Karuna Health’s HCl-Pepsin™ provides several ingredients that may help address certain symptoms associated with digestive discomfort.
First‚ one serving of HCl-Pepsin™ contains 550 milligrams of betaine HCl as well as 100 milligrams of glutamic acid HCl. Notably‚ these substances might work to stimulate the release of hydrochloric acid‚ which is an enzyme that plays several key roles in digestion. Specifically‚ hydrochloric acid can act to break down protein in your stomach‚ maintain a healthy balance of gut flora‚ and encourage the absorption of nutrients such as calcium and iron. Since your body’s natural production of hydrochloric acid tends to decline as you age‚ this supplement may be particularly beneficial to older adults.
HCl-Pepsin™ also provides 170 milligrams of pepsin per serving. Pepsin—which is a proteolytic enzyme derived from BSE-free‚ freeze-dried animal tissue—also plays a key role in protein digestion.
Every bottle of HCl-Pepsin™ by Karuna Health contains 100 capsules.

Overall Rating for HCL-Pepsin - 100 Capsules
By Sarah B
from San Diego, CA
I've been using HCL-Pepsin by Karuna Health for a little over a year now. Apparently my stomach isn't producing the right amounts of HCI. HCL-Pepsin was recommended to me by my Master of Oriental Medicine. Fortunately it is affordable since I have to take it with every meal! If you have the same issue I would definitely recommend it!
Easy to take.
√ I would recommend this item to a friend.
