Product Overview

  • Vegetarian Formula
  • A Dietary Supplement
  • Vegetarian - Vegan
  • Probiotic-Enzymes -Digestive
  • Family Owned Since 1968
  • GMP Quality Assured

NOW Betaine HCL is formulated to support proper digestive conditions in the stomach. Hydrochloric Acid (HCL) is normally produced in the stomach, where is assists protein digestion by activating pepsin, helps to maintain a healthy balance of gut flora, and stimulates the release of intestinal enzymes. Pepsin is protrease produced in the stomach that partially breaks down protein in foods. HCL production tends to decline with age, so supplementing with HCL and pepsin may help to maintain normal digestive function. This product uses a vegetarian acid-stable protease with activity equivalent to that of animal-derived pepsin.

Suggested Use

Take 1 capsule at the beginning of each meal. Do not take on an empty stomach. Do not take if you have stomach or duodenal ulcers.

Other Ingredients

Helps People with Low Acidity

Posted by iHerb Customer on April 11 2018 | Verified Purchase

This is a good supplement for those who have Hypochlorhydria (low acidity in stomach). Stomach of a Hypochlorhydria patient takes a long time to digest food. If food stays in the stomach for a long time, it causes many other complications such as LPR (Laryngopharyngeal Reflux), overgrowth of germs in intestines and help fungus grown the body. One capsule of this supplement with meal helps increase the acidity in stomach and hence digest food comparatively faster. This consequently helps reduce LPR and help those who are underweight or weak due to slow digestion.

Thanks for your feedback!

Just starting - surely helpful...

Posted by iHerb Customer on April 4 2018 | Verified Purchase

I just started taking the Betain HCL capsules - I open 1 capsule and take only half of it, each time after or while eating. I feel that it helps me. I do not have as much irritations or heavy feelings in my tummy - while taking Betain HCL....

Thanks for your feedback!
