Fasting Salts Capsules – How to take
Long-Term Extended Fasting (Over 72 hours)
Take several servings of 3 to 6 capsules throughout the day, with plenty of water (at least one 500ml glass). Do not take more than 6 capsules at a time. Absolute daily maximum for EF is 24 capsules per day. Start with a lower dosage on your first day and gradually increase.
Short-Term Extended Fasting (24-72 hours)
Take several servings servings of 2-3 capsules throughout the day, with plenty of water (at least one 500ml glass).
Take 3 capsules with a large glass of water (300-500ml) together with your Suhoor meal. If you expect to experience heavy sweating during the day (due to hot weather, exercise or hard physical work), increase the dosage up to 6 capsules.
If you have strong symptoms of electrolyte deficiency by the evening (such as headache, fatigue, muscle cramps, dizziness), take another small serving (1-2 capsules) with your Iftar meal, suggested dosage 0.3 scoop of powder.
Intermittent Fasting | OMAD | Keto
Take 2-3 capsules with a large glass of water during your fasting window. Do not take at the same time as food.
IMPORTANT: Do not take without water – drink a large glass of water after taking the capsules. The product is highly concentrated and may cause digestive upset if taken without water. Do not exceed the stated dose.

Fasting Salts: Frequently Asked Questions
Is the capsules formulation identical to the original Fasting Salts powder?
Almost. We had to make two minor tweaks to this formulation for the capsules version:
1) Slightly reduced the amount of potassium due to FDA requirements for electrolyte capsule products (99mg max per capsule)
2) Added a small amount of calcium carbonate as a bulking agent to enable machine encapsulation. This ingredient is also a natural electrolyte salt that will not interfere with your autophagy or ketosis in any way.
Can Fasting Salts cause digestive upset?
The answer is yes – because that’s the case for ALL electrolyte supplements during fasting.
Your digestive system is extremely sensitive during your fast. So even standard table salt can potentially cause digestive upset.
If that happens, try reducing the dosage.
IMPORTANT: Always drink at least one large glass of water when you take the capsules.

How did you come up with the dosages for Fasting Salts formulation?
Electrolyte ratios in our Fasting Salts reflect the recommendations of leading experts on fasting, as well as best practices developed by online fasting communities.
The commonly recommended daily quantities for extended fasting fall within the following ranges:
We wanted to design a product without any fillers, bulkers or other junk. The only way to do that was to use Sodium as a base. We also had to stay well within the safe upper limits for supplementation.
We came up with the following formulation:
These quantities fit recommendations regarding electrolyte supplementation for fasting, as well as safety regulations – plus enables us to achieve our aim of a filler-free powder.
Are Fasting Salts suitable for Keto and Intermittent Fasting?
This product is designed for Extended Fasting. Many of our customers do occasional EF, then revert to IF and/or Keto as their default way of eating.
So if you have some product left after your extended fast, you can continue using it in smaller dosages to support IF or Keto.
If you don’t practice extended fasting at all, you can get a less concentrated product with lower sodium content. Please check out our Keto Electrolytes capsules.
Do I have to take 24 capsules per day?
24 capsules per day is the maximum upper limit per day for Extended Fasting. Most people take less than that.
For IF/Keto, the dosage is much smaller, up to 3 capsules per day.
We are all different. Your exact electrolyte requirements depend on your genetics, lifestyle, electrolyte content of your drinking water and many other factors.
That’s why we provide the guideline dosage as a range. You can find your own optimal level within that range based on how you feel.
Why did you choose magnesium citrate?
Magnesium citrate is one of the preferred options for electrolyte supplementation within the fasting community. It is recommended by many experts and support groups.
For us, it was the optimal choice based on its bioavailability, shelf life, ratio strength and water solubility.
Some people have concerns about the laxative effects of magnesium citrate. It’s true that it is sometimes used for this purpose, but typically in higher dosages.
Why are NRVs in this product different to standard supplements?
Nutritional Reference Values (NRVs) – and Daily Values (DVs) in the USA – were developed for a “standard” Western diet. They are extremely generic even for that purpose, implying that “one size fits all” nutritionally.
When applied to alternative ways of eating like Keto and fasting, they are completely off. For example, many vitamins and minerals are used for digesting and metabolising macronutrients – not required when you fast.
It’s a legal requirement to include NRV information on supplement labels. But they are not really very meaningful when applied to fasting or Keto.
