Pin it Follow us This recipe was inspired by a great electrolyte drink created by Wellness Mama. Apart from using electrolyte drinks for rehydrating during sports, it’s an effective natural keto-flu remedy. Electrolytes, especially magnesium, are often deficient when you eat less than g net carbs. Making an electrolyte drink that tastes good was a real challenge. At first, the drink was too salty and I had to make a few batches before I was happy with the result. I used slightly different ingredients than the original recipe to increase the potassium and magnesium content and to make it suitable for a keto diet. If you’ve ever been through keto-flu, you know how bad the symptoms can be: headaches, muscle weakness, cramps or fatigue are just some of the side effects you don’t want to experience during the transitional period of the ketogenic diet. Note: If you need to add more sodium to your diet, try Homemade Bone Broth! For more potassium try avocados! Also check out our Quick Guide to Keto-flu Remedies and pin it to your board!

It’s easy to succumb to the marketing behind sports drinks —that if we exercise, we need sports drinks to replenish ourselves. It makes you wonder how athletes and exercisers got through a workout without them years ago. However, there is a lot of evidence that electrolytes are indeed very effective in regulating your body’s fluid balance, especially during and after exercise or illness, and if you’re on a strict low-carb eating plan. On a low-carb diet, insulin levels fall, and with that, the kidneys retains less sodium. As you excrete water, important minerals—the electrolytes calcium, sodium, magnesium, chloride, and potassium, specifically—are also excreted from your system. So it’s key to replenish them in order to avoid negative symptoms such as lightheadedness and dehydration—especially if you’re also exercising or ill. Two tablespoons of lemon juice contain almost exactly the amount of potassium in 8 ounces of a typical sports drink. A pinch of salt supplies milligrams of sodium, the same amount in 8 ounces of a sports drink. So, if you want to make your own low-carb sports drink, it’s easy. However, if you’ve ever walked down the sports drinks aisle at the drugstore, you know there’s a lot of sugar and other junk added to these items.
