Description Usage Supplement Facts Betain HCI Pepsin promotes healthy digestive function. Betain HCI Pepsin may help stimulate digestive function and absorb nutrients; specifically protein, calcium, vitamin B12 and iron.* Betaine HCl and pepsin are gastric-juice components essential to the digestion of food and absorption of most nutrients. In particular, betaine HCl is necessary for adequate absorption of protein, calcium, vitamin B12 and iron. The low pH of the stomach's hydrochloric acid destroys ingested bacteria and microorganisms. This formula can be beneficial for anyone seeking enhanced digestive function.* *These statements have not been evaluated by the Food and Drug Administration.
