Ketone Operating System
Ketosis is a metabolic state where the body has elevated levels of ketone bodies in the blood. It is characterized by elevated concentrations of ketone bodies with low and stable levels of insulin and blood glucose. Most people associate Ketosis with removing carbohydrates and sugars from the body resulting in the use of stored body fat for energy production. In comparison, Glycolysis is the process by which carbohydrates, glucose and glycogen, are broken down resulting in energy production for the body.
Endogenous Vs Exogenous Ketosis
Endogenous Ketosis – A heightened level of ketones in the body as a result of ketogenesis, also known as Nutritional ketosis. Ketogenesis is the process by which ketone bodies are produced (inside the body) as a result of fatty acid breakdown.
Exogenous Ketosis – A heightened level of ketones in the body as a result of exogenous (outside the body) ketone supplementation. University research suggests that exogenous ketone supplements can induce ketosis, even when there are normal levels of blood glucose.
Ketosis is NOT diabetic ketoacidosis, which is a serious complication associated with uncontrolled diabetes. Ketoacidosis occurs when your body produces high levels of blood acids called ketones in conjunction with high levels of glucose and is diagnosed when blood betahydroxybutyrate (βΗΒ) reaches 5-6 mmol or above.
Keto-Adaption is the process of shifting your metabolism from a glucose based metabolism to a ketone based metabolism. This is accomplished over an extended period of time by following a very strict low carb, low protein, high fat Ketogenic diet. The Ketogenic diet is often confused with and compared to the Atkins low/no carb, high protein diet. However, without limiting protein consumption, the Atkins diet allows for gluconeogenesis (GNG), a metabolic process where excess protein is converted to glucose.
KETO// OS From PRÜVIT
Keto//OS (ketone operating system) from PRÜVIT is the first exogenous ketone supplement available to the consumer market, that is based on government funded research awarded by the Department of Defense and Office of Naval Research. Keto//OS is a nutritional supplement that can have a measurable impact on health and wellness.
KETO//OS contains a specifically engineered ratio of proprietary ketone mineral salts and medium chain triglycerides. This formulation provides a high-energy fuel compound putting someone into a state of Ketosis without incorporating dietary restrictions.
As profound as this statement may be, it can be proven with a simple at-home urine or blood test with just a single serving. So why does this matter and why should you care? Superior to glucose, ketones provide an exceptional foundation to help improve body recomposition (fat loss and muscle preservation) vs. traditional weight loss programs where weight loss can include muscle breakdown.
In addition, ketones provide neuro-protective properties, increased mental focus, and sustained energy levels. Ketones also assist in improving the pattern of LDL levels (bad cholesterol) while increasing the levels of HDL (good cholesterol).
