Keto Electrolyte Drink

Electrolytes are very important on a ketogenic diet. They are minerals that are found in the body. Electrolytes are used to maintain functions in your body such as regulating heartbeat or allowing muscles to contract. The most relevant electrolytes in this context are sodium, potassium, magnesium, chloride, and calcium. When you're on a keto diet, your body tends to release more water instead of storing it. This causes electrolytes to be flushed out with the water. This can leave you in a state of depleted electrolytes. This is a major cause of the "keto flu" feeling that people get when they are starting into ketosis.     Keto Electrolyte Drinks Effects of Electrolytes Most people have been told to avoid sodium in their diets. For normal people, sodium usually comes in the form of high-calorie and high-carbohydrate foods. When you're on the keto diet you actually need more sodium as it gets flushed out of your system by the kidneys. You may find that you need to supplement with additional sodium to keep from experiencing negative side effects. Potassium is another concern on the keto diet. Potassium is excreted at a higher rate when you're on a low carb diet. It is similar to sodium in that effect. Low levels of potassium can cause side effects and feelings similar to the keto flu. Magnesium is also flushed out of the system by keto diets. Magnesium deficiency is also a major concern for all people in the US. This is why it's recommended to supplement magnesium no matter what diet you are on. Calcium is a vital mineral that your body...
