For those new to the lifestyle, ketosis can sometimes causes digestive distress. This is relatively common because it generally takes time for your body to adapt to the increased fats in your diet. Few people have a naturally ketogenic diet, as a result most peoples bodies are initially less efficient at utilizing ketones as its fuel source. Over time, the body will adapt to this increased fat in the diet, and any digestive distress should settle down.

By nature, any type of ketogenic diet have a minor diuretic effect on an individual. This can deplete magnesium, sodium, calcium and/or potassium stores (electrolytes). This can easily be remedied by supplementing with a good electrolyte or increasing the sodium in your diet. BHB Salts (Exogenous Ketones) anticipate this aspect and add additional electrolytes to the diet formulation to counter-balance this side effect.
