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.

I was diagnosed with GERD in 2005 but always rejected the advise that I had too much acid. Through homeopathic tests, I discovered I did indeed have low acid and Betaine HCL was all I needed. Since taking this product with protein meals, the acid reflux is under control and I no longer need to take drugs for the symptoms.
A great HCL product.When I ran out of Thorne HCL, it was out of stock at other places. I tried two different brands that didn't give me the same results. I found Health Designs and got back on the Thorne HCL and I'll never use any other brand or another supplier. Health Designs is wonderful.Was this review helpful to you?
