Although we are wrongly led to believe salt is bad for us, it’s quite imperative we consume enough of the right salt, especially while on a ketogenic diet.
That said, quality certainly matters and is why I use @redmondsrealsalt for my salty needs.
I got to spend some time with the company and their team in Utah a few months ago, check out their mine, learn how they operate and learn the benefits of quality salt, especially if you’re on a keto diet.
Some benefits of quality salt:
– supports the electrical signaling between the brain, muscles and nervous system.
– helps keep our cells hydrated.
– prevents muscle cramping.
– helps the cells uptake potassium.
– aids in digestion.
– helps the thyroid properly function.
– rich in trace minerals.
– helps nutrient absorption.
– helps maintain an adequate blood volume and blood pressure ensuring that our tissues get adequate oxygen and nutrients from the blood.
The issue is, not all salt is created equally. I use Redmond’s for the simple fact that it’s the highest quality unrefined salt on the market without the containments of microplastics and chemicals, and it contains 60+ trace minerals.
What salt do you use?

Have you had “keto flu”? I experienced it when I first set out on a ketogenic journey. I also lacked a ton of simple education in regards to navigating the adaptation process and how to avoid or lessen the effects of the keto flu.
Electrolytes, specifically sodium, can have a massive positive effect on how we feel and function even if we’re not following a ketogenic diet and lifestyle.
Brands like @realsaltketo and @drinklmnt are my choices of getting in extra sodium in my day. I have zero affiliation with them and purchase their products myself because @jciake and I believe in consuming the best quality foods and supplements.
On the note of quality supplements, another tool you can add to the keto arsenal to avoid anything but optimal levels of brian performance is exogenous ketones.
@justpruvit makes the only bio-available, naturally fermented, and free-acid forms of exogenous (external) ketones. If you choose the salt (powder) form, you’ll get the added benefits of sodium along with the ketones.
Exogenous ketones help keto newcomers to adapt by increasing/multiplying “MCT transporters”, which are basically tunnels shuffling ketones from our blood to our cells for energy.
I’ll be sharing more about WHY @justpruvit for exogenous ketones and the benefits of exogenous ketones soon!
