Brief Answer:
The makers claim but studies with no evidence.

Detailed Answer:

Hello,

I have reviewed your query and here is my advice.

Betaine HCL is only a supplement to deliver extra HCL to the stomach. Though manufacturers claim to aid in digestion there is no solid evidence backing this claim. still it is not clear how this supplement acts on food.
