Douglas Labs  Betaine Plus  100 Caps


DESCRIPTION Betaine Plus, provided by Douglas Laboratories, supplies 650 mg of Betaine HCl and 140 mg of Pepsin in each easy to swallow capsule.

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 catalyst in the activation of pepsin from pepsinogen. Active pepsin is a proteolytic enzyme which splits large protein molecules into smaller polypeptides. Additionally, hydrochloric acid acts directly on dietary 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. 

INDICATIONS Betaine Plus may be a useful dietary adjunct for for individuals wishing to supplement their diets with Betaine HCl and Pepsin. 

SUGGESTED USE Adults take as directed by physician only.

SIDE EFFECTS No adverse side effects have been reported.

STORAGE Store in a cool, dry place, away from direct light. Keep out of reach of children
