Decreasing stomach acidity can result in impaired protein digestion, mineral breakdown, and alterations in gut flora over time. Maintaining adequate levels of HCL is essential for healthy protein digestion, nutrient availability, and the preservation of beneficial gastric flora. Betaine HCL and pepsin are produced by the hormone gastrin. Gastrin signals gastric glands and parietal cells to produce HCl and stimulates chief cells to produce pepsin. Once the stomach's pH reaches around 2.0, the gastrin mechanism slows, and negative feedback causes parietal cells to decrease HCL production. Given that pepsin is most active in low pH values, maintaining acidic gastric juices is crucial for the enzyme's optimal function. Supporting natural gastric secretions and acidity with Betaine HCL promotes normal digestion, absorption, and optimal immune health. Additionally, maintaining an acidic pH in the stomach helps support normal gastric and intestinal flora.
