So upon WW7's suggestion, I started mixing some baking soda into my DAA to help with sides, specifically stomach upset. Lo and behold, it works exceptionally well.
I just received 200g of bulk DAA from the M&M store, and mixed in 100g of baking soda and 100g of Crystal Lite natural flavoring. I'm using 12g of this mix a day (6g DAA). A nice side benefit from adding in the baking soda is that you get a drink that's slightly fizzy.
What exactly is the mechanism here that is making it more GI friendly? Is it simply the adjustment of pH, or is it actually changing the DAA into another substance? And is it making it more (or less) absorbable? I have read some stuff via Google, but it's hard to sort out the good info from the brotelligence.
