A Dietary Supplement
Hydrochloride, provided by Douglas Laboratories®, is a powdered dietary
supplement of hydrochloric acid supplied in two-piece gelatin capsules.
Betaine Hydrochloride capsules may be a
useful nutritional adjunct for individuals who wish to supplement their
diets with hydrochloric acid.
The breakdown of dietary protein begins
in the stomach where gastric hydrochloric acid 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 Hydrochloride is a dietary supplement which adds hydrochloric acid to the stomach.
These capsules are intended to be taken whole, not pulled apart to be taken directly.
