Do you need supplements when following Keto?
Unless you live under a rock, I’m sure you know that the Keto Diet is huge right now (for good reason) – which most likely explains why you are reading this HAHA.
But do you need to supplement when eating keto?
The short answer here is Y-E-S, yes you do.
Science shows that the ketogenic diet is an effective way to lower blood sugar in diabetes, control insulin resistance, and optimize cholesterol. One of the most common questions we get from people is how to utilize supplements to further reap the benefits of a carbohydrate-restricted diet.
On a ketogenic diet, you are cutting carbohydrates and sugar. Once your body is in a state of ketosis, it is then relying on fat for energy. Sounds easy enough, right? Well, not exactly. If your body is used to high carb intake and you take those away, it’s possible you might experience what is known as the keto flu 🤢. It subsides, but your body feels achy & you are fatigued and irritable.
💛 Plexus Slim has chromium which helps normalize blood glucose levels, reducing cravings and providing energy and less irritably as your body enters ketosis. The prebiotics, XOS, feed the butyrate that we NATURALLY have in our system to help produce more fatty-chain amino acids. What does this mean for you? Your body goes into fat-burning mode more easily!!
💙 Plexus BioCleanse contains magnesium which will help replenish your electrolyte levels preventing muscle cramps, headaches, and trouble sleeping.
🧡 Plexus ProBio5 balances your gut health. Starting a diet like this can stress your gut leading to either constipation or upset stomach as you are introducing higher levels of fats to your body.
