Science shows that the ketogenic diet is an effective way to lower blood sugar in diabetes, control insulin resistance, and optimize cholesterol.

    So, as I understand it, electrolytes get flushed out of the body more quickly on Keto, which means more electrolytes are required with the diet. This explains why 5,000mg of sodium are recommended, but I keep hearing 1,000mg is the recommended daily amount of potassium on Keto, and that one shouldn't consume too much at once. However, the recommended daily amount off of Keto seems to be 4,700mg! Is 1,000mg just a minimum, or is there a reason to eat less of it on Keto?

    Remember you do not (and should not) rely on supplements for your mineral and vitamin intake. You should be getting the bulk of them from the best place - food. Avocados are loaded with potassium for example. Getting extra sodium is important in itself if you do not get enough through food but also because it helps retain potassium. You have to be careful also with some minerals and vitamins about taking too much if you use supplements - potassium is one. You would have a hard time eating too much potassium I suspect unless you already have high levels and are going a bit mad on potassium-rich foods.
