Chewing this product is not recommended DESCRIPTION This is a Pepsin and Hydrochloric Acid (HCI) supplement. Hydrochloric acid products run in contradistinction to the most popular drug of the modern era; the antacid. The antacid is very poor biochemistry, as it neutralizes one of the most important of all bodily secretions, hydrochloric acid. ZYPAN provides pepsin and HCI to aid the digestive process. In Guyton's Physiology, 7th ad, page 790, we read: "Pepsin, the important peptic enzyme of the stomach, is most active at a pH of 2 or 3 [extremely acid] and is completely inactive at a pH above approximately 5 [an antacid can easily raise pH to 6 or higher]. Consequently, for this enzyme to cause any digestive action on protein, the stomach juices must be acidic. HCI is secreted by the parietal cells at a pH of about O. 8, but by the time it is mixed with the stomach contents and with the secretions from the nonoxyntic glandular cells of the stomach the pH ranges around 2 to 3, a highly favorable range of acidity for pepsin activity. Pepsin is capable of digesting essentially all the different types of proteins in the diet. One of the important features of pepsin digestion is its ability to digest collagen, an albuminoid that is affected little by other digestive enzymes. Collagen is a major constituent of the intercellular connective tissue of meats, and for the digestive enzymes of the digestive tract to penetrate meats and digest the cellular proteins it is first necessary that the collagen fibers be digested. Consequently, in persons lacking peptic activity in the stomach, the ingested meats are less well penetrated by the digestive enzymes and, therefore, may be poorly digested. " Guyton also warns of pernicious anemia (potentially fatal form of anemia) from a stomach chronically low in HCI (hypo or achlorhydria). ZYPAN is our best product for improving protein digestion. You notice it contains pancreatin, pepsin and betaine hydrochloride -- also ammonium chloride. The ammonium chloride acidifies the patient. The pancreatin contains enzymes, particularly trypsin. The biggest clue of a need for ZYPAN is intestinal gas. Gas-forming microorganisms, as I said before, can only exist in an alkaline gastrointestinal tract. The bowel should never be alkaline. In a healthy person it will always be acid. The digestive system will need support if one or more organs or glands are not producing or releasing a sufficient amount of digestive juices. This causes a sick, alkaline gastrointestinal tract with poor or no intestinal flora. If the body cannot digest its food, neither can it assimilate the nutrition that it needs. Some of the most common symptoms indicating a need for Zypan are indigestion, bloating, gas and allergies due to undigested foods which putrefy and send poisons throughout the body. Others include obesity, difficult breathing such as in asthma and emphysema, and hiatal hernias caused by undigested food which push the stomach up into the diaphragm. Many bowel syndromes such as an itching rectum, constipation, diverticulitis and Crohn's syndrome are caused by undigested food creating poisons in the body.
