Ketone salts AKA Keto//OS were
developed and tested at the University of South Florida in the labs of
Dr.Dominic D’Agostino and have just become widely available in 2016 through
network marketing by Pruvit.
Ketone salts are carefully
formulated and contain the actual ketone betahydroxybutyrate bound to sodium,
calcium and magnesium and can increase ketone levels much higher than coconut
or MCT oil and could bring about even more improvement. Using ketone salts
could be part of the overall strategy to raise ketones, keeping coconut and MCT
oil as the foundation.
Ketone salts are now
widely used by people with a variety of conditions who are reporting positive
responses, including brain fog, memory impairment, sleep problems, low energy,
and conditions caused by inflammation (ketones
are anti-inflammatory in addition to providing alternative fuel to the brain
and other organs). Many people have reported
substantial fat loss, especially when combined with a low carb diet and without
hunger (ketones can suppress appetite and encourage fat loss by reducing
glucose and insulin levels and stimulating fat breakdown). World class athletes and body builders are
using ketone salts to enhance physical performance.
A healthy person could
take a full serving of Pruvit KetoOS or KetoMax right away. For elderly people
or those with chronic medical conditions I recommend getting doctor's approval,
so that electrolytes can be monitored and I suggest starting slowly - 1 or 2
teaspoons once or twice a day and increasing gradually over a week or two as
tolerated to 1/2 to 1 serving daily, or more as tolerated. Also very
important - the person taking the salts needs to be able to drink plenty of
fluids to avoid a dehydrating effect of raising ketones.
The KetoOS 2.1 orange
dream flavor is the ketone betahydroxybutyrate PLUS MCT oil powder with mild oragne
flavor and stevia. Works well in hot or cold drink - tea (cold or hot),
water or sparkling water. I know someone who doesn't like it as a drink
but puts it into Jello!!
The KetoOS 3.0 chocolate
swirl has a light chocolate flavor and contains the ketone betahydroxybutyrate
but NO MCT. It does contain certain amino acids that help maintain muscle
The KetoMax is Hawaiian
punch flavor and is probably the best at elevating ketone levels the highest.
Can be used in cold or hot drinks. It is the more bio-available form of
betahydroxybutyrate called the D-form. Also has no
MCT. KetoMax will be coming out in a “hot cocoa” flavor soon.
KetoKreme is a combination
of coconut and MCT powder (no betahydroxybutyrate) with stevia and cinnamon
that you can put into a warm drink like coffee or tea. I use this one
myself in the morning in coffee and love it.
The most economical way to
buy the ketone salts is a 30 day serving supply in a can which comes with a one
serving scoop. One scoop contains about 8 level teaspoons of the ketone
salt powder, so if someone starts with one or two teaspoons as their serving
the can could potentially last quite a bit longer than a month. For more information you can link through my
