Keto Supplement Guide
The Ketogenic Diet, when properly planned and implemented, is an extremely nutritious, balanced diet composed of whole foods, with little to no unhealthy processed foods at all. However, even when eating the healthiest diet possible, you are still likely to have certain micro-nutrient deficiencies. This is due to the fact that the food of today is very nutrient depleted compared to food even just 100 years ago. Mass farming practices have stripped soil of many its nutrients, leaving our modern day diet lacking in certain vitamins and minerals. In addition, if you have a specific goal, such as an athletic goal to gain muscle, it may be necessary to add in additional supplementation to reach your health and wellness goals. Check out below to find the supplements we have found to be the most useful to make your nutrition top notch during your Keto Lifestyle.
The single most critical component of feeling great during Keto and maintaining optimal nutrient intake is to maintain your electrolyte balance. The most critical electrolytes for your body to function optimally are Sodium, Potassium, Magnesium, and Calcium. Taking your electrolytes on a daily basis can also help stave off Keto Flu during your initial transition.
The following supplements are what we find to be the most useful:
