After a bacon filled breakfast and munching on a batch of jerky where I got a bit overzealous with the salt yesterday, I certainly ate a bit more salt than was palatable, and I have the puffy face to show it this morning. In spite of several things that normally set me up for that early morning dizziness when I get up like lack of sleep and a stressful week, I jumped up out of bed without having to brace myself to get through that initial "whoosh" feeling this morning. Don't worry, I'm not planning on "oversalting" on a regular basis, but there does seem to have been a quick and profound difference in my morning fatigue and wooziness. Maybe my bp is just higher today so the blood couldn't drain from my head as quickly, don't know. Just curious if anyone else has noticed this, or knows what mechanism would explain it.
Update--I did notice big improvement in energy after that salt binge, so I've been adding bone broth with a generous dash of Celtic Sea salt to my breakfast the last two days, and have felt an immediate lift from it both days. This morning I can barely get through my mug of 1/2 caff. coffee, I started to get jittery after just a few sips. I've been a caffeine fiend for so long, I'm not sure what I'm going to do with myself if don't need it anymore.
I'm also wondering if my "taste" for salt could be lower than my need? I always thought the rule with salt was "to taste", could my taster be broken or would other stimulants like caffeine block the signal?
