Electrolyte Supplements – Individual “Rip Packs” available for all 3 varieties

We’re happy to announce that we now have pouches of ready-to-go individual serving size packets of the different Keto Chow Electrolyte Supplements. We had a limited quantity of the Electrolyte Drops but now we have them for the Fasting Drops and Magnesium Drops as well. You might be thinking: “wait, what are these?” it’s a tear-open individual serving. The Electrolyte Drops and Magnesium Drops are smaller and sized for a typical 16oz or 500ml water bottle. The Fasting Drops are about right for a 32 ounce or 1 liter bottle (or double dose in a 16oz/500ml bottle, which is what I do).

There are 50 of the smaller packets of the Electrolyte Drops or the Magnesium Drops and 25 of the larger Fasting Drops packets in each pouch.

New Electrolyte Supplements

Electrolyte DropsMagnesium DropsFasting Drops

Happy Day! We finally have the empty pocket bottles for the reformulated Fasting Drops, along with the big bottles and empties of the Electrolyte Drops. That means that all we need are the small filled pocket bottles of the Electrolyte Drops. So what does all of this mean? What features do they have? When do you use which electrolyte supplement?

OK, check out the image at the top of this post, it illustrates the differences in the 3 supplements very well. It should be noted that all 3 of these also contain other trace minerals that are naturally occurring in the purified water from the Great Salt Lake they are made from. All of the minerals are completely dissolved in the water and are extremely bioavailable, so unlike a Magnesium Oxide pill that you may only absorb 1-2% of the listed Magnesium, your body should be able to absorb most, if not all, of the Magnesium Chloride in the 3 variations we carry.

We have 3 different Electrolyte Supplements:

  • Electrolyte Drops: a balanced mix of Sodium, Potassium, and Magnesium (along with other trace minerals). These used to be called “Fasting Drops.”
    • These are for general electrolytes and hydration. I’ve also been reminded (repeatedly) that we should be marketing these as a hangover remedy.
    • Useful when you just need more of all 3 electrolytes, not just one specifically.
    • Helpful if you’re experiencing electrolyte deficiency, AKA: “Keto Flu.”
    • In practical terms, this is Mag Drops + Fasting Drops with added Potassium and some deionized water to prevent crystallization.
  • Mag Drops: concentrated Magnesium with some Sodium and Potassium (along with other trace minerals).
    • High levels of Magnesium Chloride make it great for stopping cramps.
    • We have many reports from people using to help with mood problems and mild depression.
    • There’s a cool paper showing supplementation of Magnesium for 4 months improved insulin sensitivity.
  • Fasting Drops: High levels of Sodium with some Magnesium and small traces of Potassium (along with other trace minerals). These are a new product, not to be confused with the old “Fasting Drops” – those are now called “Electrolyte Drops.”
    • This product is a result of discussion with leaders in the field of fasting, many of their patients need to restrict their potassium because of kidney disease so the old formulation of Fasting Drops (now “Electrolyte Drops”) posed a problem.
    • They also requested higher levels of Sodium. This is as high as we can get before it starts forming crystals.
    • You’re also getting all of the trace minerals, it’s a lot like using pink Himalayan salt but without any dirt flavor and no sand in the bottom of your water.

So, that should help clear things up =)

New Keto Chow Magnesium Drops

We’ve had out “Fasting Drops” for several months now – those have Sodium, Potassium, and Magnesium with a balance of all 3 electrolytes, but some people want to supplement their Magnesium specifically. We have a solution for that! (yes, it’s a chemistry ‘dad joke’, sue me =): Mag Drops. It follows in the grand tradition of “Chris wants something for his own use so he’s going to introduce a product for that” -except THIS TIME it’s because Miriam wanted a magnesium supplement =). Each capful (1/2 teaspoon or 2.46ml) contains 200mg of magnesium as magnesium chloride. It’s already dissolved in solution and is easily absorbed. One thing to note: don’t go drinking several doses at the same time, that’s a bad idea; but a dose mixed into water, added to some food (like Keto Chow), and spread out over some time and you’ll be just fine!

It does have some sodium and potassium by virtue of those coming along for the ride in the solution, along with a little boron, sulfate, and other trace minerals. It’s like pink Himalayan salt that’s specially made for killing off muscle cramps! Like our Fasting Drops, Mag Drops comes in 2 sizes: a small pocket flask with 10 doses, and a big 100 dose refill bottle that comes with an empty pocket flask so you can have it on the go!

You can order Mag Drops here.
