    What is Betaine HCL With Pepsin?


    BetaineHCL is a source of hydrochloric acid,. Betaine HCl supplements can be used to increase levels of hydrochloric acid in the stomach and help activate pepsin.

        Usually I have no trouble swallowing pills and often do so without water. Because of the shape of these they are difficult to swallow even with water. I have to cut them in half just to get them down. Ick.

          Comments about the Vitamin Shoppe Betaine HCL With Pepsin - 100 Tablets:

          The product has worked okay for me, not as good as I was hoping. The pill size is indeed hard to swallow and if it goes at certain angle, the edges really hurt my already sensitive throat. It's the first time I've seen a pill shaped this way. I've never had any issues taking pills, this is the first.

            Comments about the Vitamin Shoppe Betaine HCL With Pepsin - 100 Tablets:

            I have had terrible heartburn but never when I remember to take the betaine HCL. I take 1 tablet only with meals that include meat. I don't find it hard to swallow as others have mentioned even though some pills give me trouble. This is a large round tablet; I have trouble swallowing capsule shaped pills.

              The Twin Lab capsule I use was out of stock so I chose this product. Instead of an easy-to-swallow capsule I got a very large (thick) tablet. Requires more than one swallowing attempt to get it down. Why not a capsule?

                Comments about the Vitamin Shoppe Betaine HCL With Pepsin - 100 Tablets:

                I started having horrible stomach issues. After eating I would have belching and bad gas. I started doing research and all my symptoms pointed to low acid. I got these and felt IMMEDIATE relief when taking with a meal. It was the first meal I had eaten in weeks where I was gas free.

                They are large and not the easiest to swallow. I take 6 with my high-protein meals so I thought getting a capsule would be easier. I tried Twin Labs brand capsules. They did NOT work as well as the VS brand. I am thinking there is something to be said for not having any sort of coating or capsule around the supplement. So I am going back to this brand.

                Works fine, but tablets are dry and the size of a toothpaste cap. Tried it for price, but you get what you pay for. It does work though. I take 3-4 per meal, so not so good for me.

                    Will this help with my acid reflux?
                    Andy L on May 11, 2013
                    Best Answer: yes,I used to take papaya enzymes but this seems to work much better. I actually take 3 after each big meal but it depends on you and how well you digestion is. You want to take enough until you feel a slight warm sensation and then back off one. For example I didn't feel anything until I took 4 at a time, so now I take 3.

                    Is this chewable or swallow? The peppermint oil and the shape are throwing me off...

                    I keep belching, doctors didn't know what was wrong with me so just never got back to me, looked this up, will it work for my constant belching ?
                    Ashley F on Jul 1, 2015
                    Best Answer: I have used Betaine HCI (1 tablet) in tandem with the full spectrum Multi-Enzyme formula (2 tablets) product for a number of years to combat nausea after eating. It has been very effective. I initially took it with every meal but once my system settled down I only use it occasionally now. I don't know if it will help belching, but it might...it's worth a try. The Vitamin Shoppe has a good reputation for quality product with which I totally agree.

                    Does it make any sense to restore the required acidity level in my stomach if I have a hiatal hernia (sphincter not closing)? All that would happen is getting more asid relux up my throat.
