Is KETO//OS® Dairy Free?
No there is a small amount of dairy around 3grams that we use to plate the MCT powder in our 2.1 Orange Dream version of KETO//OS. However, the 3.0 Chocolate Swirl and Max Maui Punch are both dairy free!

Can a Type 1 or Type 2 Diabetic take this product?
In both T1 and T2 diabetes, patients have abnormal insulin signalling. In T1, the pancreas doesn’t make enough insulin, and in T2, the body’s tissues are resistant to insulin. Insulin helps transport glucose from the blood into the cells where it can be used for energy. In severely uncontrolled diabetes (typically someone not being treated for their condition), insulin signalling is wildly impaired; and an acute and life threatening condition called ketoacidosis can occur.
If a person is eating a standard diet wherein carbohydrate is a major portion of their macronutrient intake, their tissues are mostly burning glucose for fuel. Therefore, if insulin signalling is incredibly impaired, this will cause glucose to build up in the blood because it can’t get into the cells. Thus, the cells are basically starving even though there’s plenty of glucose in the blood. (This is sometimes referred to as “starvation in the land of plenty.”) This causes the liver to begin making ketones from stored fats, just as it would if you were starving from not eating anything. Insulin also plays a role in regulating ketone production, and normally it inhibits ketone production if it’s too high to keep ketones at a proper level in the blood. So, if the patient’s diabetes is too severely uncontrolled, it is possible that a situation called “runaway ketogenesis” occurs.
The liver makes lots and lots of ketones in a short amount of time. Ketones are acids, and when at extremely high levels (typically >20mM), they can cause blood pH to drop, which can be very dangerous and/or fatal. This is diabetic ketoacidosis. Is being in therapeutic ketosis itself dangerous for a diabetic? No. There is substantial scientific evidence to suggest that consuming a ketogenic diet could actually be a very good treatment for diabetes, perhaps also exogenous ketones. Many individuals are even able to go off insulin once they switch to a ketogenic diet because it takes away the real culprit (carbs).
Ketones don’t require insulin to enter the cells and be used as energy. Therefore, switching the body away from glucose metabolism and towards ketone metabolism is very helpful. Glucose doesn’t store up in the blood (because you’re not consuming carbs), and the impaired insulin signalling isn’t as important since ketones can get into the cells without it. Plus, as described before, ketones enhance insulin sensitivity, especially in someone trying to manage their diabetes with a low carb or keto diet.
Thus, KETO//OS providing therapeutic ketone levels to the blood also provides this benefit. A diabetic could potentially be harmed by taking this product if that person had uncontrolled diabetes and were already in an acute diabetic ketoacidosis crisis. In that situation, no, they would not want to take the product, as it would elevate ketones further. It would be an unlikely scenario, and someone would have to have their condition uncontrolled to the point of potentially entering diabetic ketoacidosis before purchasing or using ketone supplementation. Diabetic patients should only use this product under the care of a physician.
What are the benefits of KETO // OS and Ketones?
The benefits of ketones, and ketone supplementation are vast; and as research continues to expand, the list keeps growing. Currently, research supports the use of ketones for the following benefits:
- Weight loss
- Blood sugar balance and enhanced insulin sensitivity
- Increased satiety, and decreased food cravings
- Improved energy levels, oxygen capacity, motor performance & athletic performance
- Mostly due to the impact of ketones on enhanced blood flow, through vasodilation
- Migraine treatment
- Neuro-protective benefits in seizure disorders; ADHD; Alzheimer’s disease, memory and cognitive function; Parkinson’s Disease and Multiple Sclerosis
- Autism and improved behaviour and social impacts
- Mood stabilization in bipolar disorder (type II)
- Stroke prevention; cardiovascular disease; metabolic syndrome management; improved cholesterol levels
- Inflammation management
- Endurance enhancement

What kind of diet should I follow when I'm taking KETO // OS?
The wonderful thing about taking exogenous ketones via KETO//OS is that you can experience the benefits of ketones without diet modification. Even those who don’t change a thing will still experience the benefits. However, it is encouraged that you slowly begin to follow a lower carbohydrate diet and enhance your body’s ability to utilize.

Does KETO // OS have side effects?
Supplementing with KETO//OS or following a ketogenic diet can cause a slightly diuretic effect and can deplete magnesium, potassium and sodium stores. This can be rectified by supplementing with a good electrolyte or increasing the sodium in your diet. However, KETO//OS adds additional sodium to the formulation to counter-act this sodium depletion.
KETO//OS is blended with medium chain triglycerides, which can often cause digestive distress. This is due to the fact that your body has not yet adapted to the increased fats in your diet and is less efficient at utilizing ketones as its fuel source. Once the body has adapted to this increased fat in the diet, the digestive distress should resolve.
We recommend to start slowly and build up to a full serving twice a day, but it is totally up to the individual.
