WHY DO YOU NEED ELECTROLYTES IF YOU EAT A HEALTHY DIET?
- Eating a clean, healthy diet, which is low in sugar, refined carbs and processed food, will reduce your insulin levels, sometimes quite dramatically.
- When insulin is lower, it signals to your body to reduce fluid. You'll urinate more, especially in the first few weeks of eating better. One welcome consequence is lower blood pressure.
- Along with the increased loss of fluid comes the loss of electrolytes, especially sodium. There's a name for this - it's called natriuresis.
- Healthy diets also contain much less sodium. Processed food has an abundance of salt. When you cut out the junk, your sodium intake will be lower.
