Keto OS is a new health supplement that has hit the market and has people buzzing. It is supposed to accelerate a natural bodily function known as ketosis. Why would people want to accelerate this process? Well, it is believed that ketosis is a key function in burning calories and losing weight.
So the logic is that if you can speed that process up, then you can lose more weight faster. Sounds quite appealing especially for those looking for a fast and easy way to lose weight. But does it work? Is it worth it to buy a product that just speeds up a natural body function? Keep reading to find out.
An Introduction To KETO//OS
Before we delve into whether the Keto OS supplement works, let’s first look at what exactly it even is. KETO//OS is in a powdery form and you take it by stirring it in with water. Once you consume the Keto OS-infused water, it should go to work and speed up the ketosis process.
Now hold on, what exactly is ketosis? It is a natural bodily function in which the body turns fat, rather than carbohydrates, into energy. I am sure you can now imagine why people striving to lose weight would want to speed this process up.
What Makes Up Keto OS?
When determining the effectiveness of a supplement, the first place you will want to look is at the ingredient list. I have reviewed a lot of supplements and the ingredient list is often how you can differentiate between legitimate supplements, potentially dangerous supplements, and just flat out fraudulent supplements.
So how does Keto OS measure up? Let’s take a look.
Ingredients in KETO//OS
- Beta-Hydroxybutyrate (BHB): This is one of the central ingredients in this supplement. The makers of Keto OS say that it is basically what causes ketosis to happen when consumed.
- Powdered MCT: This is a useful ingredient of Keto OS that makes the digestion process slower while also staving off any chance of feeling nauseous after taking Keto OS.
- Natural Flavor: A pretty self-explanatory ingredient here. People like supplements that do not taste bad so natural flavoring is a must.
- Malic Acid: The makers of KETO//OS say that this ingredient helps to give consumers a jolt of energy while also making their muscles more durable during work out sessions.
- Caffeine: This is a common ingredient in weight loss supplements because it has many weight loss properties.
- Stevia: This natural sugar substitute has no calorie content and is a healthy way to add a nice sweet flavor to the supplement. This ingredients goes hand in hand with the aforementioned natural flavor to ensure that you do not have a gag reflex when drinking a glass of water infused with Keto OS.
The Advertised Effects of KETO//OS
According to the makers of Keto OS, this supplement is intended to kickstart your body’s process of ketosis and have it running faster than usual. This is to accelerate the fat burning process and help you lose weight. And since ketosis requires a lot of calories to stay going, you will easily and quickly burn through the calories from that big meal you just ate.
Also according to the makers, it will only take from 15 to 30 minutes for the ketosis process to begin in your body after consuming KETO//OS .
On top of helping you lose weight, KETO//OS is also advertised to help you feel more energetic throughout the day, improve concentration, make you feel better emotionally, and help you sleep better.
To experience just the basic therapeutic effects of Keto OS, the makers suggest taking only a single serving per day. However, for those who want to experience the full benefits of Keto OS, they suggest taking two servings per day. One should be taken with your morning breakfast, and the other with your mid-afternoon snack or early dinner.
The Different Kinds of Keto OS
Pruvit, the makers of KETO//OS, have created various kinds of the Keto OS supplement. Each have modified ingredients and different and/or enhanced effects. Let’s delve into the different Keto OS supplements.
This is the main flagship Pruvit product and it comes in two flavors/versions: Orange Dream (Keto OS version 2.1) and Chocolate Swirl (Keto OS version 3.0). Keto OS 2.1 contains MCT (for that aforementioned jolt of energy) and dairy, whereas Keto OS 3.0 does not have MCT and instead contains the prebiotic digestion booster known as butric acid.
Something cool that Pruvit does is that they also give you the choice of decaffeinated and caffeinated Keto OS, just like coffee. If you seriously want to lose weight and do not have any health conditions that require you to avoid caffeine, I would advise that you go for the caffeinated version.
This product is for those that go hard with their weight loss regimen. It contains all of the same ingredients as Keto OS 3.0, with the exception of butyric acid.
Do not let the omission of butyric acid deter you, though, as Keto OS Max is touted as the most effective ketosis-inducing supplement on the market and far exceeds both Keto OS 2.1 and Keto OS 3.0. Pruvit also touts that Keto OS Max triggers the ketosis process faster and it stays going even longer, which means even more calorie burning.
This is a supplement that you can use as a substitute to your typical coffee creamer. The main component in Keto Kreme is coconut milk fat. According to Pruvit, this fat is incredibly beneficiary to the body, providing such benefits as enhanced concentration, increased energy, and less food temptations throughout the day.
How Does Keto OS Help You Lose Weight?
As I have already mentioned, the Keto OS supplement helps to start and speed up the body’s ketosis process. Once again, this makes your body more efficient at turning fat into energy and thus burning plenty of calories in the process. This means that the food you eat will not contribute to your weight unless it has excessive unhealthy fat content and you are not physically active.
A plus side to that is Keto OS will be making you feel super energetic and you will want to start moving around and get physically active. On top of that, you will feel more full after taking the Keto OS supplement which will make you less likely to snack on unhealthy treats during the day. And obviously, this all results in you losing weight.
Even more amazingly, Keto OS can help lower your risk of developing diabetes. How? Health experts believe that ketosis will restore your blood sugar levels to a healthy balance and make your blood less resistant to insulin.
Side Effects of Taking KETO//OS
As is the case with most supplements, there are some side effects associated with taking KETO//OS. Although unlike a lot of supplements, they are not experienced by most users of the product. After surfing through many customer testimonials, I could only find a few that reported side effects and the effects they described were insignificant and mostly harmless.
Those side effects were:
These effects do not sound very pleasant, but like I said most users do not experience these and there are ways to mitigate these if you do experience them. The testimonials suggest you should take a smaller serving of KETO//OS and drink much more water throughout the day. This will get rid of the dehydration and nausea problem, but probably will not do much to help the urination problem. But that is what happens when you drink a lot of water…
One thing to note is that it may take some time for your body to adjust to the new fat-heavy diet that you will have to start following in order to get the best out of your Keto OS supplementation. I suggest gradually phasing into the diet so that your body can adjusted to the increased fat before you really start ramping it up. Or else you will have to deal with diarrhea and constipation, which are not fun at all.
One more thing to note is that for those who have a hard time consuming salts or get kidney stones a lot should consult their doctor or a trusted health expert before starting their Keto OS supplementation.
The testimonials for KETO//OS are kind of a mixed bag. There are a bunch of people who say that the product helped them lose weight and they sing the praises of Keto OS. And then of course there are the people that did not experience any weight loss and they trash the product. The Keto OS products average about 3 to 3.5 out of 5 stars on Amazon.
KETO//OS Review Summary
After going through the maker’s claims, the ingredient list, the scientific facts, and the consumer testimonials, I can say without a doubt that this is not a fraudulent product. Also, it is not a harmful product (unless you misuse it).
However, the more important question is how effective is KETO//OS as a weight loss supplement. Based on the ingredients and the science, it seems to be quite effective. But, it is to be noted that many people have said that they experienced no weight loss at all.
This may be because they did not change their diet and just continued their regular diet and daily routine and just added the Keto OS to their daily glass of water. And of course you won’t see any change if you just do that.
It is recommended that you complement the KETO//OS supplementation with a total overhaul of your diet. Switch to a healthy fat-heavy and low-carbohydrate diet and then you are making full use of the fat burning effects of the ketosis process that KETO//OS induces. Increasing the amount of physical activity you exert will help in spades as well.
My bottom line is that if you are serious about losing weight, building muscle, and increasing your concentration, you should at least consider KETO//OS. It is a well-made product that has worked for many people.
