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.*
This product is contraindicated in an individual with a history of hypersensitivity to any of its ingredients.
B.P.P. contains an ingredient derived from a porcine (pork) source.
This product does not contain wheat, gluten, corn, yeast, soy, egg, dairy products, or artificial colors, sweeteners, or flavors. This product also does not contain lactose, palmitic acid, or magnesium, calcium, or vegetable stearates.
If pregnant, consult your health-care practitioner before using this product.
B.P.P. should not be used concurrently with H2-blocking drugs and proton pump inhibitors, because these drugs are intended to block the production of stomach HCl.
B.P.P. should be used with caution in a patient with a history of a peptic or duodenal ulcer.
It is not recommended to remove the B.P.P. powder from the capsule, as it can be irritating to the oral mucosa.
