    The "official" review on this site is ludicrous. As one other consumer mentioned, the reason that there is so little research, etc. is that no one stands to make billions of dollars from patenting it and selling it for 100x the cost to produce it. I can tell you based upon my 5 years of experience with betaine HCL that it is perfectly safe (as long as you do not have ulcers of any ... Show Full Comment

    I had acid reflux that seriously affected my asthma and esophagus, and was prescribed the purple ppi for 10 years, however the condition grew worse. Finally I got and uncontrolled cough and my asthma could not be controlled either. While under the care of an internationally known hospital for my symptoms, I got the advice from someone else to try Betaine HCL with Pepsin. The 6 month long coughin ... Show Full Comment

    I took this for burning tongue syndrome. Not only did it take that away, it cured my geographic tongue and it made all my sensitive gums completely calm down. My whole mouth is completely different. And the only thing I changed was to add this to my daily routine.

It help a bit but not a lot. about 7 years ago, I was told my condition could be caused by not enough acid and recommended to try Betaine hcl. I tried it and it worked really well. Initially I took it immediately after each meal. As I get ... Show Full Comment
