Like betaine anhydrous, betaine hydrochloride has a chemical structure which can be likened to that of choline, and it is a form of glycine which has gone through the process of trimethylization. This type of chemical must be industrially manufactured and synthesized meaning it is not a substance that can be found naturally as with many other supplements. It is a combination of the more commonly found betaine as well as hydrocholoric acid. Betaine is a byproduct that is obtained during the metabolism of choline in the body and it can also be naturally found is different foods such as wheat, sugar beets, spinach, and other sources rich in protein. HCL is found naturally within the stomach and is a gastric acid used to help break down of proteins while protecting the intestines from erosion and disease caused by bacteria. Because of its acidic content and the fact that it is partially derived from an acid present in the gastrointestinal tract, this makes it a perfect candidate of a supplement to support digestive aid. In fact betaine HCL applies an additional amount of HCL which can be further utilized during the digestive process to help break down proteins. This makes betaine HCL an ideal supplement for anyone with frequent indigestion issues.
