Summary of Customer Ratings & Reviews

Customer Ratings & Reviews

Betaine HCl is rated 4.5 out of 5 by 17.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best Quality, Potency, Value There are less expensive Betaine HCL supplements. I like this one because the quality, potency, and value exceed all the others.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Smells & Tastes Terrible These capsules smell like cat urine and taste the same. It is one of the worst products I have ever used, and I am a frequent supplement buyer. I generally like Now products, but this one is so bad that I have to return it.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Superior product For several years I took this supplement in tablet form from a different vitamin company and recently switched to this capsule form from NOW Vitamins. I find the capsule form much more reliable and fast-acting -- and I'm a big fan of NOW Vitamins.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best Betaine HCL w/ Pepsin on the market!
Date published: 2013-11-19
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Works I use for age related decline in stomach acid. 3 with a large meal create a warm glow in the stomach and better digestion of nutrients. Dose depends on need.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Betaine HCL Works well, clean with regard to additives, and a good dosage.
Date published: 2013-09-08
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great pre-meal enzyme I take this anytime I plan to have a protein laden meal-- as I don't handle digesting protein very well. No after meal discomfort when I do.
Date published: 2013-08-27
Rated 1 out of 5 by from Stomach burns I don't know why but, although it should have been good for me, I had severe stomach burns and upsets. Although this might be good for others, it was not for me.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Betaine HCl Good quality. Helps a lot with digestion.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Digestive help Doctor advised me I was not absorbing nutrients. Started taking HCL and am feeling much better!
Date published: 2013-06-23
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Help I never realized how helpful taking a digestive enzyme could be until I started taking this one. And it's the best price at Swanson's then anywhere else I have found it.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Non-dairy Betaine option This product has worked very well for me and no dairy to be concerned about for those with dairy allergies.
Date published: 2012-11-15
