BioCare HCL and Pepsin

(Stomach Acid & Pepsin)

HCl is necessary for the digestion of proteins, the absorption of minerals and to help support the digestive tract, supplementing HCl may encourage the body to increase its own production of stomach acid if needed and assist with normal digestion. 

Additional Information

Pepsin hydrolyses all types of proteins, reducing them to polypeptides

HCl provides the optimal environment (around pH 2) for pepsin activity

Adequate levels of HCl are required for the absorption of minerals such as iron, calcium and zinc

HCl provides an inhibitory environment for potential pathogenic bacteria ingested with food

Encapsulation allows for a quicker release of the ingredients and reduces the likelihood of gastric wall irritation that can sometimes occur with tablets

Low potency therefore allowing for more flexibility in adjusting individual requirements
