  • Other Ingredients: Erythritol, Citric Acid, Natural Flavor, Rebaudioside A (Stevia extract), Vegetable Juice Color, Xanthum Gum, Beta Carotene, Caffeine (if Charged version, Decaf available).
  • Caffeine equivalent to a 16 oz coffee.

Supplement Facts – 

  • Calories: 45
  • Total Carbs 5 g
  • Sugar alcohol 4 g
  • Net carbs 1 g
  • Vitamin B6 294%, Vitamin B12 4167%, Calcium 270 mg, Sodium 910 mg

What is C-Med 100?

Pruvit ketones have been advancing for some time and the additional of AC-11 in the new Keto Max and Keto Kreme formulas was one such advancement.

C-Med 100 is the new trade name for the AC-11 DNA repair (Inner Bar of Uncaria Tomentosa) and Keto NAT contains a proprietary amount of C-Med 100.

The Keto Reboot Kit also contains AC-11 within its Signal OS pills.


What is R-Beta Hydroxybutyrate

Beta Hydroxybutyrate (BHB) is the ketone body found in exogenous ketone supplements which are typically bound to salts and minerals. Pruvit’s Keto OS, Keto MAX and Keto NAT formulas are all a bit different. (What are the effects of BHB? Link to study)

Pruvit’s Keto OS formula uses a racemic blend of ketone salts using both the D+L isomers.

Keto Max uses only the D isomer which is bioidentical to the ketone bodies your liver makes. This is one reason why Keto Max is a stronger formula (roughly 40% stronger than the OS). It has a quicker uptake, quicker spike and is more rapidly absorbed.

What we know at this time is the new Keto NAT formula is more bioavailable than Keto Max so theoretically it should provide a stronger effect i.e. more energy, better appetite control, and better performance.


Keto NAT vs Keto Max

I finally got a chance to try both flavors of Keto NAT! To me, both flavors have the same great taste, but it did give me more energy, more intense focus and I wasn’t as hungry.  I love these benefits!

I’m excited for this “cleaner” formula and can’t wait until Keto NAT Key Limeade comes out!


When Will Keto NAT be for Sale

Keto NAT Raspberry Lemonade and Keto NAT Splash are now mainstay Pruvit flavors!

Max will eventually be phased out to be all Keto NAT formula.

Keto Reboot Excel Kit – What is it?

Pruvit’s Keto Reboot Excel kit was first released and available for a limited time in early December. The Keto Reboot Excel contains the standard Keto Reboot 60 Hour Fast plus all the supplements you need to PREBOOT, and OPTIMIZE your progress for 30 days.

The main reason to do the Keto Reboot is to reset your metabolism by reprogramming your genes to run on fat for fuel!

By conquering a 60 hour fast, you engage your body to use fat as an energy source while gradually shifting into Keto Adaptation.

THIS is what we’re all looking for right? To burn that fat off our love handles and middle sections!

Well, you have to sacrifice something to get those stubborn areas burning – and forgoing food for 60 hours utilizing the Keto Reboot kit has become a very popular way to get things moving!

Why do the Keto Reboot 60 Hour Fast?

If you answer YES to any of these questions, the Keto Reboot 60 Hour Fast is a great program to try!

  • Do you need a jump start with FAT LOSS?
  • Have you hit a plateau? 
  • Do you experience hunger and cravings? 
  • Are you addicted to sugar?
  • Could you use some help with your next fast or cleanse?

Preboot Before the Keto Reboot!

We love to coin phrases, and “getting your PREBOOT on” is not just a Pruver-ism, but a very wise decision!

Why? Quite simply: KETO ADAPTATION – getting your body used to exogenous ketones and being in a state of ketosis. 

By getting started on Pruvit’s products before you jump headfirst into the 60 hour Keto Reboot, you’ll give your body a chance to slowly Keto adapt and complete some shorter intermittent fasting days leading up to the 60 hour fast.

This is why the Keto Reboot Excel kit was created – to help those just getting started to get ready for the reboot, to conquer the reboot, and to continue to optimize your hard-earned results!

If you’re used to eating a high carb/high sugar diet, you may have more unwanted detox side effects (headaches, etc) than you anticipated if you don’t “prime the pump” before completing the reboot.

This is an investment in your health, not a quick fix – there is no such thing when it comes to health. Without priming and optimizing – the only other place to go is back to bad habits. This is true for any long term health strategy.


What’s in the Keto Reboot Excel Package?

Supplements:

Coaching:

  • 2x Hacked Magazines
  • Digital Excel to Optimization Fud Guide ($67)
  • Digital Excel to Optimization Muv Guide ($67
  • Excel to Optimmization Hacks (Exclusive to this kit)
  • 2x Virtual coaching tips per week via email (priceless)
  • Laser Coaching Zooms with Dr. Ryan Lowery ($1,000)

Post 60 Hour Fast – OPTIMIZE

The Keto Reboot Excel program is a great way to complete the Keto Reboot 60 hour fast PLUS continue to optimize your results post reboot for an entire month, and it comes with coaching.

Having the proper guidance and nutritional supplements for fasting and cleansing your body makes it easier and more effective, plain and simple.

When I say “optimize” I don’t mean continue fasting with no food for 30 days! Let me explain…once you’ve prebooted and completed the 60 hour fast, you break your fast and begin to eat again.

However, the goal is to stay in a fat burning state of ketosis, and the supplements provided in the Keto Reboot Excel kit make it easy and enjoyable to do so.

Having a selection of Keto Kreme to make fat coffee, Keto Max for energy and fuel source to crush appetite, and Better Broth as a meal or snack will keep those ketone levels high and KEEP YOU IN KETOSIS.

My Pruvit Journey – Please Read Before you Leave

I’ve been drinking ketones daily for 1 1/2 years and honestly can’t imagine life without them! I’m very passionate about this conversation and enjoy sharing it with others.

For me, drinking ketones daily gives me energy throughout the day without crashing, keeps me fueled and motivated to workout, lifts my mood, and keep my cravings under control ( I use to drink so much diet soda and since drinking ketones and keto kreme even my snacking has been under control). 

When I first started, I lost 8 lbs my first few months, settled into a happy weight and I’ve kept it off for the most part. But I’m human, and like everyone else – sometimes I get off track! :-p

This is where the Keto Reboot 60 hour fast is very helpful for me. It gives me that reset that I need to get back to burning that fat for fuel and eliminate belly bloat!

There’s no better time to get started towards a healthy goal.

Keto//os vs. Ketones

Here is the first post of a few Pruvit related posts. Any pruvit posts are affiliated but I DO NOT make a commission If you click the link or buy anything.  All opinions in today’s post are my own. If you are looking to get into Ketones or you want to know to learn more about The Ketogenic Diet you can reach the person who I buy my ketones and reboot through here Pruvit Promoter Katherine S.

Did You Know?

That one serving of Keto OS elevates your ketone levels and puts you into ketosis.  The skinny is – you help your body burn fat rather than glucose (carbs/sugar). It suppresses appetite and is a great tool for Intermittent FastingWhat I love most about drinking ketones is how they make me feel – good and with sustained energy throughout the day, focused, and much better workouts!

Want To Visit The Pruvit Website?

Ketones Vs. Ketogenic Diet

The Ketogenic Diet will also put your body into ketosis, however, it’s very strict – less than 20 grams of carbs per day. To put that in perspective – one cup of rice has about 48 grams of carbs. But what if you don’t want to follow a super strict “diet” but you still want the benefits of being in ketosis?

Or what if you want to make your transition to a low-carb or ketogenic “diet” a lot easier?

 Please Keep On Reading!

This is where Keto//OS sets itself apart from every other supplement on the market and I’ll explain it this Keto OS review. 

Here are some of the benefits of drinking therapeutic ketones:

Sustained energy, Increased focus, Suppressed appetite, Better mood, Better sleep, Muscle preservation, Clear skin, Fat loss.

Keto OS Results – My First Time

I’ve had two rounds of experience drinking Keto//os, but the first time my commitment wasn’t there if I am being totally honest (my lifestyle/“diet” was since I’m being honest it was complete shit).

The first time I started drinking Keto//os (Raspberry Lemonade) was in December. 2017 and it helped me to eat healthier and get some fat loss going.  I lost about 8lbs in six weeks!

This was huge for me since the prior year I’d gained a little extra pouch through the holidays. I LOVE CAKE!!!!

I couldn’t seem to get any fat loss going. I’ll be honest I was putting my body through hell. I had food allergies and food Intolerances that I had no Idea about. And to top it all off I was going back and forth between vegan, gluten-free, and vegetarian. Now I am gluten-free (because I gotta be) and I am vegetarian because with all the food allergies and Intolerances It just makes sense for me and my body. However, after starting the ketones I noticed my clothes started to fit better and I wasn’t as hungry. 

Like many ( I am no exception) with any lifestyle change we get excited about starting, I got complacent after a while. I got out of the habit of drinking Keto//os, and I started eating badly again! (Sorry Body)!

Keto Max Results – Committed to Ketones!

Round #2 with Keto//os It Was Now Or Never!

I joined beachbody on demand and I started doing  HIIT training – light running, yoga, and light weights) and I do that 2x per week and take Saturday and Sunday off.

I also ate a strict ketogenic diet (vegetarian) the first couple of weeks getting back on the ketones which helped a lot to get my body burning fat for fuel. But after a while, I just didn’t feel like following a strict Keto diet was for me, so I added back some carbs on my workout days and non-workout days.

Now I do a lot of Intermittent Fasting, and Intuitive Eating and I eat good “most of the time.”

Since being back on ketones, I have my energy back, my mood is lifted, my skin is clear, and I’m a LOT more focused and productive in life. 

Why Am I Writing About Pruvit Keto OS?

I originally set out to review Keto OS because before I tried it, my sister did and she had great results! She got me hooked, thanks sister! 

Drinking Keto//os gave her energy and helped suppress her appetite so she was able to make better food choices and get to those workouts in which all contributed to her body changes. She lost a lot of weight!

So what is Keto OS and how does this first-of-its-kind supplement put your body into ketosis?

What results can you expect with Keto OS? And does Keto OS have side effects? Keep reading my Keto OS review!

What is Prüvit Keto OS and How Does It Work?

Prüvit’s KETO//OS “Bio-hacks” your body into ketosis in under an hour.

Keto OS contains a patented formula of the highest quality ketone mineral salts (BHB -Betahydroxybutyrate) in a blend of amino acids and minerals.

Normally, ketones are only produced in the body during periods of fasting, but when’s the last time you fasted, or even at less than 20 grams of carbs in a day? Gave up pizza, bread, cakes, or even alcohol?😉

 

In fact, you can pee on a ketone test strip 45-60 minutes after you drink it to “pruvit.” These are available at drug stores.

However, don’t get too hung on on peeing on stuff, blood ketone tests are far more accurate than urine strips but they’ll give you an idea when you’re first getting started. Once you’re in ketosis for a while, your body will start to utilize the ketone bodies more efficiently. 

What is Ketosis? It’s Our Native State

 

Ketosis is our native state – when we were hunter-gatherers, we would go into ketosis and burn fat (instead of muscle) until we found our next meal. Our bodies thrive going in and out of ketosis!

Do You Have to Eat a Special Diet?Ketogenic diet

Many people ask me how to take Keto OS, and this is my recommendation:

  • Drink 1-2 servings of Keto OS per day and a new diet will follow naturally – because you won’t be as hungry and your carb and sugar cravings will be squashed!
  • Use the MCT or Keto Kreme in your coffee in the mornings, and a Keto Max in the afternoon(this is my current schedule)

Will you burn more fat if you eat a low carb or Keto diet?  YES, of course! At least go low carb if you’re looking for fat loss!

What Does Keto OS Taste Like?

Keto OS Orange Dream 2.1

 

Keto OS Orange Dream 2.1 tastes like a creamscicle and contains MCT.

Pruvit brought their exogenous ketones to the market place using Dr. Dominic D’Agostino’s patented formula of ketones + MCT (medium chain triglycerides, which is fat extracted from coconut).

MCT allows the ketones to have a more “slow release” and can give an edge to appetite suppression and help keep you feeling full.

The Orange contains a bit of milk powder to bind the MCT to the ketone body (it’s gluten free and Kosher certified, but not dairy free or vegan). 

Keto OS Chocolate Swirl 3.0

Keto OS Chocolate Swirl 3.0 tastes like a tootsie roll and is delicious mixed with iced coffee and heavy whipping cream!

Chocolate Swirl is unique since it’s the only Pruvit flavor that contains a prebiotic which can help with digestion. 

It’s also Vegan, Dairy-free and gluten-free.

Keto Max Maui Punch

 

Keto Max Maui Punch tastes just like a fruity punch!

What’s different about the Max flavors?

Max salts are a bit different from the OS salts. Max contains the most pure, most bio-available form of ketones, meaning your body can more easily absorb it so there’s a faster uptake, quicker peak, and provides more energy – Max is 40% stronger.

All Keto Max flavors are gluten-free, dairy-free and Kosher Certified and contain CMed 100 (AC-11) for DNA repair.

Keto OS Max Raspberry Lemonade

 

Keto Max Raspberry Lemonade is so refreshing and tastes great with a squeeze of fresh lemon!

It’s the perfect mix of sweet and tart! I never seem to get tired of Raspberry Lemonade (even though it does have a bit of a salty after taste).

Keto Max Heart Tart

 

Keto Max Heart Tart was a Valentine’s Day exclusive, but since everyone loved it SO much, it’s now on the permanent menu!

Heart Tart reminds me of strawberry jello or a strawberry sweet-tart, it’s DELICIOUS!

Keto Max Splash

 

Keto Max Splash is a light, citrusy, watermelon-grapefruit fusion!

This new flavor contains AC-11 DNA repair and added B3, B6 and B12 Vitamins.

I love the Splash, I am low on Vitamin B so it gives me an added boost of energy and it’s very light and refreshing.

Keto Kreme with Functional Fat Technology (FFT™)

 

Keto Kreme is a fat supplement powder you mix with your coffee or tea that’s great for boosting fat loss, an energy and brain boost, and is very filling and yummy!

How to use:  FAST on the Keto Kreme until you get hungry, then drink a Keto OS or Keto Max, then when you get hungry (lunch time or later) eat a low carb/high fat meal. Super burn!

Or: Drink half hour before dinner (I love it with mixed with decaf tea) to help fill you up before dinner.

What’s in Keto Kreme?

  • Healthy serving of fat (12 grams) made from coconut oil, MCT Powder (Medium Chain Triglycerides) and sweetened with stevia.
  • Four different patented collagen formulas, new “Functional Fat Technology” *FFT
  • Collagen, which benefits: hair, skin, nails
  • Can even mix with just water and ice as a shake
  • CMed 100 (AC-11) for DNA Repair

Keto Reboot 60 Hour Fast

Pruvit’s new is becoming a very popular way to reset your metabolism for a full body reset. A lot of changes can be made in 60 hours and bad habits broken.

The Keto Reboot was an AMAZING experience, and I’ve done it several times! Some people do it monthly! Keto Reboot is a 60 hour fast (no food) using Keto Max, Keto Kalm Tea, Keto Broth, and Signal-OS capsules for DNA repair.

 

Keto OS Blue Ocean Unleashed

 

If you like Pina coladas….

If you want to try Pruvit’s strongest product, Blue Ocean is amazing! THIS is the flavor I drink for those days where I have a lot of work to focus on, or a tough workout.

Amped ketones are magical, and Blue Ocean tastes like a pina colada!

Pruvit’s Special Flavors

Keto OS White Midnight Unleashed

White midnight samples for sale

Pruvit released their “Mystery Max” Amped Midnight in early December.

This is a black cherry vanilla flavor and is “AMPED” like the Blue Ocean, contains AC-11, and its original release was purple (almost black in color) and is delicious!

They took the beet powder out so now it’s “White Midnight.”

Keto Max Envy (During St. Patty’s Day)

This St. Patty’s Day exclusive flavor tastes just like mint chocolate – GREEN ketones!

My favorite way to drink Keto Envy is to mix it with Swiss Cacao and whip up in a blender with ice, water and a little heavy whipping cream.

NOW we’re talking chocolatey mint cookie flavor! Which I love because I love chocolate and mint.

There are more new flavors such as Purple Reign (grape), Keto Jellies (jellybean), Key Limeade (awesome new lemon/lime flavor) and the new Harvest Sunrise.

Does Keto OS Have Any Side Effects?

Like any supplement, not everyone will have the same exact experience. If you’re sensitive to caffeine and drink the Charged version late in the day, then you may have trouble falling asleep, just like coffee may keep you up.

Some people report an upset stomach when they are adjusting to the Orange flavor (since it contains the MCT oils), and this is the reason to start with half a pack for at least a few days, or longer if necessary.

How I Feel Drinking Daily Ketones

I’ve been sailing through each day no longer experiencing those slumps of energy like I used to. And I’m not relying on coffee as much these days. No more brain fog, and no more afternoon coffee. Much more focused!

I’ve also been powering through my workouts at the gym and pushing myself whereas before I might just stop when it got too tough.

It gives me energy to get my butt to the gym when I would sometimes blow it off….you know how that goes. Half the battle is getting there!

What Are Ketones?

Ladies and gents today I bring you a post all about ketones. I dig deep. What are ketones? How do we produce ketones? And finally what are ketones used for? This post Is 1 of 2 ketones related content. I want to the difference between ketones we produce naturally and keto//os. If you follow me on my Instagram (link in the where you can follow me section). You would see in my stories that I have been trying out some keto products pruvit products. Those products are through keto pruvit website and I did buy it through a distributor. Today’s post Is the start of (kinda) many keto posts. They won’t all come at once I will put them out over the next few weeks.

If you are interested in learning more about ketones and keto/os or just the ketogenic lifestyle you can reach the person that I buy It through here katherineannshopketo.com

What Are Ketones and Are They Healthy? 

If you are up on your health news or follow anyone in the health field, you have likely heard the term ketogenic diet. The goal of the ketogenic diet is to adapt the body to utilize fat as its primary fuel source instead of sugar. The body does this by first converting fat into what are called ketones that the cells can then burn as fuel. It is at this point that I typically get asked, what are ketones?

 

 

Biological Role of Ketones 

For our ancestors, eating three meals a day just wasn’t a thing. Instead they would hunt and forage for the foods they could find. When there wasn’t food, they wouldn’t eat.

What this means is that sometimes they would go for days at a time with no food. To sustain life during times of scarcity, the body is thought to have developed the ability to utilize fat as an alternative fuel source.

In a traditional nutrition course, you would learn that sugar is the body’s primary fuel source while fat is a secondary fuel source. When sugar stores are burned up, the cells then convert to burning fat as an energy source.  What we are finding out now is that fat can actually be a healthier and more sustainable source of energy.

 

Our Society Is Full of Sugar Burners 

Modern day, we have an abundance of food that is available to us at all times. Most of us regularly eat three meals a day with intermittent snacking in between.

This kind of frequent eating, along with an overemphasis on carb-rich and sugary foods, causes a reduced ability to burn fat. As these foods damage our bodies on a metabolic level, we actually lose the ability to produce ketones.

This type of reliance on sugar creates massive blood sugar spikes, inflammation, hormone imbalance, and ultimately many of the chronic diseases that plague our society today.  Luckily, by adopting a more ketogenic style of eating, we can reverse this damage and revert back to the efficient fat-burning machines we were meant to be!

 

The Advantage of Ketones 

The energy currency of the body comes in the form of Adenosine Triphosphate (ATP). The mitochondria within every cell in the body either metabolize glucose or ketones to form this important energy molecule.

Based on what we understand of cellular energy metabolism, ketones are able to create much greater amounts of energy per molecule than glucose.   This means when the body begins to convert fat into ketones, you actually have a much more stable and sustainable energy source. 

At the same time, burning fat does not create the same insulin and blood sugar response that burning sugar does. This is part of the profound benefits of being in ketosis including, improved hormone balance, lowered inflammation, and improved brain health.

Likewise, many people report feeling much more stable when they go into ketosis. Feeling less hungry, gaining control over cravings, and often experiencing a much more stable emotional state.

 

How The Body Gets Into Ketosis 

As I mentioned already, the body will either burn sugar or fat for energy. Sugar is converted into glucose while fats are converted into ketones by the liver.  When blood sugar drops and glycogen stores are burned up, the body begins to convert fat into ketones for energy.

As we continue to learn more about the benefits of ketones, people are intentionally putting themselves into this state for therapeutic benefits as well as a heightened state of mental performance.

There are several ways to promote an increase in ketone bodies, as mentioned below. The general strategy is to supply the body with ample fats while depleting blood glucose to signal the metabolic shift towards fat-burning.

 

Types Of Ketones

Unlike the simple conversion of sugar into glucose, fatty acid metabolism actually results in 3 different types of ketones:

Acetate (Acetone)

Acetoacetate (AcAc)

Beta Hydroxybutyrate (BHB)

BHB, based on its molecular structure, is not really a ketone. Yet its presence is part of the beneficial effects of being in ketosis. Among its benefits is the ability to modulate BDNF in the brain and stimulate the growth of new neural tissue exercise.

AcAc is the primary ketone body and is either converted into energy or BHB.  Acetone exhibits the least metabolic effect and is mostly broken down and excreted through the breath and urine.  The acetone excreted through the breath is actually responsible for the “keto breath” that some people experience in the beginning stages of keto-adaptation.

 

Measuring Your Ketone Levels 

When the body produces ketones, some are used for energy while the rest are circulated or excreted. Because of this, ketones are measurable in the blood, the saliva, and the breath.

Different ketones are measurable as follows:

BHB: In the blood

Acetone: In the breath

AcAc: In the urine

Although ketones can be measured in different ways, not all of them are quite an accurate representation of the body’s true ketogenic state. This is why most experts rely on the measurement of BHB through the blood as the ideal method.

Although this sounds invasive, new technology has actually made performing ketone measurements at home fairly simple and cheap.

 Blood Measurement 

As I said already, blood measurement for BHB is considered the most accurate depiction of the ketogenic state. This is performed in a similar fashion to blood sugar testing.

Many of the blood glucose monitors on the market also have the ability to read blood ketones. Using a different type of testing strip, all you have to do is prick your finger, collect a small sample of blood, and place it into the monitor for a quick ketone measurement.

The monitor I usually recommend is this Precision Xtra monitor.

The ranges you are looking for here are as follows:

Very Low Ketone Levels:  Less than 0.5 mmol/L

Mild Ketosis:  0.6-1.5 mmol/L

Optimal Ketosis:  1.6-3.0 mmol/L

Very High Ketone Levels:  Greater than 3.0 mmol/L

Although mild ketosis can be achieved rather quickly, it can take up to 2-3 weeks to enter an optimized ketogenic state. The only downside with blood ketone measurement is that the testing strips generally run for about $4 per strip. To perform daily ketone measurements using this method you would be looking at around $120 per month on just testing strips!

 

 Breath Measurement 

For a ketone measurement that doesn’t require a blood draw or the recurring expense of test strips, breath ketones are also a reliable measurement (Breath Acetone).

Using a device such as this Ketonix breath analyzer, you can perform a simple ketone measurement anytime you need.  Although this device will run you for about $190, over time it will likely be a more economical option compared to blood testing since it is only a one-time fee.

It is important to note that while breath ketone measurement is mostly reliable, factors such as alcohol and water consumption may influence your measurements. Luckily you can take multiple measurements throughout the day to get a better idea of your average ketone levels.

Using the Ketonix breath ketones measurement, the device will light up different colors depending on your state of ketosis. Based on the chart below you would want to be in the yellow or red zone for optimal nutritional ketosis.

 

 Urine Measurement 

The body releases unused acetoacetate through the urine upon which it can then be measured using special testing strips. This is a simple option that is also very cost effective at about $10 per 100 strips.

Although simple and cheap, urine measurement of ketones can be somewhat unreliable. This measurement will allow you to see if your body is producing ketones, it doesn’t necessarily provide any insight into how well your body is utilizing ketones for energy.

Additionally, urine ketone measurements can vary significantly depending on the individual’s hydration levels. For example, dehydration will make ketone levels appear higher, while overhydration will make them appear lower.

During the beginning phases of keto-adaptation, the body has a poor ability to utilize ketones as energy. Even if the body is producing ketones, most of them will be excreted. Once the body becomes keto-adapted, higher amounts of ketones are used as energy and less are excreted naturally.

So if you were to choose urine measurement for ketone analysis, I would recommend measuring daily from the very beginning of your eating plan. You should notice an initial increase in ketones into the high range followed by a gradual decrease as you become keto-adapted.

Although your ketones will be high, you will actually be hypoglycemic until your body learns to utilize ketones effectively. As you become keto-adapted you should look for a drop in urine ketone levels between 2-3 weeks of eating a ketogenic style diet.

This drop in urine ketone levels lets you know that your body is becoming more efficient at actually using them for energy.

 

 Ketoacidosis 

The state of nutritional ketosis is sometimes confused with a state referred to as ketoacidosis. Ketoacidosis is an extreme ketotic state that occurs mostly in diabetes populations. When an individual is unable to produce insulin, sugar cannot get into the cells. As a response, the body drastically upregulates ketone production.

In this state, there is both an extremely elevated blood sugar and blood ketone level simultaneously (4). This will cause the overall pH of the body to drop to a dangerously acidic level which can be fatal.  While this condition can be harmful for the individual, it is important to note that entering this state is actually very rare.

To put this into perspective, this condition mainly occurs in unmanaged diabetics. In this state, ketone levels will reach 20 mmol/L and beyond. An otherwise healthy individual could water fast for 20 days and still maintain a ketone concentration below 20 mmol/L.

In other words, unless you are diabetic, reaching a state of ketoacidosis through diet alone is virtually impossible.

 

My Thoughts

Ketones are the body’s alternative fuel source to sugar. Derived from fatty acids, they provide a much more long-lasting and stable production of energy. In addition to providing stable energy, ketones also do not promote the inflammatory rise and fall of insulin as does sugar.

Modern dietary habits have altered our metabolism and made sugar our primary fuel source. By following a ketogenic style of eating, it is possible to reverse these metabolic defects and take advantage of the benefits that ketones have to offer for our brains and bodies!

Keto Reboot + What To Expect (Update)

Disclaimer: These statements have not been evaluated by the Food and Drug Administration. Prüvit products are not intended to diagnose prevent treat or cure any disease. If you are under medical supervision for any allergy, disease, taking prescription medications or you are breastfeeding contact your medical provider before adding any new supplements to your daily regimen.

If you’ve been with me for a while (at least a year) You would remember I did a 60hr fast and I tracked my progress (kinda).

In this Keto Reboot review, I’m going to tell you all about my experience so you can educate yourself and decide if it’s right for you. If you’d like to learn more about incorporating Ketones into your daily life. I’ve been drinking them 1 1/2 years.

Keto Reboot Review

When is the Next Keto Reboot?

Pruvit hosts the Keto Reboot on a monthly basis, and the next group start is February 10th, 2019. If you want to join the next reboot you have to wait 13 days for them to go on sale ( they usually sell out fast and you can only get the reboot kit right before the next reboot starts). And when they do go on sale they sell out fast. You can Click Here to get your reboot kit.

Keto Reboot Kit – What’s in it and what is the Goal?

Pruvit’s Keto Reboot is a kit that sells for $79 made up of various exogenous ketone powders you mix with water to make drinks or teas. This is a 60 hour “fast” or “cleanse” and all you need to complete the reboot is in the kit.

The goal of this 60 Hour Keto Kleanse is to reboot your system back to its “N8tive” state and get your metabolism reset and fired up! Whether you want more energy, to get in shape, eat a healthier “diet”, or simply want to feel better, the reboot will give you the optimal reset you need to get on track.

The Keto Reboot and Optimization post reboot is designed to keep your fat burning potential at its peak! There are no artificial colors or sweeteners in Pruvit products, and everything in the Keto Reboot kit is gluten-free, sugar-free and dairy free. The only product that’s not vegan is the Better Broths (bone broths).

What’s in the Keto Reboot Kit?

  • 2 Raspberry Lemonade Keto Max Charged
  • 2 Raspberry Lemonade Keto Max Decaf
  • 2 Caramel Apple Keto Kalm Teas
  • 1 Chocolate Keto Kalm Tea
  • 2 Better Broth Thyme flavor
  • 2 Better Broth Salted Caramel
  • 10 Signal-OS capsules (DNA repair)

What else do you need to complete the Keto Reboot?

  • Water, and lots of it. Pruvit recommends 1 gallon a day during the reboot
  • And of course your desire and commitment to better health!
  • My opinion is that you should have some Ketones on hand post reboot to optimize (optional)
  • If you made it this far I know you must be curious about getting rid of the bloat and some excess weight? Why not click this link to start on the road to better health.

Who Would Benefit from the Keto Reboot?

Anyone, male or female of any age, would benefit from this metabolic reset, so long as your at least 18 years of age and not pregnant or nursing.

Many people have asked me, why would you not want to eat for 60 hours? Are you nuts? Not nuts, but I’m into health and wellness, and I’ve done plenty of different fasts before and I know they are of great benefit to your health.

When you have a virus on your computer, what do you do? Reboot it right? Well, your body is the same, and it’s the most important computer you own!

The Keto Reboot was the easiest, and most effective cleanse I’ve ever done! And that is why It’s the only one I continue to do!

Keto Reboot Schedule

Keto Reboot products

The schedule and timing of drinking your Keto Kalm Tea, Keto Max, Keto Broth and Signal-OS is easy.

You can also adjust it to your schedule no problem! I happen to be on a very late schedule so I pushed everything back three hours.

It always starts on a Sunday night and ends on a Wednesday morning when you wake up to break your fast. People often ask me why it starts on a Sunday night and the reason is compliance. Generally, people cheat on the weekends.

Keto Reboot Instructions

Keto Reboot Day 1 – Sunday Night

Keto Reboot keto kalm tea

The Keto Reboot always kicks off on a Sunday night and that’s when you drink your first Chocolate Keto Kalm Tea, easy peasy.

Keto Kalm Tea contains ketones (BHB), magnesium, L-theonine, and other ingredients to help you relax and promote restful sleep.

It tastes really good and is sweetened with Stevia. Think hot chocolate more than a tea…it’s a powder you mix with warm water.

The Signal-OS is packed full of AC-11 for DNA repair and high levels of Vitamin B.

Note: they’ve optimized the reboot instructions so you don’t take the Signal OS your first night anymore, rather the morning you break your fast. 

It’s best to eat a light meal Sunday night. Don’t go binging on pizza and cookies before fasting, instead eat a sensible meal, preferably one lower in carbs.

Get a good night’s rest Sunday night, as Monday will be your first full day without food.

Don’t panic at the thought of this…ketones are a fuel source and provide energy. They are also filling and suppress your appetite. This is why you feel so good during the reboot!

Keto Reboot Day 2 – Monday

Keto Reboot schedule

When Monday arrives, you wake up and drink a Raspberry Lemonade Keto Max which tastes just like a country lemonade.

Making it is simple, you just add 12-16 oz of water and ice and shake, shake, shake!

Keto Max flavors are a mainstay of Pruvit’s line up, and the only ketones on the market bioidentical to the ketones your liver makes naturally. I drink Keto Max on a daily basis and it comes in many flavors.

If you have other Keto Max flavors on hand, or Keto Amped  (not a pruvit product I got mine through Amazon).you can drink any of these in place of the Raspberry lemonade if you prefer! I drank the Keto Max Heart Tart to switch things up!

A couple of hours after drinking your Keto Max, you take your Signal-OS capsules. During my experience during the reboot, some people preferred taking their Signal-OS with the broth, which is perfectly fine.

Lunchtime consists of Keto Thyme Better Broth which contains 7 grams of protein (it’s real bone broth with ketones). I’ll be honest it’s good when made into a slush. I took ice cubes and blended the bone broth and ice cubes together and made it into a slush.

Afternoon you drink a decaf Raspberry Lemonade and then dinner is the Better Broth Salted Caramel, which tastes just like caramel popcorn!

While I drank my Better Broth Salted Caramel with warm water as directed (not boiling), some people really enjoyed drinking it cold with ice. It doesn’t make a difference. It’s on the sweet side so diluting with more water is fine to suit your taste.

I also had no problem taking my Signal-OS separate from the broth, I followed the Keto Reboot instructions to a “T.”

Your last drink of the day on Day 2 is the Keto Kalm Tea Caramel Apple flavor, which is a bit sweet for my liking but easily drinkable.

Pruvit does a great job with their flavors but remember, ketone salts are just that…BHB salts (beta-hydroxybutyrate)…. so masking the salts is necessary. If you don’t like the taste, suck it up and know it’s all worth it!!

Don’t forget – drink LOTS of water during your reboot! It’s very important. You’re detoxing and you need to give the toxins a way out, or you could wind up with headaches or other unwanted side effects.

If you do get a headache, up your water intake and add a pinch of Himalayan salt to increase your electrolytes.

Keto Reboot Day 2 – How I Felt

I am used to intermittent fasting….every day I start my day with coffee and Pruvit’s MCT//143 oil and then drink Keto Max a couple hours later. I usually don’t eat my first meal until about 2:00pm. So how did I feel on Day 2? Pretty awesome! I wasn’t hungry at all.

They recommend depleting your glycogen stores on Day 2 to shift your body into ketosis more quickly. This isn’t the day to break any personal records at the gym, just doing a light workout is good, just do something! If you don’t feel up to working out It is okay to skip the gym. Remember you aren’t intaking that many calories.

It was also the evening of Day 2 that I starting really detoxing and making frequent trips to the bathroom. Yes, you’re gonna poop…this is a CLEANSE. You’re emptying the tank! I think I went about 6x.

It’s not a big deal and it’s not uncontrollable. You feel it coming on and you go to the bathroom. Some people are hesitant to do this while they’re at work but don’t be! You’ll be fine.

Some people didn’t have this happen until day 2, or even day 3. I guess it depends how backed up you are and how regular you are normally.

I think for some people, day 2 may be the hardest, especially if you’ve never done a cleanse before. So if you can just get through day 2, you’ll be fine come day 3.

By Day 3, you’ll be burning your love handles for fuel and you will feel a metabolic “shift.” You will be in a deep state of ketosis! 

Keto Reboot Day 3 – Tuesday

Keto Reboot review

Day 3 of the Keto Reboot is your second full day of not eating, and is a repeat of Day 2’s schedule so I won’t rehash it, but I will tell you how I felt as I was using my own fat for fuel!

Keto Reboot Day 3 – How I Felt

I wasn’t hungry at all by day 3. By this time, you’re in a deep state of ketosis and you’re body is tapping into its fat stores for fuel.  This is what they mean by a “metabolic shift.”

I did go on a walk, but only lapped my block in case I needed to go to the bathroom, which I didn’t until later that night. For me, it was always the dinner time broth that kicked that part in. Everyone’s different.

I didn’t experience ANY hunger “pangs” or pains.

But the ketones in all the products really do keep you feeling full and your hunger suppressed. Once you do start to feel a little hunger, it’s time for your next drink.

Even though I wasn’t feeling physically hungry, come evening time there was the thought of food…and being so accustomed to eating at certain times.

This is also why the reboot can really help break bad habits when it comes to food and snacking! Fasting is very empowering!

Testing your Ketone Levels

 

Post reboot I tested my ketone levels on a Keto strip and it was super dark! By this point, my liver was breaking down fat into ketone bodies and being used for energy!

By the way, don’t get too hung on peeing on stuff, blood ketone tests are far more accurate than urine strips but they’ll give you an idea. 

The Keto Mojo is a good one if you’re looking for a blood ketone/glucose meter and they offer free shipping.

Keto Reboot – Breaking the Fast

When my 60-hour reboot was complete, I woke up and I wasn’t hungry at all, but I felt a little weak so I knew I was ready to eat something. I actually went about 65 hours before breaking my fast.

It’s recommended you break your fast with some bone broth (any brand) and some scrambled eggs. I just opted for a couple scrambled eggs in butter.

Eat light the remainder of this day…. your digestion has been resting, your stomach shrank, and you won’t feel as hungry.

Keto Reboot Results – Reboot #1

So let’s face it, some of you will want to do this fast to kick start your fat loss! Who are we kidding? My main goal of the reboot was for ABS. I did lose 5 lbs and my stomach was FLAT and I felt amazing! I said goodbye to all the bloat and I had crazy amounts of natural energy.

Sidenote: Results may vary. Not everyone will have the same results as me or maybe someone you may know.

It completely reset my diet and I went on to eat a more strict vegetarian diet easily in following weeks. When you accomplish something so huge, you really think twice about putting something naughty in your mouth.

Food tastes so good after fasting that you have a much greater appreciation for healthy, nutritious foods!

One huge thing I noticed was how my gut improved…without TMI, let’s just say I’m very regular now and everything looks good!

Post Reboot Optimization

Optimizing post reboot is so important! If you want to stay in this fat burning state of ketosis, you can do that by continuing to drink ketones daily and following a lower carb “diet”.

Don’t just do the reboot and then get upset if you start eating bad and the weight creeps back on – you have to keep at it and the Reboot is a great JUMP START.  Old habits, “diet” hard, and continuing to drink your ketones daily is KEY!

And if you’re brand new to ketones –  heed my advice to Keto adapt a little BEFORE the reboot. Even that just means drinking one Keto Max per day for a week prior or maybe have some fat coffee using Keto Kreme and doing some shorter intermittent fasting day.

Keto Reboot Results – Reboot #2

I did my second Keto Reboot in May and I lasted the whole 60 hrs. I had so MUCH energy! It felt good to rely on just ketones and not ketones and coffee for those days I needed a HUGE pick-me-up.
