Betaine & Pepsin x 90 Capsules
A combination of betaine hydrochloride (assists with hydrochloric acid) and pepsin (a protein digesting enzyme) found in stomach juices.
Hydrochloric acid has a number of important functions in the stomach including:
- Supporting digestion of food.
- Creating an acidic environment for pepsin protein digesting enzyme to function.
- Assisting absorption of dietary minerals such as zinc, iron, magnesium and calcium.
- Killing pathogenic bacteria from food preventing entry into the digestive tract.
As we age, as well as at times of stress or illness, hydrochloric acid production in the stomach may decline impacting digestive function and nutrient absorption.
