Do you need to take Electrolytes before Intermittent Fasting?

The short answer is YES… but here’s why..

Simply put, fasting depletes your body’s stores of essential electrolytes rather quickly (especially at the beginning of a fast), and can lead to the following uncomfortable side effects:

  • Low energy*
  • Feeling sluggish*
  • Headachy*
  • Muscle twitches, spasms or cramps*
  • Irritability*

Because electrolytes are critical for energy production and cellular function, it’s important that you have plenty in your body before your fast begins in order to help avoid feeling downright crappy.*

If you only drink plain water, without adding electrolytes, it can actually cause you to lose even more electrolytes through urination, which can leave your body extremely depleted.*

Jigsaw Electrolyte Supreme™ contains absolutely NO SUGAR and delivers a balanced combination of 5 essential electrolytes: Magnesium, Calcium, Potassium, Sodium, and Chloride. But that’s not all -- it also contains 260 mg of Vitamin C plus 13 other critical vitamins and minerals per serving.*
