Sole (pronounced so-lay)
Sole is a solution of water and pink Himalayan sea salt. It contains all eighty-four essential trace elements your body needs. Adding a bit of this solution to your drinking water provides you with much needed electrolytes and may help with leg cramps, dry skin, and insomnia. It is especially useful when you are experiencing symptoms from detoxing or when you have Keto flu.
Each morning, pour 8 ounces of fresh water into a glass and add a small amount of the sole solution. Start with ¼ teaspoon, stir and taste. You want it to taste like mild salt water. You can go up to 2 tablespoons.
Use only plastic measuring spoons and lids. Do not pour into a bottle or slosh the solution around. You don't want to be drinking salt particles, just the solution.
You can also add 1 teaspoon apple cider vinegar for digestion as well as for taste. It gives it a sweet and salty flavor.
