Exogenous Ketone Supplementation vs the Ketogenic Diet
The ketogenic diet is not new, and has been in practice for many years. It involves following a low carbohydrate (5-10%), moderate protein (15%-30%) and high fat (60%-75%) diet. The problem with the ketogenic diet is that many people find it quite restrictive and difficult to follow. This creates a problem for those who want to benefit from elevated ketone levels, especially children. In the past, dietary changes were the only way to bring your body into a state of nutritional ketosis.
However, today, we have access to the first exogenous ketone supplement, KETO//OS. The supplement blends BHB ketones with medium chain fatty acids, providing the body with ketones, without the need to follow a strict ketogenic diet. Studies are finding that supplementation with ketones is superior to the ketogenic diet. Even while following a Standard American Diet (S.A.D.), individuals are still experiencing the benefits of ketones via supplementation. However, it is thought that following a lower carbohydrate diet, not necessarily a strict ketogenic diet, will enhance the benefits of the ketone supplements, as your body becomes even more adept to using the ketones as a source of fuel.
WHAT IS KETO OS?
Keto//OS is ketone supplementation that gives everyday people the benefits of ketosis without the often painful discipline required to be in nutritional ketosis. It is also a tool for people that want to follow a Keto lifestyle while avoiding the symptoms of the Keto flu and accelerating the use of ketones as energy, thus assisting to be Keto-adaptive more efficiently and effectively.
What’s In Keto OS?
KETO//OS is a proprietary, “first of its kind” exogenous ketone delivery drink now available. Rarely does a nutritional based product come along that has the ability to make a measurable and substantial impact on health and wellness. Prüvit’s KETO//OS (Ketone Operating System) is a revolutionary drink mix that is based on a proprietary ketone energy technology that delivers advanced macro nutritionals and promotes optimized cellular regeneration, energy and longevity. Ketones are a high energy product of fat oxidation that 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 and therefore have been limited in their availability as an alternative energy source.
What Does Keto OS Do?
KETO//OS contains a specifically engineered ratio of proprietary ketone mineral salts that provide a high-energy fuel compound without having to incorporate an energy-restricted diet. KETO//OS contains a perfect ratio of ketones for optimal protein synthesis and a high fiber based MCT formulation for sustained nutrient energy and digestive health and cognition. KETO//OS assists in improving the pattern of LDL Cholesterol and increases levels of HDL Cholesterol (good cholesterol). KETO//OS will make you feel more energetic, more focused, more fit and healthier than you ever have. It provides an exceptional nutritional foundation to help people lose weight, feel great and perform your very best.
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. Individuals with high levels of ketones have been able to step away from the main-stream dieting idea that 6-meals per day must be the norm. Due to the increased level of satiety, you just eat when you’re hungry. No more calorie counting or food measuring!! All o this is with significant weight loss benefits.
The improvement in blood sugar levels may also explain why ketones have been shown to benefit type II diabetics and women suffering from polycystic ovarian syndrome.
Energy levels and athletic performance have also shown significant improvement with higher levels of ketones.
Ketones play a role in improved blood flow. They appear to enhance the function of the mitochondria (our energy power house), cause blood vessels to dilate, and lead to improved oxygen capacity, which can enhance athletic performance and improve motor performance.
This is why ketones are often referred to as a “super fuel.”
Ketones are also a powerful antioxidant, they have an anti-catabolic effect and help to preserve and promote muscle mass.
Ketones have also been associated with an increase in branch chain amino acids (BCAA), which play a role in muscle growth.
