as far as I know, minerals are not necessary for the water to be drinkable; I’ve heard that the minerals do affect taste, however. if you do want trace minerals, this might be of interest:

For campsite music I can't recommend this thing enough. The most powerful portable speaker I could find and runs on 8-D batteries. Was $350 last year, down to $230 now:

Coleman EZ-UP, I realize this one's is on the more expensive side but in my experience Coleman products are really great at being truly waterproof, no need for extra tarps and this one has LED lighting built in so no need for lanterns, etc:

Sanuk shoes with yoga mat lining. Especially crucial on days 3 and 4:

Portable Battery for cell phone charging with tons of juice for several phone fill ups:

Hangover assist/vitamins/electrolytes/hydration:

That's all I can think of for now, it really is great being fully prepared for this event :)

u/IAmIAmNotIAmAmI · 10 pointsr/vegan

Hi. I responded to you briefly in your post in r/plantbaseddiet, but I wanted to put more info here since there are probably more people coming here for this sort of thing.

You need to see an allergist. It sounds to me like you’ve got oral allergy syndrome, which is basically where you’re allergic to the pollens of foods that are in the same family or otherwise structurally similar. It’s not at all uncommon, but you need to see an allergist because you need to make sure there’s no underlying cause. Also, because OAS can be a bit, erm, unpredictable in that you don’t always realize that you’re eating something that will trigger your allergies, you will probably want to have an Epi-Pen and/or emergency inhaler in the event you have a severe reaction. If your allergist deems it a good idea, keep them on or near you at all times, and remember to get replacements whenever they expire. I’ve gone years without having to use my Epi-Pen but I still have several within easy reach regardless of where I am. I also have made sure that all the people I’m around regularly know where they are and how to use them.

Get evaluated for celiac and related disorders. This would be done by a gastroenterologist, which you will likely need a referral from your PCP to see. Given your inability to keep weight on, I would wager that you have some sort of malabsorption issue — the most commonly occurring one being celiacs. has a symptom list that might be helpful. Another one that has more info.

Have your vitamin/mineral levels checked, in particular Vitamin D. Low levels of Vit D can indirectly cause malabsorption problems. There are a handful of other vitamins/minerals that can cause the same thing, but they are almost always related to low D levels. Fix the levels, and you’ll begin to feel better, although you’ll never be able to undo the damage that’s already been done if this is what the issue is.

Try a stomach acid supplement and/or digestive enzymes. Low stomach acid is a relatively unknown problem that can cause malabsorption issues, amongst other things. I use this one because it’s cheap and I’ve yet to find one that works as well. Edit: This one is not vegan, but as I said, I’ve yet to find something that actually works and is vegan. If anyone has a suggestion, let me know. Keep in mind that every person is different, so what works for me might not work for you. For example, I have a friend with the same disorder as me, but these give her an upset stomach and the ones that she takes (don’t recall the brand) don’t do anything for me. If you don’t want to buy anything like this, you can test if this is your issue by taking apple cider vinegar. The usual starting point is a tablespoon taken about 20 minutes after you eat. For me, I found that I needed more and taking it before I eat was often more helpful.

As someone else mentioned, try pre- and probiotics. This is a brand that’s frequently recommended in the zebra, although I’ve known a couple people who felt they’re too strong. Edit: This one is vegan. This is something else that’s been recommended with good success. Two tablespoons daily, usually in the morning, although it’s more than fine to take more. I know at least one person who drinks it rather than water and swears by it. I also give it to my dog with stomach issues, and he drinks it exclusively even though water is also available. An electrolyte replacement would be a good idea as well. LyteShow (Amazon link) is the brand I prefer, but there are several other brands available. Stay away from things like Gatorade/Powerade and other “sports drinks”. While they’re good in theory, most of them are no better than soda.

Do some reading about gastroparesis, mast cell activation syndrome, dysautonomia, and autism in adults. They’re all related, and chances are high that you’ll at least find some insight into how to manage your symptoms even if you don’t find all the answers.

You are not alone, and your symptoms are not unusual. It’s not “all in your head”, nor is it a result of “being picky”. Unfortunately, it is up to you to advocate for yourself and find a medical team that won’t brush you off. In the meantime, I would strongly caution you about changing your diet suddenly. I understand wanting to change it, to be better as quickly as possible, but you can shock your system when there’s underlying issues. Take it slow, find things that work for you, and go from there.

Excessive editing because I’ve apparently forgotten how to Reddit...

u/thatsmissfattyfatfat · 8 pointsr/xxketo

LyteShow forever. It is wonderfully salty and sour and recommended by marathoners and hangover-sufferers alike, and I have had zero "keto flu" while guzzling it diluted in trenta-size green teas and waters. Get the three pack if you like it:

A guy over at r/fasting is on something like 100 days and he's only had vitamins and this stuff:

Full disclosure: I know nothing about fasting other than what I've read on here. I am trying 16:8 for the first time today, though :) and this is my first post in here!

u/desertfractal · 6 pointsr/proED

Someone posted this a while ago and it’s amazing! Keeps me so hydrated and 0 cal

u/PostmatesMalone · 6 pointsr/Water_Fasting

Your body needs electrolytes for a number of things. I noticed muscle cramps and twitches when I did my first 48 hour fast without electrolytes. I add 3ml of LyteShow to every other 40oz bottle of water I drink when I do fasts and haven’t had issues with cramps or fatigue when fasting anymore. Any calorie free electrolyte supplement should work fine, just make sure you’re getting sodium, potassium, zinc, and magnesium.

LyteShow: Ionic Electrolyte Concentrate for Rapid Rehydration (40 Servings)

u/colourfulcomposure · 6 pointsr/keto

I use LyteShow and it seems to work fine. I also make my own bone broth and drink a cup daily...I've only used chicken carcasses, but I definitely plan to take a stab a beef bone broth here soon.

I'm a newbie, started keto just over 30 days ago so I may not know what the hell I'm talking about lol, but I haven't experienced any keto flu type symptoms and have adapted really quickly to this diet. I watched a bunch of videos and did a ton of reading before starting. This is a super easy to watch video that's packed with great information, including stuff about electrolyte loss/dehydration.

u/ducked · 5 pointsr/cfs

I buy these nuun tablets which are for rehydration. It's just electrolytes and it's sweetened with stevia and like 1 gram of sugar. It's a little on the expensive side but they're easy, have good ingredients and honestly taste really good. Just make sure you get the new formula, cause the old formula which they still sell has artificial ingredients. You should also put concentrace (trace minerals) in all your water. One bottle of that will last a very long time.

Also there's medication you can take to increase blood volume if you need to do that. Of course you have to do that with a doctor.

u/ecstgcfb · 5 pointsr/ketogains

I’m a big fan of trace minerals for keeping any keto flu at bay.

Edit: autocorrect

u/[deleted] · 5 pointsr/Supplements

Second that. Also, maybe try some fulvic/humic minerals with that. I've found to always get an energy boost with that. Would also recommend Lion's Mane mushrooms(from fruiting bodies). Lion's Mane works best with 100 mg niacin.

u/Physical_Moron · 5 pointsr/keto

So, there's always some sort of natural carbs in veggies. I eat only cruciferous vegetables, like broccoli, brussel sprouts, and cauliflower. I'll eat a few pieces of carrots, and celery, onions, and bell peppers, but avoid corn, for instance.

I eat no refined sugar, no carbs (flour, potatoes, corn starch, or sugar derivatives like malodextrine, dextrose etc.), and no starchy legumes, or veggies.

I cook with healthy fats, like coconut oil, and butter. I eat lots of protein, and healthy fats, with green veggies.

I bought (for the first time in my life, electrolytes. I bought liquid drops, from Amazon, called Lyteshow because I was getting cramps, and won't eat bananas anymore. I also bought MCT Oil, because I think that medium chain triglycerides are important.

Other than that, I just try to eat as clean as possible, and have fun making keto recipes. I also bought one of those fancy Multi-pot electric pressure cookers, because I'm eating a lot more real meats, and it requires very little prep, and I don't think about food all day. I only eat one meal a day, and try my best not to load up on fat. I've got plenty of fat on my body.

u/anagraphy · 5 pointsr/ketodrunk

found this out by accident, as i bought this stuff because my leg cramps get so bad sometimes and often nothing works: lyteshow

tl;dr: drank way too much wine on keto, put this stuff in my water bottle and drank it before bed/through the night, woke up fine

u/ShadedSpaces · 5 pointsr/fasting

LyteShow is just a pure liquid electrolyte supplement. Sodium, potassium, magnesium, chloride, zinc, and sulfate. No flavors or sweeteners or anything.

The longest I've fasted is 14 days.

A 3-day fast every week would definitely work for weight loss, provided you don't eat back the entire deficit on eating days. I think ADF is an awesome place to start btw!

u/TheRamma · 5 pointsr/MTB

Get some electrolyte solution to add to your water. I use this...

No flavoring. Makes a huge different in the desert, used to get crazy muscle cramps and other issues before using it.

u/bytivore · 5 pointsr/fasting

Try adding salt to your water. I personally use

u/Sweet-Hereafter · 4 pointsr/xxketo

I haven’t needed meds in a long time, like years. I saw a bunch of neurologists and tried a bunch of meds, a lot of them gave me rebound headaches. But almost all pharmaceuticals are bound with fluoride, which bonds to magnesium in your body and increases your deficiency. In the end I was told, “oh it’s just hormonal, take pain relief meds and stay in the dark if you can.”

They did their best, but no one understood the real reason for the headaches, hence they had no ability to fix the actual problem, which was nutritional.

I buy mag chloride and electrolytes on Amazon usually. They seem to have the best prices. As long as I keep my insulin stable and take my electrolytes, I have no headaches at all, and if I feel one coming on during PMS or during high stress, I just take extra, nbd. Mag chloride completely stops my migraines in about 20 minutes, like a miracle.

I’ll link a couple things on Amazon, although there are lots of electrolyte supps to choose from, something else may be better suited to you. Good luck on your journey, I am happy to answer questions!

Also drinking water that has minerals can help as well, such as SmartWater.

u/BondservantOfChrist · 4 pointsr/Christianity

/r/nofap has some sound science if you aren't persuaded by sound doctrine. Setting up software on your computer, router or for your browser can help, along with getting an accountability partner or making yourself accountable to those you live with by placing the computer in a more public part of your home. You can also order supplements that have been shown to have a statistically significant anaphrodisiac or libido lowering effect, such as this or this. Making a play list of doctrinally sound praise music can also help keep your mind from wandering. Regardless of what you do to help resist temptation, you must also flee from it. Lastly, rebuking the temptation verbally when done in faith can have a mighty result.

With that being said, the greatest and most consistent victory I've ever had over this type of temptation was by focusing squarely on Jesus Christ. Consider that in Matthew 14 where we read about Peter walking out on the waves to meet our Saviour, it was when he looked right or left and was reminded of the waves that he began to sink. It's not unlike driving a car. Do we look at where we don't want to go in order to get where we're going? The hands follow the eyes and so it is with the lust of the eyes and the sin you're struggling with. Seek ye first the Kingdom of God and His righteousness.

89/72 here, I don't know really when to stop. 5lbs lost.

Heartburn has stop. But I'm still dealing with kind of a diarrhea. Super liquid yellow/brown stuff. I'm afraid I'm having imbalanced electrolytes one way or another.... I don't know. I've read here and there that it's normal, but I would feel more comfortable if this was over...

I'm usually taking 4-8 teaspoon of this stuff a day (depends of exercises during the day). Is it too much ?

edit : I'm realising it is low on sodium, so maybe I should have some pink salt.

u/thebilbobobbins · 3 pointsr/StackAdvice

600mg of Lithium Orotate is on the low-end pharmaceutically, but not Nootropically.

There are all sorts of claims and studies, many of which still need to be corroborated, indicating that Lithium modulates Dopaminergic and Gabaergic transmission, it can reduce available Norepinephrine, it can enhance Serotonin function, it's neuroprotective, the list is endless.

So there is a benefit to just taking a "regular" dose of Lithium. Tons of people report feeling calmer and more focused from regular doses of 10mg to 120mg of Lithium Orotate. Magnesium works fairly similarly to Lithium, and you could try combining the two, but Lithium is more potent by volume.

However, I'm suggesting that you try it for mood regulation rather than Nootropic value.

I'm essentially suggesting that you take a pharmaceutical-dose of Lithium (not quite, but you know what I mean), using a Nootropic-brand of Lithium. You need to be careful, because Lithium Orotate isn't as well studied as Lithium Carbonate (though, many claim Lithium Orotate is safer). It may take longer to clear, meaning that it could buildup in your body and slowly raise your blood-Lithium level over time. It may be more bioavailable than Lithium Carbonate, meaning that my comparison of the equivalent dosages is off. Based on the studies and anecdotal reports I read, my comparison of dosages seems more or less "accurate", so the buildup is probably the bigger concern. For example, maybe you should only be taking 600mg every 2 days, because it has twice the half-life of Lithium Carbonate. I can't find enough information on it to tell you one way or the other.

Plus, you're claiming that you aren't experiencing hypomania, which means your therapeutic dose would be much lower than someone with mood-cycling.

It's not something that is particularly risky. Like I said, the therapeutic dose for mood regulation is 0.6 mmol/L, and I'm only suggesting you aim for 0.1 mmol/L. It is highly unlikely that you're going to experience Lithium toxicity, even if it does have a longer half-life and/or higher bioavailability. I'm just trying to give you all of the available information, because I'm not a doctor, and you need to be your own advocate here. If you experience acute Lithium toxicity, you'll know pretty quickly. You'll feel sick, dizzy, confused, weak, etc. And if that happens, you just lower the dose or stop taking it.

What I would recommend is, you give 600mg Lithium Orotate a try for 3 months or so. At the end of that 3 months, I'd recommend visiting your doctor and asking her to check your Lithium levels. She'll probably ask "why?", and you'll just tell her "you've been trying an over-the-counter Lithium supplement, and you want to make sure you aren't overdoing it". She might give you some speech about "self-medicating", but whatever, Lithium is literally just an alkali metal on the periodic table of elements (this entire subreddit is about self-medicating). Then, if you're liking the way it makes you feel (or, more importantly, if it's helping) you should ask your general practitioner or Psychiatrist to put you on the real stuff, so you can see what feels like in the 0.4 to 0.6 mmol/L range. Or, if you're not worried about it, just adjust your dosage yourself using the Lithium Orotate (but it's going to get expensive doing it over-the-counter).

I use to take Lithium for some of the same reasons I'm recommending it to you. I was too goofy, I'd talk too much, I'd talk too loud, I'd say whatever popped into my head. I'd encounter a debate in a discussion, and even though I felt like I was being inquisitive or curious, other people felt like I was "trying to argue with them" or "invalidating their opinion". I came off as abrasive, when I was just trying to talk, have fun, make new friends, etc. I got my blood-Lithium level up to 0.7 mmol/L, and my life improved dramatically. I didn't lose my personality or urge to talk (which can happen if your dose is too high), but instead, I became capable of having "more normal", toned-down discussions. More women started showing interest in me, and more men and women wanted to be my friend. Shit was a fucking miracle.

Anyways, sorry for writing so much. I write for a living, and it's easy for me to pound this stuff out in a couple of minutes. I would recommend this brand:

u/Kootlefoosh · 3 pointsr/StackAdvice

lithium pretty much saves me from having these weird anxious and dreadful feelings. 5 mg lithium via lithium orotate (equivalent of 120 mg of lithium orotate salt, or one of these tablets) has pretty fantastic safety data, and really can't hurt you at all unless you already have a kidney issue (people get this much lithium a day from drinking groundwater in certain cities). I personally take 20mg a day (four of those tablets) but increased dosages comes with increased risks -- which can be mitigated if you have the money for blood lithium testing (you want less than 1.2 mEq/dl)

u/RobotPigOverlord · 3 pointsr/veganketo

I use these

u/CharlyDayy · 3 pointsr/zerocarb

I personally really enjoy this brand for my electrolytes. I'm mainly deficient not b/c of diet, but b/c of drinking nothing but distilled water ( i refuse to drink city tap water, although it does have trace minerals)

You see in our primordial lives, we drank water from streams and aquifers which are salinated and have the minerals our body needs.

We just dont get that with city water anymore.

Amazon in the U.S. sells both lithium citrate and lithium chloride which I believe is the natural form found in some sources of water.

Edit: Another option for lithium citrate. None of it is cheap, though.

u/Msgadgeteer · 3 pointsr/1200isplentyketo

I love this sub and it feels, to me, like a quiet little cul de sac in big ol' Keto Town.

Here's my sharing:

this week Lyteshow solved my electrolyte struggle. I feel SO GOOD!

Have been paying as much attention to sides as to the protein and my meals have been tasty, tasty

I'm trying out a month of MFP Premium and so far love seeing the macro breakdown (per meal) on my diary page in either grams or percentages.

Lastly, I now automatically pack at least a baggy full of food so I'm not stuck without choices. If I have the time I pack a whole cold meal.

Can you guys share with me what sort of tote you put your food in? They are easy to find online but I know some are better insulated than others.

u/slowbitch · 3 pointsr/Homeplate

u/julietscause · 3 pointsr/bjj

Keto peep here

I dont really do anything pre mainly because I dont want to throw up all over my partners so I cant help with that.

Post workout ill go home and pour some of this with a whole squeezed lemon (sometimes ill throw in some Pink Himalaya salt too if it was a rough day)

The most important thing about this diet is making sure you get your electrolytes in or you are going to hate your life.

I also take a scoop of this

It is pricey but I like the taste and there are some other low carb options out there.

Sometimes ill have some eggs or a chicken thigh to get the protein/fats. Epic bars are my friends, I stay away from the Quest bars because they seem to make me stall.

You might want to check out r/ketogains as they are geared towards those who workout while doing keto.

u/Krunchy1736 · 3 pointsr/fasting

Gatorade is fine in a pinch and I'll drink it after a workout when I break my fast, but has too much sugar which will spike insulin which will shut down the "Fast Mode". There are lots of electrolyte additives you can get to add to your water that have all the electrolytes not just the potassium, chloride, and sodium in Gatorade. It also has artificial coloring which has a debatable effect on the body.

Here is one example.

u/FirstZeroCarber · 3 pointsr/zerocarb

I did actually, still feeling like death but pushing through. I’ve been using those ketone pee strips and it finally showed between low and moderate amount of ketones so that’s good i think!

Also picked up this stuff called “Lyteshow” so going to be drinking water with some of that in it today to see if it helps. Here is the link, hopefully it’s zerocarb approved.

Also I seem to have no appetite, I love steak and smoked a nice thick ribeye on the traeger this morning for breakfast and could barely eat half of it. Hopefully I get my appetite back soon

u/stellamarisetal · 3 pointsr/disability

This overlaps with a previous comment a bit, and may be way too detailed, but just in case...

When I had this same issue for a long time after a surgery I tried a bunch of things that didn't work, so I decided to focus on getting more out of the liquids I was able to drink. I had good results from products designed for rehydration after sports, illness, or hangovers. But only the healthy ones with no sugar or artificial colors/flavors/sweeteners. Things like Gatorade make it worse with all their sugar (which the body must use more fluid to process fully) and artificial ingredients. Tried Pedialyte too, but same sugar issues, tastes icky, and is too pricey.

The very best were Nuun tablets, which you drop into water. They have lots of different flavors, and have a hint of effervescence at first, so without trying I found I easily drank more overall. Some of the flavors, like grape, fruit punch, or watermelon, I adore because they remind me of yummy childhood drinks that were terribly unhealthy. But the Nuun tablets have natural fruit flavors, and are sweetened with monk fruit, so just healthy stuff. They have lots of electrolytes, and some vitamins/minerals that help your body retain more fluid. I buy them by the box on Amazon, and they have sampler boxes that let you try several flavors first. Many healthier markets carry them too, at a higher cost, so you can try them first Wish they were cheaper in general, but nope. :-(

This is the nuun site for more info: And here is an example of a combo pack on Amazon (but if you search for Nuun, you will see all sorts of packs and prices): Just avoid the nuun tablets with black packaging, as they have caffeine in them.

If you go on Amazon and search for "hydration," the first batch of things that comes up will give you some really good options.

I also tried this concentrated rapid rehydrating liquid called LyteShow Electrolyte Concentrate that you can add to cold drinks, which worked well, but the Nuun tablets were much more practical (lightweight instead of heavy bottles of liquid, and more tasty, and cheaper).

I also switched to pink salt then, as it has tons of trace minerals (needed by the body to fully utilize your fluids), and that helped, surprisingly. Also just tastes much better! On bad days where I was almost fainting, I would take a mouthful of water and toss back a big pinch of that salt. It reduced the dizziness. But after that I began using the nuun tablets, which helped all around.

I ate as many juicy foods as I could then, like citrus, cucumbers, melon, lettuce, apples and pears. But I could barely eat at the time, so it wasn't enough by itself.

Switch to a really high quality multivitamin too, especially if your hair is falling out (mine did too). Avoid gummy vitamins, cheap stuff from the drug store, and brands known to source unregulated ingredients from China (like the NOW brand).

I hated the smell of my tap water which didn't help with drinking (and my city had good water), so I learned to fill a couple pitchers and leave them sitting out, uncovered, for 24 hours, which allowed all of the chlorine to evaporate.uch better then.

Oh, kind of random, but I also started keeping the mini cans of V8 tomato juice on hand (regular kind, not the low sodium). Normally I don't like it much. But when I was so dehydrated, it tasted sooooo good for some reason. Probably I just needed the salt to help me better retain fluids, but the extra dose of veggies probably helped too.

I think that's all my hard-won hydration tactics, but it all worked. Hopefully something in there helps you, so you can start feeling better. If I think of anything else, I will wander back. Good luck, my dehydrated friend. 🙂

u/mixtheskittles · 3 pointsr/POTS

Mine was very sudden as well. Ended up being able to pinpoint it to a virus (hand, foot, and mouth) that caused pericarditis (inflammation of the lining of my heart). I didn't feel sick at all, but started having chest pains, increased heart rate, and passing out. First 3 ER visits all said I was having panic attacks.

From being in a similar situation, I know that the change can be rough. I went from working out 1-2 times a day, playing all day volleyball tournaments, and running half marathons - a year later now sometimes I am too tired to get off the couch, throwing up and passing out after 3 miles, and experience incredible soreness. Sometimes there are good days, some days are not so great.

Btw - found this to be great for hydrating

u/AutoDestructo · 3 pointsr/dragoncon

PRO TIP: Water only goes so far. If you're drinking / sweating all day in Georgia you're going to lose your salts. You can replace water with gatorade during the day, or pedialyte in the morning if you've done something foolhardy the night before. Lastly, for the true degenerate these is lyteshow. It's basically 'roll your own' gatorade concentrate without the sugar.

u/aHipShrimp · 3 pointsr/keto

You can get LyteShow on Amazon, which is a zero calorie electrolyte replacement liquid you drip into your water. Also a great hangover cure if you drink. This stuff if amazing.

u/TossYouOnYourHaircut · 3 pointsr/BPD

Overwhelming, incessant, self-sabotaging self-talk & negative (nearly always unhealthy & unreasonable) rumination?!? Oh, believe me, I get it!

Thanks for sharing this. This is some next lvl stuff, illustrating, in a grand way just how destructive this shit can be.

After a serious head injury in Afghanistan & years & years of tests, scans, etc, and of therapy & medication (and self-medication) by way of much trial and error, in my research, I happened upon OTC Lithium Orotate. I know how it looks & what it seems like when ppl mention drugs or supplements, and recommend them to others. And I know how it is to be in such a position of anguish & terror (yes, terror’s a good word for it) for so long, yearning for something to give way, and a return to normalcy. Anyhow — of all the meds/supplements I’ve take thus far, this form of Lithium (NOT prescription Lithium Carbonate — that stuff was terrible for me), has really done me well. If you read the OP’s post and thought, “oh damn, yes! That’s me, to a T!” Well, I suggest in the very least, give Lithium Orotate a go. And if that ain’t your bag — probably a good idea, to head in & speak with a professional and INTUITIVE psychiatrist & relay the content of OP’s post to them, if you have a hard time articulating your struggles. Will give them a VERY good idea what boat you’re in.

Love & Peace & Betterment to all!

Thanks OP, in a BIG way!

P.S. Although I think he’s an odd character, check out what Dr. John Gray has to say about this supplement. Hard not to think someone’s pushing an agenda that has less to do with your health, than with lining their pockets, when one talks a product up so much, which they themselves are selling. Makes me a bit uneasy, for sure. But, I don’t settle with just once source of info. Havva look inta this stuff. Mite save ur sanity! Gray also sells his own stuff on amazon (which I’m currently taking), but Weyland also makes some great stuff & is def cheaper.

u/shall_2 · 3 pointsr/BrandNewSentence

Look into electrolyte supplements.
Here's one on Amazon. Your local health food store will have them too. Put like half a teaspoon in 20oz of water and you get waay more electrolytes for your buck and no sugar. It's flavorless too but if you want flavor you could of course just put it in a sports drink too.

u/FreyjaSunshine · 3 pointsr/fasting

Electrolytes! It makes a huge difference.

We all do it a little differently, but here is what works for me: HiLyte drops 1-2 times/day, daily calcium (Tums), Magnesium and a multivitamin.

When I feel hungry/snacky/otherwise dissatisfied, I think it's my body telling me that I need more salt, so I snack on whatever salt I can find. You should not feel that bad on a 72 hr fast.

I like to break fasts with fruit, avocado, or other salad type foods. One of my faves is bleu cheese dressing over shredded cabbage. If I fast less than 4-5 days, I just eat whatever and it's fine. Longer fasts require a more gentle approach, and nearby bathroom access for the first 12 hrs or so.

Besides the drinks and powders, another method I’ve used is tablets. When I’m backpacking or on long bike rides in the Redding summer heat it’s easier to deal with tablets than fiddling with powder or having to carry special electrolyte drinks. This is what I use

u/jewellya78645 · 2 pointsr/keto

i use Trace Minerals Electrolyte Stamina Tablets. you can find it here on amazon and they also sell it at GNC. I take two tabs 30 minutes to two hours before i workout and hydrate throughout. The electrolytes composition helps with energy in much the same way that we believe carbs would do. Burning fat for energy requires a lot more assistance, i suppose. alot of folk on here talk about "ketoade" and various mix-in supplements. I prefer the ease of the pills.

u/grimfink · 2 pointsr/ehlersdanlos

My current lineup:
Morning dose of Vitamins C & D, MSM, BCAAs (branched chain amino acids, I think?), L-Lysine, L-Serine, and electrolyte drops - also 24hr zyrtec (I get hives pretty easy); recently started CoQ10 as my heart is doing flippy things on a regular basis. (I have everything but the CoQ10 & Zyrtec in powder form, so I do it all in one glass in the morning with an Emergen-C packet - though it's pretty easy to DIY if you get Vit C powder and mix it with raspberry/lemon/whatever fruity powders are out there, I don't remember the ratio off the top of my head, but there are a number of sites with the info and powder suggestions; I'll be doing that after I kill this box. This may affect the absorption of some of it, but I eat a healthy diet and pretty much take this stuff for extra bonus doses, not like my body depends on every gram. I've also been too lazy to do the research on what should be taken when/with what other stuff, like the fish oil mentioned by someone else)

CBD for pain relief (lotion/oils, recently tried a local infused honey, but the first topical applications are definitely awesome for more immediate relief due to the arnica and mints as well; haven't noticed if the honey is super beneficial or not, but it tastes awesome). If you're against the CBD stuff, there's stuff out there with just the arnica/mints in it - give that a shot. It's no miracle, but it'll take the edge off most days.

At night I just do another dose of electrolytes (I split the daily dose in half, more or less. Sometimes I'll do a few more drops in the middle of the day if I'm doing something a bit more intensive than my usual day).

Depending on your mouth pain (sores/bumps/tissue damage/inflammation?) the Lysine might be a good bet - it's an amino acid that's pretty key in repairing/maintaining mouth tissue - and your body doesn't make it.
MSM isn't a miracle for pain relief for me, but I do feel looser when I skip my doses for sure. (Man, what's wrong with me these last few days? Oh. I forgot my MSM.)
Apparently Vit C is pretty crucial for bone/collagen formation.

Absolutely none of this is done with a doctor's orders or knowledge (yay not being insured for 6 years, still waiting on finding my new PCP now that I am) so consult yours if you've got one and all.

Also, massage therapy has helped me tons. If you can combo that with a chiropractor, I highly recommend giving them a shot - I'll file that under "supplements" :D
On that note, I also had pretty bad gum problems until I got a Sonicare and started flossing regularly/using a GUM thingy (which is pretty uncomfortable some days, but I still try to) - not suggesting you don't or anything, just my experience. Plus the Sonicare took a lot of the effort from my hands/wrists/shoulders from conventional tooth brushing, resulting in less pain.

I'm also gluten, soy, dairy and egg-free as far as diet goes - tested positive for allergies to the proteins/sugars and I try to stay pretty strict with it. Tummy trouble on top of joint trouble is no fun, plus I've read that gluten and dairy can be rather inflammatory.

Sorry you're having a rough day. Many hugs, if you'd like them <3

Edited to say, DEFINITELY Epsom Salt baths if you can do the bath thing. If not, you can salt a wet hand towel, roll it up and use it like a compress on whatever body part you'd like to target.

Interesting. My question on fatty foods might revolve more around putting coconut oil in coffee or even grass fed butter (if you're the adventurous type haha).

Is the gatorade for electrolytes? You could always put trace mineral salts in your water if you don't like consuming that much sugar.

Regardless, it sounds like you have an awful go of things and I wish you the best.

u/theFlipside619 · 2 pointsr/AskWomen

I put trace minerals in my water and coffee.

When I workout and forget to drink this stuff is when I get sore. Been using this stuff for three years now. It's my supplement when I don't eat enough whole foods that month or are traveling. I don't tend to need supplements anymore.

Other than the trace stuff, I'll supplement with a multi when I know I've been really eating the junk food. Usually during holidays or again traveling. :)

u/KipsterED · 2 pointsr/preppers

I have the same container. Here's what I did. I washed mine out with dishsoap and rinsed THOROUGHLY. I filled mine with Reverse Osmosis (RO) water which I have under the kitchen sink. (Note: I live on well water, not public supplied). It took a few days to fill but that was fine. I also added a teaspoon of bleach to it to kill off any bacteria that may have made it's way through the RO system, or was still in the container. Yeah I added a teaspoon to 7 gallons of RO water when it is recommended to add a teaspoon to 5 gallons, but I figured this water should be pretty damn clean to start with. I also added the recommended amount of trace minerals into the RO water for taste and mineral purposes (RO filtering strips water of ~99% minerals that your body needs).


My intent was to have water than I could use to drink, or, for anything else (like flushing toilets, bathing,etc.). The point is it is versatile.


I also labeled the container with the date that I finished filling it (01/22/2019). After a year, I'm going to try the water out and see if it has gone bad or not. I'm not sure yet if I'll let it go another year or just use it up around the house and fill it up again like I did above.


Also I'm storing this on my basement floor. It's a constant 55 degrees F down there and out of direct sunlight. Also it is near a drain so if it leaked for some reason it wouldn't make a big mess.


I like this because I can always buy more of those jugs to fill and have a fair amount of water saved away.


The only downside to this is the jugs are heavy, I'm guessing 50 pounds. It will suck carrying it upstairs but if I really need it, it's there.

This definitely confirms my experimentation. I get salt from salt... no issue there and I get Mg from the trace mineral supplement drops
but I also supplement about 300 mg as magnesium citrate. I've never been big on K+, when I first got into keto I was probably taking way too much and felt like shit, felt way better once I backed off. I think a daily salad, avocado, and can of sardines is sufficient for K requirements among other micro nutrients.

u/kittengrey · 2 pointsr/xxketo

I used the following before and during my keto flu experience. I found nothing helped during shark week and I didn't lose. I weighed 2 days later and I went down 2 lbs. My suggestion is do not weigh in that time frame and keep your electrolytes up as best as possible. I do also take a potassium supplement. Make sure you take enough to warrant a full days dose: (1) (2)

Additionally, I did not have horrible cramps as it was my first 'weekly experience' while on KETO.

I've had many of the above mentioned feelings and the best thing I found for them was Lithium Orotate. Cheap, easy to get, and it worked from the first day I took it.

I am very weary of it as there are practically no formal studies (that I can find) so I no longer take it daily. But it definitely helps when bad feelings crop up. I always have some on hand.

The reviews here are in line with my experience.

u/ketoll · 2 pointsr/keto

Keto is now the final step I'm taking for treating my own depression and anxiety in a series of steps that I've taken that has really worked for me. Depression and anxiety really brought me to my lowest this last winter. I made the following changes in my life:

  1. Started seeing a therapist. Getting an outside perspective on your own thoughts is so important! We should never try to think ourselves out of depression. We need people to tell us we're not crazy and that it's ok and normal to have the thoughts we have. We need a place where we can take off the mask and then have someone that will give us honest feedback about our deepest thoughts.

  2. Got my fulltime schedule at my stressful job to be cut to part-time, and talked to my boss about moving toward a less-stressful role. Had to work through some self guilt on this because I've always had a strict outlook on work and being a hard worker, but now I realize that it's up to me to put my foot down when the stress is too much and prioritize my health.

  3. Started taking a few supplements. I take Lithium Orotate in the mornings when I go to work because it boosts my mood and makes me happier. I also take CBD oil to help with my anxiety, and it has greatly reduced it and helped to normalize my anxiety levels.

  4. Keto! The last bit that was hindering me was lack of motivation and sluggishness. Now that I'm on Keto, my energy levels and motivation for being active are much higher. I haven't felt depression ever since I started this diet. It's amazing!

Last day of my 4 day weekend. I definitely wasted yesterday. But I only have to work tues,wed, and fri then I'm off for 11 days. I hope I don't waste that too bad!

I want to ride over, but then I'd have to change my pants and boots when I get there lol the hassle

Yesterday my eating was weird because I procrastinated all day, so today I made sure to actually eat breakfast before beginning procrastination mode. I tried this horseradish cheese.....not a fan. I mean it's ok, but it's not jalapeno or cayenne, which I'm not supposed to eat (nightshade allergy/intolerance).

I tried Mio, the one with b vitamins and stevia. Bleh. Totally gross. I think I'll stick with plain electrolyte lemon water with no sweetener.

u/brainjacked · 2 pointsr/Nootropics

Are you spraying properly? Fluid shouldn't drip from your nose and you shouldn't feel/taste it in the back of your throat. Getting consistent results with the sprays is hard and requires patience to let it absorb in each nostril, spray by spray. I ended up doing 4 sprays, 2-3 times a day, lazily and having no idea how much semax I was actually getting. I've used both Semax and NA-Semax sprays.

I eventually switched to NA-Semax-A subq injections. It's not hard and semax alleviates any needle anxiety after the first time. I respond well to NA-Semax-A at 800mcg. If you have a 100mcg spray, you would need 8 sprays to hit that level (and some won't be absorbed).

45 min before I play sports in the early evening, I take 2 sprays of NA-Semax, 1ml of Lion's Mane extract, 6mg ionic boron, 300mg Optimal Choline Complex and .5ml of ceretropic's caffeine/nalt. This stack improves my speed, strength, coordination and endurance to such a degree that it feels like cheating.

Concentrace liquid trace mineral supplement. Put your dose in your water bottle once a day.

u/allaballa8 · 2 pointsr/Fitness

When I had the same problem, I started drinking Powerade. Gatorade is the same, just with calories. Then I went on and bought Nuun tablets. I liked them a lot, and they also come with no calories. The thing that worked best for me was Trace Minerals, since you can add as much as you want to your water. Careful not to add too much though - when I did, it would give me diarrhea, and it pretty much brought me back to square one. That won't have any effect on your budget - the money you used to spent on chips is now spent on electrolyte drinks, but you'll go less frequently to the bathroom. (electromix didn't do anything for me, and it also didn't dissolve very well in water.)

Another thing I noticed - coffee and alcohol dehydrate me. Coffee especially is pretty bad - with all the water I drank, I'd still get constipated. So I stopped drinking coffee, and when I go out, I don't drink too much, and I try to have at least a glass of water for every beer I drink. Try to see whether some foods make you crave more water.

Unfortunately, when you eventually stop drinking electrolytes and switch back to drinking only water, you'll be back to where you started. So what I did is drink less water. Little by little - I would drink maybe a few minutes later, or drink less water than usual. Small changes, so I don't get dizzy from dehydration (you cannot go from drinking 2 gallons a day to just one gallon in one day). I hope you try some of this. Good luck!

u/oxygen51 · 2 pointsr/floxies

I initially think of detoxification in Floxies nothing. But everyone has to know that for themselves. I would rather help him to do his own detoxification better by eg. Milk thistle for liver, goldenrod, stinging nettle and dandelion for lymph and kidneys. Later, if you are much more stable, you can start with further detoxification. But that's just my opinion from the experience here and everyone has to decide for themselves! Please take care with all products that they are without additives, fillers etc. These include magnesium stearate, titanium oxide, silicon dioxide, all E's, magnesium salts of fatty acids. Soy and maize are genetically engineered. The NEM listed below (supplements) do not start all at once, but start with a base. The e.g. is my own plan. The base consists of magnesium malate and / or glycinate, depending on the blood picture, dolomite powder for natural calcium for 4 weeks), trace minerals, milk thistle, selenium as SODIUM selenite and the good Darmbaktieren. Beware of mercury pollution due to amalgam fillings or mercury / heavy metal poisoning. Sodium selenite combines with mercury to form undeliverable complexes. If you want to play it safe, you can test heavy metals with the HP or environmental doctor. Selenium, however, still needs our thyroid glands. You can try to get as much food as you can. Coconuts and Brazil nuts contain relatively much selenium, but not enough to remedy a deficiency. B complex and B12 as adenosylcobalamin or methylolcobalamin (NOT with amalgam in the mouth) Taking time of the basic NEM: Selenium sober in the morning 2 hours. later magnesium according to the manufacturer's instructions, you get diarrhea or palpitations half the dose (in case of dizziness and sweating please check the kidneys and reduce the dose, signs of kidney problems) At noon Vit B complex and B12 and Acerola Magnesium in the afternoon In the evening Trace Minerals Before sleep
go milk thistle In one-week increments, more NEM will be added. Never vitamins and minerals together. For legal reasons, I point out that income of any kind is your responsibility. Advice here is based on experience and research by Kerri Knox and Joshua Tucker in the US, who have worked with 2 doctors for many years and treat floxies. 1 . Gut: This is the most important step before you should even start. Because an unhealthy intestine does not absorb well / nothing. Especially with Leaky Gut we can swallow as much as we want, it will not be absorbed. Prebiotics are very important for the good intestinal bacteria. Inulin are fiber that the good bacteria love as food and thus multiply better. Creep in at low dosage; Flatulence at the beginning is normal. Here a good source of supply: So that the intestine also good bacteria are fed, you can take effective microorganisms. In my opinion a true miracle cure, because one can do sooo much with it. Et al Cleaning, washing clothes, improving room air, rinsing, washing hair, animals and plants also benefit from this. Starting with 20 ml per day, you can go higher after 2 weeks to 2 x 20 ml. I order here: 201%% 20l 22% 20Flasche Or the omnibiotic products. But you have to know exactly which one is best and look over medicine fox, where they are currently the cheapest. Unfortunately, these maltodextrin contain what you should avoid. 2. Mineral deficiency My number one bioavailable and no diarrhea triggers are the Concen Trace Minerals from Great Salt Lake, Utah. Important electrolytes !! They are ionized and therefore optimal. Starting with 20 drops, increase every 3-4 days to 80 drops (1 tsp). Since they really taste very salty I always take apple juice, then you can stand it. Information: (not to order here, as much too expensive) Source: Dolomite powder (ONLY when calcium is low) Here we have calcium and magnesium in their natural form and in the best ratio. Divide the portion of dolomite into several and dissolve in a medium glass of water. Source: I would combine both, whereby the dolomite powder only for about 4 weeks, depending on what the blood counts on the calcium value. Please do not be put off by the doctor with "ok". Because even if the value is in the lower range they say it's "ok". But this is a daily footbath with 2 tablespoons of magnesium chloride. 45 minutes at least, water at most 38 degrees Magnesium citrate can trigger histamine shots. Therefore, I recommend magnesium glycinate because it is bound to the amino acid glycine, which we need anyway for glutathione. MAGNESIUM TYPES Magnesium chloride: detoxifying, stimulates the metabolism and kidney function, for foot and full baths, and oil preparation optimally, can also be drunk as an oily solution / brine (tastes perverse) Magnesium citrate: Not recommended after it interacts with ceruloplasmin and interferes with iron metabolism triggers histamine bursts, contained in all major products from pharmacies and drug stores Magnesium glycinate: relaxing, is well received, helpful in leaky gut and nerve pain Magnesium malate: energizing, helps with fibromyalgia and muscle aches Magnesium oxide: very effective if you take several small doses throughout the day Magnesium sulfate: should only be taken in small doses, works best as a bath additive Magnesium taurate and orotate: protects the heart and vessels Magnesium threonate: highly effective after traumatic brain injury, post-traumatic stress disorder, depression, nervous problems, anxiety and panic good magnesium: 3.

electrolytes help with this. some people recommend Gatorade or Pedialyte (Pedialyte is great but expensive). I went with a concentrated electrolyte solution. is the one I got if you're interested, but I'm sure there are more. I find it definitely helps me maintain hydration, not to mention it's awesome for preempting hangovers.

I don't think anyone's mentioned electrolytes yet. I encountered the same experience (tho your case might still be different of course) and the second I started drinking electrolytes in my water I was back to feeling like superwoman after workouts. If you eat "healthy" it's really easy to not get enough salt. And your body doesn't just want Sodium, there are other good salts for you. Like ones with Magnesium and Potassium. People with high blood pressure and who have been told by doctors to cut back on salt would probably not need electrolytes in addition to their regular diet.

If you do decide to give electrolytes a try, I recommend Lyteshow which can be found on Amazon It lasts a long time since it's so concentrated, and it comes with a little to-go bottle with measuring cap so you can give yourself a reasonable dose in your workout water bottle. Since it's already in a liquid solution, it mixes in easily with water, no real effort to shake/dissolve necessary.

Either make your own electrolyte drink (I will add a squeeze of lemon or lime, some zero carb sweetener if you wish, .5 teaspoon of Himalayan pink salt, magnesium supplement if you got it, into about 20-30 oz of water)


This stuff is great, doesn't make your water taste too different, depending on the amount and it goes a long way. I put it in my water throughout the day and especially, and more importantly, to my intra-workout water consumption.

When I first did keto 2 years ago, i never supplemented with electrolytes, just added salt to everything. I found that while I may not have cramped as much as you, I always felt "dried out". I could never drink enough water, my lips were always dry, felt cotton mouthy all the time. After adding electrolytes to my diet this time around, all of those symptoms are DRASTICALLY reduced.

u/alex_de_tampa · 2 pointsr/fasting

I like talking about it. First rule of fasting is you never tell anyone about it. Once you get used to fasting it’s not too difficult. 48hr-72hr fast I don’t notice anything but any longer electrolytes are mandatory. I recommend you start on the 16:8 because most of your fast you will be sleeping. I also sleep really good when I fast. It feel like my body eats fat while I sleep because I wake up energized. I also drink black coffee every morning. Also I have the most success fasting when I keep things peaceful and stress free in my life. I have 4 kids so most of my fasting shortfalls happen when they stress me out lol. dont tell anyone you are fasting

Rule 1: don’t talk about your fasting

Rule 2: hunger is fat crying as your body eats it lol

Rule 3: hunger comes in waves , usually around the times your normally eat. If you can hold out a few minutes the hunger subsides .

This are the electrolytes I use:

u/Jellodrome · 2 pointsr/xxketo

I woke from a doozy of a calf cramp when I was about your 'age' (7 days into keto), and I now squirt this in my drink twice a day. It has more potassium and magnesium than gatorade but no sugar. Don't take too much at once if you don't want to taste it, as it's quite salty. I also have a salty beefy bullion broth once a day if I can. It is a comfort food and retores my salt balance. I literally feel better after drinking it.

u/mpizgatti · 2 pointsr/fasting

When I was looking at all the pills and supplements, it was hard to find ones from a good brand but also to find one that met 100% daily value of the electrolytes. I did find a daily multivitamin in CVS that I liked enough, good percentages of most things except electrolytes. That's the only reason I ordered the squirt thing was to supplement those electrolytes in case I got really weak or felt I needed some salt etc..

I THINK it was this one I ordered:

Combined with a few days of a no-carb diet, boron pills will kill any candida inside of you, but it cant change the environment you currently have that is encouraging it.

You must stop eating poorly and change to a no-carb / low carb diet. No alcohol. To change your internal microbiome, try S. boulardii, it works for some people. Also, get your vitamins checked. Low vitamins can create an environment where good bacteria don't thrive.

Killing the candida inside you is easy, creating an environment where good bacteria dominate so it wont come back is extremely difficult.

u/panzerfinder15 · 1 pointr/LifeProTips

All good advice so far.

My 2cents:
Try a liquid ionic Magnesium supplement. 2 1ml doses made a huge difference on my sleep this.

Also, you probably need 9 hours of sleep. Many people sleep in 1.5 hour cycles, so you should aim to get 7.5 or 9 hours of sleep. I find that I feel better with 7.5 hours of sleep than 8, but best at 9 hours of sleep. I'd recommend you get 9+ hours of sleep continually on a regular basis until you find when your body naturally wakes up. This is then how many hours of sleep you need.

Thanks for the links. I buy Hans Nieper’s brand from amazon (NCI Advanced Research Dr. Hans Nieper Lithium Orotate Tablets, 120 mg, 200 Count

I definitely have depression as a symptom and the LiOr has absolutely helped with that. Honestly though one thing I hope to get from a neurologist is a prescription drug to replace the lithium, as it’s an unregulated and relatively unstudied substance.
Also, a note about the Hans Nieper’s brand, is that the pills between bottles can be quite inconsistent. Some bottles will have thinner pills that are hard to split in half, some will have thicker pills that are powdery and break easily, some bottles will have medium thickness pills, but most bottles have some combination of 2 or 3 different thicknesses. It’s been a lifesaver though so I’ve been fearful of trying any other brand when this has been working for me.

u/bannana · 1 pointr/Supplements

For me the orotate seemed to do what it needed to in around 2 months after that it seemed the side effects weren't balanced out by the benefits. I've heard similar accounts from more than one person. I took it for around 2 months give or take, started with a quarter of a tab and worked up to a full tab since it made me feel pretty spaced out if I took too much. There aren't many brands out there the one I found (and was reccomended by others) was by Advanced Research. My goal in taking it was to decrease anxiety and to improve sleep though oddly it shouldn't be taken at night since it can keep you awake. And I say oddly here because it definitely has a calming effect but isn't the sleepy kind, I believe it worked with giving be better sleep. I now take it occasionally when I'm feeling anxious and it works as I take it much like magnesium does only with a different feeling.

Distilled water - Distill all you want and add trace minerals. You wont have an issue then.

Personally I would got with a candle or oil lantern. Sure its not as bright and is a fire hazard, but you dont have to worry about it getting wet, corroded, damaged. Growing up we had power outages all the time and use oil lamps and it was always a blast. We actually got excited when the power went out.

I'm with ya on that. I have old pipes too and sometimes the water is salty and a simple 2 stage filter won't fix that and a 5-stage filter isn't economically feasible.

Also it's not Western countries dumping plastic so nothing you do will change the amount of plastic in the oceans.

You could cut back on the plastic that winds up in landfills by buying water in 1 or 5 gallon containers instead and adding your own trace minerals if you wanted to.

I have the same problem and have been using an electrolyte mixer called LyteShow that you add to your water bottle. LyteShow. Has blend of 5-6 electrolytes plus a little zinc.

Also have tried pickle juice which also helps a little.

u/Fancy_New_Whatever · 1 pointr/fasting

Edit: Deleted original comment and resubmitted this one with a better link.

Honestly, I swear by Lyte Show. It's a clear, tasteless liquid I add to every other bottle of water I drink during the day. It's literally just sodium, magnesium, potassium, zinc, and a few other minerals. No added dyes, flavors, etc.

I haven't really heard many people talking about it here, but I am happy to spread the word because it's been such a huge help to me.

I used to get those deep, burning stomach cramps and terrible headaches when I first started IF. At that point, I had no concept of how much electrolytes affect your body's ability to function normally. Drinking more water just made my already depleted system worse. Then forcing down a salt water mix felt like torture.

Lyte Show saved the day for me because it was so easy to integrate into my daily routine, and it covers all of your basic electrolyte/mineral needs so you're not stuck choking down a handful of supplements trying to make yourself feel better. This gets in your system quickly and you're in control of how much you use. Some people can go for weeks without needing any extra supplements, some people need a little more than average. Whatevs - it's up to you!

Also, an added benefit is that it is basically a hangover cure as well. A 1 liter bottle of water with a cap full of Lyte Show usually knocks it down to a manageable level and has been a lifesaver on more than one Sunday morning :)

Totally not a shill - I just really love this particular product

u/jd_edc · 1 pointr/keto

I hike and backpack. I try to avoid "extreme" heat, but my local area is desert/high desert, so 90 degree days with lots of exposure have happened. Managing electrolytes and avoiding those deep calf cramps is key. I like Nuun tabs, the Saltstick chewables that come in rolls, but I also have tried Lyteshow (a liquid electrolyte treatment) and found it works well to treat a whole 3L bladder before setting out for a day.

u/jakk86 · 1 pointr/keto

I dont know about leaky gut, but I have more energy and feel better doing keto (9 months in). I will say that I started doing supplements as well that have made some differences. I take a daily multi, potassium, and magnesium.

I do sleep a bit better since keto but what has made a HUGE difference is tart cherry extract. I got it to reduce muscle soreness and downtime between workouts (major difference) but apparently it also improves sleep. Massively for me. 45 minutes to an hour after taking it I get fairly tired and I no longer wake up 3-4 times a night. I sleep 6-8 hours straight without interruption and it's incredible.

This is the brand I swear by: Tart Cherry Concentrate - Made...

Also started taking electrolytes as well. Started spending 10 hours or so a week at the gym (2 hours 5 days) and just felt super lethargic after workouts and even on days off. I put one cap full in my water and take it to the gym with me and it has made an immense difference. I get in more intense cardio and I dont feel tired after working out either.

This is what I use: LyteShow - Electrolyte Concentrate for Rapid Rehydration - NO Sugars, NO Additives - 40 Servings (With Magnesium, Potassium, Zinc)

Hope this helps. Good luck!

I drink Lyteshow and while it's not a powder, it comes in liquid form and you just squirt it right into your water. It doesn't have any additional flavoring or sweetness and does have a salty taste to it, so if that's not your thing then adding a packet of Crystal Light, or something similar will solve it. I like that it's more than just salt. It also contains Magnesium, Zinc, Chloride, Potassium, & Sulfate.

The ultima has no added fake sugar, or brominated veg oil or any of that crap and has a lot more minerals than Gatorade/Powerade. I love the raspberry but there's tons of flavors and they also come in individual packets but I prefer the scoop to make pitchers of it.

The lyte show is great to keep in your bag for when you really need help. It's also great for athletes and binge drinkers because of how quickly it replenishes. It does taste like salt water but not as bad as you would

u/prosperouslife · 0 pointsr/Supplements

My statement is correct. You're confusing actual weight with a "serving".

The label must meet a FDA labelling standard which shows the % of the RDA in a "serving" but a serving size is a variable. A serving can be anything from one tablet to the entire bottle.

The weight of a serving of magnesium oxide that contains 100% of the RDA is different than the weight of a serving of magnesium citrate that contains 100% of the RDA.

A quarter teaspoon of mag oxide contains as much magnesium as two huge tablets of citrate, plus the binders and fillers.

Different companies format their labels differently too. Manufacturers can format their label differently and still meet the FDA requirement.

So yes two different brands listing 600mg of X should contain 600mg of X then additional weight to account for the compounds actual weight.

But consider these two labels; NOW Mag Oxide vs Solgar Mag citrate. Yes, both show that a serving is 100% of the RDA but they indicate that in different ways.


Look at the shipping weights for each product. The Citrate is 1.1 pounds the Oxide is 8 ounces. Yet the Oxide, which weighs half the amount of the citrate contains over 400 "servings"

There are also different grades of a compound. There exists high elemental magnesium in high quality mag citrate vs low elemental mag in low quality mag citrate, etc. different densities of elemental magnesium across various grades of the compound.

Another example is Lithium Orotate. The labels list the total weight not the elemental lithium weight. In fact, that's notated on the label of most lithium orotate supplements, as well as many other supplements

"Lithium (as lithium Orotate) 120mg (4.6mg as elemental lithium)"

Combination of pussy juice and spit can make handjobs feel really great, in my experience. If she can keep it nice and wet, she wouldn't have to spend as much time while she's giving you a blowjob with it actually in her mouth.

Obviously that's not ideal (although a good handjob can be really good, and sometimes I'd even take one over a blowjob, they're definitely not true replacements for each other), so you guys should do some research on jaw stretching and jaw massage techniques. It can help a lot!

Also, make sure she's well hydrated. Dehydration can cause issues like this. My ex girlfriend has a LOT of jaw issues and we had some pretty similar issues. I'm 6" by 6", by the way. She swore by that supplement that I linked you, and it definitely helped reduce the amount of problems we had with blowjobs (and her various muscular tension related health issues in general). A few drops in a small glass of juice or something is pretty great, I still use the stuff!

r/nofap changed my life. I was 22 when I stopped masturbating. It was one of the hardest things I've ever had to do.

I just stopped going online altogether as there is temptation everywhere. You are literally just a few clicks or keystrokes away from HD videos of the nastiest and most ungodly sexual acts that man's wicked mind can imagine. It was easier for me to just turn off the internet rather than deal with the urges to google "anal gang bang" or "cumslut milf" and go to Pornhub or Redtube.

At first, it seemed impossible. I got very anxious and crabby all the time. I couldn't sleep. I got headaches. Ugh. Honestly, it was awful.

But after few weeks, and steady doses of lithium orotate that you mentioned, my sex drive diminished to almost zero. Within 3 months, I couldn't even get an erection anymore.

4 years later, I couldn't be happier. I've gained quite a bit of weight and I have problems with frequent urination, which I'm told are side effects to the LO, but I can humbly say I feel like God has helped me conquer the lust that once conquered and discouraged me.
