If sticking to a strict and rigorous diet were easy, well, let’s just say the elastic-waist pants industry would be all but extinct. Unfortunately, most people have a hard time staying within the bounds of an effective diet plan – particularly the ketogenic lifestyle, which essentially wipes simple carbohydrates –like breads, pastas, grains and oh-so-comforting sugar – off the menu. 

Famous for its proven effectiveness not just for weight loss, but also for inflammation reduction and blood glucose control, a ketogenic diet might be a godsend for people struggling with type 2 diabetes, pre-diabetes, inflammatory diseases and run-of-the-mill excess weight. 

The catch? It’s tough to keep your body in a state of ketosis the state of burning fat, rather than carbohydrates for energy. In fact, to keep your body in ketosis, you need to consume fewer than 50 grams of carbohydrates per day – about the amount in a single bagel.

A scientifically born solution

In 2017, the U.S. Naval Research Laboratory and the University of Southern Florida patented a drink (Ketond) that allows you to drink your ketones for energy instead of your body using sugar. Your body becomes dependent on ketones for energy, you lose the cravings for sugar and you start to lose significant amounts of weight naturally.

This patented formula has been licensed to the Pleasant Grove, Utah company, Ketond, LLC.

You still need to watch your diet. The most important thing to remember is to eliminate as much refined carbohydrates as you can while still being able to consume healthy amounts of complex carbohydrates.

Ketond delivers drinkable BHB, one of three ketones naturally produced in the body during ketosis. So much more than a byproduct of a fat-burning state, BHB ketones also suppress your appetite, help you control craving and give you a natural energy boost – and Ketond is the only ketone supplement that delivers the therapeutic dosage (11.7 grams) of BHB per serving.

“I tried other products but I noticed fairly quickly that Ketond was better then the rest,” states a review from Ocean L. “No added junk like in other brands, amazing taste and Ketond doesn’t break the bank! I’ve lost a total 70lbs!! 70lbs!! I’m back to my pre-baby weight and just working on maintaining and building muscle. It’s been a huge change mentally and physically. It’s hard to find energy to work out when your overweight, even the 3 km walks I did were tough, but having a supplement to help support me made all the difference.”

Benefits of ketosis without the full keto diet

Ketond works by delivering the ketones your body needs for energy, before or while you’re in ketosis. This helps you adapt to ketosis faster than you would simply by abstaining from carbohydrates for a prolonged period. That period discourages many would-be keto dieters, because the body’s response to a new source of energy is often uncomfortable – or downright painful. As your body is depleted of stored glucose from carbohydrates and starts burning fatty acids for energy, you’ll most likely feel a little less-than amazing. Common signs of the keto flu are stomach aches and pains, nausea, dizziness and lack of energy and focus. 

Enter Ketond, which supplies ketones to help your body reach ketosis faster without any of the keto diet side effects. Additionally, while in ketosis, the BHB in Ketond enhances your body’s natural energy, focus and fat-burning power.

The results

Patented by the U.S. Navy, Ketond has proven effective in helping consumers lose weight, control cravings and appetite, increase energy and endurance and improve thinking, memory and emotions. That’s because, according to scientific research, ketones are the most energy-efficient fuel, yielding more ATP than glycolysis – that means more energy production with less stress on your body. Exogenic ketones – like those you drink in a glass of Ketond, mimic the benefits of the ketones produced in your body during ketosis (endogenous ketones), amplifying energy and focus while decreasing your appetite. 

Navy couldn’t get patent if weight-loss claims weren’t legitimate

According to the June 13, 2017 U.S. Naval Research Laboratory’s Patent claims, (U.S. Patent #9,675,577 B2 ”Compositions and Methods for Producing Elevated and Sustained Ketosis ”) Ketond has been proven to achieve the following results:

Significant weight loss: A single dose of powder mixed with water can significantly elevate blood ketone levels (ketosis) and sustain those levels for 4 hours. When in ketosis, the body burns stored body fat for fuel instead of sugar. This helps promote a significant loss of excess body fat. Two doses per day recommended.

Help reduce cravings and control appetite: Helps avoids sugar withdrawal symptoms commonly experienced by individuals significantly reducing/eliminating refined carbohydrates (foods quickly converted to blood glucose) from their diet.

Increases energy and endurance: Significantly increases energy and endurance levels because the body uses fat (ketones) as source of energy rather than sugar.

Improves thinking, memory and emotions: When the brain uses ketones instead of glucose as the primary source of energy, cognitive and psychological health are greatly improved. Stronger memory, clearer thinking and balanced mood states. Helps alleviate symptoms of Alzheimer’s disease and dementias.

Lowers blood sugar: Reduces blood sugar levels, insulin resistance and their diabetic effects. This allows the body’s cells to metabolize fat and use ketones for energy instead of sugar thus helping to reduce excess body fat.

*It’s important to note that before these claims could be made and the patent approved, the above claims had to be proven and validated by serious research conducted by the Navy and its research partner the University of Southern Florida.

Other potential benefits

In addition, significant weight loss, the patent also states the unique Ketond formulation may help control cancer and even shrink tumors (it may even be used to prevent cancer too, since frequent high blood sugar feed cancer cells – so running your body on ketones for energy and keeping very low blood sugar levels can essentially starve cancer cells over time. This is one tool to help fight cancer, and not a cure-all and should be used in combination of other medically supervised treatment.

The patent also claims the Ketond formula can help reverse Type II diabetes. In addition, the patent claims it may help or even reverse Alzheimer’s as well.

The Optimal Weight Loss Solution?

Ketond combined with a reduction in refined carbohydrates is much easier to follow and adhere to than the strict, powerfully effective keto diet. In fact, the U.S. Navy claims your weight loss could be even faster and lasting!

Plus, it gives the benefits of the keto diet without the drawback of feeling deprived and hungry.
