Aging, illness, and the overuse of antacids can contribute to insufficient secretion of hydrochloric acid and pancreatic enzymes, resulting in incomplete digestion of food.* This maldigestion can result in various health problems, including nutrient malabsorption, digestive problems (such as gas, bloating, and diarrhea), and vitamin deficiencies (particularly of the fat-soluble vitamins).* Thorne offers hydrochloric acid and pure pepsin. Unlike many supplement companies, the pepsin utilized in Thorne’s product is pure, undiluted, and lactose-free. Thorne’s pure pancreatin is also lactose-free and has the highest potency and purity possible.* These elements are combined in one formula, B.P.P., to help aid in overall digestion.* Individuals who may be low in hydrochloric acid production and have malabsorption of protein, carbohydrates, and fats should consider B.P.P.*
