Quick Overview

    Product Description

    Hydrochloric acid secretion assists protein digestion by activating pepsinogen to pepsin, renders the stomach sterile against orally-ingested pathogens, prevents bacterial or fungal overgrowth in the small intestine, and 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, non-heme iron, and some forms of calcium, magnesium, and zinc. Numerous studies have shown acid secretion declines with advancing age. Impaired HCl production and
    secretion are also associated with a number of clinical conditions, requiring long-term supplementation.

    Hypochlorhydria and achlorhydria are conditions in which the production of hydrochloric acid in the digestive juices of the stomach is low or absent, respectively. Overuse of antacids can lead to hypochlorhydria (low stomach acid), which can result in poor protein digestion and the potential for development of allergies. Thorne offers HCl (hydrochloric acid) and pure pepsin from a porcine source. Unlike many supplement companies, the pepsin utilized in Thorne’s product is pure, undiluted, and lactose-free.
