    Betaine HCL with Multivitamin

    Anyone know if I can combine the Betaine HCL with my multivitamin during lunch or dinner? I noticed I do not digest the vitamin pills completely. Will a multivitamin lessen the acidic effect since it may contain calcium and other alkaline vitamins? Thanks in advance.

    What happens after gastritis?

    So what happens after the inflammation from chronic gastritis is gone? Does one naturally produce more stomach acids if one was lacking that? Or is it so damaged that it can no longer function as normal? Does one need to heal the lining? Thanks in advance!

    Aspirin Pro-Drug From Willow Bark Extends Yeast Lifespan By Almost 400%

    I don't know if the active ingredient in willow bark that is responsible for this lifespan extension is salicylic acid, but it is very likely given the increase in metabolism of yeast given the willow bark extract. It is worth noting that willow bark extract was the most potent of all 10,000+...

    Anti-acid Drugs (ppi) May Cause Dementia

    The so-called Proton Pump Inhibitors (PPI) are second generation anti-acid drugs that replaced the much safer first generation H2 antagonists like fomotidine, ranitidine, cimetidine, etc. The PPIs are really bad drugs that should have never been approved considering that they provably cause...

    Confused About Acid/Alkaline Balance

    My understanding is that we should be eating foods that are rich in alkaline minerals and low in acidic minerals but at the same time I see recommendations for Colas, Apple cider vinegar, aspirin, ascorbic acid etc and they're all highly acidic.
