Minerals: ZINC FOR APPETITE & Magnesium for…. life!
The major zinc protein in saliva is called gustin. Gustin influences your sense of taste. Because of this relationship between zinc and taste, and because taste and smell are so closely linked in human physiology, impaired sense of taste and smell are common symptoms of zinc deficiency. Supplementing with zinc can help kids with feeding problems.

First you need to find a Milk of Magnesia without any added ingredients (no hypochlorite!)
Dollar General’s generic store brand does not have any added ingredients (I use this)
1 liter bottle of carbonated water (COLD)
(not club soda or tonic water)
pour some of the water into a glass
add 3 Tablespoons of MoM into the liter bottle (that’s missing some that’s in that glass)
screw on the cap
add that water from the glass back in

this is a CONCENTRATE
add a splash to your water any time you’re drinking
or add a splash to any beverage, cold or hot
don’t drink w/ meals
