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.

What is a Ketogenic diet?

A ketogenic diet is a low carb, moderate protein, high fat diet (LCHF for short). When you follow a ketogenic diet it induces your body into Ketosis and enables your body to use ketones as fuel which leads to fat loss.

You do NOT need to follow a ketogenic diet, while drinking Pruvit products, however some choose to which is ok.

Can exogenous ketone supplements provide the same results?

  • 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.

What is nutritional 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

Is Ketosis the same as diabetic ketoacidosis?

  • Ketosis is NOT diabetic ketoacidosis, which is a serious complication of uncontrolled diabetes that occurs when your body produces high levels of blood acids called ketones in conjunction with high levels of glucose, usually when blood BHB reaches 5-6 mmol or above.

What does it mean to be keto adapted?

  • Keto-Adaption is the process of shifting your metabolism from relying mostly on glucose for fuel to relying mostly on fat-based sources of fuel.
  • Not only does fat oxidation increase but your body starts producing enough ketones that they can be used as a significant source of fuel.

What is Keto OS?

  • Inspired by ketone research through the Department of Defense and Office of the Navy, Pruvit’s Keto OS is a Ketone Operating System, which acts like a 4th macronutrient that delivers superhuman performance fuel to optimize better health, fitness, and wellness.
