Come Fast with Us: April 9-12

Life Fasting Tracker Miriam and Chris are going to be doing a 72 hour fast this Thursday, April 9 through Sunday, April 12. If you feel the inclination and want to be part of our group, you can join us! You can start and end whenever works for you according to your personal health and situation. Miriam and Chris will be starting around 5 pm (mountain). We have a Keto Chow Fasting Group on the LIFE Fasting App, you can join us here: http://bit.ly/kc_fasting.

Don’t forget to grab your Fasting Drops before Friday so you’ll have them to help you get through an extended fast. Our Fasting Drops are designed to give you the electrolytes you need to keep you going while fasting; without adding any sweetener, flavoring, caffeine, or coloring. Just purified electrolytes sourced at the pristine west arm of the Great Salt Lake. They can be diluted in water or another beverage of your choice while fasting, or for everyday use. These drops were developed in conjunction with Megan Ramos, co-founder of The Fasting Method.

We offer a variety of size options for purchase, check them out in our online shop.

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 Fasting Drops, update on 2.1 roll-out: samples and new flavors

I’m very happy to announce a new product: Keto Chow Fasting Drops. It’s a concentrated electrolyte solution made from Utah’s Great Salt Lake (just to the North of where we’re located!). When you are fasting, it’s exceptionally important to keep your electrolyte levels up. Most people will use different forms of salt with sea salt being a good choice due to the additional trace minerals it contains. Problem is: using even a high-quality sea salt, you are only mostly getting sodium with almost no potassium or magnesium. Fasting Drops are high in magnesium and potassium, with a good level of sodium too.

  • NO sugars, calories, caffeine or artificial ingredients
  • Safe for hydration packs. Will not stain or leave a residue
  • Allows for flexible dosing – at the recommended dose, most do not detect any flavor, those doing fasting will often do 3-4x dose.

For those sensitive to the mineral flavor, add lemon or lime juice.  it comes in two sizes:

  1. The small “Pocket Flask” with enough concentrate for 2.5 gallons of water
  2. The large 250ml/8.3 oz “Refill” size with enough concentrate for 25 gallons of water, plus it also includes a free empty Pocket Flask bottle!

 

Now, on to the Keto Chow 2.1 status update! The powder to make all the samples for all 18 flavors is nearly done being made and will shortly be on the way to the place that does the packaging. The best estimate we have is that the sample packaging will start sometime around June 19-22, which is unfortunate because it means it’ll happen AFTER KetoCon =(. If the samples do indeed go into production as planned, I expect we will have samples of all 18 flavors arriving just before the end of June.

The large bags of the new flavors will come in over a month or so with Savory Chicken Soup likely arriving in early June, with the remaining flavors coming in according to the schedule.
