Rated 1 out of 5 by milosmom 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.

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.

Rated 1 out of 5 by Serena44 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.

Rated 4 out of 5 by GrandmaSage 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.

Rated 5 out of 5 by mevina 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.

Rated 5 out of 5 by sainthilary 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.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Shadyflwrs 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.

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!

Rated 5 out of 5 by Amjoba 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.
