About B.P.P., Betaine / Pepsin / Pancreatin, 180 Veggie Caps - Thorne Research

Having consistently poor digestion can produce numerous health problems, including nutrient malabsorption, digestive problems such as gas, bloating, and diarrhoea, and vitamin deficiencies. One common reason for having long-term poor digestion can be insufficient secretion of hydrochloric acid and pancreatic enzymes due to factors such as ageing, illness, and the overuse of antacids. Individuals who are likely to be low in hydrochloric acid and pancreatic enzyme secretion, and have malabsorption of protein, carbohydrates, and fats, should consider B.P.P. Unlike many competitive digestive-support products, Thorne’s B.P.P. offers pepsin that is undiluted and lactose-free. B.P.P. also provides undiluted pancreatin, which is essential to optimal digestion and the absorption of numerous nutrients, especially fats. Thorne’s lactose-free pancreatin has the highest potency and purity possible.

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.

Can Your Products be taken out their capsules to take the product?

Most Thorne products can be taken out of the two-piece, pull-apart capsules. However, there are a few products we don’t recommend taking out of the capsule, which would be indicated in the ‘Warnings’ section on this website for the applicable products.

Does Thorne test its products on animals?

No, and furthermore, Thorne supports the objective of eliminating the laboratory testing of all animals.

As soon before I feel the effects of my supplement?

Every individual is unique and every supplement has a different “mechanism of action” for how it works in the body. Some products can provide a relatively fast result, such as with PharmaGABA for alleviating stress, or Melatonin for promoting sleep. Other supplement products, such as a multi-vitamin/mineral product, are for preventive health and general wellbeing, so an immediate response would not be expected. However, for some products, if you experience an overall sense of wellbeings, such as increased energy or improved mood, and that is the indication of use for which you are taking the product, then you are realizing the intended benefit.

Can pain medication and antibiotics interfere with the absorption of the nutritional supplement? 

Thorne is not aware of anything in the current medical and technical literature that indicates that pain medications and antibiotics can interfere with the absorption of the nutrients in nutritional supplements; however, always consult with your health-care practitioner if you are concerned.
