As a "femme d'un certain age" (48, if you must know), I am assuming that my stomach acid is no longer as strong as it used to be (that's what you read, at least). I take these to try and ensure that I absorb nutrients better and don't waste the good food I make for myself and my family. When I run out of them, I do feel the difference, so I've already re-ordered these several times. I can definitely recommend them, particularly if you are low in magnesium. You need strong stomach acid to absorb magnesium, so I sometimes even take these on an empty stomach (just one capsule) when I take my Dr's Best High Absorption magnesium between meals. With meals which are high in fat and/or protein, I sometimes take two. Oh, and I also like the fact that these also contain the gentian bitters. I sometimes use a liquid bitter and they do help to calm your stomach if you've had a heavy meal. So, five stars for this one, too!!!

I'm not entirely sure that it was due to this product, but my gut felt ill when I was taking this. I have a leaky gut, so perhaps my gut's reaction isn't typical.

I was using Solaray HCL Pepsin 650mg and ran out. So I decided to try this brand. Well, I made the wrong choice. I didn't see any results. So I went back to the Solaray brand. They really help me with my symptoms. I take them for gerd and acid reflux. They help me with heart burn. I even noticed eye bags went down while on them. Won't ever switch from Solaray again! Thanks for reading.

I've not seen any improvement, but am going to try doubling the dosage.
