The Competitor And Keto/os
The competitor and Keto/OS The last year I’ve been involved with a company that distributes exogenous ketones called keto/os designed by Pruvit. Like most supplements, and rightly so, they have undergone a lot of scrutiny and lashing across the net for being the product of an MLM based company. I myself was very reluctant to get involved for those exact reasons and it took me a long time to get on board with it all because I am a skeptic by heart. Especially when it comes to supplements. I wrote an article before outlining how I ended up buying in and I will link it here One of the common misconceptions about using exogenous ketones is that you need to be on a ketogenic diet in order to use them. The only reason I feel like people can arrive at such a conclusion is just because of the fact that the supplement is in fact a ketone itself. Beta-hydroxybutyrate, or BHB. But nothing could be further from the truth. The entire point of using an exogenous ketone (exogenous meaning it comes from outside the body, where endogenous means from inside the body) is to get the benefits that ketones provide without actually having to get into a state of ketosis. In other words, you can have your carbs and derive the benefits you get from that ketone BHB itself. To be completely up front, I am not a fan of ketogenic diets. Or let me state, not from an athletic or muscle building standpoint. And I will tell you why. Carbohydrates have a protein sparing effect in regards to the fact that the keep the body from using amino acids through the process known as gluconeogenesisto create glucose. In the absence of glucose, gluconeogenesis essentially robs Peter to pay Paul. If someone is interested in growing as much lean tissue as possible, then robbing muscle of the very building blocks nee Continue reading >>
Pruvit Keto Os Exogenous Ketones Review – Miracle Supplement?
Pruvit Keto//OS Ketone Operating System Review Hello! Hi, my name is Rachel Vrabel and you can find me on Instagram @womensblogtalk or on Facebook. Today I’m reviewing a supplement made by Prüvit called Keto//OS (Ketone Operating System), which is a powder you mix with water and drink once or twice daily that tastes delicious! Keto OS puts your body into a fat burning state of ketosis within 30 minutes by flooding your body with exogenous ketones. The skinny is – you’re burning FAT rather than carbs. Good for weight loss? Heck yes! And extremely safe. But what’s even more amazing is how you FEEL (remember that, because ketones are NOT just a fat loss aid, that’s just side effect of being in ketosis!) Remember the Atkins Diet – high fat, low carb? It’s a tough diet to follow, but one that works to shed weight quickly if you can endure the food restrictions. A similar diet is the Ketogenic Diet which is a high fat/moderate protein/low carb diet and there are plenty of restrictions. But what if you don’t want to follow a strict diet but you still want the benefits of being in ketosis? This is where Keto//OS sets itself apart from every other supplement on the market! Here are some of the benefits of ketosis and drinking Keto OS: Fat loss Sustained energy Increased focus Suppressed appetite Better mood Better sleep Muscle preservation Anti-aging, clearer skin Please, keep scrolling for information on each of the flavors! But first I’d like to tell you about my Pruvit Keto-OS Results! Check out my Youtube Video Review on Keto OS How Much Weight Have I Lost on Keto OS? Keto OS Before and After Photos – Results from Drinking Keto OS Round #1 (Jan. 2016) Ok so I’ve had two rounds with losing weight on Keto OS and I want to tell you about both times, becau Continue reading >>
If you follow the ebb and flow of the dietary industry, then you have probably heard of the term “ketosis,” “ketones,” or “the ketogenic diet.” You generally hear reference to them when we talk about low-carb, higher fat diets. In a society where low-fat/no-fat is pretty much the accepted standard, this whole low-carb/high-fat concept can seem a little… out there. Especially when there is so much confusion about what ketones are and what they do. THEN, I start talking about the possibility of supplementing with ketones – and people get even more confused. So let’s unpack all of this, learn a little more about ketones, and why taking a supplement might actually be a good thing. Let’s start with the basics. What ARE ketones and what is ketosis? When we think of the body’s natural fuel source, we think of glucose, or sugar. We know that our body needs to use sugar as a fuel, but what many people don’t realize is that fats can be an equally, and even superior, fuel source to the body. The process of ketosis refers to the body’s ability to use fats as its primary source of energy, over glucose. When the body burns fat, it produces three bi-products of fat breakdown, β-hydroxybutyrate (BHB), acetoacetate (ACA) and acetone. These bi-products are called Ketones. This is a naturally occurring process and it’s what allows our bodies to survive during times of food restriction. When an individual begins to follow a low carbohydrate diet, the body has to look for another fuel source, and it turns to fatty acids and fat stores to provide that much needed energy. The liver breaks down the fat, and releases ketones into the blood to be used by the brain and other organs to produce energy. The interesting thing about ketones is that BHB may be a more effici Continue reading >>
Pruvit Keto/os Supplement
The proprietary blend is owned by Prüvit and is Dr.Approved, Lab Tested, University backed and the technology in KETO//OS is patent pending, developed by one of the most world renown Dr.’s and experts on Ketosis. Prüvit was the first company approved by University of South Florida to acquire the sublicense rights to use this patent pending technology. Why would I take Keto//Os? The benefits of ketones, and ketone supplementation are vast, and as research continues to expand, the list keeps growing. Currently, research support the use of ketones for the following benefits: What are BHB Salts and where do they come from? BHB is found in nature in many foods including eggs and milk. Salts are acids and bases bound by ionic bonds. Salt is a chemistry term used to describe a specific type of chemical compound. Technically, they are defined as ionic compounds formed by the neutralization of an acid and a base. They consist of positively charged and negatively charged components, which typically dissociate in water or water-based solutions (such as blood). In lay terminology, we call table salt, which is actually sodium chloride (NaCl) “salt,” but it is just one of many chemical compounds which are defined as salts. The “BHB salt” is simply a compound that consists of sodium (Na+), potassium (K+), and the ketone body β-hydroxybutyrate. In the Keto OS product package, these individual components are being held together by ionic bonds; however, when you eat the product, it is absorbed into the blood where it dissociates into free Na+, K+, and BHB since it is a water-based solution. Thus, consuming the product directly and immediately puts ketones into your blood. Ketones are naturally slightly acidic, so the combination of BHB with sodium acts as a bit of a buffer t Continue reading >>
Pruvit Keto-os – The Ketone Operating System
Pruvit is a trusted health and wellness company with highly known ketone supplements and nutritional products. Their most popular formula is Keto-OS, which stands for Ketone Operating System and it’s a powdered weight-loss ketone drink. The company describes Keto-OS as a powder that you mix with 8-10 oz. of water and within 15-30 minutes it puts the body in a state of Ketosis. Exogenous Ketone supplements are commonly used for weight loss and to enhance physical performance because of their unique properties. When the body lacks glucose, sugars and starchy foods for energy, it burns stored fats instead; this creates a beneficial build-up of acids within the body called ketones. According to multiple studies the benefits of ketones ranges from weight loss, to athletic performance, appetite control and other positive side effects that come from getting the body in a state of Ketosis. When we contacted Pruvit for a quote about their supplements and what they do, here is what they said: Keto-OS is your “ketone operating system” it’is the First Therapeutic Ketone Supplement on the market. The proprietary blend is owned by Prüvit and is Dr. Approved, Lab Tested, University backed and the technology in Keto-OS is patent pending, developed by one of the most world renown Dr.’s and experts on Ketosis.

(diet Review) Pruvit Keto/os Exogenous Ketones: Ketosis Or Not?
I’ve gotten a crazy number of requests do this Pruvit Keto/OS review. Keto/OS is a new exogenous ketone supplement that people are using to lose weight, among other things. I found very little in terms of research on exogenous ketones in humans. Exogenous ketones have been studied a bit in rats, and no one has studied them in terms of weight loss in people or in rodents. The product Keto/OS has no research behind it either, so I decided to bite the bullet and put myself on it for a week to see what would happen. I hate using small studies as proof for anything, but in this case, I had no choice. It was totally an n=1. I also hate drinking disgusting things, but again, in this case I had no choice. Sigh. Before I talk about how that all went, let’s chat about ketones and how they work in your body. What are ketones? Ketones are the byproduct of fat metabolism. When you deprive your body of it’s favorite source of energy – glucose – it starts burning your fat for fuel. That’s the premise of the ketogenic diet: burn fat, use the ketones that result as energy. Staying on the ketogenic diet is tough for most people, but it can be done, and for most healthy people, it’s probably not harmful. Check with your doctor or dietitian before starting any diet. Read my ketogenic diet review here. The issue with ketosis for weight loss is that when you break ketosis, the weight will probably come back on. If you’re a person who lives to eat and not eats to live, it might not be the best weight-loss option for you. Because a ketogenic diet is so difficult for most people to maintain, Pruvit is marketing Keto/OS by saying that you can eat a normal diet, drink Keto/OS, still go into ketosis, and lose weight when your body burns fat for energy from being in ‘ketosis’ fr Continue reading >>
Complete Prüvit Keto//os Supplement Review
Prüvit’s KETO//OS ketone supplement product launched in 2015. Since I began taking the product in March 2016, it’s become part of my routine and diet.

Oh, some of the links below may be to my affiliate site, and if you decide to purchase I may get a commission from that purchase. This is at absolutely NO extra cost to you, of course.

Keto Showdown: Keto Os Vs Perfect Keto Base- Ketone Supplement Comparison
There has been a lot hype surrounding ketone supplements as of late….. …One thing I find a little bit annoying when it comes to exogenous ketones is over hyped marketing and how they can be portrayed as a miracle supplement. Me personally, I am a big fan of supplementing with them but I also have very realistic expectations. I think I am fairly in tune with my body so I can see and feel the positive benefits they can bring to my keto based life style from both a diet and performance stand point. Considering these kind of supplements are brand new to the health and fitness world, there has been a ton of questions surrounding ketone supplements and what defines a good product. If you are considering getting it to exogenous ketones I think it is super important to be informed on what you are buying.. And today you are in luck!! I am going to cover the 2 most popular ketone products on the market What their products are The ingredients in them How to get them What they cost Pruvit’s Keto OS vs. Perfect Keto’s Keto Base The first thing you need to know is that there are 4 types of ketone supplements Ketone Salts– Ketones are bonded to a salt for rapid energy and better taste profile Perfect Keto Base and Keto OS are both Ketone Salts Ketone Esters– Raw ketones that provide energy but don’t taste very good Ketone Oils– Medium Chain Triglyceride that help produce ketones naturally Pretenders– Products that market towards keto based lifestyles but don’t have any impact on ketosis an example of this is Raspberry Ketones. They do nothing for ketone levels or ketosis. If boosting ketones levels is something you are after there are a couple things to consider. Does the supplement actually contain ketones? If so how much? Can it help you achieve ketosis ? What ar Continue reading >>
Can A Type 1 Or Type 2 Diabetic Take Keto//os?
Diabetic patients should only use this product under the care of a physician. In both T1 and T2 diabetes, patients have abnormal insulin signaling. In T1, the pancreas doesn’t make enough insulin, and in T2, the body’s tissues are resistant to insulin. Insulin helps transport glucose from the blood into the cells where it can be used for energy. In severely uncontrolled diabetes (typically someone not being treated for their condition), insulin signaling is wildly impaired, and an acute and life-threatening condition called ketoacidosis can occur. If a person is eating a standard diet wherein carbohydrate is a major portion of their macronutrient intake, their tissues are mostly burning glucose for fuel. Therefore, if insulin signaling is incredibly impaired, this will cause glucose to build up in the blood because it can’t get into the cells. Thus, the cells are basically starving even though there’s plenty of glucose in the blood. (This is sometimes referred to as “starvation in the land of plenty.”) This causes the liver to begin making ketones from stored fats, just as it would if you were starving from not eating anything. Insulin also plays a role in regulating ketone production, and normally it inhibits ketone production if it’s too high to keep ketones at a proper level in the blood. So, if the patient’s diabetes is too severely uncontrolled, it is possible that a situation called “runaway ketogenesis” occurs. The liver makes lots and lots of ketones in a short amount of time. Ketones are acids, and when at extremely high levels (typically >20mM), they can cause blood pH to drop, which can be very dangerous and/or fatal. This is diabetic ketoacidosis. Is being in therapeutic ketosis itself dangerous for a diabetic? No. There is substantial sc Continue reading >>

All About Ketone Supplements!
Something new and emerging has finally hit the market. Something that is going to be a real game changer, that we have never seen before and, for a great amount of people, something that actually works. This supplement goes beyond assisting weight loss, that's merely a side effect to what therapeutic advantages it can offer. From slowing the progression of Alzheimer's, to decreasing inflammation and even controlling seizures and treating cancer patients. What if I told you it was possible to detect ketones in the blood and urine just 1 hour after ingesting a ketone supplement? Well, if you're like me you would probably dismiss it as too good to be true, like I initially did. But you would also be open minded and curious enough to read a little more about it before dismissing it entirely.... Right? Right. So real talk. You came here to find out what the deal is with this product I've been taking and thats just what I'm going to tell you. So lets get to it. This ketone product is whats referred to as an exogenous ketone. Exogenous meaning coming from an outside source as opposed what we're use to talking about, which are endogenous ketones that are formed by the body when diet is manipulated. These exogenous ketones are made up from β-hydroxybutyrate (aka BHB) and are often paired with sodium to act as a buffer since ketones are naturally acidic on their own. BHB Salt is a product of β-hydroxybutyrate, an organic compound that is extracted via acid hydrolysis, and then bonded with salt to create the base of the product you actually take. Once a little MCT oil (and flavor to mask the terrible taste) is added, it is packaged and shipped to you in a powder form to simply add to water and drink. Here's the long version of what BHB is: Beta-Hydroxybutyric acid (also known Continue reading >>
Perfect Keto Review
Disclaimer: Perfect Keto products have been provided to me for the purpose of this review by Perfect Keto as free samples. This has not influenced my review and the opinions expressed in this post are my own. I am not affiliated with Perfect Keto. Supplements with exogenous ketones have become increasingly popular within the keto community. While exogenous ketones show promising results in certain areas, there has been lot of misinformation that needs clarification. Sadly, some exogenous ketone supplements are sold via what is known as multi-level marketing (MLM). What bothers me with MLM strategies is that they employ an ever growing army of unqualified distributors that go to great lengths to sell exogenous ketones as a "miraculous weight loss product." Want to know more? Check out the comment section for my replies. But not all companies follow a MLM strategy and Perfect Keto, who make exogenous ketone supplements and MCT oil powder, is one of them. Are they worth the price tag? I listed all potential benefits and side effects - it's up to you to decide. What is Perfect Keto made of? As opposed to endogenous ketones that are produced by the body, exogenous ketones are supplemented. There are two types of exogenous ketones: synthetically made ketone esters that are primarily used in research commercially available exogenous ketone supplements, such as Perfect Keto, made with naturally derived ketone salts Each pack of Perfect Keto is made with beta hydroxybutyrate (BHB), calcium, magnesium, natural flavours, citric acid and stevia. How does it work? BHB raises blood ketone levels after ingestion, providing the body with extra energy in a similar (but not the same) way endogenous ketones do (see sections below for more info). How does Perfect Keto taste? They come in t Continue reading >>
