Why you need to add sea salt to your Keto Diet

Why you need to add sea salt to your Keto Diet

The Keto diet is one of the hottest weight loss trends right now.  It’s a high fat, low carb eating plan whose goal is for the body to switch from burning sugar to burning fat for energy.  Those successful Keto followers report weight loss and improvements in overall health.

As you’re making the decision to consume mostly non starchy vegetables with lots of healthy fats and a limited amount of protein, one of the things that you need to watch out for, is that you’re not experiencing a sodium deficiency with some of its side effects.

When you’re consuming a lot of carbs your body retains water and sodium but without those carbs, insulin levels drop causing your kidneys to release the excess water and sodium.  To combat this deficiency nutritionalists recommend that you add 1- 1&1/2 teaspoons of sea salt per day to your diet.

Making a good salt choice is not as easy as you may think.  Like most foods there’s a difference in price and in quality and you need to do your homework on the nutrient profile of your salt.

There’s a huge difference between heavily processed table salt and the unrefined, mineral enriched sea salt.  Table salt has already lost most of its minerals and you’re left with sodium chloride, added iodine, anti-caking agents and a product that can increase blood pressure and weight gain.  

Sea salt on the other hand, contains up to 80 health promoting trace minerals, natural flavors that make it even tastier, and it can support your kidneys, your energy levels and won’t negatively affect your blood pressure.

So get ready to sprinkle some extra Sea Salt on every meal, you’ll love how it tastes and you’ll love how you feel!
