i saw a 1:2 ratio of salt and pottasium which agrees with the daily allowance of 2500mg-ish of salt and 4700mg of potassium.

the electrolyte drink i was making came from a youtuber named Thomas Delauer.

in a tall glass of water:
2 tbsp Apple Cidar Vinegar ( aids in mineral uptake)
1/2 tsp of sea salt or pink hymalayan salt
1 tsp of cream of tartar ( about 498 mg of potassium)
1-2 tsp of lime juice (citric acid)

it is an aquired taste. i like the flavor with 12-16 oz of water but find it too strong in 8oz of water.

Hmm. I think I'll have to do some math now...

when you go deeper down the rabbit hole, magnesium and phosphorous start to get mentioned as well.

the daily allowance of magnesium 3xxmg for women and 450ish mg for men. This is easy to achieve through your top ten list of potassium foods.

you can also bath in epsom salts, but i persona?ly believe the studies that suggest that body magnessium. levels do not significantly increase from skin absorption.

i bought 120mg magnessium citrate suppliments from the drugstore. I wouldnt suggest taking any more than 120mg. doses near your daily allowance are known to have a laxative effect like milk of magnesia. the first time i took 120mg i experienced a laxative effect but not since. for me, i made the judgement call not to take it every day.

With phosphorous, your body has tons of it but it can be depleted through fasting. i took homemade bone broth during my fasts for phosphorous. Each broth was technically breaking my fast, but I took it daily because it added minerals and nutrition without causing an insulin spike. the broth is high enough in fat, i wouldnt use it when using intermittent fasting for weight loss. they are much lower in fat than bullet proof coffee.

i have no idea about the daily amounts for phosphorus and how much is in bone broth. unfortunately, it is something i never investigated.

bone broth is becoming a favorite addition to my diet. I leave it close to salt free so i can control my salt intake at the table. i think it is an excellent way to make use of left over chicken roasts.

And, I also want to freeze my week old veggies specifically for the stock pot. this with allow me to reduce waste while increasing my fresh supply of veggies. also, instead of putting 10 stalkes of celery in it, i used the trimmings from 2 celery and was pleased with the perfect batch of celery sticks for my lunches.

another caveat: Apple Cidar Vinegar while it is a favorite ingredient in some health circles, there are some internet articles that are concerned with your teeth enamel.

They recommend drinking it with a straw ( I haved used coffee stir sticks). rinsing mouth with water. And, do not brush teeth with a tooth paste imediately after drinking ACV drinks.

Are they over reacting? Maybe, I also found a comment that stated that ACV was less acidic than lemon juice.

In my opinion, it would be better to err on the safe side. I dont find their recommendations that difficult to follow so I have no problem following them.

I usually consume ACV with other foods (the vinegar in a salad dressing, bone broth, etc.) so I'll watch the direct consumption, though I think it's a low level of exposure for me.

As for brushing teeth afterwards, toothpaste generally seems so sweet to me I don't like to use it immediately after eating or drinking much of anything....
