I had all the symptoms of hypochlorhydria (weak stomach acid): reflux, adult acne, eczema on my scalp and face, athlete's foot. You need strong acid to utilize the nutrition in food. It appears that my depression was related to being malnourished, because I no longer fall into deep depression (suicidal thoughts). You need strong stomach acid to absorb B12, and B12 deficiency has been linked to depression. I always had a slight, but constant, thick congestion -- that is gone. I also used to suffer from very dry skin, but that has gotten better. Twinlab has worked best for me. Now Foods brand was useless for me. Read a book called: "Why Stomach Acid is Good for You: Natural Relief from Heartburn, Indigestion, Reflux and GERD" written by an M.D. and Ph.D. With regard to reflux, they say "strong stomach acid = strong valve." They recommend working up to 6 - 7 capsules/meal. Once I started taking HCl, I was cured of the reflux instantaneously. I do wish they made Betaine HCl in a more concentrated form. I go through a bottle/week. I also lost weight -- I used to be quite chubby. Again, strong acid means you are sqeezing all of the nutrients out of your food, so you don't get hungry as often.
I have to say this is a good product for the money.. As someone with low stomach acid due to adrenal fatigue and hypothyroid, this product is helping me break down the foods that were not being broke down.
I can't be without it

I have low stomach acid and I take a lot of supplements, without this product I can't digest the supplements and I get sick right after I take them, like very uncomfortable feeling in my stomach, feels almost like I can't breathe, but right after I take Betaine HCl everything in my stomach settles and gives immediate relief. That's why I don't want to be without it.
Good Brand and WORK well.

I take these after every meal because I have a sensitive stomach during peri-menopause. Sometimes my stomach literally hurts or feels like a brick is sitting in there after I eat even something small. Betaine HCL helps to digest and break down the foods. I use this for my autistic son who has gut issues as well. Helps him stay regular and not have so much gut pain after eating foods that are harder for his body to digest. Of course, a healthy diet is important as well. I would recommend these. And I highly recommend keeping Activated Charcoal capsules on hand if you suffer with bloated feelings or gas.

I have increased 1 per meal and I stopped at 8 for now with no burning sensation, I had the bottle less then a week and they are almost gone. to my dismay I can't tell they are doing anything, I'm going to try a different brand next time.I have problems with acid reflux and sometimes taking these causes it to flare up, I was really hoping they would help..
