Betaine HCl - Betain HCl with Pepsin


Pepsin is a digestive enzyme produced in the stomach of most vertebrates. It breaks down food proteins into albumoses and peptones (a mixture of various low molecular weight peptides).

Pepsin belongs to hydrolases, specifically to proteases (enzymes that break down proteins). It is produced in the cells of the gastric mucosa as a proenzyme pepsinogen. It is activated in the stomach by the action of previously formed pepsin molecules (this is the so-called autocatalysis). The activity of pepsin is highest in a strongly acidic environment (pH 1.5 – 3.5) – that is why hydrochloric acid is present in the stomach.

Betaine HCl breaks down in the stomach into betaine and hydrochloride and thereby acidifies the stomach environment. Therefore, its combination with pepsin is extremely advantageous.
