Keto-Lytes Electrolyte and Keto Flu Support
Keto-Lytes™ Electrolyte and Keto Flu Support
Keto-Lytes™ is one of the most useful supplements for those on a ketogenic diet or those who do extended fasts during intermittent fasting.
Keto-Lytes™ is most commonly used by low-carb dieters to combat the symptoms of keto flu such as dizziness, headaches, nausea brain fog, fatigue, muscle weakness or cramps and diarrhea.
In the beginning of a Ketogenic Diet some people may experience something that is known as “keto flu” where they may feel somewhat lightheaded, nauseous, fatigue and maybe even headaches. These flu-type symptoms usually only 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. It can take the body sometime to adapt to this process and for the keto flu to subsided.
Electrolytes (sodium, magnesium and potassium) are often 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”.
Some remedies include upping your fat intake as well as adding salt to your meals. Most people find the easiest and most effective solution is to boost their electrolyte intake with full spectrum electrolyte supplement. This is where Keto-Lytes™ comes in so handy.
Each capsule contains:
400 IU Vitamin D to help the body absorb and utilize calcium.
271mg Chloride (sodium/potassium chloride)
5mg BioPerine® (for enhanced absorption)
In addition to keto flu symptoms, Keto-Lytes™ 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.
Most users find 2-3 capsules prior to exercise, especially if they exercise/workout/run in a fasted state to help support electrolyte levels.
Those looking to combat the dreaded “keto flu” symptoms during the first 1-2 weeks of a low carb, ketogenic diet may find 2-3 caps with meals helpful. Not to exceed 10 caps per day. Then reduce to a maintenance dose to 2-3 caps a day as needed or just prior to strenuous activity, exercise etc.
For athletes such as runners, cyclists, weightlifting and cross fit looking to support electrolyte levels take 1-2 capsules with water prior to and during prolonged exercise. For extended events take 1 capsule every 30-60 minutes as needed. An additional 1-2 capsules after a bout of strenuous exercise to help replenish lost electrolytes.
