5. Cravings for Salt
Adrenal fatigue can deplete your body of vital minerals responsible for maintaining physiological and neurological function. Aldosterone, another hormone produced by the adrenal glands, governs the re-uptake of Chloride and sodium to the bloodstream.
A lack of aldosterone leaves the body unable to regulate the balance of these critical minerals. Instead of being reabsorbed into the body, they are flushed out in urine instead. Consider adding a mineral complex to your diet to support your body during the recovery phase.
Minerals are also responsible for your levels of hydration. If there are low levels of sodium and potassium, then the body will not hold onto water. Your body is 80% water and it’s possible to lose 1 to 3% of your total body weight to dehydration as water escapes your system.
Add freshly cracked pink Himalayan salt to all of your meals. The addition of supplemental sodium to your system will help you retain water.
