Betaine Plus, provided by Douglas Laboratories, supplies 650 mg of Betaine HCl and 140 mg of Pepsin in each easy to swallow capsule.
In order to properly digest dietary proteins and other foods, the body needs proper levels of hydrochloric acid (HCl). Douglas Laboratories Betaine Plus, which supplies the body with 650 mg of Betaine HCl and 140 mg of Pepsin, can allow the body to break down ingested foods, and allow for the intake of nutrients supplied by your diet. A key component in the continuing health of the gastrointestinal tract, HCl can help with issues including gas and bloating.
The breakdown of dietary protein begins in the stomach where gastric hydrochloric acid (HCl) assumes an important role in protein digestion and other processes. Hydrochloric acid acts as a catalyst in the activation of pepsin from pepsinogen. Active pepsin is a proteolytic enzyme which splits large protein molecules into smaller polypeptides. Additionally, hydrochloric acid acts directly on dietary proteins by loosening up their macromolecular structure (denaturing). Gastric hydrochloric acid also helps reduce poorly available trivalent ferric iron into more soluble and absorbable divalent ferrous iron. Another physiological role of gastric hydrochloric acid is to protect the body from food-borne enteric infections through its immunity-enhancing properties.
