[Music] it’s like a salty party in my mouth there are so many things that can break a fast and when your intermittent fasting you have to be very very cognizant of what you consume so I’ve compiled a recipe that really truly is a drink that you can drink half way through you’re fast that’s gonna make it so that you end up having a better mineral balance end up having a better insulin response when you do break your fast and ultimately get the most out of your fast and even make your fasting period a little bit easier so all the ingredients that have in front of me will make sure that you don’t break a fast oK we’ve got some salt we’ve got some lime juice we’ve got apple cider vinegar we’ve got cream of tartar and we’ve got water and I’m gonna break down how everything works together first and foremost I’ve got 10 to 12 ounces of regular purified water and all I’m gonna do is add about 2 tablespoons of apple cider vinegar to it just gonna eyeball that there now the whole reason that I’m using apple cider vinegar is simply because it is high in acetic acid and I’ve talked about this in other videos before but all acetic acid is is a carboxylic acid and what that means is as a synthetic carboxylic acid it ends up enhancing your body’s mineral uptake and I’ve talked about so many times the biggest issue that you face when you’re fasting is usually your minerals okay you end up depleting minerals especially if you’re hydrating a lot which you should be so we want to do everything that we can to preserve our mineral intake the other thing that’s gonna help you do is help you maintain your blood sugar a little bit better maintaining your blood sugar throughout the period of a fast can help you immensely when it comes down to cravings when you have these big rises and falls in blood sugar that’s what’s gonna stimulate you to want to eat and want to gorge yourself a food that you shouldn’t be touching when you’re fasting but also it’s gonna increase your insulin sensitivity it’s gonna make it so that when you do break your fast you’re gonna need to have a better effect from the food that you do eat so it’s very very important that you have the apple cider vinegar in there ok next up we have a very small amount we have about a quarter to a half teaspoon you’re call how much you really want to go with this of cream of tartar now cream of tartar is super high in potassium it’s a byproduct of winemaking believe it or not and it has no insulin response so it’s not going to break your fast one teaspoon of this stuff has over 495 milligrams of SEM that’s a lot of potassium you might be wondering why do you need potassium so much when you’re fasting well you need a lot of minerals but when you’re fasting you burn through potassium really really fast and when you have low levels of potassium or your levels of potassium magnesium are out of balance you can end up feeling very very weak and when you end up feeling very weak it’s gonna make your fast that much more difficult it also has to do with the balance between sodium and potassium which I’ll get to in just a second so you don’t need much of that stuff but next we’re gonna move on to a half a teaspoon of pink Himalayan salt now the simple reason I’m using pink a Malayan salt is so that you end up having a full abundant profile of minerals okay there’s not just sodium in this stuff but the primary reason we’re using it is the sodium again when you’re fasting you’re depleting minerals a lot as you’re drinking water and your cells are going through their autophagy chrous Ponce you really are burning through minerals so sodium is critical what’s gonna happen is when you eat your first meal after fasting your body’s going to be so hypersensitive to sodium you might find that you bloat up you retain water and if you keep your sodium level somewhat elevated throughout the course of your fast it’s going to diminish that contrast effect it’s gonna make it so you have a lot better of a reaction now additionally we need to make sure that we have this balance of sodium and potassium within the body if you have too much potassium and not enough sodium and too much sodium and not enough potassium it throws off the ion exchange you see there’s very delicate balance and it involves something known as sodium potassium ATPase which is an enzyme that helps the cell regulate water and minerals that come in and out of it that ultimately create energy so yes by having sodium and potassium in balance in this drink you can increase your energy levels naturally without caffeine throughout your period of fasting but also make it that much easier when you do break your fast okay then lastly I have a simple ingredient and I have the juice of one whole lime now here’s the thing with limes a lot of people will say ok limes there’s some calories in that is that going to break a fast it’s a tough gray area to really understand the fact is is that technically if you’re doing a long-term fast it would break your fast it technically has a caloric effect but if you’re just intermittent fasting you’re doing it a few times per week it is such a negligible effect it’s not gonna trigger an insulin response and that is response like something you would get from branched-chain amino acids that’s what we want to avoid so I’m just gonna add the juice of one lime here and that’s about all we’re really gonna need to get the effect the reason I’m using limes instead of lemons is simply because limes contain a high number of lemon oils now lemons have eliminates as well but limes have even more in fact eight different kinds of lemon oil and there is one study in particular that I thought was pretty interesting that really showed how lemon OIG’s could benefit someone that is really going through a fasting period now this study was published in the journal of Agriculture and food and it found that limb annoyed increased levels of glutathione s transferase in your body all that means is that it’s helping stimulate the production of glutathione glutathione in the body is our body’s inherent ability to detox okay so the liver produces glutathione all of our cells produce glutathione and it has the ability to neutralize free radicals that are flowing around through your body through traditional cellular metabolism now when we’re fasting our bodies are sort of in this cleansing detoxing state so why not add the extra benefit of boosting our glutathione levels so that we can detox even better so the limes are actually gonna help you get more detoxing benefit out of here fast which therefore makes it when you do break your fast you’re gonna feel a lot better and get more of an effect from your food that’s all there is to it and you’re gonna mix it up now mind you you can add some monk fruit if you want monk fruit won’t break a fast neither will stevia I’m gonna drink this stuff straight out because I don’t mind the taste but if you need it a little bit sweet a little bit of stevia will help you I just want you to keep in mind any time you put something sweet on your tongue stevia monk fruit Splenda whatever it’s going to likely make you hungry later on down the line any kind of super sweet mechanism like that is going to likely trigger your body to crave sugar in the future so just mind you on that so that you don’t end up having cravings later on down the road and there you have it this will not break a fast and quite honestly it’s kind of a salty citrusy weird treat and it’s kind of intriguing because it tastes pretty darn good but it is going to help you feel better and helping you get the most out of your fast as always make sure you turn on the notifications so you can see whenever I post a video but also make sure that you

Apple Cider Vinegar Drink Recipe for Fasting: Thomas DeLauer…
Apple Cider Vinegar
Cream of Tartar
Pink Sea Salt
Monk Fruit (optional)
Apple Cider vinegar contains acetic acid, which is a synthetic carboxylic acid with antibacterial and antifungal properties. It also reduces glycemic and insulin responses to foods such as a starchy meal by delaying gastric emptying. (1)
Apple cider Vinegar also contains polyphenols – Polyphenols act as a prebiotic-type substance, meaning that they increase the amount of healthy bacteria in the gut, such as Lactobacillus and Bifidobacteria strains. They also inhibit growth of potentially pathogenic bacteria. Catechin – a polyphenol – inhibits the proliferation of Clostridium histolyticum, a pathogenic bacteria (2)
Cream of Tartar:
Cream of tartar, also called potassium hydrogen tartrate, is an acidic natural byproduct of winemaking. Fasting can result in the loss of minerals, specifically potassium – low levels of potassium can result in high blood pressure problems. One teaspoon of cream of tartar = 495 mg of potassium. Potassium tends to decrease during longer period of fasting the fastest, especially if you’re working out. Cream of tartar provides a fairly bioavailable form of potassium rather than taking a potassium supplement.
Hypokalemia – low potassium:
Muscle weakness, fatigue and cramping are all associated with decreases in potassium, so essentially, by adding some potassium in to the mix, you can make your fast easier. (3)
Pink Himayalan Salt:
Consuming sea salt ensures that you maintain sufficient sodium levels, and this helps balance your sodium-potassium ratios. Sodium and potassium are two electrolytes that work together to ensure that there is proper fluid balance in your body’s cells as well as your blood plasma and extracellular fluid. They work together to make sure that the cell gets the water that it needs to continue the process of ion exchange between sodium and potassium in the cell utilizing Na/K ATPase to create energy. This will help maintain energy during your fast.
Limes contain flavonoid antioxidants known as flavonol glycosides. These antioxidants have been found to help protect against deadly bacteria such as cholera. Journal of Agriculture and Food Chemistry saw that Liminoids, one of the components of limes induced levels of glutathione s – transferase which is what essentially helps bind to free radicals, aiding in the detoxification process. (4)
The compounds that give it a sweet flavor (called mogrosides) are actually antioxidants.
Mogrosides are be able to protect tissues in the body from the damage of free radicals.
Monk fruit compounds actually exhibit beneficial anti-microbial properties that may help maintain proper bacterial balance. Extracts from the fruit and leaves have been shown to inhibit candida, streptococcus, and bacteria responsible for gum disease in the mouth.
