Frequently Asked Questions


What is a Ketogenic Diet?

This popular regimen is a low-carb, high “healthy” fat diet that stimulates your body’s natural ability to use energy it has stored as a reserve (body fat). Without an adequate amount of glucose from carbs, your body begins breaking down fat for energy, converting your body into a metabolic state, known as “ketosis.”

What is Ketosis?

Ketosis is a natural body process that occurs when the body doesn’t have enough glucose available to use as energy. As a result, the body's metabolism will then burn fats for energy, thereby creating "ketones". Ketones are a major source of energy for the brain and also provide cellular energy as a vital foundation of ATP (adenosine triphosphate) in the muscles. ATP is a coenzyme that cells use for energy storage. Achieving ketosis reduces the need for carbohydrates for energy, which can help curb carb cravings. Research shows this may promote the burning of body fat for additional energy.

Will I have energy without eating carbs?

The body has two major energy sources – it burns glucose or ketones. Most people burn glucose because they are supplying a steady form of sugar, starches and proteins in their diet that are converted into sugars. However, too much of these macronutrients can have adverse effects on the body. Ketones are non-carbohydrate energy molecules that are converted from fatty acids in the body. Our bodies can make ketones from stored fat or from consumption of certain fats including MCTs.

What does “Bio-hacking” mean?

Bio-hacking is the concept where you can use nutrigenomics to “hack” your body and take control of your personal biology. Nutrigenomics is the study of the interaction between nutrition and genes. Today’s nutritional science provides the tools to help improve health and the way you feel and perform.

How long does it take to start seeing results on a Ketogenic Diet?

After approximately one week on the ketogenic diet – with the help of MCT oil and other healthy fat consumption, Ketogenic Meal Shake and Meal Bar supplements and/or use of Real Ketones GoBHB ketone salts – the body’s metabolism shifts from burning glucose to burning fatty acids, which may naturally help achieve and maintain a state of ketosis in the body. Ketones or ketogenic ingredients are consumed and used by the body as fuel for the brain, heart, and muscles. Whether you are on a strict or modified ketogenic diet, Paleo diet, Atkins diet or simply trying to eat healthier, you can depend on Keto Science products to help promote a healthy, energetic lifestyle.  

Can I use the Ketogenic Meal Shake as a meal replacement?

Absolutely. The Keto Science™ Ketogenic Meal Shake is made with real food ingredients such as coconut oil, grass fed butter, avocado oil, hydrolyzed collagen, MCTs (Medium Chain Triglycerides) and other wholesome natural foodstuffs. It provides either 220 (Chocolate) or 230 (Vanilla) calories, enough to fill you up and provide ketogenic nutrition. If you're looking for a smooth and creamy shake without high carbs, Keto Science Ketogenic Meal Shake has you covered. This delicious shake may help promote fat burning, energy and enhanced brain function.

Where do MCTs come from?

Medium chain triglycerides (MCTs) are the major beneficial fatty acids found in coconut oil, and are not stored in the same way as other saturated fats. Instead, MCTs are quickly broken down into fuel (in the form of ketones) to provide a fast energy source for both your brain and muscles. Keto Science Ketogenic MCT Oil is derived from only the finest natural coconuts and is created using a triple steam distillation process. No chemicals or solvents of any kind are utilized in the extraction and distillation. This premium quality MCT Oil is carefully emulsified to ensure a complete blend when mixed with your favorite beverage.

How many carbs are in the Ketogenic Meal Shake?

At first glance, it seems like the Keto Science Ketogenic Meal Shake contains carbohydrates that you might not want on a ketogenic diet. But if you look more closely, you’ll see that the net carbs are low at just 4 (Chocolate) or 5 (Vanilla) grams. When counting carbs, fiber doesn’t count toward the carbohydrate level because these are not used as fast energy by the body (like simple carbs). So, subtracting 4 grams of fiber from the 8 grams of total carbs in Chocolate Ketogenic Meal Shake provides just 4 grams of net carbs.

Where do the fats come from in the Ketogenic Meal Shakes?

Keto Science Ketogenic Meal Shakes are made with coconut oil, grass fed butter, avocado oil, MCTs (Medium Chain Triglycerides) and other wholesome natural ingredients.
