- Second star to the right ...
I know what you mean. I use BulkSupplements mag oxide for random constipation, and much of the time, it smells like old fish. I dnt think it's a quality control issue, I think it has something to do with isolated aminos. Between the COVID and the ME, I just dont have the brain power to explain waht I mean, but somewhere in the jumble of my mind, I have a clear idea ....inding for example a carnitine supplement which doesnt stink like fish is almost impossible.
It's possible, and stranger things have happened ....maybe i got a gen polymorphism which enables efficacy for low serum levels. idk.
In what I call my morning electrolyte tea, I use potassium gluconate, about 1/16th teaspoon of sea salt, MSM, bamboo extract great source of silica) and a boatload of other stuff to try to get my day off to a decent start .... have you tried adding in some potassium, in whatever form you tolerate?calcium was borderline low. mg low. sodium low (used to be high as well). potassium low.
Potassium is something we all take for granted, or at last we probably do until we develop ME. It's essential for the normal functioning of every cell in our bodies, for the functioning of muscles and nerves, it regulates our heartbeat, and without enough, we can't synthesize proteins or metabolize carbs.
It might be worth looking into ....
Hoping you find your answers. This is a great place to look for them ....
