After a month+ of horrendous gas, shits, and other problems I looked around and ran into betaine HCL and decided to run a HCL test.
I am following Charles Poliquin’s guideline and using his supplement Digest Force. I am on my second day of my Betaine HCL test, starting at 200mg and now up to 1000mg (5 pills). I believe I still haven’t got that burn feeling in my stomach yet.
Is this burn pretty noticeable or?
Also, after the first dosage of 200mg is it fine to take it half way through a shake and some solid foods? For example my nighttime shake last night I took 600mg HCL halfway through my 50g protein shake also with handful of almonds. Then this morning my shake was - 50g pro, 1 cup oats, half a banana and the other half banana I ate solid with NPB. Or did I screw myself a little and the HCL should only be taken with ALL solid foods? I’d figure I would still experience the burn regardless of all solid food or not.
