Needed?: Ask yourself if you really need these-your body makes plenty of acid already, as well as digestive enzymes, so unless you have a proven deficiency, stop taking them and see if your symptoms disappear! if not, see your GI doc to investigate for other causes of dyspepsia.
Created for people with ongoing healthcare needs but benefits everyone.
