Hello world! If you’re looking for a detailed Pruvit Keto OS Review review driven by results, you’ve found it!
I started drinking ketones in 2015 when Pruvit first brought exogenous ketones to the market when the only flavor was Orange Dream, and now there’s a buffet of delicious flavors!
It’s 2019, and I continue to drink them daily since it gives me so many benefits and want to share my journey with you!
Pruvit’s Keto OS (Ketone Operating System) is an exogenous ketones powder you mix with water that comes in charged and decaf in a variety of YUMMY flavors!
One serving of Keto OS elevates your ketone levels and puts you into therapeutic ketosis. The skinny is – you help your body burn fat rather than glucose. It suppresses appetite, and is a great tool for intermittent fasting.
What I love most about drinking ketones is how they make me FEEL – happy and with sustained energy throughout the day, focused, and much better workouts!

What is Ketosis?
Pruvit Ketones Vs. Ketogenic Diet
The Ketogenic Diet will also put your body into ketosis, however it’s very strict – less than 20 grams of carbs per day. To put that in perspective – one cup of rice has about 48 grams of carbs. Yea….three bites and you’re out of ketosis.
When you lower carbs to that level, your body makes “endogenous” ketones through a process called Ketogenesis. Your body is literally turning fat into a fuel called a ketone body (BHB).
But what if you don’t want to follow a super strict diet but you still want the benefits of being in a state of ketosis? Less hunger, amazing energy, fuel to intermittent fast, fat loss? Or what if your body just doesn’t produce many ketones on its own?
The definition of KETOSIS is having elevated blood ketone levels. So yes, by drinking these “exogenous” ketones you put your body into a much higher therapuetic state of ketosis and you are giving your body a FUEL SOURCE.
You DO NOT have to follow a ketogenic diet to benefit from drinking ketones! (I get this question a LOT).
Benefits of Drinking Ketones:
- Sustained energy
- Increased focus
- Suppressed appetite
- Better mood
- Better sleep
- Muscle preservation
- Clear skin
- Fat loss
Keto OS Results – My Initial Fat Loss Results
The first time I started drinking Keto OS (Orange Dream) was in Oct. 2015 and it helped me to eat healthier and get some fat loss going. I lost about 11 lbs in six weeks!
This was huge for me since the prior year I’d gained a little extra padding going through fertility treatments. I went through 3 IVF cycles, lost a pregnancy, and went through a D&C surgery.
The hormones were no joke. No matter WHAT I did, I couldn’t seem to get any fat loss going, not to mention my mental state, I felt depressed.
However, after starting the ketones I noticed my clothes started to fit differently and I wasn’t as hungry, and my mood did a 180!
Like many lifestyle changes we get excited about starting, I got complacent after a while. I got out of the habit of drinking ketones, and I started eating bad again. Sometimes you don’t realize how much something has helped you until you stop, am I right?
I started drinking ketones again when the Maui Punch came out in 2016, and haven’t stopped since… ketones bring compliance!
Keto OS Results – Committed to Ketones!
Long Term Benefits of Drinking Ketones
When I recommitted to drinking ketones, I made some other lifestyle changes as well. I not only wanted to lose fat, but I wanted to shape my body.
I joined Orange Theory Fitness (which is HIIT training – run, row, weights) and I do that 2-3x per week and play some beach volleyball on the weekends.
I did eat a strict ketogenic diet my first six weeks getting back on the ketones which helped a lot to get my body burning some serious fat for fuel.
But after a while, I just didn’t feel like following a strict Keto diet was for me. I missed fruit (and carbs) and I’ve never liked fatty meats. So now I just try to eat healthy but I still eat carbs and have my cheats! It’s just so much easier not to overeat now…
The combination of drinking ketones, eating healthy and exercising helped my body fat drop from 25% to 18% in four months and I lost 17 lbs!
Since being back on ketones, I have my energy back, my mood is lifted, my skin is clear, and I’m a LOT more focused and productive in life.
As I write this, and I update this blog frequently (today is April 10, 2019), I’m still going strong. I keep my results and stay on track drinking 1, sometimes 2 servings per day and feel great!
What Inspired me to Try Ketones
My sister has had epilepsy since the age of 8 and her Dr.’s have always recommended a Ketogenic diet, but she has a hard time with diet restrictions, who doesn’t?
Drinking Keto OS gave her energy and helped suppress her appetite so she was able to make better food choices and get to those yoga and Orange Theory workouts. She lost a little over 11 lbs in 3 weeks!
I thank her all the time for introducing me to ketones! We have both kept our results by continuing to drink them daily! Ketones are really good for your brain!
How to Start Drinking Ketones
Many people ask me how to take Keto OS, and this is my recommendation:
- Drink 1-2 servings of Keto OS per day and a new diet will follow naturally – because you won’t be as hungry and your carb and sugar cravings will be minimized.
- Or you can use the MCT//143 or Keto Kreme and drink a fat coffee in the mornings, and a Keto Max in the afternoon. I use the MCT in my coffee everyday and drinking my ketones around 1:00!
Pruvit Keto OS Flavors – from Past to Present
The Original Keto OS Flavors
Pruvit brought their exogenous ketones to the market place using Dr. Dominic D’Agostino’s patented formula of ketones + MCT (medium chain triglycerides, which is fat extracted from coconut).
- Orange Dream tasted like an orange creamscicle and contained MCT, but it’s been retired.
- Keto OS Chocolate Swirl tastes like a tootsie roll but the only way I liked it was mixed with iced coffee and heavy whipping cream.
These two flavors are coming back soon in a ketone protein shake – Protone shake!
Keto Max Flavors
Max salts are different from the original OS salts. Max contained the most pure, most bio-available form of ketones, meaning your body can more easily absorb it so there’s a faster uptake, quicker peak, and provides more energy – Keto Max is 40% stronger than the original Keto OS.
All Keto Max/NAT flavors are gluten-free, dairy-free, Vegan and Kosher Certified and contain CMed 100 (AC-11) for DNA repair.
Many Max flavors were released like Raspberry Lemonade, Splash, Heart Tart and Swiss Cacao…too many to list but I’ve tried them all! Some are gone, but most are now in the new Keto NAT formula, Pruvit’s upgraded formula.
Pruvit Keto NAT Flavors
What is Keto NAT?
Keto NAT is Pruvit’s brand new formula – the worlds first all natural, fermented ketones and even more bioavailable.
Most of the former Keto Max flavors are now in the Keto NAT formula, so think of it as a “Max Upgrade.”
Keto NAT Flavors available for purchase TODAY:
- Keto NAT Maui Punch tastes just like a fruity punch! One of my all time faves, fruity deliciousness like a Hawaiian Punch
- Keto NAT Raspberry Lemonade is so refreshing and tastes great with a squeeze of fresh lemon! It’s the perfect mix of sweet and tart! Definitely a huge fan fave, if not THE most popular Pruvit flavor EVERRRR!
- Keto NAT Splash is a light, citrusy, watermelon-grapefruit fusion! The Splash is my sister’s favorite flavor!
- Keto NAT Lime Time is probably my favorite flavor of all time – it reminds me of lemon/lime gatorade – it’s soooo good! So light and so refreshing.
- Keto NAT Heart Tart reminds me of strawberry jello or a strawberry sweet-tart, it’s DELICIOUS! People ADORE Heart Tart.
- Keto Unleashed Blue Ocean – If you like Pina Coladas….:) Aside from the Lime, Blue Ocean is my favorite! Tropical blue Pina Colada flavor.
Keto NAT vs. Keto Unleashed
Pruvit’s Unleashed line of ketones is their “amped” ketones, with 30% more ketones and more caffeine than Keto NAT.
You will definitely feel the difference drinking the Unleashed line – it’s got over 17 grams BHB where Keto NAT has a little over 12.
I LOVE the Blue Ocean Unleashed…and I drink this one every day now. I just love the extra energy.
Pruvit Keto NAT and Keto Unleashed Special Flavors
It pays to be a Smartship customer, because many of the sales and special flavors are privy to those customers only. Here are some of the latest new unreleased flavors that you may only catch on a special sale or being a Smartship customer.
- Unleashed Ruby Rush tastes just like a red, juicy grapefruit, it’s delicious! AMAZING clean and sustained energy! Literally one keeps me going all day (same energy as the Blue Ocean).
- Keto Unleashed Eclipse is a black cherry flavor, and very smooth and with some hints of grape. I’m not a huge grape fan of anything, so it’s not my favorite but some love it. Eclipse is a revamped version of the original Black Midnight/White Midnight.
- Keto NAT Fairy Dust – love this one! It tastes like a “berry tea”
- Keto NAT Celebration – light pear flavor.
- Keto NAT Holy Grail – coconut lemon, I taste more lemon than coconut! Some say it reminds them of a lemon bar. I feel this one has a stronger flavor than most.
Keto Kreme with Functional Fat Technology (FFT™)
Keto Kreme is a fat supplement powder you mix with your coffee or tea that’s great for boosting fat loss, an energy and brain boost, and is very filling and yummy!
What’s in Keto Kreme?
- Healthy serving of fat (12 grams) made from coconut oil, MCT Powder (Medium Chain Triglycerides) and sweetened with stevia.
- Four different patented collagen formulas, new “Functional Fat Technology” *FFT
- Collagen, which benefits: hair, skin, nails
- Can even mix with just water and ice as a shake
- CMed 100 (AC-11) for DNA Repair
- Great for intermittent fasting “fat fasting” or drink a Keto NAT in the morning and “break” your fast with a serving of the Keto Kreme at lunchtime, keep fasting until you’re hungry. Or, drink 30 minutes before dinner to fill you up (so you eat a smaller meal).
Keto Reboot 60 Hour Fast
Pruvit’s new Keto Reboot (on sale each month from 1st – 5th) is becoming a very popular way to reset your metabolism for a full body reset. A lot of changes can be made in 60 hours and bad habits broken.
The Keto Reboot was an AMAZING experience, and I’ve done it several times. Some people do it monthly and if you have weight to lose, do it! Keto Reboot is a 60 hour fast (no food) using Keto Max, Keto Kalm Tea, Keto Broth, and Signal-OS capsules for DNA repair.
But don’t think of the Keto Reboot as a quick fix, you’ll definitely want to just drink ketones on the regular as well.
Testing your Ketone Levels
Drinking one serving of Pruvit’s Keto OS “Bio-hacks” your body into ketosis in under an hour.
In fact, you can pee on a ketone test strip 45-60 minutes after you drink it to “pruvit.”
These are available at drug stores, and you can read about testing for ketones here.
However, don’t get too hung on on peeing on stuff. Blood ketone tests are far more accurate than urine strips but they’ll give you an idea when you’re first getting started. Once you’re in ketosis for a while (especially if you are following a keto diet), your body will start to utilize the ketones more efficiently.
On an average day (before drinking ketones) my blood ketone level is around 1.1 – I’m usually in a mild state of ketosis anyway from simply intermittent fasting everyday (even eating carbs, yes!)
After drinking one serving of Keto OS, I shoot up to about 3.1. I’ve even shot up to 7 with the Unleashed products when I was fasted just on black coffee and ketones (sometimes I do some longer intermittent fasting days).
This is how ketones raise your levels to an OPTIMAL benefit even if you’re not following a ketogenic diet! I don’t count calories, macros, etc. Who has time for that? I eat when I’m hungry….and I try to eat healthy, enough said. It’s what works for me…
The Keto Mojo is really good if you’re looking for a true blood ketone/glucose meter and they offer free shipping. I also test my fasting glucose levels with the same kit (just different strips).
Does Keto OS Have Any Side Effects?
Like any supplement, not everyone will have the same exact experience. If you’re sensitive to caffeine and drink the Charged version late in the day, then you may have trouble falling asleep, just like coffee may keep you up.
If you don’t normally drink coffee or have caffeine, get the decaf. It puts you into ketosis just the same.
I can tell you I can drink a Keto NAT charged late in the day and have no trouble falling asleep, Unleashed will keep me up so I make sure to drink it earlier.
Some people report an upset stomach when they are adjusting to ketones and this is the reason to start with half a pack for at least a few days, or longer if necessary. This mostly happened with the original Orange Dream since it contained MCT.
How I Feel Drinking Daily Ketones
I’ve been sailing through each day no longer experiencing those slumps of energy like I used to. No more brain fog, and no more afternoon coffee. Much more focused!
I’ve also been powering through my workouts at the gym and pushing myself whereas before I might just stop when it got too tough.
It gives me energy to get my butt to the gym when I would sometimes blow it off….you know how that goes. Half the battle is getting there!
Even my volleyball game has improved. Having the endurance to play game after game has been easier, more fun, and made me more competitive! I never go to play ball without drinking a full Charged on the way!
How to Purchase Keto OS & How Much Does it Cost?
The only place to purchase Keto OS is online from their official website from an affiliated Pruvit partner like me. I help a lot of people on this journey and I would love to help you!
It comes with a 100% 30-day money back guarantee, and they will refund up to 90 days of sealed packages.
The cost varies depending on how much you buy, and if there’s one drawback to this product, it would be that it’s a bit pricey!
However, Pruvit is worth EVERY penny. They make the most natural and strongest ketone product on the market, with the best flavors.

How Women Found This Review:and keto os reviews, and keto os scam, and pruvit reviews, and keto os, and keto//os reviews, and keto/os reviews
I am impressed so far. I mostly lift weights and wanted to get "shredded" or lean out. Keto is giving me energy to push through the burn and suppress my late night munchies, which is probably what was keeping me from meeting my goals. For only being on it two weeks, I'm already seeing a difference. I feel leaner and less bloated for sure. I also seem to not get as sore from my workouts. Great stuff so far so good.
I started drinking Keto a couple of weeks ago, bought the 30 pack to try for a month. My energy is through the roof and I've lost 6 lbs. It gives me steady energy throughout the day and I don't crash like I used to. Good stuff. I know this review was from a women's point of view, but it works well for guys just the same. Do some research on this product and you'll see it does a lot more than weight loss.
I work in an office of overweight people. I've lost 15 lbs this month drinking keto twice a day. Charged in the morning and decaf in the afternoon. People are asking me my secret so now we have a keto os fat loss group at work. Some of us have also been walking for 30 minutes during lunch. I'm still new to keto but it's exciting to be the start of something great and we are all eager to get our health back!
Great for energy
I have loved how much energy I have since I started the keto. I have energy all day and never get sleepy in the afternoons. I used to go for coffee but don't feel the need anymore. It gives me energy to take care of my kids when I get home also. I'm losing inches and feeling great!
I lost 2.5 lbs my first day...
I started drinking Keto yesterday and wanted to share my experience. I drank half a pack of the charged at 7:30 am. I wasn't hungry all day but forced myself to have small snacks and a healthy, low carb dinner. I don't know if I was bloated before but I woke up this morning and had lost 2.5 lbs! I had a little trouble going to sleep last night probably because I didn't exercise to burn off any of the caffeine affect. I am going to drink half another couple of days before drinking a whole one. I'm loving this stuff so far! I am over the moon how it helps to kill my appetite and late night snacking!

Q: When I drink on an empty stomach in the morning I don't get hungry until sometimes 1:00. Is this bad to not eat for that long? It suppresses my appetite so much I almost have to remind myself/force myself to eat. I did read something about intermittent fasting but I wasn't sure if that was the best way. Should I eat even if I'm not hungry? I've lost 10 lbs in two weeks! And easily! Thanks. -Tiffany

I also gained 40 pounds from no activity. Steroids and stress eating. I heard Keto/os might help. I purchased and notice I am in ketosis an hour after taking it but get not a trace within 2-3 hours. Does this mean it's not working for me? is it safe to take several times a day? -Michelle
