Good luck and please let us know what happens. Here is why vinegar or lemon helps (either one), or Hydrochloric acid. Because they are all different forms of acid. Regardless of which one you take, it will improve the acidity of your stomach. Some are better than others, the little acid pills I take are Hydrochloric Acid with Pepsin, it works the best.
But all this means is I just take less. To get the same affect of one of my acid pills with lemon, I would have to take 2 straight shots. However, when I eat a fatty Greek salad, I make sure their is plenty of vinegar in the dressing and some of those spicy vinegar soaked peppercinis, and I DON"T need any acid!
The pills are so easy to carry around, its far better than lemon or vinegar (vinegar taste the worst). I have even used a bottle of Organic lemon juice which worked better than vinegar. (I tried those little fake plastic lemons with juice but they are weak).But you have to prove it to yourself first. Neddy if it low acid, please let everyone on the boards know. The only reason I answer these posts is because my doc told me this is a VERY common problem and most people are wasting their money on Nexium and Prevacid for heartburn, etc.
oh yeah, the pills I use are from Metganics called Metagest. I have tried may others but these are the best and the strongest. I don't sell them, I just like them.
Good luck again.
