When I first started keto I had everything ready from electrolytes to my protein, Magnisium and vitamin D supplements, I still didn’t know where to stand when it came to exogenous ketones, I’ve been so long on keto which makes me pretty sure that my body is good at making its own ketones, right? The MLM sellers on facebook and twitter certainly didn’t give a positive impression, I’ve never experienced somehing like ketosis in term of weight loss, but getting sales pitches pushed on my face talking about some kind of magical solution to obesity was nothing but a turn off.
Exogenous ketones have become a popular nutritional supplement since their introduction in 2014. My curiosity was still present but I didn’t give it much thought at the time, Until I noticed this new brand that wasn’t as expensive as the others since it wasn’t part of an MLM program, It was then when I started viewing exogenous ketones in a much more postive way and wanted to give it a chance.
The brand is Perfect Keto, it was created to help us increase the ketone (energy) levels in our body and enjoy “a more affordabe and tastier” keto lifestyle. A lot of my readers were asking me about exogenous ketones, So I started using it for 4 weeks now, And It’s time to share what I learned so far.
What exactly is Perfect Keto?
beta hydroxybutyrate (BHB) is the main ingredient of the product Perfect Keto, BHB is the ketone responsable for energy when we’re in ketosis, Using beta hydroxybutyrate as a supplement helps increase ketones in your blood, It is also known that more ketones in the blood means more energy, A better feeling and mood in general and all the other benefits of the keto lifestyle (Less hunger, Wight loss, Better gut health, etc..)
Using ketones as a supplement is comparable to those energy chews runners take to help them boost their energy, feel motivated and focused. To sum it all up, In keto your body produces ketones which are then used to burn fat for energy, Only this time with no sugar crashes sinces we no longer burn carbs for energy
Will you notice any difference? (The benefits)
The Main Benefits
- More energy
Even from the first scoop, I felt immediate response from my body, Felt like I had way more energy than usual, My mood got better and I was motivated for my next work out session. After I was done with my work out, I didn’t feel as tired as I usually do, I also stopped having those lazy thoughts where I find myself making up excuses to skip training, It’s fascinating what more energy and a better mood can make you accomplish.
- Breaking weight loss stalls
This is another thing that I noticed, At the time my weight hit a plateau, I didn’t really mind since I was pretty happy with my weight. About a week after taking Perfect Keto my weight kept going down just like it used to when I first started keto, This can either be related to the raise of ketone levels in my blood, Which helped burn the fat much faster, Or it can also be related to the energy boost I got from taking the supplement, Helping me push my limits in the gym and therefore burn more fat.
- Will help avoid Keto-Flu
I noticed a big raise of my ketone levels when I measured it. Because of that raise Perfect Keto is supposed to help ketoers avoid the famous Keto-flu.
- Natural feeling of energy
This is another thing I love about Perfect Keto, I experienced no racing heartbeat, No sweating, no insomnia. It was a very natural boost that I honestly enjoy.
The Main Cons
- A possible stomach upset when starting
There are some people who get an upset stomach just by using MCT oil, The same goes for ketones. I personally didn’t experience any upset stomach since Keto Perfect worked on its formula to avoid this issue but there is always a chance that your body can react in the beginning. If you’re sensitive to Mct oil, There is a powdered version from keto perfect that I also used. It smoothly blends and gets easily digested.
How about the taste?
I’m in no place to compare it to other brands since Perfect Keto was my one and only ketones product that I’ve tried, I never tried other brands because of my deep dislike of the MlM marketing system all the other brands use. Perfect Keto comes with two main flavors: Peaches and cream AND Chocolate sea salt. BHB has a salty taste so you’ll definitely notice a salty taste, Still the natural flavors are so strong it covers the whole shake with a refreshing smell and taste, Me personally I like both, But I prefer Peaches and cream because of the creamy taste of the supplement! Yum
How to use/ When to use?
From the day I put my hands on Perfect Keto, I used it for almost everything, From a preworkout supplement, An energy booster for when I’m feeling weak, I also use it after a cheatmeal just so I can avoid any chance of having keto flu while getting back into ketosis. Now my daily usage of Perfect Keto has as a goal to keep my energy, Ketones and weight loss levels up. Or when I’m feeling moody or unmotivated to give me that energy push to stay focused.
From my experience Perfect Keto was a good friend to me, Helped me break my weight plateau, Gave me more energy and comparing it to my other supplements, it tastes amazing! Also If you compare the price with other ketone supplements out there, Perfect Keto was the most affordable which is a big Yes in my book.
