I am having a serving of betaine HCL 2-3 times per day with meals to provide stomach acid.
I generally take Betaine HCI along with potassium chloride and try to include some sea salt in the meal. These things being the component of gastric acid;
Gastric acid, gastric juice or stomach acid, is a digestive fluid formed in the stomach and is composed of hydrochloric acid (HCl), potassium chloride (KCl) and sodium chloride (NaCl). The acid plays a key role in digestion of proteins, by activating digestive enzymes, and making ingested proteins unravel so that digestive enzymes break down the long chains of amino acids.
Sounds like you're moving in the right direction though, great to hear!
