Frequently Asked Questions about Triple HCL

Frequently Asked Questions about Triple HCL

In this article we ask THERA Nordic founder and renowned supplement formulator, Joni Laiho, some of the most commonly asked questions about our gut health product Triple HCL

Are there scientific studies that show the benefits of taking Triple HCL?

The stomach needs to be a very acidic environment in order to absorb proteins and other nutrients and kill harmful bacteria. The level of gastric acid declines as we age, or due to illness or chronic stress.

There are studies showing that Betaine HCL is an effective and well-tolerated method of bringing the acidity of stomach down to the effective level. Added pepsin enzyme reinforces our own pepsin in breaking down proteins.

In Triple HCL there is also Yellow Gentian extract, which is is much more on the traditional side and has 3000 years of history in use as a digestive aid. Our digestive tract has receptors located throughout which are stimulated by bitter tasting herbs. This stimulates the excretion of bile acids for better digestion.
