What Is In Keto Os?

The Competitor And Keto/os

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 >>

Does Keto//os Have Any Side Effects?

Does Keto//os Have Any Side Effects?

Supplementing with KETO//OS or following a ketogenic diet can cause a slightly diuretic effect, and can deplete magnesium, potassium and sodium stores. This can be rectified by supplementing with a good electrolyte or increasing the sodium in your diet. However KETO//OS adds additional sodium to the formulation to counter-act this sodium depletion. The first signs of dehydration are fatigue, headache, dizziness, dry mouth, swollen tongue, constipation, possible elevation of blood pressure, palpitations or muscle cramping. If this occurs, decrease your serving size of Uncharged Keto//OS or BioMax, drink plenty of water. KETO//OS 2.1 and Keto Kreme is blended with medium chain triglycerides, which can often times cause digestive distress. This is due to the fact that your body has not yet adapted to the increased fats in your diet, and is less efficient at utilizing ketones as its fuel source. Once the body has adapted to this increased fat in the diet, the digestive distress should resolve. We recommend to start slowly with a reduced serving size and build up to a full serving twice a day, but it is totally up to the individual. If diarrhea, stomach cramping or constipation occur, reduce your serving size of Keto//OS and/or consume Keto//OS with food (fat or protein) until bowel movements have returned to normal. Do not increase Keto//OS if you are experience digestive stress. Please make sure that you are drinking enough water and taking a multi-mineral supplement or an/ electrolyte. Experiencing Diarrhea and cramping then decrease Keto//OS, drink slower (over 20-30minutes) and consume with food. This will slow down the absorption of the exogenous ketones. Do not increase Keto//OS until bowel movements have returned to normal and use the uncharged version. Experiencing 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.

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!)

Maximize your ketone levels with a ketogenic diet approved food list. What is Ketosis? Explore the health benefits of ketosis for accelerated fat loss, disease prevention, better brain function, appetite control, performance, and more. Ketosis can often be a misunderstood subject. Some think it is part of a starvation diet or a alarming sign that something has gone wrong in your metabolism. But this is simply not the truth! You see, ketones – contrary to popular belief and myth – are a much needed and essential healing energy source in our cells that come from the normal metabolism of fat. Have you ever heard someone say that fats are “evil”? This has become the standard way of thinking in today’s society, which has led to our primary energy source coming from carbohydrates – sugar AKA glucose. Most people eat a diet high in carbohydrates or glucose. When sugar is your body’s primary energy source, that sugar needs to be processed first in the cell soup before it can be passed into the energy factory of the cell- the mitochondrion. Energy sources from fat don’t require this processing; it goes directly into the mitochondria for energetic uses. That is, it is more complicated to create energy out of sugar than out of fat. The process of ketosis refers to the body’s ability to use fats as its primary source of energy, over glucose. “Carbohydrates are not required to obtain energy. Fat supplies more energy than a comparable amount of carbohydrate, and low-carbohydrate diets tend to make your system of producing energy more efficient. Furthermore, many organs prefer Continue reading >>

WHAT ARE KETONES AND KETOSIS? Ketones, B-hydroxybutyrate (BHB), acetoacetate (ACA) and acetone, are the by-products of fat breakdown. Ketones can be used by the tissues, including the brain, in the body in much the same way as glucose, and are thought to be a superior fuel source to glucose. Being in a state of ketosis refers to having elevated blood levels of ketones. Pruvit KETO//OS will put exogenous levels of ketones in the body. Ketosis is a state you’d like your body to get into if you’re at all interested in ridding your physique of body fat. In fact the body will use your stores of fat to simply get you through the day- you don’t even have to hit the gym to burn fat if you're in a state of ketosis. Our bodies are lazy since we consume so many carbs. That means our bodies become very inefficient at using fats, and simply says the heck with it and stores fats as well…fat. That’s why we’re fat. If we put our bodies in a state of ketosis, we get really good at using fat for energy, and we start burning off the fat again. Essentially, keep your carbs down and your body will look within itself for fuel and the pounds will melt away. HERE ARE SOME IMPORTANT THINGS TO KNOW ABOUT KETOSIS: Ketosis occurs when the body does not have sufficient access to its main fuel source, glucose. Ketosis describes a condition where fat stores are broken down to release energy, which also releases ketones, which is a type of acid. Some people follow a ketogenic (low-carb) diet to try to lose weight by forcing the body to burn fat stores. Ketone levels can be monitored by testing urine using specialized strips available from pharmacies. IS KETOSIS SAFE? Being in a state of ketosis is a very safe process. This is a naturally occurring process in the body when you break down fa Continue reading >>

Pruvit Keto Os Review

Pruvit Keto Os Review

I'm Mike and I've been a personal trainer for over 10 years and I first heard about ketosis way back before it was even a big thing. I've been more or less on the ketogenic diet full-time ever since. When Keto-OS came out, people had been talking about Keto-OS being the go-to product for quickly getting into ketosis and even allowing you to cheat. Me being a skeptic, I set out on a 3 month strict review project, to get to the bottom of whether or not Keto-OS actually works. After months of testing blood samples and body calibrations, I am about to give you the conclusion of what I found from my review down below. KETO OS is the latest product from Pruvit and stands for "Ketone Operating System." This product is an exogenous ketone drink, which means it may provide a multitude of benefits, ranging from athletic performance enhancement, more efficient weight loss, cancer prevention, cognitive improvement and anti-inflammatory properties, among other things. Its ability to essentially trick the body into burning fat instead of carbs (a state known as ketosis) can also result in more rapid weight loss than you may have thought possible. This is what Pruvit had to say: Keto-OS is your “ketone operating system”. It was one of the First Therapeutic Ketone Supplements 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. Prüvit was the first company approved by University of South Florida to acquire the sub-license rights to use this patent pending technology. It is a powder that you mix with 8=10 oz. of water. Keto-OS is Pruvit’s flagship product and is the first product the company sold when it Continue reading >>

(diet Review) Pruvit Keto/os Exogenous Ketones: Ketosis Or Not?

(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 >>

Pruvit Keto-os Review: How Safe And Effective Is This Product?

Pruvit Keto-os Review: How Safe And Effective Is This Product?

Introduction Pruvit, a diet supplement manufactured by KetoOS, is presented as a new and technologically advanced way of delivering ketones to the body, which is thought to support a healthy loss of excess weight. It is available in a range of sizes and prices, including a caffeine-free version: thirty servings of “on the go,” in a convenient package, is $160, while a similar amount in canister form is $144. Prices are somewhat lower if you enroll in auto shipping, with thirty “On the go” servings then being $144 and a similar canister being $133. The best bargain would seem to be the VIP package, which gives you 30 servings in a canister and 45 “on the go” for $350 total. How Pruvit Keto-OS Works? Pruvit’s range of products are intended to start the process of ketosis inside of your body through the use of ketones derived from other sources, instead of having to try to achieve that state inside of your body with a very low carbohydrate diet. It comes in the form of a drink mix so that it may be conveniently taken along with a supply of water. Pruvit Keto-OS Ingredients The exact amount of various ingredients in Pruvit’s drink mixture is not made readily available, although Keto OS does describe the key active ingredient, which is Beta Hydroxybutyrate. This substance is naturally produced by the body during ketosis, and the theory is that by consuming it directly, your body will enter that biological state more easily, giving you the various related benefits. It also contains some vitamins and minerals, as well as Stevia powder (for sweetness), and in some formulations, caffeine. However, the exact amount of these ingredients are not listed, and while their website describes some studies on the benefits of ketosis, there is no clear research on this prod Continue reading >>

Keto Os Review

Created by Prüvit, Keto OS, which stands for Ketone Operating System, is a “revolutionary drink mix based on a proprietary ketone energy technology. It delivers advanced macro nutritionals and promotes optimized cellular regeneration, energy and longevity.” [1] Also known as the keto diet, KETO OS is a line of supplements that promise to turbocharge your metabolism and send your body into ketosis without resorting to the draconian no-carb, all-fat diet. The History of Ketones Known for centuries, it wasn’t until a hundred years ago that ketones (Beta-hydroxybutyrate) were used to treat seizures in kids with epilepsy. A “neuroprotective effect” was produced, which calms the nervous system. Soon researchers were exploring an expanded use of ketones to help with mental, emotional and cognitive health, according to Prüvit spokesperson Andra “Dr. Andy” Campitelli , a naturopathic doctor. She says ketone use was expanded as a tool to enhance athletic performance. Ketones result when the body burns fat for fuel. [2] Prüvit on Better Business Bureau There are two Prüvit profiles on the Better Business Bureau site, one in Indiana and one in Texas. Both sell Prüvit products, but have no website link. The Texas profile has an F rating, mostly for lack of response to customer complaints about return issues. The Indiana profile has an A rating, but no reviews or complaints, and it’s only been open a year. Neither profile lists the CEO the same as the website. There is no phone contact on either the Prüvit website or the Texas BBB profile, only an “Ask a Question” form that goes via email. The Indiana profile does have a phone number: (812) 631-4282.

The 3.0 also has caffeine, and 2.1 comes in in both caffeine and a caffeine free versions. Many people will interchange products, such as using the 2.1 in the morning and 3.0 later in the day. Does KETO//KREME have ketones in it? No. There is no beta hydroxybutyrate in the new KETO//KREME. It has coconut shortening, C-8, C-10, C-12. The cool thing is that our body uses those things to produce ketones from out liver. So, it’s a source of ketones that our body has to metabolize. It also has ceylon cinnamon.

Keto Os- Better Fuel, Better You

Keto Os- Better Fuel, Better You

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 efficient source of fuel for the brain than glucose, and because ketones are water-soluble substances, any excesses are eliminated through the urine (BHB and ACA), or the breathe (acetone). What are the benefits? The ketogenic diet first became popular as a treatment for seizures in children suffering from epilepsy, and the neuro-protective benefits of ketones came to light. As research into the process of ketosis expands, the list of benefits just continues to grow. Weight loss & Blood Sugar Balance This is one of the more popular, and desired benefits from ketones. Ketones have been found to improve insulin sensitivity, lower and normalize blood sugar levels, contribute to an increased state of satiety, and decrease food cravings Continue reading >>

Keto Os Side Effects And Benefits: Is It Worth It?

Keto Os Side Effects And Benefits: Is It Worth It?

Keto OS or — as the company writes it — KETO//OS is an exogenous ketone supplement that promises better mood, strength, energy, sleep, focus, and fat loss. Here is a description of the product directly from the website: “KETO//OS® (Ketone Operating System) is a revolutionary drink mix based on a proprietary ketone energy technology. It delivers advanced macro nutritionals and promotes optimized cellular regeneration, energy and longevity.” With the subtle hints of science and the usage of unnecessarily complicated terminology, this supplement smells a lot like another fat loss supplement scam. Could KETO//OS’s advanced macro nutritional energy technology really improve mood, strength, energy, sleep, focus, and fat loss? Plot twist. Some — but not all — of Pruvit’s claims may be true. Unfortunately, there may be some downsides as well. A Quick Overview of Ketones, Ketosis, and Other Keto Terms Before we jump into the science and side effects of KETO//OS, we must develop a basic understanding of some not-so-common terms. Throughout this article, you will see the words ketosis, ketogenesis, ketones, ketone bodies, and exogenous ketones. They are all related, but also have some significant differences. Ketosis is when our body burns ketones for fuel, and these ketones are created via a process called ketogenesis. For the purposes of this article, ketones and ketone bodies are one in the same (to find out the differences between the two, check out our article on ketones). Ketone bodies are produced by the liver during periods of starvation or carbohydrate restriction. Exogenous ketones are ketone bodies that are not made endogenously (in the body). They are typically ingested in the form of ketone salts, which are the main active ingredients in Keto//OS prod Continue reading >>
