the betaine hcl worked great for me...but i was thinking that its not really a natural thing available to humans throughout history...and as a naturalist/ organic farmer i appriciate that quality. and i wish i had an option that worked and was natural.
maybe bitters are it.
im now considering taking these planetary bitters.
my great uncle from switzerland harvested wild alps gentian, used it and touted it as a touchstone to his good health. i saw him myself a strong burly fully functioning menuisier (chalet builder) of 78 years.
he made it into a tincture with strong 40% alcohol and took a shot of it each day.
he also had a shot of AVC every morning.
i happen to be intolerant to alcohol and vinegar...though i havent tried either in months.
