METAGEST HCl CHALLENGE – How to Find Your Optimum Dose
When using supplemental hydrochloric acid (SpectraZyme® Metagest HCl with Pepsin) for the first few times, please be sure to follow these directions carefully. Always take Metagest HCl immediately after the meal when your normal digestive processes have started.
Day 1: Take one Metagest HCl tablet at the end of each meal all day long.
Day 2: Take two Metagest HCl tablets at the end of each meal all day long.
Day 3 – Day 7: Continue increasing by one Metagest HCl tablets per day, for each meal, until you feel a warmth in your stomach or until you reach seven Metagest HCl tablets per meal. Do not take more than seven tablets per meal.
NOTE: Drink 8 oz of water with one tablespoon of baking soda if warming is uncomfortable.
IMPORTANT: This test should not be undertaken if there is gastritis or any recent history of gastric ulceration (stomach ulcers).
