Understanding POTS and How Salty Provisions Can Help

Understanding POTS and How Salty Provisions Can Help

What is POTS?

Postural Orthostatic Tachycardia Syndrome (POTS) is a condition that affects blood flow and circulation, causing the heart rate to increase significantly when transitioning from lying down to standing up. This can lead to symptoms such as dizziness, lightheadedness, fatigue, and even fainting. POTS is a form of Dysautonomia, a disorder of the autonomic nervous system, which regulates involuntary body functions like heart rate, blood pressure, and digestion.

Living with POTS: Daily Challenges

Living with POTS can be challenging. Many individuals with this condition experience a rapid increase in heart rate, sometimes over 30 beats per minute, upon standing. This sudden change can cause a range of symptoms that make daily activities difficult. Fatigue and lightheadedness can persist throughout the day, affecting quality of life and the ability to perform routine tasks.

The Importance of Sodium and Hydration

One of the key management strategies for POTS involves increasing sodium and fluid intake. Sodium helps increase blood volume, which can alleviate some of the symptoms associated with POTS. Drinking plenty of fluids helps maintain blood volume and prevents dehydration, a common issue for those with POTS.

How Salty Provisions Can Support Those with POTS

At Salty Provisions, we understand the importance of managing POTS through diet. Our products are designed to provide flavorful, healthy ways to increase your sodium intake to stay salty and hydrated without compromising on taste or quality.

Flaky Norwegian Sea Salt

Our flaky Norwegian sea salt is perfect for those needing to boost their sodium intake. Rich in trace minerals and free from microplastics, it’s a natural and effective way to support blood volume and circulation. It has a delicate, flaky texture and pleasant flavor without the harsh aftertaste so many salts have. It’s fun for snacking, too. No longer will you feel “punished” by having to consume more salt.

Liquid Salts for our Low Sodium People

For those who need an easy way to manage a reduced sodium intake, our liquid salts are a game-changer. Available in flavors like Ocean (sea salt), Garlic, Citrus, and Salt+Vinegar, they offer a convenient solution for seasoning foods and rehydrating leftovers. Each spray contains only 13 mg of sodium, allowing for precise control over your intake. This makes it easy to stay within your recommended sodium limits while still enjoying delicious, evenly seasoned meals.

Savory Electrolyte Broth

Our Savory Electrolyte Broth is an excellent alternative to sweetened sports drinks. It provides a delicious, savory way to replenish electrolytes and stay hydrated. Made with clean ingredients and free from additives, this broth supports hydration and electrolyte balance naturally and offers a  bit of a brain boost from the MCT. It’s perfect for sipping throughout the day or as a comforting hot drink. It can also be mixed with bone broth instead of hot water and used as a soup base. 

Salted Maple Electrolyte Latte

For those who prefer a bit of sweetness, our Salted Maple Electrolyte Latte, made with mushroom coffee and MCT, offers a unique and tasty option. It’s rich in electrolytes and provides a natural source of energy, helping to combat fatigue and support overall well-being. Enjoy it hot or cold, or add it to a smoothie or a cup of coffee.
