It’s important to note that at the time of writing, very little was known about betaine HCL and how long it may take to work for your health condition.

In addition, you’ll also see that some of our betaine supplements contain pepsin, such as Lamberts Betaine HCl 324mg/Pepsin 5mg 180 Tablets, which is simply a digestive enzyme.
