I am just starting out on a low carb high fat diet (ala Volek and Phinney) and they repeatedly stress the importance of sodium supplementation. A popular means of this supplementation is bouillon cubes.
I have been searching high and low for a quality bouillon cube that I can buy in bulk, but have not found what I am looking for. Every product that comes in a bulk amount is loaded with MSG or plenty of other crap.
If anyone can recommend a brand, or maybe even suggest a better way to supplement (broth aside) it would be most appreciated!
I like Rapunzel Vegetable Bouillon -
Ingredients: Sea Salt, Yeast Extract, Organic Non Hydrogenated Palm Oil, Organic Garlic, Organic Basil, Organic Parsley, Organic Tumeric, Organic Lovage, Organic Celery, Organic Dill. [Organically Grown and Processed]
And 1010 mg sodium per serving (or 2020mg per cube)
It's the salt they're after. You can make your own bone broth and salt it. That tastes way better, anyway, and you can use good salt that has other trace minerals as well. During the hot summer I enjoyed sipping cold broth, during the winter I drink it instead of tea.
