I ran out yesterday and bought a bottle. It is 650mg Betaine HCl and 130mg Pepsin(1:10000). I tried one last night with dinner and didn't feel anything. I may be safe to say that I am at least a little low. Today I will be trying 2 at lunch, and if it doesn't bother me, I will do 2 at dinner too. Then tomorrow I will up it to 3. I really hope I don't need too many. From what I have read, people can recover the ability to produce adequate stomach acid. Likely, once the body is digesting food properly again, the body absorbs the nutrients that it needs to produce the stomach acid, hopefully breaking the cycle. I hope this happens for me. I would love to break the cycle of poor digestion and chronic candida.
Using the peppermint oil to reduce the SIBO has done wonders already. I view the HCl as a maintenance program.
