Expiration Date:Expiration Date
The length of time for the expiration date or "best used before" date depends on the type of product, as well as the brand.
Perishable items (such as flax oils or certain probiotics) generally have shorter expiration dates. Although our warehouse is fully air-conditioned, these more fragile items are put in cold storage (freezer or refrigeration unit) for maximum freshness.
Our receiving department does its best to verify and then enter the correct expiration dates for all incoming products. However, discrepancies do occur from time to time. This being said, the exceptionally high turnover at iHerb ensures that our inventory is among the freshest in the industry.

- Promotes Digestive Efficiency
Betaine HCL/Pepsin/Gentian Bitters contains three nutritional factors that perform complementary functions designed to support the efficiency of the digestive process. Supplementing with Betaine HCL may support the stomach's digestive capacity. Pepsin is an enzyme produced by the body to digest protein-containing foods in the stomach. Pepsin works in conjunction with stomach acid to support protein digestion. Gentian is an herb used to promote digestive capacity and tonify the digestive tract. Its bitter nature may help to stimulate the body's production of digestive enzymes.
For even further enhancement of digestive support, use this supplement in conjunction with Best Digestive Enzymes-All Vegetarian, a uniquely formulated, full-spectrum high potency digestive enzyme blend.
Take 1 capsule with each meal, or as recommended by a healthcare professional.

This digestive aid does seem to help. I have always struggled against the common "logic" that directs us toward reducing stomach acids when experiencing digestive upsets. If I have "stomach" issues, I seem to tolerate a V8 juice better than any other liquid. Contrary to common wisdom, you would think that the acidity would cause rather than resolve issues with reflux or indigestion. However, I have found in using this product that my food seems to break down more efficiently and progress through the stomach sooner. It would seem that retaining a volume of unprocessed retained foods in the stomach that created or aggravated my issues. While results with such products vary from person to person, I have found adding this occasionally at known "problem" meals has definitely removed the unwanted after effects for me personally.

I have Reflux and taking stomach acid works wonders. 1-2 capsules per meal works for me. Some might need more to start with. Its very individual.

It seems to help a little with my stomach issues and digestion problems, but I was hoping for more. I has rather good reviews so maybe my problem lies somewhere elsT and the enzymes want help much. therefore, I have decided to give it 4 stars.
The best HCl capsule

I and many close have tested so many HCls and this has been by far the best, it works the best with enzymes. You need caution with the dosage to avoid possible stomach ache from too much (usually one is enough, depends on your health level), but it is easily fixed with either lots of water or something neutralizing eg magnesium or algae. I would hope this came in a smaller dosage too.
