Renew Life DigestMORE HCl Details

What is it and what is it for?

Do you suffer from heartburn? Low stomach acid may be the issue! DigestMORE HCl is a powerful blend of digestive enzymes with added betaine hydrochloride. It works to ensure proper breakdown of food while at the same time, increasing the level of stomach acid in the body. This can also protect from parasites when travelling or eating foods like sushi.

Detailed Description

DigestMORE HCl is a comprehensive digestive enzyme formula that contains Betaine Hydrochloride (HCl) and butyric acid. DigestMORE HCl is helpful for those who suffer from heartburn caused by low stomach acid. It can also be used by those who are concerned about accidental ingestion of bacteria or parasites when traveling or eating out at restaurants.

A majority of people with heartburn do not produce enough stomach acid.   Normally, the stomach is a sterile environment due to its acidic nature. If there is a lack of hydrochloric acid (HCl) in the stomach, it is no longer a sterile environment and bacteria are able to proliferate.

These bacteria will putrefy food in the stomach, releasing volatile fatty acids and gases. These gases cause bloating after meals, and it is these volatile fatty acids and stomach acid being forced up into the esophagus that causes heartburn. By ensuring adequate levels of hydrochloric acid in the stomach, especially at meal times, the underlying cause of most heartburn can be addressed.

DigestMORE HCl can be helpful if:

  • You experience heartburn after any sized meal
  • You have gas or bloating and experience accompanying heartburn after eating specific types of food (i.e. proteins) or after combining certain types of foods (i.e. mixing proteins and carbohydrates)
  • You are concerned about ingesting bacteria or parasites with your food (i.e. when traveling or eating out at restaurants e.g. sushi)

The long term solution for eliminating heartburn (in those who do not produce enough stomach acid) is to ensure that the stomach is a sterile environment and to ensure food is easily broken down. Taking DigestMORE HCl with meals helps with both of these issues.

Renew Life DigestMORE HCI FAQ

What is DigestMORE HCl?

DigestMORE HCI is a comprehensive digestive enzyme formula that contains Betaine Hydrochloride (HCI).

How is it delivered?

DigestMORE HCI contains powdered enzymes, betaine hydrochloride and butyric acid.

What does it do?

DigestMORE HCI has 2 functions:

  1. It provides HCI (stomach acid) for those who do not produce enough. This helps to combat acid reflux for many heartburn suffers.
  2. It works to break down food products into their smallest usable components (nutrients). This allows the body to absorb the maximum amount of nutrients from your meal, leaving little food left over for ‘bad’ intestinal bacteria to survive on.

How does it work?

DigestMORE HCl can be helpful for those who suffer from heartburn. Many people with heartburn do not produce enough Hydrochloric acid (HCl). If there is a lack of HCl, then the stomach is not a sterile environment, and bacteria are able to proliferate. These bacteria will putrefy food in the stomach, releasing volatile fatty acids and gases. These gases cause bloating after meals, and it is actually the bacteria’s and stomach acid coming up into the esophagus which are causing heartburn. The long term solution for helping to eliminate heartburn in those who do not produce enough stomach acid is to take DigestMORE HCl as it has both hydrochloric acid and digestive enzymes.

Digestive enzymes are catalysts for chemical reactions within the body. Without them, food is not broken down properly. Many people do not produce enough enzymes, therefore they are unable to absorb all of the nutrients from the food they are eating. This leads to symptoms such as gas, bloating, heartburn, constipation, and is the first step towards more chronic disease. DigestMORE HCl contains enzymes which address every type of food group including; proteins, fats, carbohydrates, dairy, plant and vegetable material (cellulose), and sugars. This combination of enzymes functions under the whole range of gastric pH’s from 2-14.

DigestMORE HCl also includes the enzymes Cellulase and Phytase. Phytase works to break down harmful phytates, which can cause malabsorption. Phytates are found in seeds, grains, and beans. Phytates have been shown in clinical studies to block the absorption of many minerals, especially calcium. This can be problematic for vegetarians, as these foods are staples in their diet. By breaking down phytates, DigestMORE HCl eliminates this problem. Cellulase, which the human body is unable to produce, breaks down plant fibres that cause bloating and gas in many people. If undigested foods reach the large intestine, it becomes food for the “bad” bacteria and parasites in your intestinal tract. These “bad” bacteria will putrefy the undigested food, releasing volatile fatty acids and gasses. These gases cause bloating and often foul smelling gas after meals. If you provide your body with enough enzymes to break down all of your food, then the “bad” bacteria will have nothing to eat, and bloating and gas diminish.

What can I expect?

DigestMORE HCl works to help prevent acid reflux (heartburn) in those with low stomach acid. In some cases, you may also notice more energy as you begin to absorb more nutrients from your diet.



After switching to a healthier way of eating and to support my goals to compete in Figure, protein intake increased a lot as did the amount of times meals were eaten in a day. I found my digestion was definitely suffering and a friend suggested digestive enzymes. I tried numberous kinds and none seemed to make much of a difference. As soon as I tried Digest More HCL, my digestion improved almost immediately. I not only felt direct digestive improvements but the positive effects were obvious in other ways; improved energy levels, concentration and, most definitely, improved body composition. I have been using them for over 3 years now and they will always be an important part of my supplement regime, year round. Thank you so much for making such a great product, Renew Life!

It Works

I recently decided to get off of my 10 years of being on antacids. I have been feeling very tired and having such a hard time losing weight. I bloat after eating and get very bad heart burn. I decided to go to our local health food store and was turned to Digest More HCl. I so far have not had to take any heartburn medication. I also tried the seven day Rapid Cleanse. I felt very good after I was done. I felt very evened out both physically and mentally. I will continue to take the Digest More HCl and in January I am due for another cleanse. I have low blood pressure and this is helping me boost my energy level. I plan on sticking with this regimen and maybe I will give you a follow up in a month.

You are amazing! - Part II

I just wanted to give you some updates, as promised, about how (once again!!) Renew Life has helped my progression to my brand new healthy lifestyle. After the Level 1 Ontario Physique Association show in November I had a 3 month off season. During that time I used your Cleanse Smart 30 day cleanse (along with the oil smart with DHA)and again I’ll tell you how wonderful I felt afterwards! I also switched to the Digest More HCI digestive enzymes and found that they worked amazingly well for me! I competed in the level 2 show on just this passed May 24th and placed 2nd!!! I now qualify for the Provincials on June 21st (less than a week:) ) level 3 of the 3 tier system. I am so excited and I wanted to let you know how once again you have helped me with my new lifestyle that I am so in love with. You can bet that when anyone asks about my supplements I still will never hesitate to tell them about your products. I will definitely be cleansing again after this show too! You are so great. It’s so amazing to see with all the companies pushing products not thinking about our health that there’s still people like you who care about the wellbeing of the world. You are great:)

  • 8.2/10  Solid enzyme

    By Brandi on Wednesday, May 6, 2020 06:32 AM

    Effectiveness: 8/10

    (+) Convenient,Easy To Take,First Dose Results,Good Value,Quickens Recovery Time
    (-) Hasn't always been effective

    How did you use it?:Everyday

    "I started a vegetarian diet 5 months ago and almost stopped because certain high protein veggies were really messing with my stomach... particularly chick peas and beans. I started using this enzyme and it has definitely helped... sometimes no gas or bloating at all. Sometimes I find it doesn't work though and I have suffered terribly after food like vegetarian chili. But mostly, I use this right when I have my first bite and it generally helps. After seeing the other products this line offers, I wonder if they have a better product for my particular problems and I will absolutely try the other things they offer as well. I have a very sensitive stomach so I'm impressed that this works at all."
