Many of our food sources today don’t offer all the minerals and vitamins we need on a daily basis. It’s a good idea to find this nutrition in other ways. Our markets and vending provide such options. One major need is electrolytes.


Electrolytes are minerals in the body that have an electric charge. They do play a crucial role in many of the body’s daily functions. These minerals include sodium, potassium, calcium, and magnesium which has been known to help with cramps. Electrolytes are important for maintaining the balance of fluids in the body. They also help in controlling the movement of nutrients in and out of cells and regulating the heart’s rhythm. These functions are important and that’s why we offer food that promote a healthy immune system in vending machines and markets.


One thing that is very popular currently is the low carb way of eating. When doing a low carb diet or any diet that you limit certain foods, it’s important to make sure you are getting enough electrolytes. In doing so you will avoid some issues. A low carb diet can cause the body to lose more electrolytes through urine or sweat and this can lead to dehydration and an imbalance of electrolytes. This can cause some uncomfortable symptoms like fatigue, muscle cramps, and headaches.


One of the best ways to make sure you are getting enough electrolytes on a low carb diet is to eat a plenty of foods that are high in electrolytes. Here is a list of some foods that are high in potassium: leafy greens, avocados, mushrooms, and nuts. Foods that are high in magnesium that are healthier options are almonds, spinach, and dark chocolate. Foods that are high in calcium include dairy products, leafy greens, and almonds.


If you go down the vitamin isle you will have more options with plenty of supplements like electrolyte powders or tablets. These supplements can be added to water or other drinks and can help replace any electrolytes that may have been lost.


It’s also important to remember when trying out a low carb diet, it’s common to experience the keto flu as they call it. This is caused by the body adjusting to the new way of eating. Some of the symptoms of the keto flu include fatigue, headaches, and muscle cramps. These symptoms can often be reduced with more electrolytes. A little secret people say helps is having a tablespoon of mustard or pickle juice. Something about it helps a lot!


So just keep in mind, electrolytes play a big-time role in many of the body’s functions and are especially important for those following a low carb diet. To avoid potential health issues, make sure to eat a variety of nutrient-dense foods that are high in electrolytes and consider supplementing with electrolyte powders or tablets if necessary. And when transitioning to a low carb diet, consume more electrolytes to help reduce the symptoms of the keto flu.
