- Dietary Supplement
- Hydrochloric Acid Source
- Digestive Support
In the stomach, hydrochloric acid converts pepsinogen to pepsin, an enzyme that breaks down protein. Pepsin breaks down proteins into smaller, more easily absorbed substances. As people age, hydrochloric acid secretion may be reduced, which can result in decreased levels of pepsin. Without proper pepsin levels, the body has a difficult time digesting food. Betaine hydrochloride is used as a supplemental source of hydrochloric acid, which can be utilized by the stomach to produce pepsin. The combination of betaine hydrochloride and pepsin provide an excellent stomach tonic.
1 tablet with a meal, up to four times daily. Do not take on an empty stomach.

If you have a problem with stomach acid, or maybe your nails or hair don't grow well then you may want to try this product. For many years I couldn't donate blood because my iron was too low-that was with taking iron tablets. When I started the HCL not only did I stop the iron tablets but I could donate blood again and my fingernails grew for the first time in my life-no cracking peeling or chipping. When my iron got low again many years later I knew it was time to up the dosage again.
taken immediately after every meal has done away with digestion problems and has helped my husband's asthma. wouldn't be without HCL!

Most people don't realise how harmful ant-acid tablets are and that they only compound the problem in the majority of cases. When you experience heartburn and indigestion you most likely have NOT ENOUGH acid in your stomach - and not too much as the advertisers would have you believe. These Betaine Hydrochloride tablets re-balance the acid levels in your stomach by adding acid naturally derived from beetroot and aid in the proper and full digestion of your food thus ensuring you get maximum nutritional benefit. Although not a frequent sufferer of indigestion etc. I have used these tablets on and off for years and they have always worked for me. Please give them a try before you reach for harmful ant-acids.
Rough for stomach and contains milk( wasted money

I personally do not feel good after taking these, but even more bloated, after doing some research, I found I didn't notice these contained milk before ordering, might be feeling worse after taking them because of this. Or just that HCl won't work for me at the moment, even though I am definetely low on stomach acid, almost can't digest meat at all but I also have a very damaged stomach. Will do with enzymes for now only. Then might try another HC but def without any milk in it and probably in capsules cause these tablets are also very big and difficult to swallow.
No acid reflux
