Hi there. This is my first post here and am new to the ketogenic diet. Thank you Benda for the idea to make one’s own electrolyte drink. I tried your recipe and it made my stools so loose that I was fighting to keep it in while I exercised. Sometimes I failed…
So I checked this post again. I had’t realized that you used liquid magnesium citrate (MC). It is not equivalent to powdered. The source of my MC is a product called ‘calm.’ Based on its nutritional information this is the recipe I now use and it is… better for me.
To 48 ounces of water add:
1/4 teaspoon sea salt
1/4 teaspoon potassium
3/4 teaspoon MC
I have using this as my daily drink. i carry it around with me in my car and to work. I have noticed however, that my mouth feels slightly dry and so I might reduce the salts to 1/8 teaspoon each. Your mileage may vary.
