However, I think slippery elm works even better. It will help with healing your gut and supposedly it helps heals ulcers as well. You should read about it, it works wonders on me. http://www.all4naturalhealth.com/benefits-of-slippery-elm.html
Isn’t it a solution to a different problem? It soothes the mucosa of the entire GI tract and can relieve constipation, but I don’t think it’ll help with stomach acid problems. If anything, wouldn’t it work synergistically with HCl by protecting from gastritis?
