LifeSense BHB Exogenous Ketones Salts
This product works well to get and stay in ketosis quickly even after a cheat meal. “This brand extension product assists with curbing appetite while providing a boost of energy needed without jitters throughout the day,” according to Dr. Berger. “And, it’s easy to use as it mixes easily with anything from unsweetened almond or coconut milk, coffee, water or any other liquids and powder mixes for low car and keto diets.” In addition, athletes tend to use MCT oils before and after athletic bouts, and to take BHB salts during these bouts, since some individuals have challenges to digest MCT oils while performing, Dr. Berger adds. LifeSense™ BHB Exogenous Ketone Salts Powder features:
High quality custom formulation, without artificial dyes assists with curbing appetite while providing a boost of energy without jitters.
Easily mixes with any liquid and other powder mixes.

You will urinate more on the Keto diet. One of the key electrolytes lost through urination is Magnesium. To prevent electrolyte depletion, lack of energy and dehydration and the Keto flu symptoms you must hydrate sufficiently and add sea salt and an absorbable form of magnesium to your water. This will definitely make following this type of diet safe and easier to follow and will help you avoid the loss of energy, sluggishness and headachy feeling associated with electrolyte depletion. ReMag™ is truly The Magnesium Miracle™ as it is an essential cofactor required by 700-800 enzyme systems that promote thousands of biochemical reactors in the body. It regulates temperature, produces and transports energy, transmits nerve signals, and relaxes muscles. Magnesium is vital for glucose, fat, and protein metabolism, and affects every cell in the body in a positive life-supporting way. Magnesium also supports healthy bones by regulating calcium absorption and metabolizing the active form of Vitamin D from its storage form.
Created by Dr. Carolyn Dean (author of The Magnesium Miracle), ReMag™ minerals are meticulously created from a pure source of magnesium chloride and developed to deliver stabilized magnesium ions that are similar in size to plant magnesium. ReMag is a picometer-ionic form of magnesium, smaller in diameter than the body's cell mineral ion channels. Its direct and complete absorption into cells means ReMag™ bypasses a leaky gut and does not even reach the large intestine to cause diarrhea. Therefore, ReMag does not have a laxative effect as do most other forms of magnesium. Shop Rnareset.com
