    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.
