Summary of Customer Ratings & Reviews

Customer Ratings & Reviews

Rated 4.2 out of 5 by 17 reviewers.
Rated 1 out of 5 by something's wrong I purchased this product on three occasions. The first two times the pills had a faint odor of pepsin that was fine. In the last two bottles I bought, the pills had a foul odor that reminded me of cat urine. Needless to say, the bottles went into the trash. I will not buy or recommend the Country Life brand - their quality control seems pretty unreliable. December 29, 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by Works Well I take these with all my meals, and with vitamins and minerals. It really helps with digestion, eliminating gas. Swanson has the best price around, too. September 1, 2014
Rated 3 out of 5 by hard to swallow a very large pill is hard for me to swallow, i chop them up January 1, 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by Another great product. I've been taking this product for 3+ years and it'beenvery helpful. Recently found it on Swanson's at a much better price. Am so pleased and greatful. November 23, 2013
Rated 1 out of 5 by Contains Milk Now- Reformulated I loved this for years but recently Country Life reformulated it to include cow's milk as an ingredient. The label should be clearly marked as reformulated but it wasn't-- Beware. October 8, 2013
Rated 4 out of 5 by It works great for me HCL has always been a favorite of mine and I appreciate the High Potency offered in this product at a reasonable price. I prefer capsules to tablets, but these are not difficult to get down and seem to digest easily. April 18, 2013
Rated 5 out of 5 by I love this and will continue to take! March 21, 2013
Rated 5 out of 5 by Ahh a comfortable tummy I tried this product on a whim and now don't want to be without it. I especially like it when I take a bunch of health supplement capsules and tabs at once, or for some reason eat a meal of all or mostly cooked foods. It seems to help me digest even these in comfort. September 14, 2011
Rated 5 out of 5 by best these are the best great strength, 250 in the bottle work well for me, they add the extra acid i need no adverse effects recomended August 12, 2011
Rated 5 out of 5 by Excellent Product! I have taken Betaine Hydrochloride for many years, and I can say that this is my favorite Betaine product out there. The formula is high potency, delivering double the dose of many other products. Each tablet also contains a few helper enzymes: papain, bromelain, and pepsin, making this formula complete. Each tablet has a slight glaze on it, so it goes down easy. Betaine is also known as Trimethylglycine (TMG), and is classified along with Folic Acid, B6, and B12 as a methylating agent. So, yes, this product is a TMG supplement. However, this supplement contains the hydrochloride form of Betaine, and is acidic, so buyers wanting a TMG supplement should be aware of this, and that there are other, non-acidic, forms of TMG available. Overall, this is a great Betaine HCL product. It is potent and affordable. October 13, 2010
Rated 5 out of 5 by I was having a lot of problems with my digestion. This products helps significantly. I reach for it every time I feel any digestive distress. This product is an excellent value for the price. It helps me greatly in digesting my food and I have found that I have much less digestive upset. I take 1-2 before meals. August 25, 2009
Rated 5 out of 5 by Effective Product I highly recommend this supplement for those wishing to improve their digestive health. Betaine with the addition of Bromelain - 2000 GDU's in a 500mg tablet - is a remarkably effective combination in assisting proper intestinal function. This particular product is a staple in my nutritional regimen! April 9, 2009
Rated 5 out of 5 by One of My Favotries! I have taken Betaine HCl with pepsin for years now, and I find it invaluable . If I don't take it, my digestion doesn't work nearly as well. With this product, I can enjoy many foods that otherwise I couldn't tolerate. November 2, 2007
Rated 5 out of 5 by Great Product I have trouble with my digestion and this product has been very helpful. July 30, 2007
