Some signs of low HCl include: muscle cramps, weak nails, indigestion, candida overgrowth, dry skin, chronic fatigue, and more.
I have found in my practice that many people can greatly benefit from supplementing with HCl.
Here is an easy way to determine how much your body needs:
1) Buy an HCl supplement in TABLET form.
2) Take one tablet on an empty stomach.
3) Wait 5-15 minutes. If you don't feel burning in your stomach, take another tablet.
4) Repeat step 3 until you feel a burning sensation in your stomach.
5) Your perfect dose is the # of tablets taken that caused a burning sensation minus 1.
Example: if you took 5 tablets and then felt the burning sensation, your perfect dose is 4 tablets. I recommend you recheck your dosage every few months or so.
IMPORTANT: AFTER DOING THE DOSAGE TEST ABOVE, EAT A MEAL.
