Ketonx is a product of ForeverGreen.
KetonX features a specific blend of natural ingredients that allow the body to begin converting to a state of nutritional ketosis within hours, not days! Its patented technology contains exogenous ketones Beta-hydroxybutyrate (or BHB salts), and MCT oils (medium-chain triglycerides). Both are natural ingredients that help the body become fat adapted, fat burning and enter ketosis more quickly.
Most people are dependent on carbohydrates for energy. Nutritional Ketosis is a metabolic state where the body relies on fat for energy, instead of carbs. Although there are many different benefits of being in ketosis, but the most significant is fat loss.
KetonX Helps Promote:
- Weight Loss
- Mental Clarity and Focus
- Energy and Vitality.
Ketosis is a metabolic state where your body burns fat for energy.
Despite its many known health benefits, some people believe that nutritional ketosis is extremely difficult to access through diet alone — it can feel out of reach, beyond the horizon until now.
Combined with the right diet, KetonX can be your bridge into ketosis. The US patented formula in KetonX is designed to make the first four days of your new lifestyle a smooth transition from a carb-dependant body to a fat-burning one.
By the fifth day, you've crossed the bridge into ketosis. Congratulations, you'll be sailing along towards better health, fully in nutritional ketosis.
There are three ways to use KetonX. 1) Use KetonX as a bridge to help you transition smoothly into nutritional ketosis. KetonX helps reduce the symptoms of the keto-flu by providing exogenouse ketones before the body is able to producce them naturally. When you start a ketogenic diet, take KetonX at least once a day of the first four days. You can continue taking KetonX even after you're fully in nutritional ketosis. 2) Any time you need extra energy while in ketosis, drink KetonX for a ketone boost. 3) if you slip out of ketosis by eating too many carbs or too much protein, simply keep eating a ketogenic diet and drink KetonX to back into ketosis.
Although it seems backwards, the way to make your body burn fat, is to feed it fat.
Keeping your body in ketosis requires a diet aiming for 70% fat, 20% protein, and 10% carbs, combined with moderate exercise and plenty of water.
Nutritional Ketosis is a metabolic state where your body burns fat for energy instead of carbs and sugar. When the body burns fat, 200% more energy is produced. Some of the amazing results of this process are increased mental function and clarity, reduced hunger and cravings, improved mood, better sleep and of course, loss.
When the body’s carbohydrate supply is limited, the liver breaks down fat molecules into compounds
called ketones. There are three types of ketones - Acetone, Acetoacetate, and Beta-hydroxybutyrate (bHB).
The body mainly uses bHB for energy. When the body uses ketones for energy, over 200 times more energy is produced.
Why Supplement your Natural Ketones? You may have heard the term exogenous ketones and wondered what they are. These are simply ketones that are not produced inside the body, but are taken as a supplement. Why would you want to ingest ketones if your body can already make them? The biggest reason is because the body struggles to make and use ketones on it’s own when carbohydrates are first restricted. Most exogenous ketones are in the form of bHB salts, which means that the natural compound Beta-hydroxybutyrate is combined with potassium, sodium, and/or calcium.
Unfortunately, there is a downside to supplementing ketosis exclusively with bHB salts long term. While bHB salts give the body an initial boost of ketones, they can slow down the body’s natural production of ketones. However, there is a way around this. MCT’s (medium chain triglycerides) can be converted into ketones even if the body is not in ketosis. They skip through normal digestion and go straight to the liver to be broken down into ketones for the body. MCT’s can be found naturally in coconuts and coconut oil, but there must be a better way to boost ketone levels than cracking open a coconut each day?
Both diets restrict many of the same foods and cut out carbohydrates, but for different reasons. The paleo diet focuses on eating foods found in the caveman era — meat, fish, nuts, seeds, vegetables, fruits, herbs, spices, healthy fats and oil. It excludes processed and artificial foods. You end up eating a lot of protein, fiber, and fat on the paleo diet, and not very many carbs.
The keto diet cuts down on carbs and focuses on fats which sends the body into ketosis so that the body burns fat (ketones) for fuel instead of carbs. On the keto diet, you’ll get about 70% of your calories from fat, 20% from protein and 10% from carbs. Both diets emphasize whole foods or foods that have undergone no or very limited processing. Both diets eliminate grains, legumes, and added sugar.
Here's just a few interesting facts and info:
Is counting calories important on a ketogenic diet? Counting calories is not crucial for success on a ketogenic diet. It is more important to measure macros and stay within the correct ratios of fat, protein and carbs. Consuming too may carbs or protein, or not getting enough fat, could cause you to slip out of ketosis, especially in the beginning. You can still remain in ketosis with a normal or high caloric intake. However, to maximize weight loss, limit your caloric intake while staying within the corret ratio of macros. Chances are if you sticking the the right ratios, you'll be reducing calories anyway.

What are macros? Macros are short for the term Macronutirents in the context of nutrition and the keto diet.
Macronutrients are the energy-giving components of food that fuels our body.
They include carbohydrates, protein, and fat.
The macronutient (macro) breakdown for the ketogenic diet is approximately: 70% Fat; 20% Protein and 10% Carbs.

What's the difference between net carbs and total carbs? When a food contains carbohydrates and a high amount of fiber, the body processes the sugars differently. Some people think of it as the high fiber "cancelling out" the carbs. To calculate your net carb intake for the day, take your total fiber number and subtract it from your total grams of carbohydrates. For example, after a sample day of beginner keto eating, I consumed 33 grams of carbs and 13 grams of fiber 33 – 13 = 20 net carbs — not bad!

Although there are a lot of health benefits, the intention of most keto dieters is weight loss. Your body normally uses its carbohydrate store for fuel when energy is needed. Only after the carbohydrates are used up does the body dip into the fat store for energy burning. The keto diet causes the body to skip the first step by cutting out carbohydrates, forcing the body into ketosis — a metabolic state in which the body is using fat for energy instead of carbohydrates.
