Dr. Berg talks about the relationship between vitamin B3 and stomach acid. Betaine hydrochloride, apple cider vinegar and intermittent fasting are best remedies for low hydrochloric acid and vitamin B3 (Niacin) can help you make more stomach acid. B3 is involved in over 300 enzymes in the body. If you have subclinical deficiency or you have B3 but it isn’t enough, the body will use B3 in a certain priority system. If you are deficient in B3, you may not have all the deficiency symptoms. Apple cider vinegar usually works for bloating, acid reflux, GERD, burping, belching, gastroparesis etc. but there is a specific condition where it will not work, and that is when you are B3 deficient.

There is a condition called B3 Dependency where the body needs more B3 whether it’s the stress that is causing this or the microbes that are depleting your reserves. Tryptophan is another source of vitamin B3. B3 is also necessary to the production of ATP which is the energy currency of the mitochondria in the stomach cells that make hydrochloric acid.
