Supplies Pepsin and Betaine

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

Betaine Plus supplies the digestive enzymes betaine and pepsin in a convenient capsule form. Originally isolated from sugar beets, betaine can be found in a number of dietary sources including wheat, quinoa, and spinach. Betaine is a catabolic source of methyl groups, involved in numerous metabolic processes throughout the body.

Chief cells in the stomach release pepsinogen where then hydrochloric acid acts as a catalyst in the activation of pepsin from pepsinogen. Pepsin is key in the process of converting protein obtained through the diet into peptides the body can digest to use for energy and structural building.

Betaine Plus 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. Another physiological role of gastric hydrochloric acid is to protect the body from food-borne enteric infections through its antibacterial properties.

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