I feel this was a bad idea, after going to the stevia i 'feel something' more going on with the MMS when i drink it and so am wondering if the v8 was de-activated the MMS in someway? There is no added vitamin c or ascorbate on the v8 label but im wondering as tomato juice was the main ingredient whether the vit c in the tom juice was a no-no?
My V8 juice, U.S., has ascorbic acid in the list of ingredients. It is one of the last ingredients. I like the low sodium V8; but I don't use it with MMS due to the added vit C. I normally have it with supper, when I do have it. It may be that it is included in yours; but not on the label. I don't like apple juice. I can't find cranberry without vit c. My body has reactions with pineapple. I'm stuck with using distilled water for MMS . I've gotten used to it. I only use 1/2 cup.
maybe you're right and its just not listed in the ingredients, maybe our laws our different to yours regarding the amounts of stuff contained needing to be specified (although they usually like to boast about Vitamin C enriched).
anyway, i dont mind that much the taste of mms with plain water, especially at 6 drops, but i have been using concentrated lemon juice for the last few weeks and after activation the taste reminds me of a wet dog. the stevia seems to hide it.
I was using lime to activate. Too many things use lemon; even my hair shampoo. The fragrance was becoming disgusting.
Are you using distilled water? You say "plain water". When I used my filtered tap water, I would get much more nauseous. Distilled water is good; because it is much more pure, unless contamination during process. Small risk there. I only use 1/2 cup anyway.
i use brita filtered tap water only (our tap water is chlorinated but not fluorinted) i do have prill beads and was using prill water for a while but stopped that for now (im not convinced they do anything)
thing is, over here u cannot really buy gallons of distilled water in the supermarket like ive heard you can do in wallmart. the only distilled water ive seen for sale here is intended for car batteries and irons for about 80p for 1 litre (currently about $1.60)
i suppose i could use that water just for MMS as its about the same price as juice, but im also not sure if that stuff is completely safe to drink.
i know i could buy a distiller but i cannot afford one right now and have taken almost all worktop up already.
its nice that distilled water helps with nausea, when i was at 12 drops that was a problem. using real lemon and lime juice is my next step/experiment!
Hey Insight... If you are using the concentrated lemon juice from the supermarket, I think you will find that it has added vit C in it also. That is why at first I was just squeezing a fresh lemon directly into my glass, and when the drops got too high for that I switched to ACV.
I don't add any juice now. Just too hard to find juice in Australia that doesn't have any vit C. I was using distilled water in the beginning, but since we have rain water (tank) at our new house, I have switched to a brita filter. I can't say I really noticed any difference with regard to the MMS .
I haven't tried adding stevia, but might give that a go tonight. I can tolerate the taste OK, but it is harder on the higher drops.
I honestly have not found any way to fix the taste of the MMS solution. Part of it is real taste. The other part is psychological. I just use 1/2 cup of distilled water. That counts for about 3 gulps; and I'm done. The stomach gas gives me the feeling of nausea; but not as bad as the real thing.
Here, in the U.S, we have a produce called Real Lemon and Real Lime. It is not concentrated. It might have something to preserve it or else it is made from concentrate. It can also be found in little plastic containers that look like a lemon with a straw. Something like that. The ACV is the easiest; as long as you can find a measuring spoon that will fit into the neck. I don't bother to count drops. I use the original instructions that called for 1/4 teaspoon for up to 6 drops of MMS ; or 1/2 teaspoon for more drops.
