- 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.
1 tablet with a meal, up to four times daily. Do not take on an empty stomach.

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 had good results with omeprazol in the past to fight my GERD but I thought I would try something more natural (if Betaine HCl can be called natural): alas not only did it not improve my condition, it made it worse ! Whenever I take one of this caps, my GERD wakes up. When I stop taking it, my GERD slows down. I will search for a better alternative...
Rough for stomach and contains milk( wasted money

I personally do not feel good after taking these, but even more bloated, after doing some research, I found I didn't notice these contained milk before ordering, might be feeling worse after taking them because of this. Or just that HCl won't work for me at the moment, even though I am definetely low on stomach acid, almost can't digest meat at all but I also have a very damaged stomach. Will do with enzymes for now only. Then might try another HC but def without any milk in it and probably in capsules cause these tablets are also very big and difficult to swallow.
No acid reflux

I have been using this product together with Enzymedica Digest products in various strengths off and on for indigestion, which has plagued me constantly in the past six months. It greatly improved my bloating and cramps, and I take it whenever my symptoms worsen again. At my age (66) it is unlikely that I have too much stomach acid; on the contrary, the likelihood of having hypochlorhydria (too little stomach acid) is much greater, and this is what Betaine HCL treats. However, taking it at every meal proved too heavy for me, thus I am taking it as needed.
Contains milk :(

I usually order the Thorne brand Betaine HCL but after christmas the budget is a bit tight so i thought i would order these. I didn't notice that they contain milk till i got them. Why oh why do you put milk in these Source Naturals???? Please take the milk out. Oh and i don't even see milk on the ingredients list so i am pretty confused where the milk comes from.
