Please follow these instructions for taking the following products. Do not start until you have read and understood the instructions.
1. Standard Process Betaine Hydrochloride
2. Biotics Research Betaine Plus HP or HCL plus
3. Any digestive product with Betaine HCL as a primary ingredient
Very Important: Never chew digestive support products. The acid in the product is very good for your digestion but will erode the enamel of your teeth if chewed.
The main idea is to augment the function of a tired system to enhance the absorption of nutrients. The HCL or stomach acid is essential to initiate the breakdown of food. Without enough stomach acid the rest of the digestive process is not stimulated enough to get the food broken down and into the system.
The food value goes down and the toxic load increases. Start: One(1) tablet in the middle of each meal. Do this for 1 to 2 days. Increase to 2 tablets in middle of each meal.
Do this for 1 to 2 days. Then increase to 3 tablets in the middle of each meal. Do this for 1 to 2 days. You should not experience any heartburn or upset tummy with this protocol. if you do….stop taking the product for that day.
The next day start again with 1 tablet in the middle of the meal. The idea is to take an increasing dose of the product in per meal until you experience some mild stomach heartburn. That is the indicator that you are taking just a little too much HCL.
You should reduce the dose by one or two tablets at the next meal. At that meal you should have no symptoms. You want to take enough to maximize digestion but not so much that you get heartburn. Is this clear??
If you have questions, stop taking the supplement until you talk to me, OK?
