How do you avoid discomfort while adapting to low carb? Keep your electrolytes in check – drink lots of BONE BROTH! High carbohydrate diets cause the body to retain a lot of water weight, cutting the carbs results in an initial loss of water weight and with that water goes salt, potassium, and magnesium. Bone broth can alleviate this by replenishing the electrolytes – it can replace many expensive supplements and help keep your sodium, potassium and magnesium levels in line. It’s great to have supplemental magnesium and potassium on hand, especially in the beginning stages of adaptation, but whole foods sources like bone broth can reduce or eliminate the need for many supplements.
Collagen, glycine, proline, sodium, magnesium, phosphorous, sulfur, potassium…BONE BROTH is loaded with all of these.
If you’re supplementing for magnesium I suggest Magnsium Glycinate.
If you’re supplementing potassium I would recommend Potassium Citrate or Potassium Chloride.
Bone Broth is a vital missing link that can make adapting to ketosis much easier…everyone should have a pot of bone broth brewing every day!
