One of the most difficult electrolytes to get is Magnesium, and even if you can find it, it's often in the Magnesium Oxide form that humans can't absorb. Keto Chow Mag Drops are made with concentrated Magnesium Chloride. It's dissolved in solution and in its ionic form for rapid absorption.
- NO sugars
- NO calories
- NO caffeine
- NO artificial ingredients
Available in two sizes:
- The small "Pocket Flask" with enough concentrate for 10 doses
- The large 250ml/8.3 oz "Refill" size with enough concentrate for 100 doses, plus it also includes a free empty Pocket Flask bottle!
Recommended Dosage: 200mg of magnesium (1/2 teaspoon or 1 full pocket flask cap) or as needed. It is recommended that you spread consumption throughout the day to improve absorption. Consuming a full dose or more at one time may have a laxidative effect. This solution is very bitter in isolation, but small amounts in foods or beverages may enhance flavors. Suggested uses:add to flavored water, coffee, tea, soups, or other food or drink.
For those sensitive to the mineral flavor, add lemon or lime juice. For the best tasting electrolyte water, use good quality water and mix thoroughly. The sea-mineral concentrate used in Mag Drops are from Utah's Great Salt Lake and are GRAS and comply with applicable standards for heavy metals from the U.S. F.C.C.
Picking the right Keto Chow Electrolyte Supplement
We have 3 different Electrolyte Supplements:
- Electrolyte Drops: a balanced mix of Sodium, Potassium, and Magnesium (along with other trace minerals).
- Mag Drops: concentrated Magnesium with some Sodium and Potassium (along with other trace minerals).
- Fasting Drops: High levels of Sodium with some Magnesium and small traces of Potassium (along with other trace minerals).
How to measure Mag Drops
The lid of the pocket flask doubles as a measuring device, the full lid is 1/2 teaspoon (2.46ml) and will give you the amounts shown on the label.
How much should you use?
That's entirely up to you =) Around here we will take some right away if we feel a cramp coming on, aside from that we'll do a dose each day to keep Levels up and happy.
Love them, so convient and helps a TON!!!
I have had trouble with Magnesium capsules NOT giving me any relief for my energy issues, and marginally working for my nighttime leg cramps. These drops have made a noticeable difference for me in both areas. I use 2 drops for every 8 oz of liquid I drink (I also add 2 drops of the Fasting drops in the same 8 oz of liquid). I highly recommend these.
This product is awesome yes, I was having bad charley horses and muscle problems in my legs and this fixed it I recommend this product
Not sure yet
I never travel without them! An absolute life saver for travel swelling!

Keto Chow is complete nutrition for Nutritional Ketosis. It's a drink mix that quickly and easily makes a complete keto meal. It's not meant to replace your bacon and steak.
Rather, it's targeted to replace the mundane meals; running to a meeting, breakfast in the car, stuck in class, etc...
By design, a serving of Keto Chow provides 1/3 of your daily needs of electrolytes, vitamins, protein and more. The aim is that you could replace all your meals without ill effect if you are so inclined, but most users replace 1-2 meals a day and have a fantastic keto meal with family or friends for the 3rd. It's also quite tasty with a range of great flavors.
You combine the powdered mix with your own personal amount of heavy cream (and water) to get the calories you want, anywhere from 800 calories a day, up to 5000 calories. Many liken the taste and texture to melted ice cream or a milkshake. The full-flavored mixture of Keto Chow does contain whey protein and artificial sweeteners; if those are a concern for you there's also a "Base Powder" option that has the electrolytes and vitamins but not the flavor/protein/sweetener. You can mix our base powder with a protein powder and sweetener of your choice. Want easy, complete nutrition give Keto Chow a try! People love Keto Chow over on Reddit! (which is saying a lot =) Check out This review, or this one, or this review. You can also search Reddit for "Keto Chow" or "KetoChow" - both sorted so the newest posts are always at the top.
How to prepare Keto Chow (videos and more!)
Check out "Basics of Nutritional Ketosis – What is Keto, how to do it, how to succeed" for some great information about what Keto is and how to do it.
Information on the above warning: Keto Chow and Heavy Metal Exposure (Proposition 65 warning)The short version: The Keto Chow shakes have an almost immeasurable amount of lead (if a product has plants in it - like spices for flavor - the plants pick up traces of lead) - but that level is over the line that California has decided could potentially cause birth defects... if you consume 1000x the amount that requires a warning. So a warning to California residents is required by law (as you see above).
Longer version: For any unaware, California has a fun citizen's initiative commonly referred to as "Proposition 65" or "Prop 65" - it's the reason many consumer products have a warning that "this product contains chemical known to cause cancer in California" (or similar) which is generally followed by everyone thinking "good thing I'm not in California!" I'll not get into the validity of the "No Significant Risk Levels" and "Maximum Allowable Dose Levels" established as part of Prop 65, they are what they are, and if a company sells something to a resident of California, a California resident (usually a lawyer) has the ability to sue if there is not a warning and the product contains levels of heavy metals or other contaminants higher than the levels established. I can say that the heavy metal levels in Proposition 65 are low enough that coffee shops have had to post warnings and Disneyland has warnings in their picnic area. Keto Chow was served a notice that "Safe Products for Californians" intends to sue Keto Chow for not having warnings that Keto Chow contains heavy metals, specifically lead. The tactic being that many of the levels defined by Proposition 65 are so absurdly low that quite literally EVERYTHING has enough lead to qualify for needing a warning. Also, since Keto Chow contains protein, and the 'cool' thing to do these days is use plant protein which tends to be from China and contains a lot of heavy metals, logically Keto Chow will contain heavy metals (like Soylent™ does). The thing is: we don't use plant protein, instead we only use protein created by sustainable mobile bioreactors (ruminants); in fact, very few of the ingredients come from plants and the animals don't absorb heavy metals. Due to the lawsuit, we paid for an independent lab to test for heavy metals in Keto Chow, the complaint was only for "Lead and Lead Compounds" but we went ahead and had Arsenic, Cadmium, Lead, and Mercury tested. The test has a minimum measurable level of 0.01 mg/kg of material, and each meal of Keto Chow is around 44-50g of powder. Here are the measured levels of heavy metals in Keto Chow, the serving size, and what your exposure is compared to the allowed levels with one caveat: the cadmium level is only established for inhalation, if you ingest it orally there is not established level. Lead is interesting, Proposition 65 establishes a "No Significant Risk Levels" for causing cancer set at 0.015 mg or 15 micrograms per day. Lead also has a "Maximum Allowable Dose Levels" (MADL) for causing reproductive harm of 0.0005 mg or 0.5 micrograms per day. The MADL is set by looking at the level that no observable effect occurs and dividing that by 1000. In other words, if a toxin causes an effect at 10 units, the MADL would be defined at 0.01 units; meaning that the dose where lead will cause reproductive harm is 0.5 mg or 500 micrograms per day. I guess it's surprising that many of the flavors of Keto Chow do NOT contain enough lead to require a warning label. Notably, the ones with the highest levels are those that contain spices or other plant-derived flavorings.
