Possible Outcomes when you take this are ::: (1) You Don’t Notice Anything: If you do not notice any difference it is most likely that you have low stomach acid levels.
:::: (2) You Notice Indigestion: If you notice a burning, hotness or heaviness in your chest then these are signs you have adequate stomach acid levels and shouldn't take this at the moment.
I really like the dose is lower than in other betaines, so I can afford to accustom my sensitive stomach to HCL supplementation and build a dose which is suitable for it at my own pace. If only it were in a capsules form, it would be my regular purchase.
I worked with a health practitioner and she was able to determine that I had low stomach acid which was affecting my digestion. So she had me start taking this with each of my meals and it's really helped a lot
I got these for my sister and my husband since they were both having issues with heartburn. I didn’t want them constantly neutralizing their stomach acid with Tums, so I got this for them to use instead. They both said they work amazingly.
First time I ordered any betaine hcl with it, it worked really well. no acid reflux but later when I switched to Now's betaine HCL I had to be very careful with that even sometimes only 1 Now's betaine HCL giving me bad acid reflux but Nature's life 's 4-6 tablets was good to me .strange but for me personally Nature's Life,Betaine HCL suited me well . I also tried Doctor's Best betaine but again it was too strong to handle. so I prefer low quantity for me.
Great stuff...I've been using it for years. I had terrible acid indigestion. A natural health doctor said if I'd take a single tab of Betaine HCI with each meal my body would quit over-producing acid. It sounded counter-intuitive to me. But I'd do anything to avoid getting hooked on acid blocker drugs. So I tried it. And it worked like a charm.
If you are experiencing acid reflux, I highly recommend trying this product. It may seem odd that you are taking pills with hydrochloric acid when you have acid reflux, but believe me, this works. The problem is that there is too little acid in the stomach so it can't digest stuff properly and then what little acid there is in the stomach comes back up into the throat and lungs. It will take a little while to see an effect. In fact, it may make you feel worse the first couple of times trying it. (It did for me) Don't stop taking it though. I don't feel perfect but I feel much better now than before I started taking it. Also recommend taking probiotics and candida cleanse supplements along with it as well.
