What is the Keto Flu?

In the beginning of a Ketogenic Diet some people may experience something that is known as keto flu where they may feel somewhat lightheaded, nauseous, fatigue and maybe even headaches. These flu-type symptoms usually only happen in the beginning stages of the diet while the body is switching over from burning glucose to ketones it can also be symptoms of withdrawal from carbohydrates. It can take the body sometime to adapt to this process and for the keto flu to subsided.

Lack of electrolytes (sodium, magnesium and potassium) seems to be the major cause of the keto flu.  Some remedies include upping your fat intake as well as adding salt to your meals.

Most people find the easiest and most effective solution is to boost their electrolyte intake with full spectrum electrolyte supplement. This is where Keto-Lytes™ comes in so handy.

Keto-Lytes™ is most commonly used by low-carb dieters to combat the symptoms if keto flu such as dizziness, headaches, nausea brain fog, fatigue, muscle weakness or cramps and diarrhea.

We also recommend a solid multi mineral supplement like KetoGenics Mega Mineral and of course a daily multi vitamin like Keto Mutli-Vit that has added electrolytes to support overall health.
