How can I make magnesium glycinate more acidic?

For everybody who is taking PPIs - ginger juice is way more stronger (and safer). So if you need an antacid - ginger juice all the way.

However, my question is about magnesium glycinate. It appears that it is also an antacid. However, I am trying to increase my stomach acid, not decrease it.

Is there anything I can do to make it more acidic?

If I put a lot of lemon juice - will it acidify it?

I will experiment further and will let you know about bubbles and taking it one hour after meal. Thank you so much.

I really don't think a 100 mg or 200 mg dose of magnesium glycinate will neutralize that much stomach acid. If you are concerned I suggest taking the magnesium glycinate an hour after a meal. By that time most/all of the food in your stomach should have passed through. With luck the magnesium glycinate will provide a bit of relief from leftover stomach acid (causing heartburn, reflux). But really, I don't think magnesium glycinate is enemy for those suffering from low stomach acid.

Okay, now you have to do it and tell us whether or not there were bubbles.

There should not be bubbles from lemon juice mixing with mag glycinate. There's no carbonate to turn into CO2. All you'd get is mag citrate and glycine, neither are going to bubble.

It will neutralize it. You should see bubbles. Just try it with a little bit on something that will contrast well- like a black plate or something, so you can see if bubbles form. Then you can work out how much lemon juice you need.
