A comprehensive blend of enzymes that aids digestion*
B.P.P. provides the hydrochloric acid and pancreatic enzymes whose insufficient secretion by the body can result in indigestion.*
Hydrochloric acid secretion in the stomach does several positive things. It assists protein digestion by activating pepsinogen to pepsin, it renders the stomach sterile against ingested pathogens, it inhibits undesirable overgrowth in the small intestine, and it encourages the flow of bile and pancreatic enzymes.* Hydrochloric acid also facilitates the absorption of a number of nutrients, including folate, vitamin B12, ascorbic acid, beta-carotene, iron, and some forms of calcium, magnesium, and zinc.* Numerous studies show hydrochloric acid secretion in the stomach declines with advancing age. The overuse of antacid products can also lead to low levels of hydrochloric acid in the stomach, which can further inhibit digestion.
