Betaine HCl Caps
This greatly aided my digestion, and worked even better when I added Swanson soil-based enzymes too.

Best HCL i've tried so far
I've started with this brand as my first HCL choice, but after a while it became a bit unpractical to order those heavy and pricey glass bottles internationally. So I've experimented a bit, and have ordered the Solaray's HCL as someone here suggested. Unfortunately, the effectiveness is nowhere near the same.
With Twinlab i took 4 pills (5 would cause burning sensation) and my digestion worked really smoothly. With Solaray i take 5 pills and there is no burning even with a smaller meal (one normal size pizza) plus my stomach feels heavy even after a few hours. I'll try six or seven next time, but it's just not as effective.
If someone has a better alternative to TwinLab, please recommend. NOW and Solaray are not cutting it.

This is an outstanding HCL product and works great. However, it is kind of pricey. For a better value and the same quality, I found Solaray HCL with Pepsin.

could be better product
When supplement manufactures claim the clinical effectiveness of their products -I am sure that at the time of the trial no excipients were used.
I gave a 3 leave rating because I am at half a bottle which seems to be working and I sincerly believe that excipients such as magnesium sterate,titanium dioxide,stearic acid etc, is best left out so that the active ingriedients of the product can be judged on it,s own merits honestly and quite possible be a better, customer friendlier product.

My husband has tried various other ways to deal with his excessive acid, but this has by far done him the best job.

Calcium interferes with my prescription iron so I like this digestive aid with my meals and know that it will not interfere with my iron.

Helps Digest Heavy Meals
I have used this product for several years. I do not take it after every meal, or even every day. I take them after I have eaten a big dinner. Usually when I go out to eat, or a meal at home like Thanksgiving Dinner!

This is a wonderful product that I have found incredibly helpful, as has a friend to whom I recommended it. I consider it a staple!
