    Betaine & Pepsin - 225 Capsules



    Ortho Molecular Betaine & Pepsin

    This Betaine & Pepsin supplement provides hydrochloric acid to help maintain gastric pH and supports overall nutrient absorption.


    • Provides Hydrochloric Acid to Help Maintain Gastric pH
    • Promotes Healthy Digestion, Especially of Dietary Protein
    • Supports Overall Nutrient Absorption



    Betaine (also known as trimethylglycine) is a natural substance found in foods such as beets and spinach. Betaine HCl, the acidic form of betaine, has been used for years to support digestion and absorption due to its ability to lower gastric pH.


    One of the first enzymes to initiate protein digestion, pepsin is synthesized in the parietal cells of the gastric mucosa. Pepsin is released by the chief cells and is responsible for breaking down proteins into peptides. This activation sets up a chain reaction that produces more pepsin, allowing for better protein digestion.

    Suggested Use

    1-2 capsules before each meal, or as recommended by your health care professional

    More Info.

    Symptoms of indigestion are often mistaken for excessive gastric acid. This leads many to take acid blockers in attempt to lower stomach acid, when the true culprit is likely to be insufficient levels of hydrochloric acid (HCl). Betaine & Pepsin provides two essential components of healthy digestion: HCl and the digestive enzyme, pepsin. HCl is vital for the proper digestion of protein and the absorption of vitamins and minerals. Pepsin is one of the first enzymes to initiate protein digestion and works in synergy with HCl to provide complete protein digestive support.
