Thorne Research offers hydrochloric acid and pure pepsin. Unlike many supplement companies, the pepsin utilized in Thorne Research’s product is pure, undiluted, and lactose-free. Thorne Research’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.
