Electrolytes For Fasting

Supplementing Our Changes In Diet + Movement

Changes in eating patterns created by following a calorie-deficient diet or avoiding certain food groups can create imbalances in our body, especially dehydration. That's because the electrolytes that you would normally receive through your food and drink is no longer available and will need to be replaced. And when the body is low on electrolytes, a crucial component for maintaining proper hydration, the resulting imbalances in fluid levels can steal away your energy and leave you experiencing symptoms like fatigue, headaches, muscle cramps, and irregular heartbeat.

The Need For Electrolytes When Fasting

Chronic nutrient deficiency in important minerals and electrolytes brings the body to a state of dehydration. The body then sets itself into a survival cycle as it experiences a continuous loss of electrolytes once dehydration sets in. During fasting, the body's natural electrolyte balance can be disrupted, as the usual intake of foods rich in essential minerals like sodium, potassium, and magnesium is significantly reduced. The need for hydration doesn't change during short- or prolonged fasting cycles. And pairing more movement and exercise with fasting creates higher electrolyte excretion through sweating and heavier breathing.

Helps You Stay More Hydrated

Electrolytes, such as sodium, potassium, and magnesium, help regulate body fluid balance, ensuring proper hydration by retaining moisture in the cells and facilitating efficient absorption of water in the body.

Supports Insulin Management

Insulin's inflammatory effects and its action on sodium excretion requires the body's electrolyte levels to stay balanced. Low levels of these mineral levels can keep insulin levels low, and conditions like Keto Flu set in.

Stop Causing An Insulin Issue

Fasting requires you to eliminate anything that can cause an insulin response during fasting times, including even small amounts of sugar or additives in some commercial electrolyte drinks.

Working Against Electrolyte Deficiency

Maintaining a proper electrolyte balance is therefore crucial for those practicing fasting, both for their overall well-being and to maximize the benefits of the fasting process. And, fasting often leads to increased renal excretion of electrolytes, as the body attempts to maintain homeostasis. The combined effect of reduced dietary intake and increased urinary loss can significantly lower electrolyte levels in the body. This reduction can lead to an imbalance in these key electrolytes. This disruption in electrolyte balance is often responsible for common fasting-related symptoms like headaches, fatigue, dizziness, and muscle cramps.
