Perhaps some updates here too. After the second day I upped the dose to 700mg/day of borax. This seemed a bit too much honestly as it did upset my
stomach somewhat. So After a few days I took some days of rest not ingesting any Borax+Iodide mix.
But the thing that changed almost overnight was my sleep cycle. It's actually quite intriguing, like clockwork my body would force me to go to sleep
and I would always wake up before the alarm goes off.
Besides that no significant physical changes or mental changes have been observed. Then again I never had any real aches besides constant tiredness.
Meanwhile I have also been working on the Magnesium bicarbonate/ascorbate solution. This was quite an interesting journey as it left me riddled with
some questions. I thought it would be wise to pursue Magnesium ascorbate after seeing that liposomal vitamin C thread found on ATS. Both Magnesium and
AA work mainly inside the cell so using liposomes to transport them there should be quite an interesting experiment.
This lead me to question the methods of synthesizing Magnesium ascorbate which there should be two:
1) just mixing Magnesium oxide and AA should in theory give you magnesium ascorbate
2) making Magnesium bicarbonate by carbonating Mg-oxide (I used a Sodastream for this) then throwing in some AA to obtain Magnesium ascorbate after
I did both however the difference is quite remarkable. Here's the result:
I have no clue why the 1st method would give a dark purple solution whereas the second is mostly clear.However I have a little hunch that the dark
purple/brownish color is due to degraded AA, but even so how or why?
