NOW® Betaine HCl is formulated to support healthy digestive conditions in the stomach. Hydrochloric acid (HCl) is normally produced in the stomach, where it helps digest proteins by activating pepsin, helps maintain a healthy balance of the gut flora, and stimulates the release of intestinal enzymes. Pepsin is a protease produced in the stomach that partially breaks down proteins in the diet. HCl production tends to decrease with age, so supplementation with HCl and pepsin can help maintain normal digestive function. This product uses a vegetarian acid-stable protease with activity equivalent to that of animal-derived pepsin.
