Keto 101

The ketogenic diet is a low-carb, high-fat and moderate-protein diet that alters the body’s metabolism to use fat as the preferred fuel, rather than sugars. When your body enters a fat-burning zone it creates ketones for energy, leading to weight loss and the following benefits:

1. Fat burning 

2. Metabolism support

3. Sustained energy

4. Muscle recovery

5. Improved cognitive function and focus

Key Keto Ingredients


Medium Chain Triglycerides (MCTs)

Product: Key ingredient of Nature’s Way KetoDiet Capsules and Nature’s Way KetoDiet Shakes.

What is it: MCTs are highly valued in the Ketogenic diet as a good fat, derived from Coconuts. These good fats help to fuel ketosis when following the ketogenic diet. During Ketosis your body enters into the fat-burning zone where it uses fat for energy.


Apple Cider Vinegar

Product: Key ingredient of Nature’s Way KetoDiet Capsules.

What is it: Apple Cider Vinegar is a naturally fermented superfood. The powder extract is produced through a drying process that maintains the goodness from liquid to powder by preserving ‘the mother’, which contains the acetic acid to support digestive vitality.



Product: Key ingredient of Nature’s Way KetoDiet Capsules.

What is it: L-carnitine is an amino acid that helps to move fatty acids from the blood into the mitochondria, the energy producing “furnaces” in the cells, so that the fatty acids can be used as energy.
