Keto Lytes HP™ is a fully comprehensive, one of a kind electrolyte formula that has taken the low carb and endurance athlete communities by storm! It is one of the most useful supplements on the market for those who follow a ketogenic diet, intermittent fasting as well high level or recreational athletes in need of electrolyte support and replenishment.
Keto Lytes HP™ is most commonly used by low-carb dieters and those who practice intermittent fasting to combat the symptoms of "keto flu" such as dizziness, headaches, nausea brain fog, fatigue, muscle weakness or cramps and diarrhea.*
These flu-like symptoms typically happen in the beginning stages of the diet while the body is switching over from burning glucose to ketones, it can also be symptoms of withdrawal from carbohydrates. Your kidneys go from retaining water and sodium to excreting it through your urine, sweat, and breath. This is why those who start a ketogenic diet notice a lot of weight loss the first few weeks; it is mostly water loss. It can take the body some time to adapt to this process and for the "keto flu" to subside.
Electrolytes such as (but not limited too) sodium, magnesium and potassium may be lacking on a ketogenic or low carb diets. Low carb, ketogenic expert and researcher Dr. Jeff Volek has stated that mineral and electrolyte management is the key to avoiding side effects typically associated with a ketogenic or low carb diet. Lack of electrolytes (sodium, magnesium and potassium) seems to be the major cause of the “keto flu”.*
Low carb dieters, especially those who exercise will find they need to constantly monitor their electrolyte intake and consume more than the typical dietary guidelines recommended by the FDA and CDC. In-fact it is common for the typical ketogenic dieter to consume 3-4 times the recommended amount of sodium alone.*
In addition to ketogenic dieters, those who practice intermittent fasting find that consuming adequate electrolytes on a daily basis becomes priority number one in order to properly function throughout the diet.
While all of the electrolytes and minerals are important, keto dieters have found that sodium is the electrolyte that becomes the most important one to monitor. Most of the issues with "keto flu" come down to an electrolyte imbalance with a large focus on sodium.*
That is why Keto Lytes HP™ is formulated with an impressive 2,000mg of sodium which is anywhere from 2 to 10 times higher than the amount found in the typical low quality & overpriced electrolytes being sold all over the internet!
Most people find the easiest and most effective (and very tasty) solution to boost their electrolyte intake is to use a full spectrum electrolyte supplement like Keto Lytes HP™.
Keto Lytes HP™ can also help support essential electrolyte levels when taken prior to exercise. It can support sports performance, replace minerals lost through sweating, people working in high temperatures, and anyone expecting to experience high levels of fluid loss.* Many keto dieters and athletes find that Keto Lytes HP™ makes a get pre-workout that allows them to go longer and have more productive workouts in and out of the gym. Take it alone or mix with your favorite pre-workout like PhosphaPump TKD.
Each serving of Keto Lytes HP™ contains:
2,000 mg Sodium
500 mg Potassium
75 mg Magnesium Glycinate
75 mg Di-Magnesium Malate
2,000 mg Taurine
1,000 mg Coconut Water Powder
100 mg Sodium Phosphorus
200 mg Di-Calcium Malate
300 iu Vitamin D3
200 mg Vitamin C
5 mg BioPerine
Well what can we say about sodium? Known as the "keto dieters best friend" it seems most issues with regards to side effects of a low carb or ketogenic diet comes down to inadequate sodium intake. *
Possibly the biggest nutrition myth is that you should cut down on salt/sodium intake. Those who follow a ketogenic diet lose water and sodium in the first few weeks. For athletes (keto or non keto) this can become a bigger problem because of the lost sodium through your sweat. All this sweating results in a decline of sodium and blood volume which not only hampers your energy and performance but really makes you feel weak and run down.*
Keto diet expert Dr. Stephen Phinney suggests 3,000 to 5,000mg of sodium for day and some, especially those who exercise or practice intermittent fasting, may consume even more. Salt is typically 40% sodium and 60% chloride. A teaspoon (approx 6gm) will give you around 2.300 mg of sodium. Most electrolyte products available have a small inadequate amount of sodium that often requires many servings a day to get even close to the recommended amount for keto dieters which becomes inconvenient and lets be honest; a waste of your hard earned money.
This is why we formulated Keto Lytes HP with an adequate amount of pure sodium and at a great price!
Sodium and potassium work together to maintain fluid balance in your body. Along with sodium and chloride, potassium is responsible for maintaining electrolyte balance. Potassium is found in high concentrations in meats, dairy, certain vegetables, avocado and seafood. Potassium is involved in many body functions such as heart rate and rhythm, blood pressure control, proper water balance, digestion, muscle contractions and pH balance. Dr. Phinney suggests 3,000-4,000 of potassium per day.
Magnesium is another very important electrolyte in fact, "keto flu" symptoms (muscle cramps, irritability, sleeping issues) come from in part, a magnesium deficiency. Proper magnesium intake is especially important in the early stages of a ketogenic diet. Most foods only contain small amounts of magnesium and the typical recommended intake for magnesium on a ketogenic diet is around 300-400mg/day. Unfortunately not all forms of magnesium are created equal. Keto Lytes HP™ includes both magnesium glycinate and magnesium malate, arguably 2 of the best forms of magnesium available. Keto Lytes HP™ uses DiMagnesium Malate a patented form of magnesium malate which is a highly bio-available form of magnesium.
Taurine is an amino acid with research showing that it has some potential antioxidant and metabolism-aiding properties. Taurine acts by regulating the sodium and potassium concentration in the cells and the magnesium level between the cells. Taurine is a common ingredient found in many sports and energy drinks as well as many preworkout powders. T
Taurine is the most abundant amino acid in the heart and has such an extensive list of benefits that sciences have called Taurine the "wonder molecule" [Journal of Biomedical Science volume 17, Article number: S1 (2010)]. Taurine supplementation has been shown to prevent diabetes and obesity in animal models, and can mitigate the effects of both conditions in humans. Other animal research has shown that Taurine supplementation can help prevent the onset of type II diabetes (Diab Vasc Dis Res. 2010 Oct;7(4):300-10.)
In a study entitled “Potentiation of the actions of insulin by taurine”, taurine was shown to have a carbohydrate sparing effect and may also amplify the effect of insulin, allowing for more efficient carbohydrate utilization. (Can J Physiol Pharmacol. 1983 May;61(5):457-63.)
Coconut Water Powder is made from the electrolyte rich juices found inside coconuts. The liquid inside coconuts is spray dried and made into powder. Coconut water contains an abundance of electrolytes that are known to support rapid hydration: sodium, magnesium, calcium, potassium, and phosphorus. Coconut water is also a very good source of B-complex vitamins. Coconut water supports replenishing depleted electrolyte stores in the body, maintaining proper fluid balance and preventing dehydration.*
Chloride is, after sodium, the most abundant electrolyte in blood serum, with a key role in the regulation of body fluids, electrolyte balance. Chloride is one of the most important electrolytes in the blood. It helps keep the amount of fluid inside and outside of your cells in balance. It also helps maintain proper blood volume, blood pressure, and pH of your body fluids.
Phosphorus is another electrolyte that is important to ensure that the human body functions properly. Low levels of phosphorus can result in muscle dysfunction and weakness. Meats, dairy, nuts, seeds, and beans are all high in phosphorus. Phosphorus is not necessarily lacking in a ketogenic diet but a deficiency in phosphorus can lead to anxiety, trouble concentrating, tooth decay and weak bones.* The addition of phosphorus in Keto Lytes HP compliments the other ingredients to help maintain adequate electrolyte levels
Calcium is another very important mineral that is involved in many different process in the body including blood clotting, building strong bones, regulating nerve function as well as supporting muscle and nerve communication. Calcium is not often known to be lacking on a ketogenic diet but some people who are sensitive to dairy and/or do not eat a lot a green leafy vegetables will not be getting an adequate amount of calcium and will benefit from supplement with calcium.
Keto Lytes HP™ uses a patented form of calcium called DimaCal®—designed to give user a better alternative to calcium carbonate and other calcium salt forms. In vitro studies show that, unlike calcium carbonate and other alkali calcium forms, DimaCal does not cause the formation of gas when subjected to stomach acid. With malic acid acting as a natural buffering agent, Dimacal does not give rise to the acid rebound normally seen with other calcium forms.
Having optimal levels of vitamin D is important for everyone's health, including people following ketogenic diets. Depending on a persons food choices on a ketogenic diet, Vitamin D can be lacking especially in those who are lactose intolerant. Vitamin D aids in calcium absorption and is involved in mineral metabolism and bone growth. Vitamin D plays a major role in intestinal absorption of calcium as well as stimulate the absorption of phosphorus/phosphate and magnesium.
Vitamin C (in the form of mineral ascorbic acid) is made up of electrolytes potassium, sodium, magnesium, and calcium. Most fruit intake is kept to a minimum on a ketogenic diet. Fruits and vegetables contain and ample amount of vitamin C. For ketogenic dieters who do not eat a lot of vegetables or carnivores who do not eat any, supplementation with vitamin C (ascorbic acid) may be needed.
Bioperine® was added because increases nutrient absorption. BioPerine® is the only product sourced out of piperine to obtain a patented status for its ability to increase the bioavailability of nutritional compounds.
