Natural Factors Betaine HCL 500mg 

 

As we get older, our stomach tends to produce less stomach acid needed to break down the food we eat, making it hard to get the most out of our food. Betaine hydrochloride, derived from beets, supports healthy digestion. Betaine Hydrochloride creates a favorable digestive environment in the stomach by providing a supplemental source of hydrochloric acid. 

Benefits:

    • Derived from beets
    • Fenugreek included to aid digestion
    • Vegetarian-friendly
    • Creates a favourable digestive environment

Directions: 2 capsules at mealtime, 3 times per day or as directed by a health professional.

In conjunction with digestive enzymes and DGL it helps manage my GERD

After a year of modifying my eating and trying out various supplements I have found that I can manage my GERD (Gastro-Esophageal Reflux Disease) by taking a DGL before I eat and digestive enzymes and Betaine HCL at first bite (literally). This has allowed me to get off of proton pump inhibitors like Nexium which have very very bad long term side effects, osteoporosis, cancer, mineral deficiency etc. Bare in mind that GERD can be a product of to little acid for digestion or too much. If you have too little you body will over supply so the Betaine works by supplying the extra acid that allows you body to stop overcompensating. So for some people with GERD this will work and for others not. You have to try it. Along with Foodstyle modifications. I cut out a lot of Dairy, starches, and grains. My diet when it isn't the Christmas fat, sugar, and excess of everything season, is basically nut milks, nut butters, alternative grain crackers (in moderation) some jam and sugar, but the bulk is simply vegetables and some type of lean protein. If I have eggs they are hard boiled. The vegetables are often raw - salad form - with some fat and protein. No fat with a salad can aggravate GERD. So try olive oil, some hard boiled egg, some nuts, or some protein with your salad, as most protein has some kind of fat to it that will help. I hope this helps, I have been tortured by GERD for years now and it's a relief not to be taking the dangerous pharmaco-therapeutic route anymore. Good luck and no matter what, don't give up! With persistence you will find your own way!!!!

Saved me

2 years ago I stopped being able to eat, everything hurt and I lost over 100 pounds while sitting sleeping and starving. My doctors weren't listening to me so off to google I went and learned about Betaine HCL and thought it was worth a try. I'm am very happy to say that my digestive processes work once again. For the first time in 2 years I'm feeling hunger again and am able to eat more than a few ounces at a time because there is now room. Still have a lot of food sensitivities but we are in early days yet. I ordered a bottle to give it a try, chose this brand because of the fenugreek, loved it so much that when this product went on sale I bought a bunch.

Terrible

I have been taking NOW HCL with pepsin for about two years now off and on when I need it. It has been a miracle pill in keeping my GERD in check.

I am not sure if this supplement just didn't work for me or it is because the lack of pepsin but it was terrible. Unfortunately my health food store was out of NOW so I went with this as my GERD was acting up. I was taking about 15 pills per day with minimal relief. After about the 6th day I could not deal with the burning sensation anymore so I went to a store that sold NOW HCL. I have since got home, taken 3 NOW HCL pills and feel MUCH better within about 15 minutes.

What works for one person doesn't necessarily work for another. Regardless I give these 0 out of 5 stars!!

Hi Phil, I am so sorry that the Natural Factors product did not work for you! The Natural Factors product does not contain Pepsin, so that could be a reason as to why it did not work for you. We do carry the NOW HCL if you ever needed to buy it again! Thank you for the feedback. We really appreciate it. Have a wonderful day, -Petra
