can Cayenne pepper be used instead of HCL to aid in digestion?


#2

no one knows?

i don't think hcl does anything...I remember there was a gastrologist who argued against poliquin on here about hcl being worthless and potentially dangerous...

I don't see how cayenne can help with digestion either really...pure capsaicin does have some other health benefits...

i would look into digestive enzymes and eliminating foods that cause digestive issues...
