Betaine & Pepsin provides essential support for healthy digestion by supplying two key components - hydrochloric acid (HCl) and the digestive enzyme pepsin.

Hydrochloric acid is vital for proper digestion of dietary proteins as well as absorption of important vitamins and minerals like vitamin B12, calcium, magnesium, copper, and zinc. It also plays a crucial role in signaling the pancreas to release other digestive enzymes.

Pepsin is one of the first enzymes involved in initiating protein digestion. It works synergistically with HCl to break down proteins into smaller peptides, allowing for complete protein digestion.

Maintaining adequate levels of stomach acid (HCl) is fundamental for optimizing protein digestion, nutrient availability, and a healthy balance of gut bacteria. However, stomach acid levels can decline with age or from the use of acid-reducing medications, leading to impaired digestion and nutrient malabsorption.

Betaine & Pepsin supplies 1,040 mg of betaine HCl USP and 208 mg of pepsin per serving to replenish stomach acid and pepsin levels. This supports:

  • Improved breakdown and absorption of dietary proteins
  • Enhanced absorption of essential vitamins and minerals
  • Signaling for release of other digestive enzymes
  • Maintenance of beneficial gastric pH and gut flora balance

By supporting gastric acid and enzyme levels, Betaine & Pepsin helps promote overall healthy digestion, maximizing nutrient extraction from foods for better nutritional status and gastrointestinal health.
