KetoAide homemade


(Brenda Zorn) #1

It is very important that you check with your doctor before consuming Lite Salt, as it contains potassium. Do not over consume Lite Salt! I normally only drink two bottles of KetoAide a day and only add 1/4 teaspoon Lite Salt to each bottle.
Do not supplement this with additional teaspoons of Lite Salt! That’s too much potassium! Again check with your physician before consuming Lite Salt.

350 mg potassium

Anyone seen magnesium citrate sold that like in Australia?

(Brenda Zorn) #4

@richard is it sold in pharmacies there?

(Kathy L) #5

Yea - not sure where to find it either - ? Pharmacy? Grocery store? Amazon?


Ethical Nutrients Mega Magnesium Powder Citrus 450g at Chemist Warehouse or other Chemists in Australia. Ebay too.
Think this is the right type of Magnesium. Hope the information helps


I bought Morton’s Lite Salt yesterday and noticed it contains magnesium carbonate (along with potassium iodide and potassium chloride).

Is it still a good idea to use the separate magnesium the recipe calls for?

(Brenda Zorn) #8

Yes @Allison.
The magnesium carbonate is only a anti-caking agent.

I think we had a convo about this on another thread, didn’t we? Lol


Yep! That question has been answered.

What is this KetoAide actually for?

I’ve been drinking water with Berocca’s in them but I know they have aspartame and Phenylketonuurics in them.
They also have Magnesium carbonate and magnesium sulfate dihdrate.
I have no idea if they are good or bad for me. Probably bad, but there are a lot of vitamins that are supposed to be good for you too.
What are the chemicals in the KetoAide for?


(Brenda Zorn) #11

The salts in KetoAide are a supplement to our electrolytes on the ketogenic diet.

…in a very bioavailable form.
Read the “Keto Bible” , a book authored by Phinney and Volek titled "The Art and Science of Low Carbohydrate Living ". They also have a blog. Supplements are discussed.

Search “supplements” in this forum as well!

Holy crap, I just had a flashback to eighth grade chemistry…the colors, the colors!

Holy crap, that sounds just like the bunson burner. Make it stop, make it stop!

science lesson for the day.

Na+ Sodium: Sodium ions are necessary for regulation of blood and body fluids, transmission of nerve impulses, heart activity, and certain metabolic functions. Physiologically, it exists as an ion in the body.

C12H10Mg3O14: Magnesium citrate: Magnesium Citrate is the citrate salt of the element magnesium with cathartic activity. The cathartic action of magnesium cations appears to result, in part, from osmotically mediated water retention, which subsequently stimulates peristalsis. In addition, magnesium ions may also stimulate the activity of nitric oxide (NO) synthase and increase the biosynthesis of the phospholipid proinflammatory mediator platelet activating factor (PAF) in the gut. NO may stimulate intestinal secretion via prostaglandin- and cyclic GMP-dependent mechanisms while PAF produces significant stimulation of colonic secretion and gastrointestinal motility.

K, Potassium: Potassium maintains intracellular tonicity, is required for nerve conduction, cardiac, skeletal and smooth muscle contraction, production of energy, the synthesis of nucleic acids, maintenance of blood pressure and normal renal function. This agent has potential antihypertensive effects and when taken as a nutritional supplement may prevent hypokalemia.

thanks for this photo…not sure how i missed it…
i kept thinking i was looking at the wrong stuff since the walmart pharmacist was horrified that i would use this for anything but pooping…said it was “dangerous” and i’d be “in trouble”…that’s what i get for asking! lol

i’ve seen the mag citrate at the $.99 store too

(Jane Reed) #17

I confess, I can’t bear to drink salty water or to even lick salt from my finger. I bought some pink salt recently and moistened my finger slightly to taste just how “marvelous” it was. Yes it had a slightly different taste than sea salt; then I had to spit it out else gag on the saltiness.

I can eat very salty food but the straight stuff disgusts me and salty water is horrid, too.

Curiously, I can drink a cup of bouillon which has over 1000 mg. of sodium. Salt alone? Not a chance.

(Brenda Zorn) #18

Lol. I’d understand if you planned to drink the whole bottle in one go.
A half tablespoon in 24 ounces of water won’t make you poo. It will, however, provide you with 75 mg of very bioavailable magnesium. Our daily requirement is 350mg, so this amount in a few bottles of ketoaide a day is a great supplement!

i even told him what my intention was and he was like
" :flushed: nooooooo" so i thought maybe i was looking in the wrong section/at the wrong stuff :joy:

it it is he that is wrong lol

(Brenda Zorn) #20

He’s a know-it-all.
He should do some reading.
Magnesium citrate comes in tablet form as well.
To supplement magnesium. Not for pooping.
