    Question Supplements

    What brand do you guys use for potassium and magnesium? Trying to prepare for P2 so I don't stress when the time comes. I have two in mind but im not sure if the ingredients are p2 approved.

    I had awful muscle spasms/cramps/twitching my last round (way too much water) so I would like to prepare this time around.

    How do the ingredients in these sound? Not allowed? Not recommended?

    -Nature made (potassium) ingredients: Cellulose gel, stearic acid, magnesium stearate, silicone dioxide, croscarmellose sodium

    -Best naturals ingredients (potassium) : Dicalcium phosphate, cellulose, silica, vegetable stearate, stearic acid, croscarmellose sodium

    Still trying to look for a magnesium. Any suggestions would be helpful! Thank you

    I just buy whatever is cheapest at the grocery or drug store. In my cupboard right now, I have Trader Joe's brand and Trace Minerals brand magnesium. I have CVS brand and Spring Valley brand potassium. I'm sure I've used Nature Made brand of both in the past, too. I add plenty of sea salt to my food in P2, also.

    The ingredients you list look fine to me.

    You don't have to buy a supplement for potassium. You can use cream of tartar stirred into your water. 125mg per 1/4 tsp.

    Magnesium oxide will give you the most bang for your buck because it is poorly absorbed. That means more effect from a smaller dose in the bathroom department, but any kind of magnesium will work. You don't want to take it long term though. The malate or glyconate forms are better for that. I switch it up everytime I buy a new bottle.

    The tartar is totally okay to use during p2 right?
    And magnesium similar to electrolytes?
    Thanks for remembering my issue though Leez! Still need to purchase it from amazon.

    Another question. I take cbd oil for anxiety but in round 2 I smoked medical Mary occasionally. I would like to vape this round, but the only ingredient that is putting me off is the vegetable glycerin the "juice" has included. Its supposed to be the sweetener.

    Q: is vegetable glycerin as a sweetener okay in p2? Thoughts?

    I will gladly stick to occasionally smoking but I just hate how the smell sticks.

    It's a tiny quantity of glycerine, yes? I don't imagine it will affect you.

    I use a glycerine soap during P2 with no issues. Its mainly oil ingredients that are problematic.

    Yes, cream of tartar in those small amounts is fine for P2.

    Apparently its 70% veg glyc and 30% the rest of the product. On the fence about it. Wouldn't that be too much? Its for the whole product. I should only be using it twice a week if things get bad.
