Importance of Electrolytes and LMNT Giveaway!
You have heard me talk a lot about getting enough electrolytes when you are keto. Your body releases much of the water it retains when you eat higher carb foods and with that water goes electrolytes (sodium, magnesium, potassium). So being mindful about getting enough electrolytes is very important.
Why do you need more electrolytes on a ketogenic diet?
When you adopt a lower-carb way of eating, insulin levels in the body drop. This signals the kidneys to excrete electrolytes at a higher rate (particularly sodium).
If these electrolytes are left unreplaced, you can very quickly become electrolyte deficient and experience unpleasant symptoms like muscle cramps, headaches, brain fog, dizziness, and fatigue. These symptoms will persist until you adequately replace electrolytes. This is sometimes called the keto flu.
The good news? Symptoms begin to reside within just 15-30 minutes of properly replacing sodium, magnesium, and potassium.
How to replace electrolytes and maintain ketosis.
Most electrolyte products on the market today are either loaded in sugar or woefully lacking in electrolytes. So for years, I recommended that folks simply add more salt to their food and be conscious that they are eating foods rich in magnesium and potassium.
However, I found that many folks still needed to supplement electrolytes because they are physically active, live in hot climates, intermittent fasting, or struggled to get adequate servings of electrolytes with their meals.
That’s why I’m thrilled by good friend Robb Wolf created LMNT Recharge, a tasty electrolyte drink mix with a meaningful dose of electrolytes, which he developed with low-carb and keto communities in mind. LMNT includes:
- An optimal ratio of electrolytes
- All natural ingredients
- No sugar
- No fillers
- No gluten
The ingredients speak for themselves. Compare LMNT to other electrolyte products on the market today:
Other electrolytes just aren’t setup in the right ratios for a ketogenic or carnivore lifestyle. You need more salt, no sugar and the right forms of magnesium (most use oxide where LMNT uses malate which is great!).
They also come in three great flavors, two sweetened with stevia! There is a plain (no sweetener), citrus and raspberry!
