Perfect Keto kindly provided me with the products discussed to review, they have had no input in the review.
Who are Perfect Keto?
They are a company that produce exogenous ketone products. They state they want to provide affordable and effective products to help people achieve states of Ketosis. They also make a point that their competitors needlessly overcharge, and they do not use the MLM network tactics others use.
What did they send me?
They use there own formula, which was developed by their founder who is a functional clinician. They state the salt will raise your blood ketone levels, energy and focus. Apart from the salt, there is only natural flavourings and Stevia.
I have used each the two flavours on rotation, in the morning. 1 scoop in a glass of water. It mixes fairly well with a spoon, and neither taste chalky. The chocolate sea salt is my preferred flavour. It does actually taste of chocolate. Maybe its just me but the Peaches & Cream flavour tasted like no peaches and cream I have ever had before, but do not worry it didn’t taste bad. I just much prefer the chocolate one.
After taking them I did feel a bit of a Keto buzz and felt good afterwards. I do not measure ketones anymore. I just go off how I feel. I have being doing the Ketogenic Diet for a while now and I can tell if I am in ketosis or not to a degree. So I cannot claim any blood ketone increase stats in my review. However I can say I believe these ketogenic products helped give me a “ketogenic boost”.
They state that the MCT oil powder is 100% made from coconuts and have no additives or fillers, like some other MCT oils have.
I always use Coconut or MCT oil in my Butter Coffees. Which I generally have once a day. Therefore I have being using the MCT powder as a replacement for the oil. So the use of MCT is something that is a part of my daily routine, so it is hard to judge the effects the powder has had. However what I can say is that it is as least as effective as the oil I was using because I have not felt worse. The powder is very finely ground, and I wasn’t sure how it would mix in my coffee, but their were no issues in the end. It mixed perfectly well.
One word of warning. I use about a tablespoon of oil in my coffee. So the first time I used the powder, I used what I though was the equivalent. ERROR. It went straight through me, if you know what I mean. So I had to start on smaller dosages and work my way back up over the course of a week. I have had no issues since then.
As they say on their website, exogenous ketone products are very expensive and I agree with them on that. Although I would not describe these as cheap. However Perfect Keto are right in saying they are cheaper than their rivals. With that in mind if you are a believer in the benefits of exogenous ketones, then these are worth a try.
I am also an Ambassador for IAMRUNBOX, which produces products to help the run commute community.
