Additional Directions For Use of BetaZyme:
When first using BetaZyme please be sure to follow the directions carefully. Always take BetaZyme at the start of the meal, if taken without food, sensation of stomach burning may result.
At the very start of the meal, take one capsule of BetaZyme and monitor how your stomach feels during and after eating. Should any burning or heaviness occur, or if burning has been present previously and is now worsened with the use of the BetaZyme, discontinue. This is an indication that your stomach lining may be damaged and you should use Power Cleanse and Lean Greens by Nutritional Frontiers.
If the first dose of BetaZyme produced no noticeable stomach discomfort, try taking two capsules at the start of your next meal, again monitor for burning and or heaviness during and after eating. If taking two capsules produces some discomfort, but one capsule does not, restrict yourself to one capsule at the start of each meal. If the two capsule dose produces no discomfort, try three capsules at the start of your next meal.
If all goes well when taking three capsules at the start of each meal, stay with that dosage, most individuals will not require increasing the dosage to four capsules. Regular use of BetaZyme will in most cases “re-train” the stomach to produce higher concentrations of acid on its own. This process may take anywhere from several weeks to several months, depending on the individual. The most significant indication that acid production is improving is that BetaZyme can no longer be comfortably tolerated.
Warning: If you are pregnant or nursing, consult your healthcare practitioner before taking this or any nutritional product.

Many individuals assume that heartburn, indigestion, gas, and reflux are caused by overproduction of stomach acid. This common misconception has been strongly reinforced by our conventional medical profession, whose practitioners routinely prescribe stomach acid blocking medications at the slightest sign of stomach dysfunction, often neglecting to provide patients with dietary recommendations.
The Symptoms of Over and Under Production Are the Same
Strangely enough, the symptoms of stomach acid (hydrochloric acid, HCL) over-production and under production are virtually identical. It is therefore unwise to jump to conclusions regarding what’s occurring in the stomach without actual testing.
About the Ingredients:
Betaine HCL provides a source of hydrochloric acid, which is not considered a digestive enzyme, but is necessary for the proper functioning of enzymes. Due to the over utilization of antacids, medications, lack of fiber, too much sugar, alcohol, fast foods and processed foods, many people are suffering from symptoms of low stomach acid. These symptoms may include bloating, gas, pain, yeast infections, skin conditions including acne rosaeca, constipation and diarrhea.
Pancreatin is a combination of the digestive enzymes including lipase, amylase and protease. These enzymes are normally produced by the pancreas and are important in the digestion of fats, starches and proteins. Pancreatin is used to replace digestive enzymes which the pancreas does not produce on its own. Certain medical conditions and medications contribute to the lack of enzyme production including pancreatic surgery, inflammation of the pancreas, pancreatic cancer and cystic fibrosis.
Pepsin and Glutamic Acid are needed in order to break down proteins into polypeptides. Those who take over-the-counter or prescription antacids actually may be doing more harm than good in that they may be hindering part of the digestive process. Additionally, it is thought that some food allergies, especially dairy and wheat are related to partially digested proteins passing through the intestinal wall. Since antacids decrease the effectiveness of pepsin, thereby increasing the number of partially digested proteins that can pass through to the intestine, it may be that antacids actually may increase the risk of food allergy development.
Oxbile is excreted by the liver and stored in the gallbladder until needed to assist in digestion of lipids, or fats. Bile salts, which are the active components of the bile, assist in breaking down cholesterol and other fat components in the intestines. Supplemental bile extract helps emulsify fats and promotes absorption of fat-soluble vitamins such as vitamins K, A, D and E. A deficiency of bile production, or decreased excretion of bile by the gallbladder can lead to gallstones. These gallstones are formed from various combinations of cholesterol, concentrated bile, minerals and pigments.
Gentian Root Extract has the ability to stimulate the appetite, stimulate the secretion of saliva and gastric juices, and accelerate the emptying of the stomach. Gentian was very effective in relieving the symptoms of indigestion and heartburn in human subjects. Gentian root has also been shown to reflexively stimulate the gallbladder and pancreas, and mucous membranes of the stomach, thus contributing to an increased secretion of digestive juices and enzymes.
