Energy for Breakfast!
How many days of the week do you wake up tired, have to get ready in a hurry, and wish you could have a magic breakfast that gave you energy and nutrition, without the sugar and caffeine?
Your dreams have just become reality!
This breakfast hot drink (which can be also made iced for Summer!) provides a number of quality nutrients, plus pure ketones, to jump-start your day with lots of stable, long-lasting energy, which is actually good for you!
Why ketones for breakfast are good for you?
That you need to lose weight or not, maintaining steady energy levels through the day should be everyone’s goal!
When you start your day using fat and protein for fuel instead of carbs, a number of things happen:
First your blood sugars do not spike, so you do not have to crash a few hours later. Also no blood glucose spike means not so much insulin is released. Remember, insulin stores fat, so you can burn fat for energy instead, yes, your own! (Here is a cool study on the long-term effects of keto on blood sugar and insulin)
Second ketones, fat and protein are long-lasting energy sources, so you will not get hungry after 1 hour.
Third drinking exogenous ketones puts you in an immediate state of ketosis, which helps A LOT if you are trying to keto adapt and if you want to maintain your keto adaptation using a bit more carbs. (The second scenario is more specific to athletes and people with thyroid and adrenal issues).
About Keto OS
Keto OS is one of the leading supplements of exogenous ketones found in the market today. I like Keto OS especially because it is a well researched and well formulated product and it finally comes in a gluten- and dairy-free form.
Keto OS can help you keep your blood glucose steady, it can improve athletic performance and it can greatly curb hunger and cravings!
