- Appetite Control: ketones naturally suppress appetite
- Fat Loss: targets and burns body fat
- Fitness: “duel fuel” energy improves endurance
- Preserves Muscle: ketones protect muscle during periods of calorie restriction
Ketoshakes supplement the body with ketones providing the benefits of ketosis (appetite control, energy, fat burning and weight loss). It is a tool for people that want the benefits of ketosis without the harsh diet restrictions. Ketoshakes taste great and are a fast, easy way to put the body in ketosis.
Ketones deliver a more efficient and higher energy yield than glucose which makes them the ideal fuel for powering the human body. Ketones are traditionally only produced during times of prolonged fasting or carb restriction and therefore have been limited in their availability as an alternative energy source.
Ketoshakes contains a specifically engineered ratio of proprietary ketone mineral salts that provide a high-energy fuel compound without having to incorporate a very low carbohydrate diet. As an added benefit, Ketoshakes may assist in improving the pattern of “bad” cholesterol (LDL) and increases levels of "good" cholesterol (HDL). Ketoshakes provide an exceptional nutritional foundation to help you lose weight, feel great and perform your very best especially when paired with a moderately ketogenic diet.
FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS:
KNOWLEDGE IS POWER
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.
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 fat. Most people have been in ketosis at some point, due to exercise or dietary changes, although not usually long enough to experience the amazing benefits conferred through elevated ketones over an extended period of time.
HOW DO I INCREASE KETONES LEVELS IN MY BODY?
In the past, the process of increasing ketones in the blood was achieved through a strict, carbohydrate-restrictive diet known as the “ketogenic diet” (similar to Atkins or South Beach). This allowed the body to move from using glucose (sugar) as its primary source of fuel and to transition to using fats as its primary source of fuel. Today, we can achieve this state through exogenous (from outside the body) ketone supplementation with Ketoshakes.
WHAT IS THE KETOGENIC DIET?
The ketogenic diet is an extremely low carbohydrate, moderate protein and high fat diet. Atkins and South Beach diets are examples of a ketogenic diet. Every person responds differently, so the amount of carbohydrates consumed can vary from 20g-50g (sometimes less; sometimes more), depending on each individual, in order to maintain a state of ketosis. Due to the diets restrictive nature, it is quite difficult for many people to follow; and, therefore, it is difficult to stay in ketosis long term.
HOW DO I KNOW IF I’M IN KETOSIS?
A simple urine test, 30 minutes after drinking a Ketoshake, will show the elevated ketone levels in the body. You can also take a blood test using a glucometer with ketone strips for the most accurate reading of ketones in your blood.
WHAT’S THE DIFFERENCE BETWEEN DRINKING KETOSHAKES AND TAKING RASPBERRY KETONES?
There is a significant difference between Ketoshakes and raspberry ketones. The name for raspberry ketones is quite misleading, as this is not a ketone supplement and is not related in any way to ketones, the ketogenic diet or nutritional ketosis. Raspberry ketones are natural substances that give raspberries their sweet scent and flavor and, to a lesser degree, blackberries, cranberries and kiwis. Raspberry ketone supplements may increase Adiponectin (a hormone in the body that regulates fat burning and appetite. In contrast, Ketoshakes are a natural, nutritional ketone supplement that provides ketones to facility the body entering a ketosis state.
ARE KETONES AND KETO//OS SAFE?
Ketoshakes are typically quite safe. Ketones naturally exist in the body and are created as a normal process of fat metabolism. Ketoshakes simply provides these ketones from a source outside of your body, but they have the same beneficial impact. However, if you suffer from any medical conditions, it is always safe to consult your healthcare provider prior to starting any new nutritional supplement.
CAN I TAKE TOO MANY KETONES?
It would be very difficult to overdose on ketones. They are water soluble, so excess ketones will be eliminated mainly via the urine.
