niKETO Supplement Line
niKETO has developed a full line of supplements to assist with KETO and low-carb diets.
Your journey to ketosis begins by removing your body’s primary energy source, glucose (which comes from the carbohydrates you consume) so that it can start to burn fat as fuel. Taking supplements such as apple cider vinegar, cinnamon, and turmeric can accelerate this “carb detox” process, because they contain powerful compounds shown to stabilize blood sugar and decrease insulin levels, which plays an important role in helping deplete the glycogen stores in the body. Ketosis occurs when glycogen stores are depleted, insulin is lowered, and the body can begin to use fat as its main source of energy. Depleting the body’s glycogen stores can typically take 1-2 days, but by incorporating these supplements into your diet, you will speed up the depletion process, reduce insulin levels, and achieve ketosis quicker.
Ketones are unique, energy-producing molecules made from fatty acids. They are made from fat stored within the body to produce energy in the absence of glycogen from carbohydrates. When glycogen levels are depleted, blood sugar and insulin are lowered, the body begins breaking down fats for energy, producing ketones which are used for energy.
At niKETO, we have identified 7-keto DHEA, MCT oil, green coffee bean extract, and l-glutamine as the most effective supplement choices for enhancing the production of ketones and maintaining ketosis, while keeping your energy level high, focus sharp, and immune system functioning at an optimal level.
Low Carb Nutrient Replenish
While there are many health benefits of the keto diet, it is possible to miss out on important vitamins and minerals, that are either derived from foods that are avoided when following a low-carb eating plan, or at risk of being depleted due to changes in body chemistry due to the state of ketosis, such as electrolytes, vitamins D3 and B12, and omega-3s. It is important to fill in any nutritional gaps of your keto diet, and at niKETO we want to ensure that it’s easy to supplement your diet with the necessary essential vitamins and minerals needed to maintain a safe and healthy low-carb lifestyle.
Energy Powerhouse Supplements
niKETONES and KETO Collagen are are two energy powerhouse supplements specifically designed to complement the ketogenic diet. niKETONES, our exogenous BHB supplement, is great to use anytime you need to achieve ketosis faster, and especially ideal for getting back on track after a cheat day. Exogenous ketones (BHB) are ketones bodies that cause blood glucose to decrease significantly and improve oxygen utilization, helping to kickstart ketosis. Keto collagen is a two-in-one super boost formula that combines collagen peptides and MCT oil to help with nutrient absorption, promote quick recovery and tissue repair, and facilitate energy production, detoxification, and digestion.
