    Benefits individuals with occasional indigestion

    Betaine HCL & Pepsin promotes optimal stomach acidity‚ protein digestion‚ and enzyme activity.

    Indigestion can be caused by many things – including inadequate amounts of hydrochloric acid (HCL) in the stomach. HCL secretion in the stomach does several positive things. It assists protein digestion by activating pepsinogen to pepsin‚ it renders the stomach sterile against ingested pathogens‚ it inhibits undesirable overgrowth in the small intestine‚ and it encourages the flow of bile and pancreatic enzymes. 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. Numerous studies have shown that hydrochloric acid secretion in the stomach begins to decline with advancing age. Overuse of antacids or acid blockers can also lead to low levels of hydrochloric acid in the stomach‚ which can result in poor protein digestion. Thorne's Betaine HCL & Pepsin comes from a porcine source.

    Indigestion affects millions of people every day. 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.

    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. Maldigestion can also lead to digestive problems and poor absorption of nutrients‚ resulting in vitamin deficiencies (particularly fat-soluble vitamins like vitamins A‚ D‚ E‚ and K). Food allergies can develop when inadequately digested proteins are absorbed through a leaky gut. As large proteins are absorbed intact‚ the body might recognize them as foreign and create antibodies against them‚ resulting in an allergic response to the food. To ensure optimal digestion‚ an individual should make sure to have adequate HCL content in the stomach.

    I bought Betaine HCI & Pepsin by Thorne Research to experiment, because I'm often extra sleepy after certain foods. Definitely aids in digesting oatmeal. Thorne is a company that I've had good experiences with in the past and I'm comfortable recommending to others.
    I would recommend this item to a friend.

    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.

    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.. :)

    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.
