This stuff works GREAT!! :sunglasses:

What “brand” of pharmacy was this? Chain or indie? This would be MUCH easier for me to carry on the truck than the glass bottles (although they ARE cheap). But convenience has a price!


(Mike W.) #129

It’s Keystone Pharmacy. I think it’s independent.


(Candy Lind) #130

Thanks for your reply. I’ll check out my local indie pharmacy and hit Amazon if they don’t have it.

first attempt! i don’t like gatorade or electrolyte water (overbearing taste). this was mildly salty & hopefully will be even better after being in fridge.
40oz water
1/2 t pink salt
1T magnesium citrate

i’ll keep ya posted on any results, which i should notice to a greater degree bc i’m fasting.
thanks for the post & explanation in the thread!

gonnna start taking this for first time. i get incredibly painful leg cramps (beyond charley horse) that no amount of stretching relieves when they strike. #hopeful
plus my mum has been telling me to take calcium “now that you’re older” what in the world?! older?! LOL


#133

Um, Calcium supplementation doesn’t acutally strengthen bones, seems it’s more about weight bearing excercise and protein (which is a major component of bone).
If you do supplement, or have a lot in your diet, make sure you get enough Vitamin K (especially K2-4) so it ends up in the bone and not the arteries.


(Candy Lind) #134

Weight-bearing exercise will keep your bones strong; calcium won’t. Stop taking that calcium supplement.


(deana leone) #135

@Stef & @CandyLindTX I’m not really taking it in regards to my bones but rather leg cramps, and as on oft-neglected mineral in general, more in line with what @Brenda stated earlier. I was just making a joke about what my mum said. :wink:I’m aware of the value of weight bearing exercise for bone strength & do some of that when I’m on my gym game, but I’m not currently doing any on a regular basis. I don’t have a lot of calcium in my diet and I’m only taking half the dosage on the bottle. Thanks for lookin’ out for me, ladies!


(Fasting Educator) #136

THIS.
I’m not taking it for bones at all.

I have always put mine in the fridge, because of that warning. I didn’t like the grape, the citrus flavor is just refreshing. I also have cherry available if I want variety. I’ve had citrus flavor from Target and Kroger stores, I think they are made in the same facilities, taste is the same.

I don’t always make up ketoaide, I just take a couple of swigs from the bottleI need more mag. My husband wouldn’t leave the bathroom if he consumed an equal amount of mag. LOL


(Dameon Welch-Abernathy) #138

I just joined the ketoade train, making mine from Fred Meyer/Kroger Potassium Citrate
How soon have people started noticing a difference once consuming it?
I swear I felt better after one serving of it, but I’m also thinking that may be placebo effect :slight_smile:


(Fasting Educator) #139

I don’t doubt that one bottle made you feel better. If I don’t drink a bottle of it during my hour and a half at the gym I feel depleted.


(Dameon Welch-Abernathy) #140

I dunno, I seem to be craving it now…along with my broth. Just taking it slow due to the side effects of too much magnesium citrate.


(Kelly Denton) #141

I am SOOOO grateful for this forum! I am about 1 month into my keto journey and this past week I’ve been feeling sluggish, foggy brained and heavy lidded. All signs of dehydration yet I religiously drink lots of water throughout the day. Came on here to do some searching and the KetoAde to the rescue along with all the replies about magnesium supplementation. Today I added this in and I’m feeling 1000X better! Like @phoneboy mentioned, maybe it’s placebo effect or maybe it’s instant, but I’m whatever it is, I dig it! Keto on everyone!

MEGA NSV: One of my nine-year-olds just asked me to make ketoaide for the house!!
How I’ve been making theirs: one gallon of Kool aid made with stevia, 1/2 tbs magnesium sulfate ( all I have in the house.) They’ve been eating this WOE with us( loosely, though) so I began making this for them. I’ve noticed dark circles around the eyes which I attribute to lack of vitamins, and I’m hoping an extra multi vitamin will help.


(Nicole Sawchuk) #143

I’m finally taking your advice to add this despite my hesitation to supplement with Calcium (I think I read some where on Dr Fung’s blog not to). But after a year of experimenting with salt, I am not getting relief.

Where can you buy this in Canada that’s not amazon?


(Fasting Educator) #144

No clue. I am in Minnesota, USA.


(TJ Borden) #145

That’s basically Canada, at least the same accent :smile:


(Matt) #146

Hello everyone!! Newbie here with a math question (FYI I am absolutely terrible at math!!) I am thinking of making this by the gallon to store in my fridge. Would anyone be able to supply the amounts needed to make this? I have the ingredients and would appreciate the help.
