Betaine Plus supplies 650 mg of Betaine HCl and 140 mg of Pepsin in each easy to swallow capsule.

Health Functions:
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 catalystin the activation of pepsin from pepsinogen. Active pepsin is a proteolytic enzyme which splits largeprotein molecules into smaller polypeptides. Additionally, hydrochloric acid acts directly ondietary 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 hydrochloricacid is to protect the body from food-borne enteric infections through its antibacterial properties.
