Summary of Customer Ratings & Reviews

Customer Ratings & Reviews

Rated 4.4 out of 5 by 16 reviewers.
Rated 1 out of 5 by 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. November 20, 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by 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. February 17, 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by effective very effective when you find your right dosage and very easy to swallow. January 1, 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by Best Betaine HCL w/ Pepsin on the market! November 18, 2013
Rated 5 out of 5 by 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. October 7, 2013
Rated 5 out of 5 by Betaine HCL Works well, clean with regard to additives, and a good dosage. September 8, 2013
Rated 5 out of 5 by 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. August 27, 2013
Rated 1 out of 5 by 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. August 6, 2013
Rated 4 out of 5 by Betaine HCl Good quality. Helps a lot with digestion. June 27, 2013
Rated 5 out of 5 by Digestive help Doctor advised me I was not absorbing nutrients. Started taking HCL and am feeling much better! June 23, 2013
Rated 5 out of 5 by 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. December 31, 2012
Rated 5 out of 5 by Non-dairy Betaine option This product has worked very well for me and no dairy to be concerned about for those with dairy allergies. November 15, 2012
Rated 5 out of 5 by Highly effective HCL This is my favorite brand of Betaine HCl. It is potent and highly effective. Swanson's provides the best price for this product. October 16, 2012
