I scanned through the replies on this post and I don’t see anywhere where anyone has made a concentrate.
What I’ve done with this recipe was calculate how many “Servings” one bottle of Magnesium Citrate should provide and then calculated the equivalent amount of Lite Salt. I combined the salt and Magnesium into one bottle (difficult because it was a lot of salt and it is slightly effervescent). Most of the salt dissolved but it requires a shake every time I take a serving. Since I’m not a fan of salty water I mix a serving with shot (1-2 oz) water and then chase the electrolytes with plain water.
In Australia I can’t buy potassium supplements and I noticed that Thomas Delauer (from www.youtube.com/watch?v=mmt6kdcGcXI) uses a smidgen of cream of tartar in his water for a potassium supplement.
I use these:
The site is UK but the product seems to be made in the US
I’ve found lite salt in Coles and Woolworths but the Health food store had never heard of it
I was a bit worried about the Anti-caking Agent (554) in Diet Rite Lite Salt. I managed to buy some Potassium Citrate capsules (Now brand) on eBay.
I use cream of tartar for potassium. It’s easily available, and no fillers, or anticaking chemical crap agents. I usually use 1/4-1/2 tsp in a cup of water with a 1/2 tsp of redmond real salt, and when not fasting the juice from a lemon.
I went looking for the same thing. I have made about 4 oz of concentrate with lemon juice as flavoring that I have been carrying around in 1 oz bottles to dilute with fresh water as necessary so that I have the ability to turn water into wine…I mean ketoade…on the fly!
I was wondering if anyone had any thoughts on the stability of a mixed concentrate? There was a lot of fizzing when I mixed the raw ingredients, but I will be honest, I am stronger in my biology than my chemistry. I haven’t noticed a difference in the taste of the concentrate, or the color or smell, but I am curious about if mixing and storage of undiluted ingredients of @brenda 's recipe causes a chemical reaction that makes it less bioavailable as an electrolyte. I will do some more research on this but I am mooooooore than happy to defer to any chemists in the room! Meanwhile, I have already hooked my neighbor on ketoade when she was complaining of a headache earlier and it miraculously (science) abated her symptoms. I think that means that I have officially performed my first keto-assisted medical intervention? lol
I use a magnesium powder supplement mixed with lite salt, so I assume it’s pretty stable. I was going to look for the liquid next time though as I hate the fruity flavours that manufacturers insist on mixing into powdered supplements (and I’m sure the sweetener isn’t doing me any favours either).
That’s great to hear, it only stands to assess if they stay stable in liquid! I have noticed on day 2 of concentrate in the fridge the sodium crystals are really well dissolved!
@Brenda, my Mg bottles say “discard within 24 hours of opening.” Do you disregard that? Do you only use this when fasting to use it up quickly?
I must have some mighty powerful Magnesium Citrate here! To get only 75g, I could only use 1/8 tsp. Mine has 1.745 g per ounce (2 tbsp). .5T would be over 1300mg. Could your bottle and mine really have that much difference in them? Or is there a typo somewhere? If yours has as much Mg as mine, I’ll use .5T, no worries. After all, you’ve been using it constantly for an awfully long time! Just wondering …
WHOOPS! Just read the whole thread and my questions are answered.
NOTE TO SELF: “Read ALL the posts, especially on old threads. Someone else probably already made your boo-boo.”
FWIW, when I make ketoaide, I just pour some into a bottle without measuring and it’s definitely more than a Tbsp. For the potassium and salt, I just kind of dump some in there too. I’ve never had a disaster pants situation but YMMV!
I think we’ve all been guilty of that
I don’t worry. I keep opened bottles in the fridge.
Ive kept the same bottle one extended fast to the next. It still relaxes me and so I believe the magnesium is adequately bioavailable.
I just saw the 24-hr warning too and freaked out! Will try the fridge for my next bottle. I have only used the grape flavor, how is the lemon-lime? Is it sour or just a mild citrus taste?
Is liquid magnesium better than taking pills? I’ve wondered for a while if magnesium pills are ineffective for absorbing it.
I tried this, but I can’t seem to drink salty water no matter what I do. Strange how broth or sugary+salty drinks work, but this doesn’t for me.
Went CVS , almost bought them ingredient for this ketoaid.
My issse or concern I guess
Just seeing the work laxatives freaks me out😳
I already went through IBS about 2 years ago. Horrible pre Keto Times.
So w the laxative issue, are all you experiencing the effect?
Just a to each their own?
Gradually just start of small dosages?
