Why choose Metagest®?

Metagest® is a high strength specialist product providing betaine HCl, which, once broken down in the stomach releases hydrochloric acid. Our body's ability to produce stomach acid decreases as we age or in times of stress, which may lead to digestive discomfort. Supplementing with betaine HCl can help support the required acidity levels in the stomach for effective digestion of proteins and carbohydrates which is required for the body to use key nutrients.

Supplementing with betaine HCl can help support healthy levels of acidity in the stomach and avoid digestive discomfort.

Why is an acidic environment important in the stomach?

The stomach produces hydrochloric acid naturally, to keep the cotents acidic. This acidic environment is needed to activate the enzymes needed for effective digestion, but also for ensuring that harmful pathogens such as microbes, yeasts and viruses that enter the body are destroyed. An acidic environment also allows vitamin B12 to be liberated from food, and for proper absorption of minerals from food. Low stomach acid can lead to the malabsorption of nutrients, including protein, other vitamins and minerals, especially vitamin B12 and iron.

May 2022
Metagest has had a reformulation.  Due to the impact of upcoming changes to the import of products containing animal ingredients, we have decided to remove pepsin from this product. This means this product is now suitable for vegetarians and vegans. We have also chosen to encapsulate this formula, rather than tablet it, so you will see that the total amount of betaine HCl has reduced slightly from 650mg to 520mg. With this product as a capsule, rather than a tablet, we have been able to reduce the number of excipients use.

Please note this reformulation only applies to the 90 tablets. 180 tablets formula has not changed, and is not suitable for vegetarians and vegans.

Nutri Advanced supplements should not be used as a substitute for a varied diet and healthy lifestyle. Results may vary between individuals.
