BioCare HCl & Pepsin Capsules are a daily food supplement which includes a combination of pepsin and betaine hydrochloride in a deliberately low potent form. This allows for flexibility in adjusting intake according to individual requirements.
Betaine hydrochloride (betaine HCL) is a vitamin-like substance found in certain grain-based foods, which may benefit those with hypochlorhydria (a deficiency of stomach acid production). Pepsin is a digestive enzyme that is produced in the cells lining the stomach. Pepsin has a variety of benefits that help the body function properly, however it is often associated with breaking down fats and proteins during the digestive process.

- HCL provides the optimal environment (around pH 2) for pepsin activity.
- Low potency therefore allowing for more flexibility in adjusting individual requirements.
As the body ages, it can struggle with stomach acid secretion, which may lead to low levels of stomach acid, poor digestion and a deficiency in mineral intake. In some cases, a potential first warning sign to a lack of dietary hydrochloric acid, is splitting nails. Hydrochloric Acid based supplements, like BioCare HCl & Pepsin make minerals and nutrients more absorbable, which helps to maintain efficient digestive function.
