GENESTRA BRANDS HCl & Pepsin digestive enzyme formula provides betaine 
hydrochloride and naturally-derived enzymes that support the digestion of 
proteins and fats.

Betaine is a naturally occurring plant substance found in beets, spinach, and 
wheat. Betaine hydrochloride (betaine HCl) is commonly used to supplement 
gastric acid levels. In a recent clinical study, a single 1500 mg dose of 
betaine HCl was effective in reducing stomach pH in healthy participants. 
Within 30 minutes of ingestion of the betaine HCl, participant mean stomach pH 
was significantly reduced from approximately 5.2 to approximately 0.6Lipase 
enzymes are obtained from animal (porcine and bovine) or plant (Aspergillus 
oryzae and Rhizopus arrhizus) sources. Lipase enzymes aid in fat digestion by 
hydrolyzing triglycerides into fatty acids and monogrlycerides. The proteolytic 
enzyme pepsin A is the active version of the zymogen pepsinogen A (PGA). PGA is 
produced by chief cells in the gastric mucosa, and released into the stomach 
lumen following the ingestion of food. PGA is then converted into pepsin A by 
stomach acid (HCl). HCl facilitates protein digestion and the absorption of 
vitamin B12, iron and calcium.
