Why you need salts while being on the Carnivore Diet?
Salt is an essential nutrient that is required by the body to maintain various bodily functions. This is true regardless of the type of diet you follow, including the carnivore diet. In fact, when following a carnivore diet, it is even more important to ensure that you are consuming enough salt, as the diet is typically low in carbohydrates and other sources of electrolytes that can help maintain proper fluid balance in the body.
On a carnivore diet, your main source of nutrients comes from animal-based protein sources such as meat, fish, and poultry. While these foods contain some sodium naturally, it may not be enough to meet your daily requirements. Additionally, when following a carnivore diet, you may not be consuming other sources of electrolytes such as potassium, magnesium, and calcium, which are important for maintaining proper fluid balance in the body.
Salt, which is composed of sodium and chloride, can help to maintain fluid balance in the body by regulating the amount of water that is retained in the tissues. Sodium also helps to regulate blood pressure, nerve and muscle function, and the balance of fluids and electrolytes in the body.
Without enough salt, you may experience symptoms such as fatigue, muscle cramps, dizziness, and even headaches. This is especially true if you are engaging in physical activity or are exposed to hot weather, which can increase your need for electrolytes.
It is important to note that not all salt is created equal, and some types of salt may be better for you than others. For example, unprocessed sea salt or Himalayan pink salt may be a better choice than table salt, which is often highly processed and contains added iodine and anti-caking agents.
In conclusion, while the carnivore diet is a low-carbohydrate diet, it is still important to ensure that you are consuming enough salt to meet your daily requirements. This can help to maintain proper fluid balance in the body and prevent symptoms of electrolyte imbalance. It is important to choose high-quality, unprocessed salt and to consume it in moderation, as excessive salt intake can lead to health problems such as high blood pressure.
