ive been using electrolye solutions to mitigate side effects of adderall treatment such as muscle cramping, brain fog and fatigue caused by the cns stimulation, modulated metabolism, improved hydrolysis, reduced urination and and increased sweating.
it works great, but they're expensive over time no matter the formulation: bulk powders, premixed drinks, packets, concentrated solutions, etc. (trust me on that, ive a huge ass spreadsheet collated from products on amazon 😖)
a friend told me about the world health organization's formula for rehydration salts:
- Glucose: 13.5 g/L
- Sodium Chloride: 2.6 g/L
- Potassium Chloride: 1.5 g/L
- Trisodium Citrate Dihydrate+: 2.9 g/L
i think i can do a bit better than this, and plan to add magnesium biglycinate, and replace the glucose/sugar with an artificial sweetener such as aspartame, akin to some of the powders and solutions i've used.
mag. biglycinate has good absorption parameters, and is key for mitigating the muscle spasms and tension. i have an increased rate of dental caries respective to others, so i'd rather not further my risk of that by consuming too much sugar since ill be using this in all of my water consumption throughout each day.
i need to find sources for some of these raws though and am asking for anyones help whod be willing and knoweldgeable enough to give it!
amazon seems unsuited for some of the these: sodium chloride, potassium chloride, trisodium citrate dihydrate. i dont trust vendors such as 'homelab chemical' 🤣 to not accidentally or intentionally adulterate, and im p sure the price with an industry chemical supplier would be more attractive. that said, theyre fine for others e.g. potassium chloride and magnesium biglycinate, and i already have established vendors for those who i trust the lab practices of.
what chemical distributors would be good for obtaining these at reasonable prices with minimal purchasing hassle i.e. would even sell to me, an individual (not a company/lab/institution), at amounts greater than what i'd find on store shelves but not so crazy as to require an order of dozens or hundreds of kilograms?
