Thorne Research, Betaine HCL & Pepsin 625 capsules


Availability: Out of stock


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.

    The most helpful favorable review

    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.

      This is a product I cannot do without so I was very happy to such a competitive price for it as well as a discount for my first order. I received quickly and will be returning in the future. Thanx

      I love this brand of HCL since it contains no fillers or stearates.
