Why are electrolytes important on keto?
When you’re in ketosis, you are essentially teaching your body not to retain water. Because of this, as much as you focus on your macronutrients, your natural balance has been compromised. Sodium, potassium and magnesium are particularly affected, so the need for supplements can arise to prevent flu-like symptoms, or ‘the keto flu’.
How much electrolytes do I need on keto?
It’s debatable - but somewhere in the range of 2000-5000mg of sodium, up to 5000mg of potassium, and up to 400mg of magnesium per day.
