Anyone tried hcl supplements?
Related to the zinc thread(and according to Poliquin..), high stress can cause lower hcl levels, leading to impaired zinc absorbtion, which in turn excacerbates low hcl levels.
Im also interesting in hcl as its implicated with skin issues(acne etc).

Chris Shugart followed Poli's protocol it seems, but to no major effect.
In the thread he's poli's schpeil on it.


Ive given up on almonds, at least unsoaked ones, they screw my digestion up for days. Walnuts, macas seem better.

Well, T-Nation doesn't sell HCl supplements...yet...so that could taint his results. I don't believe Shugart had any health issues, he just wanted to see what it would do for him.

There's nothing wrong with less nuts in your diet. Many people don't get along with them.
