Additional Information

  • Pepsin hydrolyses all types of proteins, reducing them to polypeptides
  • HCL provides the optimal environment (around pH 2) for pepsin activity
  • Adequate levels of HCL are required for the absorption of minerals such as iron, calcium and zinc
  • HCL provides an inhibitory environment for potential pathogenic bacteria ingested with food
  • Encapsulation allows for a quicker release of the ingredients and reduces the likelihood of gastric wall irritation that can sometimes occur with tablets
  • Low potency therefore allowing for more flexibility in adjusting individual requirements
