I see that quite a lot of drugs and dietary supplements sold in the USA have -HCl(hydrochloride) added to their name. For example pyridoxine hydrochloride for Vitamin B6. I'm interested in knowing where in the digestive system -HCl compounds are absorbed? Is it in the stomach?
It would also help if I get a rough idea of how long it takes for -HCl supplements to be absorbed. Is it an hour or more?
Thank you for your input!
