  • Your body uses the protein in your diet to repair and create new cells. Hydrochloric acid and an enzyme called pepsin—both of which are produced in your stomach—act together to break down protein into smaller units called polypeptides. Polypeptides then pass into your small intestines‚ where they are further broken down into amino acids for absorption.

    Hydrochloric acid not only breaks down protein‚ but also activates the formation of pepsin from its precursor enzyme‚ pepsinogen. Pepsinogen is secreted by certain cells in the lining of the stomach. Stomach acidity keeps harmful bacteria in check‚ and helps you absorb iron and vitamin B-12.

    Conditions that interfere with your stomach’s ability to secrete hydrochloric acid and produce enough pepsin make it hard to digest dietary proteins. People who have problems digesting protein often have symptoms of indigestion‚ such as heartburn. Absorption of proteins that are not adequately broken down first can also cause you to form antibodies to those proteins‚ therefore possibly developing food allergies and limiting your diet. Aging‚ medications like antacids and Prilosec (omeprazole)‚ surgery‚ and stomach ulcers are factors that can interfere with your stomach’s acidity. Not being able to digest and absorb proteins can cause you to develop malnutrition‚ which can be fatal.

    Thorne Research’s Betaine HCl & Pepsin is a supplement that can benefit people who have symptoms of indigestion that are related to their difficulty digesting proteins due to deficiencies in hydrochloric acid and pepsin stomach. Each vegetarian capsule contains:

    • Betaine (as Betaine Hydrochloride)‚ which acidifies the stomach to promote the digestion of protein. It also supports the absorption of iron‚ vitamin B-12‚ and other nutrients essential to the health of your skin‚ hair‚ nails‚ blood cells‚ bones‚ and nervous system.
    • Pepsin‚ which helps to break proteins down into polypeptides‚ makes it easier for proteins to be further digested.

    Each bottle contains 225 capsules‚ which is enough to last for 75 days at the standard recommended dosage three times daily.

    Thorne Research strives to provide pure‚ high-quality supplements to people looking to enhance their health and well-being. Its products are commonly used in prestigious research studies‚ and are recommended by many doctors and health care practitioners. The company always goes the extra mile to ensure that Thorne Research dietary supplements are safe and effective for immune-compromised‚ allergic‚ and chemically sensitive patients.

    Got acid reflux?

    After reading Chris Kessler's work on acid reflux and being celiac, I realized I actually have low stomach acid. I just ordered a second bottle. Betaine HCI & Pepsin by Thorne Research has improved my overall digestion with ox bile for no more gallbladder, and pancreatic enzymes.

    Not meant for vegetarians.

    I love Thorne products and personally use several of them. However, vegetarians be sure to read the label carefully as the pepsin is derived from porcine. If that is not a concern for you, then once again Thorne has put out another very effective product, one of them being Betaine HCI & Pepsin by Thorne Research!


    Pros

      Very effective with preventing digestive upsets due to less than optimal digestion. Take with a meal for best results.

    Cons

      I wish the pepsin was derived from a vegetarian source. I believe papain derived from papaya would be a good substitute for porcine. Hint... hint.. Thorne.. :)

    I would recommend this item to a friend.

    Indispensable supplement

    Right now, I can't live without HCI. As someone with chronic fatigue and weak adrenals, I don't make enough of my own stomach acid to digest food properly. This HCIsupplement by Thorne is superior, I think, because pepsin is included in the formula, and in the right ratio. I highly recommend it.


    Pros

      The right ingredients in the right combination. Affordable.

    Cons

      Nothing.

    I would recommend this item to a friend.

    Thorne Betain/Pepsin

    I would recommend Thorne Research products because they are less likely to have the additive that will affect us badly. Betaine HCI & Pepsin has helped with my digestion. I appreciate PureFormulas FAST shipping most of all.


    Pros

      Helped my digestion.

    Cons

      Nothing.

    prevent heartburn and stomach upset

    This product is wonderful. I have used it for a while and have also used other digestive enzymes and found this one to be the most effective. It is also good quality and price. For me it has prevented heartburn and stomach upset while promoting good flora in my gut. I would encourage you to try this and see what it can do for you.
