More specifically, you want help with What is Betaine HCL? (And How to Use It)?
I wanted to talk about this ingredient called betaine hydrochloride what is it I have this in my digest formula and a lot of people keep asking like what is it and what is it doing it’s basically a natural compound it’s a natural amino acid found in beets spinach beef and shrimp it’s in other foods as well it was originally found in beets and that’s why they call it B team or a betaine okay hydrochloride but it’s a combination of betaine and hydrochloric acid really really really important if you have SIBO small intestinal bacterial overgrowth because because one of the functions of this strong acid in the stomach is to prevent pathogens and unfriendly microbes from going from the stomach through the stomach into the small intestine so very important so what this ingredient is meant to do is increase the acid in your stomach and when I say increase the acid and talking about lowering the pH the lower the pH the more acidic and the stomach pH should be between one 1.5 and 3 which is extremely low and extremely acidic that’s going to improve the absorption of vitamin b12 minerals trace minerals and protein what the acid does if it hits this this level right here is it activates a very powerful protease which is a enzyme that breaks down proteins thereby breaking down protein into amino acids and if you don’t have a strong pH you will get undigested proteins and that creates a big problem and then also we talked about this it kills pathogens so anything that you’re eating that’s a pathogen that’s kind that goes in the stomach should be killed in this ph right here so it’s going to protect you there’s even a condition that you can look up called hypo chloride riah that’s basically low stomach acids it’s actually very common in anyone over the age of 50 and at each decade that you age you actually have a lower amount of stomach acid what’s fascinating is if you look this up on Wikipedia you’ll see the first symptom is GERD gastroesophageal reflux disorder which basically is a fancy word for heartburn and this is the confusion you have heartburn but under low stomach acids low stomach acids cause heartburn they do because unless you have a really acidic stomach you’re not going to be able to close the valve on top of the stomach and the acid is going to splash up into the esophagus and burn that area and irritate it so this remedy is really good for GERD okay and acid reflux make sure that you don’t take calcium at the same time as you take this because it kind of will neutralize the acid I recommend taking this before the meal and a lot of times you would need quite a bit like maybe five six tablets before the meal and then you can start eating it’ll assist in making more acid and it does take some time to build up because potato chloride is not like extremely acid it just gives you the building blocks for your own body to make more acid to the point where it’s made enough acid and then you don’t need any more of this so it’s kind it’s not a long-term product the other point I want to bring up is antibiotics and two acids tend to destroy the stomach acid making you more dependent on more medication and more antibiotics alright there you have it that’s what betaine hydrochloride is thanks for watching if you’re liking this content please subscribe now and I will actually keep you updated on future videos

Dr. Berg explains what Betaine Hydrochloride is and how to use it. It is a natural compounds or a natural amino acid found in beets, spinach, beef and shrimp. It is really important when you have a condition called SIBO or small intestinal bacterial overgrowth because one of the functions of the strong stomach acid is to prevent pathogens and unfriendly microbes.
Betaine HCL is used to increase the acid of the stomach to improve the absorption of vitamin B12, minerals, trace minerals, proteins and kills pathogens. It is also a great remedy for GERD and acid reflux. Make sure to not take calcium at the same time while taking Betaine HCL because it will neutralize the acid.
