Kind of a strange thing about Morton’s Lite Salt is that before I ever went keto, I used Morton’s Lite Salt (Keto-Aide ingredient) practically my whole life, I always thought it was healthier and probably why I never experienced the dreaded Keto Flu, just one of the strange little things you realize after going keto!
Same here, I never got what folks call Keto-Flu, and I don’t think I was taking Keto-Aide for the first 6-8 weeks or so? … From what I’ve read of others, I think I would have known.
Haha! I was always anti-lite salt because I felt salt is perfectly healthy. (Not that I was eating enough.) So you did the right thing for the wrong reasons and I did the wrong thing for the right reasons.
Ketoaide stopped my keto flu in its tracks. Im finding that switching from a magnesium supplement in tablet form to the magnesium citrate has increased its effectiveness also. I have a few chronic diseases that end up causing muscle issues so this was a big help there. I actually appreciate that more than the help with keto flu
@Brenda I am assuming this mixture would be fine to drink in a more concentrated form, yes? Reason being, I have a 36 oz Yeti tumbler that I would like to mix three servings in(so essentially a serving to 12 oz. of water instead of 24 oz.). I drink a lot of green tea and water by itself as well so I will be getting plenty of water.
I can’t tell ya what Brenda might say, but my guess would be that it really shouldn’t matter. I use a 20 oz. bottle every day myself, and as soon as make it the mixture up, I simply drink it straight down and then leave the house with my water only bottle. But I have done it in a simple 8 oz. cup before, and then like mentioned, just drink plenty of water afterwards. … If anything, it just going to be a bit stronger tasting in a smaller amount, where the larger amount of water will dilute it more. … If I were to carry the mixture bottle with me out the door, I think I would stick with the larger amount too, but I already drink plenty of liquids throughout the day, so just want to get the ingredients in and then just enjoy the water.
I do the same in the evening once I get home, on days I’m Fasting. So one daily and two on Fast days.
If anything just look at the amount of intake if you will be getting, if you plan on doing this daily. I haven’t crunched the numbers since I’ve been doing this for a while now (1 and 2), but think I’ve read others mentioning drinking 3 a day? But I’ve only ever done 2 myself and seems to work well for me.
Brenda has stated many times she drinks only two of the bottles per day. And she always warns about getting too much potassium. If you go to the top of this thread you’ll see her comments there.
Has anyone used this (or can advise if it would be ok?):
hello Brenda, I do not consume artificial sweetners so I cant have the magnesium citrate .
Can I use magnesium sulfate instead ?
and how much is OK?
Thank you, Marianne
Magnesium citrate is just … magnesium citrate. It’s not an artificial sweetener, nor should it contain any. There are many brands that don’t.
If the magnesium citrate you have contains ingredients you don’t want, just find another brand which is a more pure formulation. There are countless out there. As long as the elemental magnesium content is about the same as the original recipe, you should be fine.
I bought this on Amazon, IT"S HUGE BOTTLE! It has Magnesium Citrage only
I guess I was not clear. All the magnesium citrate in the stores in my area have saccharin in it which I refuse to consume. I was hoping I could substitute Epsom salt instead. I will have to order online. TY
thank you I ordered the bottle today !!
I haven’t found Epsom salts where I am, but I keep my eye open for them because a nice foot soak seems like a lovely relaxing way to get my magnesium. Baths are recommended too, but I don’t have a tub.
Wow, and I thought it was just me!
Epsom salts are usually with the laxatives in the drug store, most of the time on the bottom shelf.
