Keto supplements like MCT oil and BHB claim to help dieters achieve ketosis and reach nutrition goals. Experts reveal what works, and what to avoid.
The keto diet, which restricts carbohydrates and trains the body to burn fat as fuel instead, has gained attention for potential benefits like weight loss, increased focus and energy, and even as treatment to certain illnesses.
And while the diet remains controversial among health professionals, marketers are eagerly stepping up to cash in on the interest with supplements billed to fill gaps in the diet and help dieters “get into ketosis,” or when the body is forced to switch its energy source from carbs to fat.
INSIDER talked to a nutritionist and a keto follower to learn which products may be helpful for some people, which are simply expensive and unnecessary, and which may actually set people back in their goals.
Research is mixed on whether synthetic BHB is effective.
Keto Lean is a food supplement made in the USA in an FDA-approved facility. They are meant to add to your ketogenic diet and get you the results that you are seeking. Keto Lean gets you into ketosis– the metabolic state you want to be in while on a ketogenic diet. The pills get you into a state of burning fat, instead of sugar or glucose, which allows you to lose weight and get leaner! While it’s appropriate to include moderate exercise to see best results, you’ll find that Keto Lean is so potent that it’s possible to let your diet and the pills do the work for you and still see results.
Unfortunately, while on a ketogenic diet, sometimes we lose track of the other things that matter aside from weight loss. These include your mental clarity, as well as staying away from hunger pangs and cravings. Not only that, but a keto diet can also mean putting a strain on your energy levels, which is normal as your body adjusts to burning a new kind of fuel. Keto Lean prevents this from happening as it improves overall wellness: both your physical and mental well-being. This means that you are able to suppress your cravings more so that you don’t end up cheating on your diet with a carb-laden meal. Your energy and focus levels will also be regulated better.
The pills are easy to swallow, with no marked aftertaste. They are filled with BHB (beta-hydroxybutyrates) which boosts the effects of ketosis on the body, without promoting any energy loss resulting in a crash or downtime. Keto Lean focuses on using the highest quality natural ingredients for use in their pills, ensuring that the quality you receive is consistently the best. They pride themselves on having a non-GMO, vegan, gluten-free product that can be enjoyed by healthy adults under the supervision of a doctor.
Take this product 20 to 30 minutes before meals, at two capsules per day.
