One of the fastest ways to get it into the bloodstream is to put it on mucous membranes under the tongue (think sublingual B12 or nitroglycerin tablets). If you mix it in water and drink it, it is diluted and goes straight to the stomach, where it is digested more slowly if there are other foods in there.

I don't think the Ketodude went into that explanation - he may not have even given an explanation - but yours makes sense. Thanks, dierdra.

If you're not looking for a quick fix and don't fancy putting it under your tongue, you could buy some empty gelatine capsules and fill them up.

No, I don't particularly like salt water, it's just that I can chug it and get it done. The pink salt under my tongue didn't dissolve, just kind of hardened.

Yes, I think I'm in good sodium balance after I eat the cottage cheese, but it probably explains why I've been choosing it as my dinner after a 24 hr fast so often, especially as I don't always drink salty broth.

I just tried a little salt in my white tea with lemon. Not too bad.

I find that when I have cravings, it's for salty things, too. Even a Ritz cracker is paradise. I couldn't care less about chocolate, to my amazement. But I do reach for the salt shaker more than I ever did pre-low carb. I drink Powerade Zero to make sure all my electrolytes etc. are at a healthy level--been doing that for years.

Back to The Salt Fix (should have started its own thread?)
A new Amy Berger Book Review on it...

Also in the news....there has a been a vocal backlash to his advice About getting more sodium.

A danger to public health? Uproar as scientist urges us to eat more salt
Exclusive: In his new book, James DiNicolantonio claims salt could make us healthier. But experts have condemned the advice as potentially dangerous

He has been busy defending his book and publishing a new research paper, The History of the Salt Wars.
