Kero Primal Review
Keto Primal is a BHB supplement that promises to produce ketogenic diet effects without the user actually having to be on a low carb diet.
BHB - or beta-hydroxybutyrate - is the most abundant type of ketone produced by the body when in ketosis. Its responsibility is to seek out and metabolize fat stores to use as energy when there aren’t enough carbohydrates available to fuel the body.
Keto Primal is not new and it’s not the only supplement that claims it can guide you to a state of quasi-ketosis. Like many of its contemporaries, however, it’s long on hype and - as our testing revealed - short on delivery.
You see, while the BHB ketones it uses are what the body needs to burn fat just eating a few and tossing them into a system swimming with carbs without adjusting your meal plan isn’t going to do much. Except create BHB-rich urine when you go to the bathroom.
The only supplement we’ve ever tested that actually showed healthy fat burning results without the user first having to eat a strict low-carb diet is PureFit Keto.
Every other one, including now Keto Primal, requires you to slash carb intake first. If you don’t do that first and slip into genuine ketosis they simply aren’t potent enough to override the body’s natural preference for carbs.
That said, if you are already in ketosis Keto Primal may be able to help you lose weight at a slightly accelerated rate and might have a positive effect on blood sugar. And that’s a good thing. Something the company should be crowing about.
Instead of wasting their time and yours making promises they can’t keep.
What Are the Ingredients in Keto Primal?
The ingredients in Keto Primal are as follows:
● BHB ketones - Keto Primal ingredients include all 3 types of BHB ketones necessary for metabolizing fats. These are exogenous (created outside the body) forms of magnesium beta hydroxybutyrate, calcium beta hydroxybutyrate and sodium beta hydroxybutyrate.
These metabolites take over when the body is starved of its default fuel, carbohydrates. Their job is to provide the body a mechanism for transforming all the fat stored around your midsection and in your butt and other areas into fuel the body can run on.
That’s it. There are no other active ingredients in Keto Primal. Everything else, including magnesium stearate, rice flour, gelatin and silicon dioxide are used to create the capsule, to keep the various ketones from sticking together and to make sure the capsule is full.
If the exogenous ketones you’re eating were provided in sufficient quantity it’s possible Keto Primal might be able to guide you to some benefits, like lowering the risk of heart disease. Unfortunately, that doesn’t seem to be the case. And we’ll get into that in a few moments.
How to Use Keto Primal
This is a standard capsule type supplement so there are no secrets about eating Keto Primal.
It’s suggested that you take one capsule at a time 2 twice a day for a total of 2 capsules in any given day.
Unless you use it in conjunction with the keto diet however, you’re wasting your money.
The keto diet food list includes olive oil, eggs, cheese, vegetables, coconut oil, sweet potatoes, nuts and seeds, mct oil and high-fat food like bacon.
You should also consume moderate amounts of meat for protein.
If you can’t eat healthy and insist on spaghetti and milk shakes Keto Primal won’t work. Period.
Does Keto Primal Actually Work?
No. It doesn’t do what it says it will do.
Which is to burn fats using exogenous ketones without the user having to adhere to a strict low-carb moderate protein ketogenic diet.
And we have a pretty good idea why it doesn’t live up to the marketing hype. If you take a quick look at the label you’ll see 4 important things.
The first 3 are ingredients:
● Magnesium beta hydroxybutyrate
● Calcium beta hydroxybutyrate
● Sodium beta hydroxybutyrate
