great product
 February 27, 2014
"Works great and is by far, the best priced HCL I have found. For those of us who don't make our own HCL, it is a relief to find an affordable product that works from a great website."

Take before eating meat
 January 26, 2014
"I only take this digestive enzyme before I eat meat. I seem to only need the extra acid when digesting meat. I cut the tablets in half and only take half of one tablet before eating meat and that seems to work best. The directions say take 2 full tablets, but half of one seems to be enough. This is a great product at a low price. You get enough tablets to last you a long time.
I use another digestive enzyme without HCL when eating breakfast or any meal that doesn't contain meat.

Solid product, great value
 December 3, 2013
"These work as well as other brands and they are the cheapest I could find anywhere. Contrary to another review I found the circular tablets very easy to swallow. The peppermint glaze is a nice touch since pepsin has a nasty taste."

Finally something that works for me!
 April 12, 2013
"I've tried other digestive supplements before - even ones with HCL in them, but I never really saw a big difference. Until now. Sometimes I"ll take 3 instead of the 2 they say to take with meals and this really helps. I used to bloat quite a bit - I hate that! I still bloat a little bit, but I just ordered some probiotics, too - I'm sure my gut flora is way off. Hopefully, those will also make a big difference! I should be good to go with the both of them..."

Works great
 March 1, 2013
"I am very pleased with this product. We are on the GAPS diet, and
still had problems with digestion after 5 months on the diet, until we added this product. Now we are almost completely normal in our digestion. I did not find this product hard to swallow, just make sure you drink a little first to wet your throat!
