe and may be effective in certain patient
populations and clinical conditions. Combining betaine HCl with fenugreek
further supports digestive function and health, as fenugreek seeds are an
excellent source of mucilage, which helps soothe gastrointestinal inflammation
by coating the lining of the stomach and intestine.

Individuals suffering from peptic ulcer disease (PUD) or diseases that cause
excessive secretion of gastric acid, such as Zollinger-Ellison Syndrome, may
experience irritation or reduced healing of ulcers due to the hydrochloric acid
in Betaine HCl. Consult a health care practitioner prior to use. Theoretically,
patients who are allergic to plants of the Fabaceae family, including soybeans,
peanuts, chickpeas and green peas, might also be allergic to fenugreek.6 Keep
out of reach of children.
Fenugreek might have additive effects when used with anticoagulant or
antiplatelet drugs, although this may not be clinically significant.7, 8
Fenugreek may reduce blood glucose levels and may be additive to antidiabetes
drugs. Monitor blood glucose levels closely.
