The keto diet, or ketogenic, diet, is still massively popular amongst the fitness community and non-athletes alike. This might be partly because studies suggest that it could lead to an increase in fat burning during exercise. This high-fat, high-protein and low carb diet works by encouraging the body to switch fuel sources.
When exercising at a high intensity, the body normally gets most of its energy from burning carbohydrates (i.e. glucose) - but on the ketogenic diet, fat oxidation is significantly upregulated, which produces ketones. This process of breaking down body fat for energy is known as ketosis, or keto for short.
It can be tricky transitioning from burning carbohydrates to burning fat on a keto diet, as your body naturally prefers carbohydrates as its main source of energy when you exercise. The diet involves eating a very low amount of carbohydrates (typically below 50g per day) and prioritising fat and protein instead. As a result, you might need to use keto supplements to make sure your body is still getting all the nutrients it needs, as well as to increase your intake of fats and MCTs.
We sell a variety of keto supplements to help anyone planning on starting a ketogenic diet or people who are already on one. Our team of nutritionists have put together a range of ketogenic supplements to cater to every need. From MCT oils and powders and low-calorie syrups to amino acid supplements, vitamins and high protein snacks, we’ve got something for you. For instance, MCT Oil is popular in the keto community as it provides a convenient, easily digestible source of fat. L-Carnitine is involved with carrying fat to the mitochondria for energy production; as a result, L-Carnitine pills and powders are popular amongst the keto community. Or if you’re looking to satisfy your sweet tooth while watching your carb intake, try out our selection of zero-calorie syrups. We’ve got a range of keto-friendly products to try.
