Combat Keto Flu Symptoms with Epsom Salt

For those of you just starting out on your Keto journey, you’ll want to do everything possible to combat possible Keto Flu Symptoms. Epsom Salt, which is actually magnesium sulfate, is a great tool to use and has many health benefits. Do you use epsom salt? Let us know!

When you first start a keto diet your body rapidly excretes the excess fluid it’s been retaining on a high carb diet, taking some magnesium and other electrolytes with it. Studies show that magnesium and sulfate are both readily absorbed through the skin. Epsom salt baths are a great way to replenish this mineral and can also reduce muscle aches and relax the body.

You can also consume Epsom salt internally to ease constipation. Epsom salt increases the amount of water in your intestines, softening your stool and making it easier to pass.

At ketogenic.com, we are committed to supporting, inspiring, and educating people on the benefits of living a ketogenic lifestyle.
