Explain ketosis to me

When you consistently eat a very low amount of carbohydrates and a moderate amount of protein, your liver converts your body fat and the fat you eat into ketones. These ketones replace glucose (which is derived from carbs and sugar) as your primary energy source.

Ketones also pass into your brain and produce full-body benefits. Research has shown:

  • Increased weight loss: Keto can encourage the body to start burning its own fat stores directly for energy. It also helps you feel less hungry throughout the day (research).
  • Disease management support: Keto can aid in improving the symptoms of cardiovascular disease, diabetes, and epilepsy (research).
  • Improved athletic performance: Keto can extend the length of workouts by allowing fat to be more quickly burned when the body needs more energy (research).

When your body consumes energy from ketones, you are said to be in a metabolic state called ketosis. That’s what the ketogenic diet is — simply using fat, instead of sugar, for energy.

(The low carb intake also means keto helps with blood sugar regulation: Off keto, most people eat an overabundance of refined carbohydrates, which spikes blood sugar levels.)

To get into ketosis, your diet must cross a sustained threshold of high fat (around 70% of your calories), moderate protein (25%), and low amounts of carbohydrates (5%).

This means, on keto, you can eat as much delicious coconut oil, butter, and eggs as you want. But, you must skip the ice cream, pizza, and sugary drinks.

Fortunately, there’s also a simpler way to get into ketosis. A way that allows for a less-strict diet while allowing you to experience its benefits: You can directly ingest ketones. That’s what Perfect Keto Base does (see below). It raises your blood's ketone levels to get you into ketosis — on the go, any time.

The ketogenic diet was originally developed by doctors treating epilepsy in children, for which it is very effective. (It reduces seizures by 50%+ in half of patients who adopt it.)

In the last decade, the ketogenic diet’s secondary benefits have gained worldwide recognition among athletes seeking heightened performance, plus non-athletes wanting to improve their fitness and optimize gut health — among other systemic issues.

Ketosis Nutrition + Exercise

The ketogenic diet is for people who want to lose weight and care about overall health.

If you're interested in breaking fitness plateaus, increased energy, or intermittent fasting, keto might be the most effective lifestyle change you can quickly adopt.

Low-carb diets like the ketogenic diet have been shown to be more effective for weight loss than low-calorie diets. Our three products (below) make the ketogenic diet easier.


Instant ketosis. Great taste with zero fillers.


Keto Base is our most popular product. It's the key ingredient for starting keto. 

The ketogenic diet is the act of staying in ketosis. This is metabolic state where your energy comes from ketones, which your body produces when it breaks down dietary fat. This is instead of getting your energy from carbs you eat.

Your body produces ketones on highly carb-restricted diets. You can also take ketones directly. That's what Base does. It effectively gets you into ketosis any time.

Ketosis requires protein. Research shows collagen is uniquely helpful for skin, joint, and gut health.


Quality protein does so much more for you than just build muscle.

Collagen is the primary protein throughout your body's connective tissue. When you ingest it, it helps moisten skin, improve gut health, and lessen joint pain.

We source 100% grass-fed collagen from USA cattle. We do not support clear-cutting of the Amazon rainforest.
