KetoCaNa contains 11.7 grams per serving of the ketone body Beta-Hydroxybutyrate (BHB) in a delicious, lightly-flavoured orange base. It contains no artificial sweeteners, flavours or colours.
KetoSports KetoCaNa Orange Review:
The product claims to provide an energy boost and an improved mental focus. We found that there was no immediate rush of energy, but those products that take longer to work will probably feel this. In practice we found that we felt a mental clarity and a sharpness to our thinking, which could be quite addictive, and this helped us to concentrate better. It also made us enjoy life more.
For those who had been used to taking ketone salts with BHB at a high concentration, using ketocalans at lower concentrations can be a little disconcerting. Beta-Hydroxybutyrate builds up in the body slowly when taken in this way, and it takes a few weeks before the body can convert this into Acetoacetate. Acetoacetate is the subunit of acetoacetate (AcAc or Beta-Hydroxybutyrate). In other words, it turns into BHB. If you take a lot of BHB with Acetoacetate, you start the process in a less efficient way, hence the higher concentrations of BHB. And since ketocana is absorbed quickly, the concentration of BHB can not build up this way.
Made in a lab in Amsterdam, ketocana is designed to give keto dieters what they feel they need, not what they want.
In general, nitrates are thought to be beneficial for cardiovascular health, although studies on the long-term use of nitrates are very scarce and conflicting, and there’s some evidence that nitrates may not actually be beneficial for the heart. This makes their inclusion in this product a little worrying.
If you’re already trying to lose weight and you have a well-managed diabetic diet, then it should be safe to use without worry. This should be taken with your doctor’s advice if you have any kind of health issues or medical problems.
The most noticeable side effect of this product is a slight “buzz” of energy. This should not be mistaken for any crash of energy. However if you are already a regular caffeine user (coffee, tea, energy drinks) then it may be worth avoiding.
The product’s website and e-mails recommend taking this product with the natural supplement CoQ10. This is likely due to their natural synergy – each product helps to reduce the other risk of the other product (see below). The e-mail series also suggested try taking some probiotics with it (L. reuteri) as these are proven to help BHB absorb properly into the system.
Beta-Hydroxybutyrate, the main ketone is metabolised by the liver, so it is best to be taken a bit earlier in the evening, and not with a big meal. This will help to build up a better concentration of ketones, which is good for both weight loss and mental health when used properly (for more information on the different ways of taking ketone supplements, see the above-linked article).
KetoSports KetoCaNa Orange Review:
The method of use most commonly recommended is to take this product in the evening before going to bed, as this allows the body to more easily absorb the BHB and also gives it enough time to build up in the concentration.
A tablet to take containing two grams of BHB is known as a “dose”; one containing 10 grams is called a “serving”. A tablet to take containing 10 grams is labelled a “compensation”. The graph below shows you what the suggested dosing amounts are for each of these.
One tablet three times a day is all that is needed. Dosing is important, but also does depend on the sensitivity of your body.
In a review of other keto products on KD, the price for a 10 gram serving of this product was $66.50 (US). Here on Amazon, the same product is listed at $95.23. This seems to be the biggest price difference between brands.
The cost of the product is the most significant limiting factor as far as a recommendation goes. Having said that, much of the pricing we have seen is for bulk quantities. The product itself costs $66.50 for a 5-capsule bottle, and this price only just covers the cost of the production (lab and manufacturing materials). Though the cost of production is $12.11 per gram, so the cost of the
