Hydrochloric acid (HCl) and the proteolytic enzyme pepsin that are secreted in the stomach, and the pancreatic enzymes (amylase, lipase, and protease) secreted from the pancreas into the small intestine are essential for digestion and absorption of nutrients from the food we eat. A supplement containing these enzymes can provide benefit in situations when less than optimal amounts are produced in the body – like during the natural aging process.
HCl facilitates the body’s absorption of multiple nutrients, including folate, vitamin B12, vitamin C, beta-carotene, iron, and various forms of calcium, magnesium, and zinc. Pancreatic enzymes facilitate the absorption of fat-soluble nutrients like vitamins A, D, E, and K, CoQ10, and omega-3 fatty acids.
