This supplement was recommended for symptoms I have resulting from Hashimoto's. It has worked wonders for me. I don't feel blah and exhausted after having protein and I'm regular for the first time in a long time!

Mentioned reflux to my doctor and he put me on Protonix (Pantoprazole). After a few weeks my reflux was worse and my rosacea flare ups were the worst I've ever had (this is going back 20 years). Stopped the Protonix and started taking this Betaine HCL/Pepsin and it seems to be helping. I'm still ramping up dosage (up to 6 capsules at dinner), which I think my be my max, some discomfort and what appears to be acid reflux so will scale back. I believe I have what is considered "silent reflux" which does not generate the burning from acid reflux, but a phlegm/cough throughout the day. It appears this can be caused by too little stomach acid, so the HCL seems to be helping. Regarding rosacea, there is information that indicates that low stomach acid may cause skin problems like rosacea. The HCL seems to helped reduce my flare ups following the Protonix issue mentioned above. I believe rosacea is triggered primarily from GI/stomach issues and hope to see further improvement with the HCL going forward. I give 4 stars only because I have only been taking for a few weeks but could update to a 5 star at a later date.

I have been using these for about a month now. I take more than one capsule, anywhere from 2-4 per meal, depending on the macronutrient makeup. I have flare ups SIBO, and these help immensely!!! If you feel like you have issue digesting foods, and your stomach delays in emptying, these are a great supplement for you. I will take one in between meals if I had a meal heavy in animal protein, and am taking a longer time digesting. I don’t recommend taking before bed.

Taking it for a week now and it does seem to have some effect on my digestion issues. I will continue to use and report later.


It really helps with my reflux
