What Even Is With This Keto Stuff?
My understanding of Ketosis is, that it is a natural state for the body, when it is almost completely fueled by fat. This can happen during fasting, or effective low carb eating, with the proper balance of protein and fat intake. Now, I am NOT a doctor, nor have i portrayed one on T.V. however since I began studying body building, and fitness during my teenaged years, looking up to my dad who was a competitive body builder, I have long known that the Ketosis Diet was a common practice amongst body builders, primarily weeks prior to a competition, as it was the most effective way to obliterate any remaining percentage of body fat, and get that iconic, vascular physic so desired from the body building culture.
BUT WHAT IS KETOSIS
Ketosis is a metabolic state in which most of the body’s energy supply comes from ketone bodies in the blood, in contrast to a state of glycolysis where blood glucose provides most of the energy. Ketosis is characterized by serum concentrations of ketone bodies over 0.5mmol with low and stable levels of insulin and blood glucose. University research suggests that exogenous ketone supplements can induce ketosis, even when there are normal levels of blood glucose.
Ketosis is in contrast to ketogenesis, or Nutritional Ketosis, which is the production of ketones in the liver through a process by which ketone bodies are produced as a result of fatty acid breakdown. Ketone supplementation essentially substitutes for ketogenesis but only bioavailability of ketones in the blood for cellular use creates ketosis. Nutritional Ketosis usually begins at 0.5 mmol and is optimized between 2.0 mmol and 3.6 mmol. This is what we call THE ZONE.

Want Better ?
Inspired by ketone research through the Department of Defense and Office of the Navy, Pruvit’s Keto//OS Ketone Operating System acts like a 4th macronutrient that delivers superhuman performance fuel to optimize better health, fitness, and wellness.
KETO//OS targets and burns body fat with every serving by positioning your body to follow a proven, accepted, and universal fat-loss formula.
KETO//OS creates a duel fuel energy system that allows ketones and glucose to co-exist inside the body.
KETO//OS provides a cleaner, quicker energy pathway than glucose while providing very important signaling molecules to the body.
Make better food choices
Ketones naturally suppress your appetite
allowing you to make better choices and eat less frequently.
Minimize sugar intake
Ketones don’t require insulin to deliver energy
to your cells the way glucose does, so blood sugar levels are regulated and minimized which helps eliminate carb cravings and crashes.
Protect and preserve muscle
Ketones are extremely anti-catabolic (they
are protein/muscle sparing) and will preserve and protect your lean tissue during periods of caloric restriction. The more muscle you preserve, the more fat you burn.
Ketones offer insulin free energy that maximizes your mindset and mental focus while motivating you to move more, do more, and be more.
Ketones create more ATP (Adenosine
Triphosphate) per unit of oxygen than glucose making workouts more efficient.
Ketones have incredible anti-in ammatory
properties which aid in and improve post- workout recovery.
The Dual Fuel Operating System (Ketones and
Glucose) delays the release of glycogen stores in the muscle. This allows for greater, longer, and stronger performance.
Ketones are known to elicit many healthy
effects by mediating our body’s own protective antioxidant defenses.
Ketones protect our cells from many types of
age-related de ciencies and environmental damage.
The exogenous ketones from KETO//OS can
help maximize endogenous ketone production by the body, leading to improved bio-
markers including, blood sugars, cholesterol, triglycerides, and blood pressure.
