So many times I have people ask “Do you need supplements on the Keto Diet?”
Here at Bee-Xtreme, we strive for Healthy Ketosis™. Meaning you should be aiming to get all your vitamins and minerals from the foods that you eat, not focusing so much on “getting that fat” intake in, having some sweet treats once in awhile, and taking care of our bodies the way it’s supposed to be cared for.
Let me just say… Electrolytes are NOT optional with low carb diets. As most of you know, since you’re depleting your body of carbs, not much water weight is held in the body. Will the release of this water comes vital minerals and vitamins that you need. Also..
When your body is insulin resistant (if you have a “beer belly”, love handles, back fat, did you know you’re most likely Insulin resistant? Did you know that means “pre-diabetes?”) but, when your body is resistant to insulin, that means that insulin isn’t able to carry vital vitamins and nutrients into the cell like potassium and magnesium.
Supplementing with an electrolyte supplement is crucial in my opinion. If your lacking potassium you can experience all kinds of symptoms from heart palpitations, shortness of breath, chest tightness, to something as simple of carb cravings that you can’t kick! That could be a potassium deficiency!
Also leg cramps at night, trouble sleeping, etc could possibly mean a magnesium deficiency along with cravings for chocolate.

2. If you’re having trouble staying on track or eating more carbs than you know you should be eating, Xtreme Ketosis exogenous ketones to the rescue. These are nice to have on hand just in case and will help you avoid keto flu symptoms.
Fun Fact: Alzheimer’s disease is cause by brain cells dying off because they can no longer use sugar as a fuel source. This can be detected as early as age 30. Give your brain cells something to run off of if they aren’t able to use glucose anymore, KETONES! Even if you’re not following a keto way of eating, feed your brain and help prevent memory loss, dementia later in life. I drink one a day for this reason alone!

3. B-lean Xtreme is a great digestive enzyme/prebiotic/probiotic mix with a little added fat burning. If your body is having a hard time breaking down your new high fat diet, this supplement is for you!
Xtreme Collagen Protein for Keto
4. Collagen! Let me go back to Insulin resistance for a minute. When your body is insulin resistant, your cells do not take in protein and amino acids properly. This is why a lot of diabetics will have muscle loss, muscle weakness, neuropathy in their feet, swelling and edema in the legs, and loss of collagen. Collagen is the main structural protein in our bodies. … Collagen is found in the bones, skin, muscles, tendons, blood vessels, and the digestive organs. In the skin, collagen provides elasticity and replaces dead skin cells. In the tendons, collagen acts like glue by holding everything together. Supplementing with a collagen protein is a no-brainer.
