Keto and Electrolytes

Electrolytes are simply minerals your body uses to perform important functions.

Primary electrolytes include minerals like sodium, calcium, magnesium, potassium and chloride.

These minerals serve super-important roles in your body.

You can think of them as the powerhouses of your bodily functions. They’re the MVPs that regulate your heartbeat, muscle contractions, and hydration levels.

Without enough electrolytes, you might start feeling like a wilted flower on a scorching summer day. 🥀

As you can see, having a healthy (and balanced) supply of electrolytes is critical to keeping your body happy and health.

But here’s the thing: when you’re rocking the keto lifestyle, your body tends to shed water faster than a dog shakes off after a bath.

Getting enough electrolytes on the keto diet can be a challenge.

That’s because your body excretes (pees out) more electrolytes when your insulin levels are low as a result of your low-carb diet.

It’s a good thing to have low insulin, but losing too many electrolytes can result in what’s commonly called the “keto flu.”

This isn’t a true viral illness but instead an overall feeling of malaise and tiredness.
