This article is about Dosage Calculator for Nutri-Align Keto Electrolyte Capsules.
Supplement requirements are different for each person
We are all different. Our supplement requirements vary a great deal. Multiple factors are involved including age, body composition, diet, exercise, genetics and local climate.
People on the higher end of the requirements scale may need 3x-4x more electrolytes than those on the lower end.
For example, compare an amateur athlete training for a triathlon in hot weather vs someone working a office desk job with very little exercise. Their supplementation needs are dramatically different, whether they are on Keto or not.
So there is no such thing as “one size fits all” dosage for supplements!
Finding the optimal dosage
Based on our customer feedback, establishing the correct dosage level can be a bit tricky. If you don’t get it right, you might get some unpleasant symptoms of either deficiency or overdose.
The quiz helps you determine whether your electrolyte requirements are High, Low or Medium. It provides recommendations on how many capsules to take and when.
PLEASE NOTE – you may still need to tweak the recommended dosages further to make them 100% optimal for you.
How does the quiz work?
The quiz includes questions on the following aspects:
Keto phase – You will need more electrolytes in the very beginning of your Keto diet, as electrolytes will deplete quickly together with stored water and glucose
Height / Weight – those with a larger overall body mass will need more electrolytes
Age – our electrolyte requirements increase as we get older
Electrolyte-rich foods – if your Keto diet includes foods that are high in electrolytes, you will have more of them stored in your body
Climate – hot weather induces sweating which accelerates electrolyte depletion
Sweating – any other regular sweat-inducing activity will also increase your electrolyte requirements
Results are still guideline only
Please note these recommendations are still guideline only.
The quiz generates a more accurate estimate than a generic “one size fits all” dosage recommendation.
However, there are still other factors at play that affect your electrolyte levels which cannot be covered by a quiz, for example:
- Dietary intake of electrolytes
- Electrolyte levels of your drinking water
- Other supplements or medications you take
Use your quiz result as the starting point and tweak it up or down depending on how you feel.
Tailoring the dosage further based on how you feel
INCREASE the dosage if:
You feel any symptoms of electrolyte deficiency such as fatigue, dizziness, headaches, muscle cramps and heart palpitations.
DECREASE the dosage if:
You feel any symptoms of electrolyte overdose such as bloating, swollen fingers or ankles, nausea and diarrhea.
