    I need some help understanding one of the nutrition programs: Neurotype 3, HIGH CARBS MASS GAIN DIET. There’s something in the diet, presumably a supplement, called “HCL”. I can find no exposition of this acronym. If it was “HCl” (lowercase “l”), it would at least be clear that it’s hydrochloric acid, but even then it doesn’t do much to narrow it down: there’s betaine HCl, creatine HCl, acetyl-L-carnitine HCl…. The context, “OPTIMIZE HCL/DIGESTION,” suggests betaine HCl, but that uppercase “L” is haunting me.

    Hydrochloric Acid supplement for digestion.

    Thanks, aramolson. However, I don’t think that really narrows it down, unless it means to find anything at all advertised as being for digestion which also has the letters “HCL” somewhere on the package. If so, betaine HCl certainly fits the bill, except that helping with digestion seems to be the one reported benefit for which there isn’t any evidence, at least according to WebMD: <a href=”https://www.webmd.com/vitamins/ai/ingredientmono-312/betaine-hydrochloride”>https://www.webmd.com/vitamins/ai/ingredientmono-312/betaine-hydrochloride</a>

    I’d probably just go with a broad spectrum digestive enzyme. Make sure it has amylase as well as peptidases / trypsin / chymotrypsin etc
