NOW® Betaine HCL is designed to support proper digestive conditions in the stomach. Hydrochloric acid (HCL) is normally produced in the stomach, where it aids protein digestion by activating pepsin, aids in the maintenance of a healthy gut flora balance, and stimulates the release of intestinal enzymes. Pepsin is a protease that is produced in the stomach and helps to break down protein in foods. Because HCL production declines with age, supplementing with HCL and pepsin may aid in the maintenance of normal digestive function. This product contains a vegetarian acid-stable protease with activity comparable to animal-derived pepsin.
