BEst of the best :)
The digestion of my other supplements has improved significantly since I started taking this
Posted by 4696641919573077182 on Dec 12, 2015
I have had low iron for years and years, and can't take prescription tablets as they bind me up instantly. I take expensive (comparatively) capsule iron, and found it wasn't being absorbed well, even when taken with Vitamin C. Betaine HCL have largely resolved this problem. I tried the vegetarian alternatives, and they didn't work as well (unfortunately as I don't usually use animal products). In this case, if I want to be well, I've had to use an animal-based product, which has got the results I'm after.
One of the best Betaine HCL products

I'd like to recommend it to all of you with low stomach acid

I recommend taking this before a meal. I tried taking it after, it sort of just sat at the end of my esophagus / start of my stomach, I can feel a warm sensation. I only take 2 pills! If I take it before a meal though, I won't feel anything. I take it when I eat a meal heavy in proteins since my digestion is a little weak.
Doing the job.

Very satisfied with my digestion after this product.

I have low stomach acid due to low thyroid function and this is helping me so much to digest the food. I can tell the difference- before knowing about it I had often need to lay down after simple breakfast.Now no steak can scare me:)
No need to take more than 3 capsules per meal!

Established brand - NOW - and Betaine HCL does what you want from this supplement. Just do not get fooled by those who say you need 7 capsules per meal. There is (almost) no gain if you go over 3 capsules per meal. The pH won't get significantly lower when taking 7 capsules over 3 capsules. This supplement will get you about 2 pH with 3 capsules and taking another 4 is almost useless because pH does not work like that! Like if you had pH 6 and take 3 capsules you would get pH 2 but another 3 capsules won't make it pH 1. The pH then decreases just a little bit and taking a lot of capsules will just cost you a lot of money.
Works wonders if trouble with multiple food intolerances

This product does the trick if you struggle with multiple food sensitivites ( wheat, dairy, eggs etc etc ). The only ''problem'' with betaine hcl is that you have to find the right dose for it to work properly. My recommendation : follow Dr Wrights advice as outlined in his book.

Seems to work well but I get discomfort with it, so I'm pretty sure my stomach acid production is just fine.
