I am confused about whether to use Himalayan Pink Salt or an Electrolyte solution to stay hydrated. I was using a teaspoon of PHS in 2 litres of water per day and seemed to be doing well on that. More recently it doesn’t seem to be helping and an Electrolyte solution I am using called Elete, seems better. It contains, Magnesium 90mg, Chloride 780mg, Potassium 260mg, Sodium 250mg and Sulphate 40mg. I think I’ve read that AF sufferers should avoid high potassium such as bannanas. I’ve just had a banana, almond milk shake and suddenly feel very energised! Maybe it’s coincidence but I’m just wondering if potassium is ok and even helpful to some with AF, Thanks!May 24, 2016 at 5:55 am #6838
I have just found this and am wondering if this is why I did well on salt for a while but that seems to have altered now..
Salt is depleted in those with advance AFS. Gradual and gentle replenishing is good but it should be temporary and provided your blood pressure and heart is healthy. Salt can be your good friend but it also can crash you, so you have to be careful. The weaker your state of AFS, the higher the risk of this happening.

Hi Helen. Depending on what stage of HPA dysfunction you have reached, your aldosterone levels might be low. This can dysregulate your levels of potassium and sodium. For more advanced adrenal fatigue, typically potassium levels are too high relative to sodium levels. If that’s the case, then increasing your salt intake might be a better solution than the electrolyte. However, if the smoothie makes you feel great, then I would consider sticking with that!
I suffered from Adrenal Fatigue, and I'm here to help as many people as I can! (Note that I'm not a doctor!)
