Design for Health Betaine HCI with Pepsin
Designs for Health’s Betaine HCl provides 750 mg betaine hydrochloride along with pepsin, one of the body’s key protein digesting enzymes. This product is ideal for individuals with low stomach acid who may benefit from support for digestive function.It is delivered in capsule form to ensure delivery of the ingredients to the stomach where they are needed to initiate digestion.
HCl is a key player in the body’s defense against foodborne illness. Insufficient production of HCl may result in inadequate degradation of harmful or opportunistic organisms which may contribute to bacterial overgrowth or dysbiosis, inflammation and immune overactivation, as well as increased risk for pneumonia and Clostridium difficile (C. diff) infection. Additionally, insufficient HCl may lead to poor nutrient status, which explains observed deficiencies in iron, magnesium, B12, and calcium.
Pepsin, the other ingredient in this product, is an endopeptidase that breaks down proteins into smaller peptides, facilitating the activity of protein-digesting enzymes in the small intestine. Pepsin is first secreted as pepsinogen and is converted to its active form in the acidic environment of the stomach.
- Digestive support for individuals with low stomach acid
- Supports in the breakdown of protein in the stomach for further digestion in the small intestine
- Can potentially decrease food sensitivities in certain food through improved digestion of proteins
