There is a trace amount of saccharin in the Magnesium Citrate.
Not enough to interrupt a fast.
When you mix up the KetoAide you’re mixing 24 oz of water and literally a half a tablespoon of the Magnesium Citrate.
A half a tbsp in 24 oz of water! That’s one and a half TEASPOONS.
People ask me often about my KetoAide that I have been sharing for a couple years now on social media.
I use the recipe for my IDM clients and recommend it in my monthly group fasts on their website. Dr. Jason Fung and Megan Ramos approve of it because of its benign affect.
Why? Because the amount of saccharin in a half a tablespoon of magnesium citrate mixed with 24 oz of water is absolutely miniscule and TRACE. Not something that you can taste even, and definitely not something that would interrupt autophagy (which can interrupted by protein, such as in bone broth)
The trace amount of saccharin in the Magnesium Citrate does not raise insulin at all and it definitely does not cause an insulin spike.
Again, Megan and Jason approved my posting of the KetoAide recipe in the IDM communities and on my monthly Membership Community Group Fast.
I’m so happy my little inexpensive invention has helped so many over the years.
People tell me all the time how It’s made fasting a breeze for them.
If you are still concerned, don’t use it.
I see no reason for concern.
