  • Digestive Support!

    NOW® Betaine HCl is formulated to support proper digestive conditions in the stomach. Hydrochloric Acid (HCl) is normally produced in the stomach‚ where it assists protein digestion by activating pepsin‚ helps to maintain a healthy balance of gut flora‚ and stimulates the release of intestinal enzymes. Pepsin is a protease produced in the stomach that partially breaks down proteins 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.

    This is very good

    I've tried a couple of brands and Betaine HCL by NOW Foods is the most effective one. I have low stomach acid and needed a higher mg and this was it.


    I would recommend this item to a friend.

    This pepsin is porcine (pig) derived.

    I wish this rather important fact for me was indicated on the bottle.. I would have not bought Betaine HCL by NOW.


    Pros

      The hydrochloric acid.

    Cons

      Pepsin from a pig.

    trusted brand

    I often purchase Now Foods vitamins etc. My husband had been using a more expensive version of Betaine HCL and when the price went up again we switched to Now Foods, which seems to be working just as well.

    It works for me!!!

    I don't get heartburn, but I can't digest meat/food to well, and when I don't, I look bloated/pregnant. Betaine HCLby NOW Foods works very well for these issues. I am so glad they work, and it is cost effective too. I take one before each meal, and I'm I'm good to go. I seen after ordering these, they also, make one with enzymes in it as well, I will order those next time, and give them a try.


    Pros

      They do, what they say they will do!!!

    Cons


    I would recommend this item to a friend.

    Strong for digestion!

    Betaine HCL by NOW has a good amount of pepsin. Helps digest and extract the nutrients of the food. Good stuff! Gotta find your personal amount, but good for high protein meals.

    Excellent when taken correctly.

    Betaine HCL by NOW helps me digest protein which can be difficult after age 50 as stomach acid tends to become low and this effects digestion of protein. It is important to only take Betaine with a protein meal (at least 15g of protein) otherwise it will cause stomach distress (heartburn) . Also, although the directions say to take at beginning of meal, I have found it best to take it mid meal. When I take this I am not bloated and uncomfortable after a meal and no heartburn, also effective elimination. I don't need to take Zantac daily since I've started taking Betaine HCL with Pepsin.


    Pros

      Decreases bloating.

    Cons


    I would recommend this item to a friend.
