I feel this was a bad idea, after going to the stevia i 'feel something' more going on with the Miracle-Mineral-Supplement 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 Miracle-Mineral-Supplement 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 Miracle-Mineral-Supplement . 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 Miracle-Mineral-Supplement 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 Miracle-Mineral-Supplement .
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 Miracle-Mineral-Supplement 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 Miracle-Mineral-Supplement ; or 1/2 teaspoon for more drops.
Ingredients say it is "Concentrated Lemon Juice plus E223 (Sodium Metabisulphite)" so i think it it ok.
EDIT: that's wrong. the ingredients say "Lemon Juice, E223" and the lemon juice is made from concentrate.
I was using ACV to start with then I started to supsect Candida and I heard that vinegar shouldnt be used with Candida, but now i think thats resolved and ACV is supposed to be ok with Candida, so i may go back to that at some point.
Glycerin as well, thats another test i need to try.
Try adding the Stevia tonight, you might like it :)
Jiff lemon sounds cool....Everything in Australia has added vit C, it is so frustrating. And they brag that they have "no added preservatives "!! and "added vitamin C"... Like that makes it superior in some way.
Never understand why they can't just leave things natural.
I would not dare say the distilled water helps with nausea. I've certainly had my days. I will say that the filtered tap water definitely made me more nauseous than distilled or the recommended juices. That could easily be my own personal condition causing that.
Prill beads. Don't throw them away. If you don't want to use them for yourself, put them in your toilet tank in the net bag. That should help the sewage plant. Or put them in your watering can for your flowers and plants. Prill is magnesium oxide. It gives off small amounts of it. You need magnesium. We all do. That is why the prill beads are so good. I also stopped using them; because, it was too much trouble to keep filling the storage container for the water. I kept the container in the garage, no place for it in the kitchen. Then I would fill a pitcher for drinking; and take another pitcher of water out there for the prill container. Just lazy. That's all. That's me.
Distilled water can be found in every grocery store in the U.S. It is less than a dollar per gallon. Too bad you don't have the same situation. They also have gallons of purified water. Since I only use a small amount, distilled is no problem for me.
I don't think you should get a distiller. They are nice; and you can make about a gallon in 4 hours. However the cost of running them is not cheap. It is like having more than 10 100 watt light bulbs burning for 4 hours. In my mind, distilled water from the grocer is much cheaper. The distilled water for auto batteries should be alright. It is distilled after all; but, the manufacturing plant may not care about contamination. It seems that you are better off using your Brita filter, if you are currently not having problems.
"However the cost of running them is not cheap. It is like having more than 10 100 watt light bulbs burning for 4 hours. In my mind, distilled water from the grocer is much cheaper."
I have used a distiller for quite some time and the cost is negligible compared to buying water. It costs .12c a day to run the distiller. I was paying $100 a month for filtered bottle water (my family went through around 8 x 15 ltr bottles a month). And if you lived in an area with water as heavily chlorinated as I did, you would gladly pay the money.
I still love distilled water, but I have noticed that if I distill the rain water, I don't really get any residue left at the end of the process. At my old address I used to get a disgusting brown goo that smelt like nothing on earth. That told me that distilling was SO worth it.
I am interested to try the distilled water i have left to see if it makes the Miracle-Mineral-Supplement taste better, also trying juice from a real lemon. i seem to rememeber acv with mms not tasting too bad.
Thanks for the info on the distiller. I will look into running costs if i ever decided to get one. I was thinking of moving to Ireland where all the water is fluoridated so i would definitely need one there.
Hmmm, im sure i read that prill beads did not add anything to the water themselves, i think thats what the hype said anyway. just that they changed the ph and 'energised' the water or turned it into 'pristine clean pure glacier water'.
I had to make do with a large 2 litre jug to put the prill beads and water in and sometimes if they were in there for too long, the water would taste very bitter. As the prill beads were not supposed to be adding anything i wondered what was happening. I still don't know what the deal is with them, and what to believe about them, i also read some reports that you should not drink prill water over a long period of time.
I can't stand the apple juice either, and I found an alternative -
- "R W Knudsen" brand has a Peach Nectar and also Apricot Nectar, that has no added vit C, and only about 2-5% of naturally occuring vit C... I find them both very palatable.
(their Pineapple coconut has also no added vitamin C, for those who can tolerate pineapple)
- then here is also "L&A" brand Pomegranate Cranberry Delight that has NO added ascorbic acid AND no natural vitamin C
Thanks. That's good to know. My grocer has Knudsen. I'm not familiar with L&A. I've been trying to find a suitable cranberry. I don't know about pomegranate. It is very high in antioxidants. This might not matter at all. I'd just rather keep it simple.
I went out and bought some promogranite huice - no vit c, and this mask the after taste of the Miracle-Mineral-Supplement and makes me feel less nauseous. the apple juice was not strong enough to mask the flavor.
