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 use this to ensure that there is enough acid in my stomach to digest my food. Before I used it my food would go through very quickly and my bowel movements would be like diarhea. Now my bowel movements are normal so I assume that the food is being digested well. I take one pill with each meal.

      Pros

      See above

      Cons

      Nothing
      I would recommend this item to a friend.

      I have been using this for 10+ years. I can’t imagine where my health would have been without it. Especially since I have aged. Rarely do I suffer from any gas or heartburn. I have thyroid issues in my family and I know this makes a huge difference.

      Pros

      Has always worked for me...quality product.

      This is one of my favorite digestive helpers. It's very strong (but I'm small at only 5ft tall), so I only need one per meal. Really helps with digestion, bloating and motility. All the thumbs up.

      I am currently taking 1 of these per meal along with Digest Gold enzymes and Nutricology Ox Bile. In conjunction, I don't feel the food is just sitting in my stomach like it used to feel.

      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.

      My integrative doctor put me on Betaine HCI & Pepsin by Thorne Research about 8 years ago, when it was found that I had hardly any stomach acid. I take two per meal, three if it's a big meal like Christmas or Thanksgiving, and it really helps!

      Pros

      The capsules are larger, but easy to swallow. They don't upset my stomach, but help with food digestion.

      Cons

      Nothing.

      I never let myself run out of Betaine HCI & Pepsin by Thorne Research. I take two at every meal to kick start digestion and secretion of pancreatic enzymes and bile. Use with caution if you have a history of peptic ulcer disease.

      Pros

      Affordable, pure (no fillers).

      Cons

      I would recommend this item to a friend.
