This is a specialist product for aiding digestion which supplies a relevant level of betaine, a compound that releases hydrochloric acid, plus pepsin, an enzyme that breaks down proteins in food.
The stomach naturally produces hydrochloric acid to keep its contents acidic. This is important for effective digestion by enzymes and for killing pathogenic bacteria present in the food so that the ingested food is sterilised. It also allows Vitamin B12 to be extracted from the food we eat. However as we age, we tend to produce less acid and so a supplement can be useful to help replace some of the lost acidity.

"I don’t think this product is going to help me"

I haven’t noticed any difference, sadly, in my digestive problems when taking this product. I was very hopeful but perhaps my digestive issues aren’t caused by low acid.

Thank you for taking the time to leave a review.

If you have not done so already, it may be worth discussing your symptoms with your doctor, as they would be best placed to advise you whether your symptoms are being caused by low stomach acid.

"Seen some improvement but I’m not there yet!"

Had IBS for 30 years. Tried everything inc lactose free, gluten free, low FODMAP, low carb, Paleo, etc. Realised the link with IBS and SIBO and recently had endoscopy and colonoscopy tests revealing GORD and acid reflux and gastric inflammation. Prescribed P** which caused diarrhoea - long story short, they made me 150% worse. So doing the opposite, building back up my stomach acid (my defence against parasites and other invaders) and HAVING SUCCESS! A*****ds and P** are a multi billion pound industry and they are causing harm for most people!! Challenge the docs, research low stomach acid, fight back and get your health back. Need more time to know if I’m 100% right! We need stomach acid, it’s there for a reason as it helps digest protein and absorb calcium amongst other things. Low calcium (low absorption rates) = osteoporosis. It’s logical. It’s out there for people who are interested in getting better to discover. Retrain the doctors in nutritional health!!

"A life saver for me!"

I had suffered with terrible acid reflux for several months and was prescribed O********e which made things worse. I read reviews on this product and thought worth a try. The results have been amazing. I saw a difference in my digestive system almost at once. 2 weeks later I have no sign of acid reflux, my joints feel less achy and I have my energy level back. I did adjust my diet and now gradually introducing food I had avoided back and seems to be ok. Fantastic product. Seems as we get older we produce less stomach acid. PPI not the answer in that case.
