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.

- 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.

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.

I've been on anti-acids for 30+ years & PPIs for 13 years which have DESTROYED my teeth & bones. They cause kidney damage as well as EVERY neurological disorder in existence. My heartburn /reflux problem became increasingly worse while taking PPIs & I automatically turned to even MORE anti-acids to rid myself of my digestive issues. Gaviscon, Mylanta, Tums were EVERYWHERE in my home, my purse & even our vehicles. I ran across You Tube videos by Dr Berg & Montreal Healthy Girl that recommended a Betaine HCL Acid w /Pepsin Supplement to RE-TRAIN my body to produce MORE stomach acid so my food could be digested PROPERLY. I was miserable while weaning myself off of the prescription meds (TERRIBLE heartburn, reflux & headaches) & anti-acids and I had to take massive doses of HCL Acid (as many as 15 - 650 mg tabs daily: 3/4 before meals & additional tabs throughout the day when heartburn returned. Some people have had to take as many as 18 HCL tabs daily because their stomach completely stopped making HCL Acid on it's own - THIS is what medication is DESIGNED to do! AGAIN, HCL is SUPPOSED to be in our stomach....TO DIGEST FOOD so it's safe. I take the HCL tabs with 2 T of Organic, Raw Apple Cider Vinegar in a cup of distilled water and take an additional HCL tab every 30 minutes until my heartburn goes away. I added a Pro-Biotic as well which has helped my digestive distress. A LOT of people have to add Pro-Biotics & FERMENTED foods to sort out the digestive MESS that chemical dependency medications CREATE. I'm slowly improving but it can take months to re-balance my digestive tract so that my body takes care of itself NORMALLY. Most people eventually discontinue the HCL or decrease it to 1 tablet before meals. Because HCL is produced NATURALLY in our stomach; I would much rather supplement my LOW ACID PROBLEM with HCL Acid INSTEAD of taking dangerous meds for the rest of my life that were literally destroying my body. MOST Physicians are IDIOTS because MOST heartburn, reflux & digestive problems are caused by TOO LITTLE STOMACH ACID which prescription & over the counter meds reduce even further! These meds eliminate the REQUIRED stomach acid for ADEQUATE digestion AND cover up the "heartburn symptom" which is a SIGNAL that SOMETHING is wrong within our body & needs to be CORRECTED. The meds MASK symptoms & allow us to CONTINUE consuming low quality & chemically treated food that our body is REJECTING. Children & teens are now commonly prescribed PPIs & H2 Blockers due to the crap we now call food. This is a health crisis considering these meds should not be taken longer than six weeks & MOST physcians now prescribe them for the duration of their patients LIFE! Research NATURAL TREATMENTS before taking dangerous medications that ALWAYS cripple other NORMAL body functions in order to MASK a SYMPTOM! I wish I had known about Apple Cider Vinegar & the importance of healthy food BEFORE I turned to a PPI prescription that made my health even worse. Thank goodness, more patients are now turning to Naturopaths & Herbalists on online websites & you tube for safe "CURES" instead of health & drug professionals that know very little about HEALING the body. Medication can sometimes be a blessing but the reported side effects are REAL & we are discovering that long term use has devastating consequences. Research!!
This product works well

Doctors found HCL deficit in my stomach. When I started to use Betaine HCL my health has improved significantly. Appeared energy, digestive problems disappeared. While eating, especially protein food, I took 2 or 3 tablets., Supplement works fine and I do not feel any side effects. Betaine HCL I found only in the I-Herb. The team is working well, the booking process is straightforward. I get the ordered goods on time. Thanks to I-Herb team. Geraldas
