Question: I am taking baking soda mixed with water and coconut oil. My first lab results indicated about a 30 reduction and cholestron drop from the higher to the lowar window. I also see that my magnesium went from normal to low. Do you think the low magnesium is from the coconut or baking soda?

Brief Answer:
Possibly baking soda

Detailed Answer:
Thanks for asking on HealthcareMagic.

I have gone through your query. It is hard to say whether cococut or baking soda is responsible. But I think that baking soda is more likely among the two to have caused the drop.
