All,

Has anyone heard of Betaine HCL? It is supposedly good for restoring acid in the stomach, and the right kind of acid. If anyone has heard of it, or knows of a good link for me to do further study, I'd be very grateful.

Thanks,
Brenda

Hi Brenda,

I have been on betaine HCl for almost 3 years, because I had a stomach acid test done, and I have almost none. According to my doctor that is common with Celiac. Almost all of the people at my clinic take it, and it helps to absorb nutrients. In fact my doctor has many articles he has written on it...here is one

THank you, Rachel. I will definitely check that link out. I am on Aciphex, so I have obviously been diagnosed with too much acid....but I heard that the Betaine helps counteract that, and replace it with "good" acid.

Thanks for the info!!
