Keto Drox Review
The keto diet has been around for more than 100 years, but virtually no one outside the medical community had heard of it until a few years ago.
That's when the power of celebrity met the power of social media and a few famous people began tweeting and posting about their keto diet experiences. Suddenly it was everywhere.
And in the years since, its visibility has only increased. All this visibility was bound to attract the attention of the unscrupulous. And sure enough, they crawled out of the woodwork hocking all manner of caffeine pills masquerading as ketogenic fat burners.
Keto Drox is one of the newest supplements to claim it will enhance ketogenic fat burning. But is it for real or is there a snake oil salesman behind the curtain? That's what reviews like this are designed to find out.
What is Keto Drox?
Keto Drox is a supplement that its makers claim will speed up fat burning for those on the keto diet.
It’s said to be an “all-natural” supplement. Though we’re not quite sure exactly what that means in this case. And it contains eggs, milk, and soy. So it’s not going to make a lot of vegetarians and vegans happy.
One thing we will say in its defense is that it contains a nice array of vitamins and minerals. Including vitamins A, C, and E along with B complex vitamins and calcium, potassium and magnesium.
So no matter the state of your ketogenic diet efforts, you still stand to reap some small benefit from it.
That said, the stated purpose of the product is to help you enhance your ketogenic weight loss efforts by providing you with exogenous BHB ketones.
How Much is Keto Drox?
How much Keto Drox costs depends upon how much you buy. But it’s neither the most nor the least expensive supplement of its kind. It typically retails for $49 for a bottle of 60 tablets. Although you can cop a discount if you buy two or three bottles at once.
“How do you get rid of fat? By changing your diet.”
How is Keto Drox Used?
To their credit, the makers of this product state that their supplement is intended to help those on a keto diet enhance their weight loss efforts.
It doesn’t claim to bring on ketosis all by itself and that's good. Because no supplement can do that. The only thing that can induce the ketogenic state is to drastically reduce the number of carbs you eat.
It’s recommended that you take 2 capsules once a day. Or one capsule at two different times during the day. Unfortunately, Keto Drox contains an unknown amount of caffeine. Which we’ll get to in a moment. So, you don’t want to be taking it too close to bedtime or you’re likely to lie awake.
Again, though, if you hope to reap any benefit from taking this supplement, you'll need to make sure you are already low carb compliant before you start using it. That means restricting your carbs to between 30 and 50 grams per day (depending on how big a person you are) for several days.
Only then will your body give up on looking for carbs and slip into a ketogenic state in order to start burning fat for fuel. And only then will a supplement like Keto Drox be able to provide whatever benefit it has to offer.
Ingredients of Keto Drox
Up until now, this has been pretty routine as far as reviews go.
But as we venture into the ingredient list, we encounter our first real issue. That is, the dreaded "proprietary blend."
You see, when the FDA first decided they would require supplement makers to list what's in their pills, capsules, and powders, manufacturers complained that this would force them to reveal trade secrets to their competitors.
To make everyone happy, the FDA created the proprietary blend label. Anytime divulging an ingredient amount constituted giving away an important secret, the maker could list it under the proprietary blend label where they wouldn't have to list actual amounts.
It didn’t take long though for manufacturers to realize they could use this to their advantage. They could say that a supplement contains BHB ketones, but wouldn't have to divulge the full details by hiding them behind the proprietary blend. So, what’s in here?
Proprietary Blend Components - Total 1,000 mg
● BHB salts (Beta-Hydroxybutyrate) - Identical to the ketones your own body makes
● Medium Chain Triglycerides - Enhance weight loss and maybe reduce blood glucose levels
● Apple Cider Vinegar Powder - Once helped some lab rats lose weight.
● Guarana Extract - Contains a significant dose of caffeine
● Collagen - Good for building strong bones and joints
These ingredients are supposed to be the meat and potatoes of the product. But because we don’t know how much of what is actually included, it’s impossible to gauge potential effectiveness from this list. The proprietary blend could be little more than an espresso in pill form.
Beyond those ingredients, there's also a decent variety of vitamins and minerals.
● Vitamins A, C and E
● Vitamin B-complex
In theory, a combo like this should support quicker recovery from workouts and enhance your stamina. And given the possibility that the proprietary blend is mostly caffeine, you should have plenty of energy to work out if that’s what you want to do.
