When I’m low on sodium and potassium, I like to mix up some electrolyte punch. I drink it like it’s Gatorade®. It’s cheap, doesn’t have sugar, and might be why I don’t get headaches while doing the low-carb thing.
Lite salt is the secret ingredient here. It uses potassium to dilute the salt for those that need to cut back…perfect someone like me that needs to boost potassium intake.
