Betaine HCL & Pepsin


Product Description

Supports individuals with occasional indigestion*

Betaine HCl & Pepsin supports healthy stomach acidity and the process of protein digestion, and enzyme activity.

Indigestion affects millions of people every day and it can be caused by many different things. For some, it's brought on by eating fatty foods. For others, simple carbohydrates (like bread and pasta) can cause gas and bloating. And for other individuals, spicy foods can cause them grief. Although what we eat greatly influences the frequency and severity of indigestion, this discomfort could also be related to an underlying problem – low hydrochloric acid (HCl) content in the stomach.

It is well known that as we age, we often produce less hydrochloric acid (HCl) in the stomach. Situations such as illness, gall bladder removal, overuse of antacids, and normal aging can contribute to insufficient secretion of stomach acid, which can adversely affect digestive enzyme activity and lead to occasional indigestion, gas, bloating, and other forms of gastrointestinal discomfort.*

HCl secretion in the stomach assists in protein digestion by activating pepsinogen to pepsin.   Hydrochloric acid also facilitates the absorption of a number of nutrients, including folate, vitamin B12, ascorbic acid, beta-carotene, iron, and some forms of calcium, magnesium, and zinc.* Thorne's Betaine HCl & Pepsin comes from a porcine source. To ensure optimal digestion, an individual should make sure to have adequate HCl content in the stomach.*
